Hitachi 28In HD Ready FVHD LED TV/DVD Combi with Smart Apps. 4.2 5 31 33
only good with HD channels This TV displays a good image only with HD channels and/or from dvd source. With all other channels the image is sometimes distorted. The audio also is not so good. Would not recommend. 06 May 2014
tv/dvd I was looking for a tv/dvd combi 28" at a good price..and the Hitachi fit the bill as it was on offer. It's for the second bedroom so ideal. Haven't tried the wifi as need to connect the dongle I purchased separately. The picture is very good, the sound isn't that great, but overall very happy. DVD quality is fantastic. 31 March 2014
Good for the price This TV came with a cut price dongle which is needed to access the internet. The initial set up of the TV was easy but not quite as easy to access the internet. Sometimes it takes a long time get onto the iplayer but that could be the iplayer itself or perhaps the broadband connection. Overall a good product 25 March 2014
value for money Easy to set up, sharp clear picture solid base and looks smart nice finish. Good value for the price. 20 January 2014
Nice set but irksome shortcomings For the price, you get lots of decent features including DVD and access to various online apps. However, there are some annoyances. Firstly YouTube causes the entire box to freeze. Secondly, there appears to be no way of switching off the set other than at the mains. So the power light glows brightly all night. Thirdly, the headphone socket is positioned awkwardly behind the screen. Finally, the font on some of the menus is very small so some people might find these unreadable. Overall happy. 14 January 2014
A++ Very nice picture and very easy to use. Very handy having the built-in DVD drive and USB connection to access external media. 10 January 2014
Does exactly what it says - except the wireless Bought this TV for my 89 year old mum to give her a better picture than her old TV and so she can use iPlayer in her living room instead of on her PC in a cramped study. V easy to set up, no probs at all with the TV side. The only issue, just like other people have said, was not being able to buy a compatible dongle for the wireless connection. We moved the router, connected the TV directly and used the dongle on the PC instead - works fine, but beware if that's not an option for you. 09 January 2014
Got There in the End I was tipped over in buying by the fact it's a Smart TV and I should be able to transmit stuff wirelessly. I had problems with set up and made many calls to the support of both Argos, & ISP. A solution was found in the end when Plusnet changed my router password & reset all they could. Thankfully I can now achieve all that I want to & I'm delighted by the quality of the with the set. Thanks to both Argos & ISP for their patience and willingness to sort my difficulties out. 09 January 2014
Pretty good tv As mentioned in other reviews,a bit of a pain that the wireless adapter doesn't come with the tv but mine was hard wired anyway.Picture not as crisp as i'd hoped and the pre installed apps are basic but functional.All in all good value tv! 09 January 2014
Hitachi 28inch bought for bedroom great so far very happy with it 09 January 2014
Could have been made by ronseal! Bought this for daughters bedroom, with limitations to size, this seemed to offer what we were looking for. Has not disappointed at all. Fairly easy to get it all set up, obviously using teenagers' help where required. Daughter has used "normal" TV, smart tv, DVD etc and all work well. Features seem to be perfect for teenagers bedroom television. May well be having to upgrade the other kids bedroom televisions now to match. Very pleased. 08 January 2014
Ideal bedroom tv Lots of tv for the money. Slim even with DVD player so fits nicely on wall bracket. Picture and sound good although HD freeview channels not as good as my big tv downstairs. I don't use smart features so can't comment on this. 08 January 2014
Good value, but no dongle available Excellent Television set. I wanted to free space and remove wires from my previous television. This fitted the bill perfectly, with it's built in DVD player and Freeview HD. At 28' the size is perfect for my room. The only disappointment is the lack of availability of the recommended wireless dongle for the set to enable the smart functions, no in store or online availability from Argos. It is still out of stock over a week later and clearly not available elsewhere. 30 October 2013
Good item Ok item easy to set up only down size in volume of it isn't to great as in going louder when you turn it up and sometimes the screen isn't a grey picture when playing a DVD apart from that it's great little tv 29 October 2013
good value very pleased with this, really easy to set up and does what it does, no problems. Great value. 29 October 2013
Hitachi 28 lcd tv dvd combi Was not impressed at all. Should be Smart tv but not very user friendly at all. Needed whole load of different accessories to be able to get contacted with internet. Which is not explained. Absolutely waste of time. Will not recommend. 29 October 2013
great tv evwrything about this tv is brilliant 23 October 2013
well worth it purchased for our 6n hf yr old in his room,easy installation , easy to use dvd , internet access can be faffy to say the least was a bit fiddly to do wireless side . but none the less still overall really pleased with it and if all goes well over next 6months will be buying another to replace our Toshiba in our bedroom. 22 October 2013
Terrible Don't buy this television the internet capabilities are terrible, you can't access the portal to get new apps or even search on the internet. 22 October 2013
Excellent TV Great picture, good sound although not the best I have heard, handy having the dvd player built in too. 15 October 2013

You will be able to use this TV in Spain, however some features may not work. For example the freeview tuner will only pick up channels whilst in the U.K and some apps will only allow you to use them if you are in the U.K or have a U.K ip address.
