8 Reasons For

Supports Smart TV Features

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Refresh Rate

At 100 hertz, the 40HBT42A has a quite fast refresh rate compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the 40HBT42A. The average refresh rate of mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the 40HBT42A is 120Hz, and the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 900Hz.

If you would prefer a faster refresh rate then you might also want to look at the Samsung UE40F6100 (£574.50) (200Hz).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The Hitachi 40HBT42A does not have a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other recently released mid-size TVs.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The 40HBT42A is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other mid-size TVs that were released in the last 12 months are also not 3D compatible.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 40HBT42A does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the 40HBT42A also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Most mid-size TVs that came out in the last 12 months do not feature OLED technology. The Hitachi 40HBT42A is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the Samsung HG49EE690 (£576.42) is also worth considering.
