Hitachi 55R83 : a middle range Direct LED television set

Presentation of the Hitachi 55R83

Hitachi unveils a new model equipped with all the current expected sophistications, the 55R83.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Hitachi have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Through our review today, you will understand why the Hitachi 55R83 is ranked among the best TVs of the moment.

55R83 from Hitachi – Design

Sober but in line with current trends. Hitachi has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
A good overall score for this TV; it corresponds to design in the spirit of the times. A quality of materials and a visual aspect that does not make you insensitive.
In conclusion, Hitachi has worked seriously on the design of this TV set. It’s efficient and it will allow you with this 55R83 to have a beautiful object in your living room.

The screen of the Hitachi 55R83

The Hitachi has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new 55R83 Hitachi, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
With a frequency of 50 Hz, you will have a good image quality; but don’t get carried away. It won’t be as detailed as reality.
In addition, Hitachi has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Ultra HD 4K image resolution.
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is interesting and effective; it is a mid-range TV that is worth the detour.

55R83 from Hitachi – The sound

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the 55R83 still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two baffles for a sound power of 10 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The 55R83 Hitachi is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

55R83 from Hitachi – Embedded intelligence

As with many other TV sets, the 55R83 has its operating system Roku TV installed; it allows you to explore a whole universe of entertainment.
This TV’s Internet access is possible either via Wi-Fi or via a LAN local network and you have the possibility to download a wide variety of applications and movies.

55R83 from Hitachi – Its connectivity

Whether it’s your external hard drive, NAS or game console, all these elements can be connected to this TV.
