Hitachi P50X902 Review: 50” Plasma TV

Up for review: Hitachi P50X902. Hitachi’s P50X902, a new 50-inch Plasma flat-panel TV from its high-end Director Series, is a pioneer of a new technical breed of HDTV’s. The translucent beveled edge of this HDTV is a stand out from other HDTV’s typical glossy-black frame. This plasma TV can be swiveled 30° in either direction through a motorized pivot which is attached with the oval-shaped base. Priced at around $3,199.98, the Hitachi P50X902 is a little pricey but packed with features and style.

With the 16:9 aspect ratio including a bit-for-bit mode with no overscan and 4:3 zoom modes, the new Hitachi P50X902 offers a wider image position setup options. And the Color Management option allows you to adjust the brightness of all the primary and secondary colors through an onscreen honeycomb grid. There is even a Color Decoding menu which lets you adjust the red and green balance as per DVD’s color-decoder pattern.

Another striking feature of the P50X902 Plasma HDTV is its backlit learning remote which through its 10-step macros makes the switching source a one-touch operation. Even the menu system of this new P50X902 model is quite attractive with useful video tweaks.
