49R81 : Hitachi has a display Direct LED

Presentation of the Hitachi 49R81

Hitachi ranks among the important actors on the television market, and proposes with this 49R81, an interesting screen tested by our Laboratory.
Beside, this television is equipped with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Hitachi have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Why can we consider this 49R81 as convincing in spite of its mid-range position ? This is what we are going to discover in this article.

The design of the Hitachi 49R81

Sober but in line with current trends. Hitachi has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The shapes are balanced and the overall rendering is beautiful to look at. A successful mid-range model.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

49R81 from Hitachi – The screen

The Hitachi could hardly do better than this 49R81 with a Direct LED screen.
Hitachi remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. 
The Hitachi 49R81 is available in the Ultra HD 4K resolution. Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Designed with a frequency of 50 Hz, you will have a good image quality; but don’t get carried away. It won’t be as detailed as reality.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Ultra HD 4K quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The sound of the Hitachi 49R81

It is the custom to say that a good sound comes from a device with a lot of watts, however Hitachi has managed to combine average audio system power with very good sound quality.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two speakers and provides a sound power of 8 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 49R81 Hitachi is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

The Intelligent aspect of the Hitachi 49R81

On the software side, the Hitachi 49R81 is equipped with the operating system Roku TV; You will have plenty of time to discover the world of entertainment.
This TV offers you the choice of connectivity: Whether through its Wifi function, or through the local network with other devices or computer devices (fixed or mobile computers, NAS synology for example), your TV 49R81 is communicating.

In clear, the connections available on this model are:
1 USB port, 2 HDMI ports, 1 component plug (Video)
