ABOUT THIS TV

Hitachi 43HL7300 400x400 Image Hitachi 43HL7300

The 43HL7300 is a 43 inch 4K TV from Hitachi, launched in the year 2021. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel.

It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

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 accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!

What is Color gamut ?

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

A TV with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will not be pretty to look at.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020.

But don't worry, 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 substantially.

The importance of static contrast ratio

There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio as dynamic doesn't matter much.

Static contrast defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio < 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Note that, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.

Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, 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 display deep blacks. For the record, it also comes with local dimming feature which is a plus.

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

As for brightness, the peak brightness the TV can produce is 350 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by Direct LED technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can safely 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 take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV from Hitachi, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input lag ?

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

Although for better experience, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

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

The TV measures 43 inches vertically and 37.95 inches horizontally. In terms of thickness, it is 2.6 inches thick. It weighs approximately 6.44 KGs and an additional 1.8 kgs if you include stand.

Hardware and Audio

The core of Hitachi 43HL7300 is powered by 4-Core CPU. There is no data about the RAM on this TV.

For display connectivity, Hitachi has provided three HDMI 2.0 (ARC; CEC) ports on this TV.

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

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 10W speakers.

Now, coming to power consumption, on average, it consumes about 54 watts. On standby, it uses 0.5 watts.

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