ABOUT THIS TV

Hitachi 32HK4800 400x400 Image Hitachi 32HK4800

The 32HK4800 is a 32 inch Full HD TV from Hitachi, launched in the year 2021. It features a True 8-bit IPS panel.

The maximum resolution it can display is 1920 x 1080 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 70 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.

Hitachi has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. So we have to take a guess. This unit comes with an IPS panel. These panels are known to produce great colors out of the box. By this, we can assume that the sRGB coverage (equivalent) on this TV to be 70% or above. Although it may not produce perfect colors, but for content viewing and gaming, it is good enough.

Understanding Color Gamut

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

Put Simply, this specification determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC, DCI P3 etc.

But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Next in the list that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding the static contrast specification

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and may bleed backlight as in the below image:

Backlight bleed exampleThe image is an example of another display, it is not this one

The above TV's static contrast is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More the better.

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

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to achieve deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10.

Coming to brightness, the peak luminance the Hitachi 32HK4800 can achieve is 250 nits with the help of Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you aren't into gaming, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

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

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the latency at which device inputs changes the content of your TV. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

For best of both worlds, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Coming to 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.

The TV measures 32 inches vertically and 28.58 inches horizontally. In terms of thickness, it is just 2.99 inches thick. It weighs 3.55 kgs and 1.2 kgs extra including stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Hardware and Audio

The TV is powered by Quad Core CPU. There is no data about the total RAM on the TV's official specsheet.

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

To connect USB devices, it includes one USB 2.0 port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x CI+ 1.3, 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, you will have — Wi-Fi (2.5Ghz) and Bluetooth.

For audio, Hitachi has provided 2 x 6W speakers on the TV.

Now, coming to power consumption, on average, it consumes around 51.2 Watts. On standby, it uses 0.5 Watts.

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