Hitachi 50v715 LCD TV/ 50vs810 LCD TV

by -Dman100- / August 24, 2005 11:20 AM PDT

Hello,

I'm looking to buy a LCD TV and was looking at the Hitachi 50" TV's. I'm not too familiar with the new technology for the big screens.

Is the Hitachi 50v715 and 50vs810 using LCD DLP technology or is it projection? I've heard that projection can cause screen burn. These models say LCD, but then I saw the information say rear projection. I was a little confused.

Also, are these HDTV ready? I believe they are, but wanted to confirm.

Any information is appreciated.
Thanks,
-D-

Thanks for replying to my post. I appreciate the information.

Is the rear projection LCD have any problems with screen burn?

Is the direct view, DLP technology? Or is DLP another type of technology?

Thanks again for your help.
Regards,

the lcd direct view uses a back light and the projection uses a halogen lamp with 3 silicon chips.

Extensive research has been done and there is no direct proof that lcd's have burn in though over time they can have screen aging or pixel loss but it is very minimal and you will probably never notice it.

DLP is a reflective technology using a light engine and a color wheel which reflects off of 900,000-2000000 microscopic mirrors.


And to answer the original question the major difference with the 2 models is that the VS810 uses a dual focus lens system and the 715 uses a single lens system. The 810 will usually give you a better picture and yes both have HD tuners built in so they will have everything that you need for HD.

In reply to: re

I would check their warranty I have a 50" plazma that has been waiting for two months to be fixed. The part to fix it has been given a new eta 5 different times. Hitachi says maybe the end of the month(Sept '05). Hitachi has washed their hands of my problem. They say it is up to the warranty company that I purchased it from. I purchased Hitachi's extended warranty thru SatisFusion (Warranty Corporation of America provides service). Use caution I still don't have an operating TV. The warranty company says its Hitachi Hitachi says the warranty company. I hope you consider this in your equation. Thanks
