Hitachi 24HE2100 : a television set Direct LED entry-level

Presentation of the Hitachi 24HE2100

Hitachi is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 24HE2100, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
First, the size : 24 inches on this device.
Surely considering this price you couldn’t expect something excessive. You can comfort yourself with the thought that it is a mass of technology.
Beside, this television is equipped with a Full HD resolution.  From our point of view it is interesting. Given the price, this model appears as a good choice. Not too expensive but anyway it is made with elements which we think will withstand in the long run .
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.

The design of the Hitachi 24HE2100

The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
The design of the Hitachi 24HE2100 has nothing to do with that of the other models in the Hitachi HE2000 series.
Who said that entry-level products could not benefit from quality design? That’s the thought we can face each other with this TV set. That nothing is impossible for Hitachi.
This Hitachi 24HE2100 is rather flat.
With its screen surface of 24 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed, it has a simple base, which fits perfectly into the decor, giving you a sense of unity and elegance.The shape of the base is in the shape of a pedestal.In conclusion, even if design is important, it is not on this point that we judge the 24HE2100. You can put it in your living room ,it will not look out of place.

TV screen presentation Hitachi 24HE2100

The new Hitachi offers an image with disappointing contrasts. It has pale, dark and shallow colours. This translates into completely washed out blacks that do not allow you to enjoy a movie properly in the dark.
Hitachi remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
The Hitachi television set displays a Full HD resolution. It’s better than the others for a TV in its class.
In addition, with a screen of 24 inches, the 24HE2100 is among the most models in its category.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Full HD quality resolution.
In conclusion on the display, with the 24HE2100 Hitachi helps you to choose a low-end TV set, which will be perfectly at home in your kitchen.

24HE2100 from Hitachi – The sound

In general, the sounds are well reproduced; but you have to forget about bass and low-midrange. It will be preferable to use an external system to enjoy better audio immersion.
The television set is equipped with  two loudspeakers for a sound power of 2.5 W.

In conclusion, the sound of this TV will barely play all the sounds. Bad in the high notes and in the low notes. It’s not great; but that’s enough for this range.

Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set Hitachi 24HE2100

It has almost become a habit for Hitachi, this 24HE2100 has its operating system SmartVue; It will allow you to happily explore a number of entertainment options.
You will also be able to access the Internet, either through your Wi-Fi connection, or for the most geek among you via the LAN; you will then be able to download a whole bunch of applications and movies.

Presentation of the connection technology of Hitachi 24HE2100

The connection system consists of the minimum number of elements. The adepts of televisions in local network version will be disappointed by the lack of possibilities in terms of ports and inputs.
You will need to carefully choose the devices you want to connect to this 24HE2100. The reason? there are few choices in terms of available connectors.

This model has a total of 8 connections, not too bad. Not all of your devices will be able to be connected. A difficult choice is on the way.

In clear, the connections available on this model are:
1 USB port, 2 HDMI ports, 2 audio outputs, 1 antenna input, 1 component plug (Video), 1 composite plug (Y/Pb/Pr)

Our conclusion on the Hitachi 24HE2100

With the intention of making a difference this new 24HE2100 Hitachi intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
With a smart TV technology, you benefit from a relevant choice for a top-of-the-range model. Really interesting.
This model uses Direct LED technology for its display. The result is good: the lighting is uniform and the contrast is pleasant.
In parallel, it will be necessary to add an important parameter: the price. You have here a television set whose price is very competitive compared to its competitors. In other words, including your final decision, you will have to take into account the fact that this is a television set that displays all your video sources correctly and allows you to have a very well defined image in all circumstances.

Finally, we will note all the positive points that are to be added to the credit of this television set. Here are 3 that I find interesting:
