3 Reasons For

Supports Three Audio Formats

The 24HBC05 has a greater number of audio formats than most comparable spec televisions that have been around for the last year. This television supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most frequently supported audio format supported by similar spec televisions that were launched around the same time as the 24HBC05. The audio formats "WAV" and "WMA" are also supported by this Hitachi television.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

The average thickness of similar spec televisions that have been around for around the same time as the 24HBC05 is 53mm, and the thicknesses range from 31mm to 88mm. At only 31 millimeters, the 24HBC05 has a very thin thickness compared to most of the other recently released televisions.

If you would consider a TV with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the Philips 24HFL3010 (£205.08) (40mm), or the Hitachi 22HBC06 (35mm).

Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption

With an annual energy consumption of only 27 kilowatt hours, the Hitachi 24HBC05 has a fairly low annual energy consumption compared to most of the other comparable spec televisions that are a similar age to the 24HBC05. Across all the latest TVs the annual energy consumptions range from 20kWh to 55kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 34kWh.

6 Reasons Against

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other small screen size televisions that have been on the market for the last year, the 24HBC05 is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Like most of the other similar spec TVs that came out in the last 12 months, the 24HBC05 does not support smart TV features.

We compared all the other televisions which also support smart TV features to this TV and we think the HG24EE460 (£179.38), the HG28EE470 (£199.67), or the HG24EE690 (£254.14) all from Samsung is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The 24HBC05 does not have a WiFi connection, although keep in mind that most of the other televisions that have been available for the last year also do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a WiFi connection to this TV and we think the HG24EE690 (£254.14), or the HG28EE690 (£289.63) both from Samsung or the Panasonic TX-24DS500 (£175.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 24HBC05 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other small screen size televisions that are a similar age to the 24HBC05 also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other recently released small screen size televisions, the 24HBC05 does not feature OLED technology.

Chart Edit
