    I had a friend tell me last night that since Hitachi only focuses on TV's, they are the best brand name you can buy in HD. What would be the general response to that statement?

    thats a very general statement, like saying every bmw is better than every audi.

    models vary, they make some good and some crap like every other manufacturer.

    like people who will only buy sony stuff 'coz its the best', short sighted ignorance if ya ask me... :)

    Yes a very general statement indeed! Hitachi like most Japanese companies make so much more than tvs, they make everything from food processors to mobile phones, to DIY tools, to industrial equipment, power generation, medical equipment, etc etc etc!! And if you're talking audio/visual they do make dvd players, hifis, and in fact own denon! (didnt know that last one until a few minutes ago when i had a quick look on their website!)

    I didn't even know what to say when he told me that. I sort of just sat there and moved my head around like I was paying attention. I'm not sure where he came up with that.

    I would have laughed, but I really was sorta at a loss, not knowing how to answer that w/o being rude.

    I just found out that he bought a Hitachi Ultravision this weekend. When he told me, I did actually laugh a little bit. Not at the tv, but that he went and bought one after making the comments last week.

    I LOVE that he went and bought one after making the comment to me. i don't have the heart to make fun of him or joke around with him about it b/c he sunk so much money into the darn thing.

    Oh yeah. He's definitely happy, and I'm glad he is. Heck, if the tv is as nice as he says, I'll probably spend some time watching games over there.

    :thumbsup: hi, everyone just a silly question ( I think ) does Hitachi make their own panel?? and is it true that Sony, Thompson, and the new Panasonic panels are made by Hitachi too?? I work in comet and everytime the Hitachi Rep. visits us thats what he says.
