ABOUT THIS TV

Launched in the year 2021, the 32HAE4350 is a 32" Full HD TV from Hitachi. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel.

The max. resolution it can achieve is 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 70 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important feature of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to take a guess. Now, since the TV comes with a 10bit IPS panel, we can safely assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 100% or above. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike!

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut specification of a TV is a measure of the range of colors that the TV can display.

A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

The importance of static contrast ratio

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that might look dusty as shown below.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can see, this will impact your experience considerably.

Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio allows you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.

There's no mention of this spec in the TV's official specsheet. So we have to make an assumption again based on the TV's other specifications. Most IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Considering its a mid-range Full HD TV, we can imagine the ratio would be on the upper side, that is atleast 1200:1.

HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR and HDR10 are also supported on this TV.

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits, which is powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you should take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. Now, IPS panels in general are infamous for high input lags and response times. So, expect the input lag to be greater than 20ms. Though, Non-FPS and casual games should be playable.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

But ideally, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Speaking of ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the TV, you can make use of the VESA mount provided with this TV, which by the way has an interface size of 75 x 75 mm. Swivel, Tilt or Pivot features are not supported on this unit.

Vertically, the TV measures 32 inches and horizontally 28.9 inches. Coming to thickness, it is 3 inches thick.

It weighs 3.56 Kgs and 1.2 kgs extra if you include stand.

Hardware and Audio

The Hitachi 32HAE4350 comes with a 4-Core CPU. There is no mention about the RAM on the TV's specsheet.

The Operating System on this TV is Android TV.

For display connectivity, Hitachi has provided three HDMI 1.4 (ARC; CEC) ports, one D-sub (15-pin) port, one AV Composite In (Video + L/R) port and one AV Component In (YPbPr + L/R) (via D-Sub) port on this TV.

For connecting USB devices, it includes two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x CI+ 1.4, 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Speaking of speakers, Hitachi has provided 2 x 6W built-in speakers on the TV.

As for power usage, on average, this TV consumes about 51.2 Watts and on standby, it uses 0.5 Watts.

For powering this unit, you'll need an 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz outlet.
