Any important issues i need to be aware of??? I currently own a couple of HDTV's (Sony), was looking at the 70XBR2 but it was out of my budget, ran across the Hitachi and i couldn't pass up the deal. Please help with any and all information possible. Thanks in advance for everyone's help, Zeb.
I have owned the Hitachi 70VS810 with matching stand for 2 years and found it amazing vs. the Sony LCD set I almost bought myself at the same time.
FYI, I found the set settings out-of-box almost perfect to begin with and adjusted the colour to my personal taste as it has many of them.
The day and night settings I ignored and I use the daytime one as I find the night setting washes out the blacks and good contrast this set can provide.
If you get to the Hitachi website, you should still be able to find the user data you seek for this set.
Whatever price you got for this Hitachi set, I am certain it was half the selling price of the current same size Sony 1080p set as when I bought my set new as it was this price about 2 years ago, so you probably got great deal.
Hope this assists you.
