    What are the differences between the Hitachi 51S715 and the 51F510? I don't need bells and whistles. Is one less expensive than the other?

    The 510 is $300 less than the 715. The 715 adds:

    Ultravision exterior cosmetic (way better IMO)
    HDTV tuner
    USB input
    Roll/Click Remote (much better, if you're going to use it)
    Better color decoder
    5 element lens system instead of 4 (seems a bit sharper in the corners)

    Both sets are excellent televisions and good values IMO. You'd be happy with either I think. The integrated tuner is the "can't live without" feature and the major reason for the price difference if it applies to you.
