ABOUT THIS TV

Hitachi 58HL7300 400x400 Image Hitachi 58HL7300

The 58HL7300 is a 58 inch 4K TV from Hitachi, launched in the year 2021. It features a 10-bit IPS panel. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 76 ppi.

Picture Quality

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

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that. Now, since the TV features a big 58 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. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! It is capable of producing accurate colors out of the box.

What is Color gamut ?

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

A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil the immersion.

Different manufacturers use different units to specify color gamut. Such as — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

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

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

The importance of static contrast ratio

A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep blacks and possibly 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 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. More is better.

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.

This TV is rated with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to produce deep blacks. The panel comes with local dimming technology which is a plus.

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR, HDR10 and Dolby Vision.

Coming to brightness, it can go as bright as 350 nits, which is powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV solely for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specs. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But since this is not a cheap TV, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which your 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.

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

Dimensions and Ergonomics

Vertically, the TV measures 58 inches and horizontally 50.94 inches.

It is just 2.6 inches thick.

It weighs around 13.72 KGs and 2.5 kgs extra including stand.

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 either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

Hardware and Audio

The Hitachi 58HL7300 comes with a Quad Core CPU. There is no mention about the available RAM on this TV.

For display connectivity, there are three HDMI 2.0 (ARC; CEC) ports on this TV.

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

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

In terms of power consumption, this TV consumes 70W on average and 0.5W on standby.

It supports a power outlet of 220 V - 240 V/50 Hz - 60 Hz.
