Hitachi 51s715..A good Set?

02-12-2005, 06:48 PM
I am going to buy a TV tomorrow. I have it narrowed down to the 51s715 and the 57s510. I am leaning towards the 715. Can anyone tell me any pros and cons on the two sets? I can get them both for the same price --1800.00 510 from CC ans 1800.00 715 from Sears. Thanks in advance.

Have you bought your new TV yet? I would reccomend the 51s715, it is a better TV. Obviously, the 57in is bigger, though, so how far away do you sit?

There are big differances between the two. The 51S715 has an HD tuner built in, cable card ready, much nicer remote control, better 5-element lens system makes for a clearer picture, and a kickin 40W sound system (510 has 24W and doesn't sound as good)

Again, if you are sitting far away from TV, consider buying the bigger one. Or better yet, find the 57S715.
