    This Hitachi looks like the one from BIGW EKO

    • -2 votes

      I would definitely choose Hitachi over EKO anyday.

      Hitachi has been making TVs since 1961 whilst EKO was made in 2016 by some Israeli rock musician Yoni Bloch LOL

        Is this really a quality Hitachi product though or just a cheap TV rebadged with the Hitachi branding. Certainly looks like a convincing copy of the EKO tvs from Big W.

          Different company. We’re sold off years ago

        This is not that Hitachi anymore, just like car MG

        This is not the Hitachi from 1961.

        It’s the Hitachi from 2012, now owned by Vestel, a Turkish company.

        So, actually you might be better off getting the EKO.

          Hitachi brand for TV in Australia is licensed by Tempo, which also supplies TV under other brands using rebadged generic units.

          •  

            @systema: Including Eko, Akai, Polaroid (yes they make TVs now) and basically every cheap brand.

            Hit or miss whether it’s a good panel in it or not

        Lol, Hitachi of old is gone, just like MG and Akai. These brand names are now just plonked on any old Chinese product.

        From memory this is identical to Eko. Don't be fooled by Hitachi name.

          Old Hitachi wasn’t making good stuff towards the end. When we bought our first Hitachi plasma in 2008, they were still made in Japan but the boards inside the tv were cheap. Tv lasted just under 5 years before the boards blew and no one could get parts to fix it.

    Hisense is way better and cheaper with 3 yr warranty

    • +1 vote

      This one comes with 3 yrs warranty too but Hisense is also a good choice for cheap TVs with good build quality.

    Also buy Android TV rather smart TV with higher frequency of refreshing

    • -1 vote

      That doesn't make sense. Operating system doesn't dictate refresh rate.

      •  

        They said to prefer the OS over other factors like refresh rate (which is generally 50Hz no matter what the software specs say).

    It's also an Android TV if you open up the link

    It's the exact same model as the big w eko frameless TV

      Is Blaupunkt QLED? Doesn't say.

      Anyone know what the warranty is for Hitachi and Blaupunkt?

      • +1 vote

        Seems I was wrong. This Hitachi TV is supplied by tempo

        The QLED EKO frameless one from Big W is supplied by Ayonz Pty Ltd similar to the Blaupunkt I posted above but the Blaupunkt one has 1000 more contrast and 50W less power consumption. Blaupunkt one looks to be different and might not have QLED. Although now I see that reduced power consumption is a byproduct of qled so I’m more confused now.

        From comparing the specifications provided in the manuals it looks like the Hitachi one is the same as EKO frameless but not Blaupunkt.

        @Fairmont, Hitachi has 3 year warranty, confirmed purchased. JB advised to get it over the Blaupunkt 70" $895, https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/blaupunkt-bp700usg9200-70... due to slightly higher refresh rate, better remote(?), QLED panel and the 3 year warranty.

    Yes the name Hitachi was sold to a chinese company. The real Hitachi company went out of business years ago

    If anybody is interested on who makes hitachi these days…

    Hitachi make a really good wand, combine it with your missus, this TV and a live stream and it could turn out to be a magical night.

      Bonus points for loading up the Spotify app on the TV and playing Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys.

    Just a question: doesn’t Kogan TV use same or similar panels and it’s under $1000. Or am I comparing apples to oranges here

    •  

      Yeah but Kogan are the worst for software updates etc. The worst.

      •  

        And after sales support.

    @Mod, this TV has returned to original pre-sale price $1495, deal has ended.
