Hitachi appears to me to have about the best picture available with its LED HD TV. Set up was easy. Although it comes with four HDMI inputs, I found myself wishing for more. However they are located at an easy to reach place on the side rear of the television to swap out for other HDMI connections. (One of my daughter's games also uses an HDMI connection.) I am using one HDMI connection for cable, one for a blu-ray DVD player, one for an all-region DVD player, and one for a VCR/DVD combo that records on both medias.
Although I have not yet tried the PC input, I did play a video from my laptop using one of the HDMI inputs that turned out great.
On some of my cheaper DVD's the sound was weak on the media and the volume on the television by itself was not as much as I would have liked. However, the audio system that I connected to the television gave me more volume than I would ever want.
The Hitachi TV remote worked well adding control of the cable box, Blu-Ray DVD, etc.
I have a previous Hitachi TV that is now about 11 years old and has never had a problem and has a great picture now, even though it is not HD. This brand seems to have quality built in.
The smaller 42 inch version of this LED TV in Germany cost 50% more than this larger 46 inch TV, but was dual voltage and had more input terminals in the back.
Altogether, this was a good price for a television with one of (if not the best) picture available and reliable quailty (from my experience with Hitachi).
