Hitachi UltraVision UltraThin LED TVs

Hitachi is back.

After reportedly ceasing production of TVs and skipping the Consumer Electronics Show the past couple of years, Hitachi is introducing a new line of UltraVision UltraThin LED TVs.

The Smart 3D TVs, available in 48- and 55-inch versions, feature with built-in Wi-Fi, Netflix, Vudu Apps and YouTube.

The Platinum Series is similar, but instead of built-in streaming services the TVs are Roku Stick compatible. Just plug in a Roku stick, sold separately, and hundreds of Roku services are available.

Hitachi will also offer three Value Series lines. All three lines are thin bezel edge-lit LED TVs with Dolby Digital, PicturePerfect Video Processor, PC Input via RGB and a Sleep Timer. Prices on the value models range from $899 to $329.

Hitachi ushered in the era of the really-thin flat screen TVs way back in 2007 with the world’s first 1.5-inch LCD TV. Glad to see Hitachi has returned.
