Oh how we love Hitachi.
They were the makers of the best big screen TVs for years
. Hitachi has always been on the forefront of
innovation and their newest plasma is not letting us down - not at all. Unlike Samsung seems to be
Hitachi is loading their newest flat panels with tons of inputs. Most importantly is that this 42-inch HD
plasma has three
HDMI inputs - two on the back on and one on the side. Same goes for the component inputs -
two on the back and one on the front. Hitachi has also thrown in anti-reflective glass and a new native resolution for
this panel. Most high-def plasmas are 720p natively but this one is 1080i with the native resolution of 1024x1080. Keep
'em coming Hitachi.
The plasma is going to retail for $2499 and should be available soon.[UPDATE} Here is a great forum post on the
confusing resolution issue.
