The LE42S704 is a 42" flat screen LED TV released in the summer of 2010 along with a 46" version labeled LE46S704. These are part of Hitachi's UltraVision Series and belong to their UltraThin line of TV's, all of which have a built-in NTSC/ATSC/QAM tuner for getting a range of channels both analog and digital. This line uses LED technology which is more efficient and environmentally friendly than CCFL backlighting, as well as lasting longer and being mercury free.
