With native resolution of 3840 x 2160 the Hitachi 55HK25T74U promises to be one of the affordable big-screen 4k televisions on the UK market.

Sound in the 55HK25T74U is on a good level. With 2x 10W stereo speakers one can easily go without any external sound system. But of course as we often say, if you want proper TV and cinema experience at home, better invest in quality surround sound system.

Smart TV
Hitachi 55HK25T74U is a smart TV with built-in WiFi connection. It is not an Android television but Netflix and YouTube apps are on stand-by.

The current price varies around £400 (in UK). We believe it is affordable but still a bit higher than expected. If you are serious about buying the Hitachi 55HK25T74U  you better wait for the upcoming Black Friday week and see what price you can get.
