This TV has an in depth color setup, and 3 levels of black enhancement. It also sports three HDMI connections (two in back one one the side). The upper level menu functions are available from the TV panel such as changing the channel, and menu functions. There are 3 screen savers (user selectible) to be used to help with IR. The TV is cable card ready so if your provider has this say goodbuy to the 'ol cable box. In my area if I use the cable card I save $13 a month buy getting rid of the box as the card is only $1.50 a month. You still get all of the HD and programming just without the box. The overall picture is great on this TV. HD is nothing less than awesome. SD is great on some, not so great on other channels. The not so great I blame on systems outside my TV. I had to call support because I broke my remote the second day I had the TV. After going through some steps with the support tech we found the remote was bad. They sent one to me 2nd day air no charge, no questions. THAT is service....oh did I mention I spent more time getting through the automated menu on the phone then did waiting for a tech to answer? Not that the automated menu was long, they were just THAT fast getting me connected to a live AMERICAN ENGLISH SPEAKING person....did you hear that DELL, HP, and etc.....go buy this TV.
This Hitachi TV in full 1080 is AWESOME with HD Cable TV. I swapped my cable box for a HD Model with HDMI output and DVI Recording, it is SWEET! Simple to use, and I have a pretty good 5.1 Surrond system, and the TV has 5.1 digital output that makes it simple. This TV has so many settings, memory options for DAY/Night Settings also. It also has 2 tuners built in for PIP, and a nice way to view up to 5 images on the screen. It also has a remote swivel that is nice for when company arrives to watch Real HDTV, not the 720 dpi that most people buy and do not consider. I only wish the cable company had cable cards instead of the box.
I rate this HDTV very high on the list and absolutely no problems after a year of ownership.
