Hitachi P50H401The Hitachi P50H401 50″ Plasma TV is a mid-range HDTV suitable for the average television user. With a large 50″ display, you get a pretty decent picture at a reasonable price. The P50h401 set features a pretty standard design with a black case. It’s not an overly flashy TV but still looks good. It includes a tabletop stand but wall-hanging packages are also available.

Hitachi P50H401 Wrap-Up
The Hitachi P50H401 lives up to its mid-level status. It includes all the features the average TV user would need and saves you a few bucks by not throwing in some extra features you may never need. The picture definitely isn’t quite as good as a high-end Plasma which you may notice in the deep black colors. For most users the picture will appear outstanding but die-hard HD fans may notice a few imperfections. Overall, this Plasma is a great, low-priced option for its size. If you’re looking for a large Plasma display at a reasonable price, the Hitachi P50H401 is a wonderful option.
