Customer reviews and ratings

Hitachi HDR5T01 500GB Freeview+ HD Smart Digital TV Recorder 4 5 128 131
this product didnr work Bought this HDR5T01, as soon as we used it lines appeared across the screen and the sound was poor, we returned it and exchanged it for the same model, this one still had the lines across the screen, and recorded programms had no sound at all, very bad for a firm like Hitachi to produce such a bad product.Going now to exchange it for a different make. 14 April 2015
Doesn't record properly Forgets series record! Only records 3 mins on standard recording. Took it back for a replacement and that did the same, swapped for a Bush equivalent (£40 cheaper - it is identical to the Hitachi) and it does exactly the same. Useless items. Bought a Panasonic from Richer Sounds instead - works perfectly. 01 April 2015
product did not work correctly the product did not work, scan found no channels, even though the same aerial lead connected to telly found 129 channels... returned product, assumed faulty, got another, same problem. finally got another brand, worked fine. I see that Argos does not carry product anymore... any wonder!! 31 March 2015

Re Hitachi HDR5T01

Hi.
Is it possible to use the built-in smart TV facility using a dongle in the usb port rather than the ethernet connection?

Answer: 
Hello, Thank you for your question. Hitachi do make a Wi-Fi dongle but it is for their TVs only. You will need to connect the Hitachi HDR5T01 via Ethernet cable. If you are unable to do this you can use power line adapters (recommended: T-P-LINK Powerline 109/0930) to connect to your router. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
