Hitachi 24HE2100 : the new Full HD
Hitachi is now an important television manufacturer, and proposes this basic model 24HE2100, a possible choice tested by our Laboratory.
First of all, regarding the size of the screen, we are facing a 24 inches.
It is a small model. It will be more complicated for you to watch films or matches with all tour friends around.
In addition this Hitachi displays a Full HD resolution. The television set is an entry-level product; it therefore faces competitors with similar resolution screen.
Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.
TV design presentation Hitachi 24HE2100
The first thing we always do is to analyze the design since it is the first thing that is obvious and also because it is important.
The design of the Hitachi 24HE2100 has nothing to do with that of the other models in the Hitachi HE2000 series.
Who said that entry-level products could not benefit from quality design? That’s the thought we can face each other with this TV set. That nothing is impossible for Hitachi.
The Hitachi 24HE2100 is simply flat.
With its glass surface of 24 inches, it has a typical piano black color.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed, it has a simple base, which fits perfectly into the decor, giving you a sense of unity and elegance.In addition, its support is of the pedestal type.In short, the Hitachi does the right thing on this model. An entry-level TV for which we would have liked more design work. With this Hitachi 24HE2100, no frills. Basic and that’s almost all. It could even be one of those TV sets you turn on to listen to the news; like a radio.
24HE2100 from Hitachi – The screen
Even on an entry-level model, the display restitution on this Hitachi works very well. The image is faithful and allows to benefit from a clear rendering, without distorting the original source.
With this new 24HE2100 Hitachi, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image.
With regard to the display, the company proposes a Full HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
In addition, with a screen of 24 inches, the 24HE2100 is at the bottom of its range.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
In addition, Hitachi has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Full HD image resolution.
Thus, the Hitachi 24HE2100 allows you to have a device in another room (the kitchen for example), without too much affecting your budget.
TV sound presentation Hitachi 24HE2100
For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
The television set is equipped with two speakers for a sound power of 2.5 W.
In short, sound is not the characteristic that will make you buy the 24HE2100 Hitachi. Low quality; enough choice to listen to the news or let children watch their educational programs.
