Hitachi 37 LD9000TA LCD TV

Speaking of LCD TVs, I feel 26 and 32 inchers are too small (hypocrite that I am), and 40 inch and above won't let you enjoy after you hear their price. A 37-inch screen sort of hits a sweet spot between high-end and entry-level flat panel TVs. As soon as I was struck by this award-winning idea, I hooked up some 37 inch LCDs from vendors, hoping to have some fun – and of course review them for you.

Ah, Hitachi. This Japanese company started off as an electrical repair shop back in 1910, and a century later we can see the progress it's made. As a TV manufacturer it has a great reputation... almost any Hitachi I've reviewed has got high ratings. But no two models are the same, so I shall adopt a neutral stance and hope this one lives up to the reputation Hitachi has carved for itself.

Design and Features
A striking color contrast is evident as you fix your eyes on the unit. It has an aluminum-colored speaker panel on the bottom, which is married to a dense black bezel. No gloss anywhere, just a mild metallic luster on the stand and speaker – which incidentally are similar in their exoskeleton. Points for this, because I hate gloss actually (no offense meant to Samsung!)

There are the basic connections on the side, namely S-video and composite types. The main doors are at the back panel, on a step facing downwards.
