The 58HK6100U not only delivers good picture on a big screen but is also a Smart TV so watching YouTube or Netflix directly on this Hitachi TV is easy (and thanks to the built-in wireless connection of course).

Hitachi 58HK6100U is a 2020 model (or late 2019 at least) so we shouldn't expect it to be super cheap. The current price in UK varies around £400.

Hitachi is a well-known brand for producing high-quality TVs and their 4K models are no exception. Some of the best Hitachi 4K TVs currently available in the market include:
  • Hitachi 55HK6T74U: This 55-inch 4K Ultra HD TV features HDR technology, Smart TV capabilities, and a Freeview Play tuner for easy access to catch-up TV services. It also has a wide viewing angle and a high contrast ratio for an immersive viewing experience.
  • Hitachi 65HK6T74U: This 65-inch 4K Ultra HD TV also features HDR technology, Smart TV capabilities, and a Freeview Play tuner. It has a high contrast ratio and a wide viewing angle, as well as a built-in soundbar for improved audio quality.
  • Hitachi 50HK6T74U: This 50-inch 4K Ultra HD TV has the same features as the 55 and 65 inch models, HDR, Smart TV capabilities, and a Freeview Play tuner, with a smaller screen size for those who prefer it.
  • Hitachi 43HK6T74U: This 43-inch 4K Ultra HD TV also has HDR technology, Smart TV capabilities and a Freeview Play tuner. It has a high contrast ratio and a wide viewing angle, and it is considered an affordable option for those looking for a 4k TV.
