Hitachi 17ld4200 / Not a TV

United States
Contact information:

I chose the Hitachi 17LD4200 TV because it had component connections for my DVD player. However, on delivery, it became very obvious that this is a computer monitor first, and TV functions have been added. Tragically the TV tuner they have chosen to use is, going by my experiences, a cheap and less than cheerful one. There is no auto set-up for channel tuning, and the manual set-up is confusing and slow. The picture, using a plain old analogue aerial was truly woeful. The old portable that this LCD TV was supposed to replace gave a crystal clear picture, yet the Hitachi had terrible 'snow' on all channels. It also has no auto-aspect feature, so it's 16:9 or 4:3, that's it. DVD picture was good using the component connections but there's no way it made up for the terrible TV performance. No Scart connection for SKY either.
