ABOUT THIS TV

Hitachi 43HK5600 400x400 Image Hitachi 43HK5600

The 43HK5600 is a 43 inch 4K TV from Hitachi, launched in the year 2021. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

Hitachi did not provide 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. Undoubtedly The color quality on this TV will be Lifelike!

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a display is a measure of the range of colors that it can display.

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

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

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

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

Understanding the static contrast ratio

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

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

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

Also, a TV with high constrast ratio allows 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 features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming backlight technology which is a plus.

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

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. 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, since this is not a cheap TV from Hitachi, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

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.

Although for better experience, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The TV measures 43 inches vertically and 38.58 inches horizontally. It weighs 5.4 Kgs and 1.8 kgs extra if you include stand.

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 100 x 100 mm. There is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support on this TV.

Hardware and Audio

The internals of this TV is powered by 4-Core CPU. There is no mention about the RAM on the TV's official specsheet.

The Operating System on this TV is Android 10.

To connect USB devices, it includes one USB 2.0 port. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 1x AV Component In (YPbPr + L/R) (via PC input), 1x Antenna (RF) (female), 1x CI+ 1.4 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.

Coming to audio, Hitachi has provided 2 x 10W speakers on the TV.

Now, coming to power usage, the TV uses 86.4W on average and 0.5W on standby.
