Hitachi H5 20 and 23 Inch

Hitachi on Monday released a duo of LCD TVs for the sometimes overlooked small-screen crowd. The 20- and 23-inch H5 series include Hitachi's more recent display technology and are meant to serve HDTV at a native 720p resolution in nooks where larger sets are impractical. Each packs an HD tuner with a built-in program guide for previewing schedules on upcoming over-the-air broadcasts. Viewers can also plug in terrestrial cable HD and receive similarly sharp content from HDMI or (in Japanese form) D4 inputs. Analog video is provided through co-ax, RCA, and S-video jacks. A total of five watts of speaker power supplies sound.

Either size display reaches Japan first on July 2nd at prices starting from an equivalent of $804. US releases of the LCDs are possible but will demand that Hitachi replace the D4 connection with component input for American devices. [via Akihabara]
