ABOUT THIS TV

Hitachi 43HE4300 400x400 Image Hitachi 43HE4300

The 43HE4300 is a 43 inch Full HD TV from Hitachi. It was launched in 2021. It features a 10-bit IPS panel. It can achieve a max resolution of 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 51 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.

Hitachi has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that.

Considering the TV comes with a 10bit IPS panel, we can safely assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 100% or above. The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike!

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can display.

In other words, this specification indicates the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A panel with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality the same way.

Understanding the static contrast specification

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 muddy as shown in below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can imagine, this will affect your experience considerably.

Also note, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.

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

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to achieve deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming backlight which is a plus.

HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR and HDR10 are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 300 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are not into gaming, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to 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 come with high input lags and response times. So, expect the input lag to be 20ms or above. Though, Non-FPS and casual games should be playable.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the latency at which your inputs changes the content of your TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 38.31 inches and 23.46 inches respectively. It is just 3.23 inches thick.

It weighs around 5.17 KGs, another 1.8 kgs if you include stand.

Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 100 x 100 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Hardware and Audio

The Hitachi 43HE4300 comes with a Quad Core CPU. However, Hitachi didn't provide any specification about the available RAM on this 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, you will have one USB 2.0 port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x CI+ 1.4, 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For wireless connections, you will have — Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Coming to audio, Hitachi has provided 2 x 8W speakers on the TV.

Now, coming to power consumption, this TV consumes 42 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

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