I am really pretty disappointed in the television that I just purchased. It was this Hitachi model and I expected it to be a lot better than it actually is. I hated the sound quality right away. You can hardly turn the volume up at all without the sound quality getting absolutely ruined. And forget about listening to any music on THIS television. Any bass at all makes the speakers like buzz basically. Also, after we had had it for only a very short time the speaker on the right started cutting out every once in a while. It is very annoying and every time it does i wish i had decided to buy a different television than this one. The digital tuner also did go out on this television too. The final problem I had with this Hitachi television is how hot it made my bedroom. That is where I had this TV and I felt like the air conditioner had to fight against it just to keep the room cooled down. I guess it was really OK for the money I spent but i just wouldn't recommend it.
