ABOUT THIS TV

Hitachi 50HK5300 400x400 Image Hitachi 50HK5300

The 50HK5300 is a 50 inch 4K TV from Hitachi, launched in the year 2021. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel.

It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important spec of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that.

Considering the TV features a 50 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike! It will produce accurate colors.

What Color Gamut means ?

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

Meaning, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB, NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Other than color accuracy, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality substantially.

What is Static Contrast ratio ?

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

The static contrast ratio of above TV is 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.

This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., well enough to achieve 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, it can go as bright as 350 nits, which is powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are going to use the TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, you should get a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming however, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

Unfortunately, Hitachi did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input lag ?

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

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

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, 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 200 x 200 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Vertically, the TV measures 50 inches and horizontally 44.49 inches.

It is 3.23 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 8.66 KGs and an additional 1.8 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Hardware and Audio

The Hitachi 50HK5300 comes with a 4-Core CPU. However, Hitachi didn't provide any specification about the total RAM on the TV's official specsheet.

To power its UI, the TV runs Android 10 Operating System.

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

For connecting USB devices, it includes 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 wireless connectivity, the manufacturer has provided a 5Ghz Wi-Fi, 2.5 Ghz Wi-Fi, Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Now, for audio, it is packaged with 2 x 10W built-in speakers.

Speaking of power consumption, the TV uses 113.6 watts on average and 0.5 watts on standby.

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