£499.95 Hitachi UT42MX70 42" Ultra Thin LCD Screen 1080p HD Ready With At Home Warranty

The Hitachi UT42MX70 is one of the the thinnest 42" screen ever sold! Okay, at just 35mm it's so thin that Hitachi couldn't even fit a TV tuner in but, provided you have a SkyHD, VirginHD, freesat box or DVD recorder with HDMI this is no problem at all.

Furthermore, if the screen is being used as part of a home cinema system then a monitor represents excellent value as you're not paying for a part of the TV you don't need.

Coming complete with an HDMi input it's easy to connect the UT42MX70 straight up to an AV receiver or media source of your choice.

Boasting Hitachi's IPS Alpha panel with PICTURE MASTER FHD Engine, the UT42MX70 offers full 1080p resolution and 100Hz technology.

With this technology you'll enjoy 1080p HD quality images from the IPS screen that are every bit as good as normal, "full fat" 1080p LCD screens.

In addition to the HDMI there's also a VGA socket that is perfect for a PC or, with an adaptor, any analogue source you care to add. In addition to being a third of the thickness of a conventional LCD TV, the Hitachi UT42MX70 is lighter.

In fact, this screen is so much lighter than other 42" TVs that it can make the most of a wider range of wall brackets, including swivel-type brackets with a lower weight bearing.

To keep the appearance neat and tidy, Hitachi has designed special cable channels. The beautiful finish has also been designed to look sleek from any angle - perfect if the TV is stand mounted in the centre of a room.
