Smart Good quality, good price 09 January 2014
Very satisfied Good item, exactly what I wanted and at a great price. No more having muliple cables and DVD players cluttering up the floor and I can watch Utube online. 09 January 2014
hitachi 40 inch smart tv I love my new tv . Just right for what I wanted .the only reason I gave it a 4 was because the special offer wifi dongle wasn't available and alternative wasn't offered . Which was annoying beacause that the only thing that make it a smart tv after all. 09 January 2014
Incompatible with everything We purchased the TV as a bundle with a wifi dongle and soundbar both by Samsung and neither work with the Hitachi!!! There is no audio out for the soundbar, only one scart which didn't work with the soundbar either and the wifi dongle was incompatible either. The TV was on sale and exempt from being returned and now we know why. Should have listened to "Mummy" as if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! 09 January 2014
great Easy to set up good picture only prob is the tv updates itself every day and sand by light keeps flashing sometimes it doesn't stop n you have to switch tv on n off to stop it 09 January 2014
great TV for good value have only used to watched DVDs so far but seems great! the only thing I find with Hitachi is that you have to keep going into the sound menu each time to take it off stereo, as it sounds tinny with stero on, but I've yet to use the manual so hopefully there's a way to do this properly! 08 January 2014
Hitachi Smart TV Good quality Smart TV. 25 September 2013

I cannot get sound from Argos sound bar (TB340) when connected to the SPDIF digital coaxial socket. Is there something I need to do? I have selected PCM in the menu but the only sound is from the TV. Soundbar works fine with other connections.

Hi Kader,
This model has a VGA connection on the back of the product therefore you will be able to use it as a monitor for your computer. In order to switch from TV to the input from your computer use the source button on the remote and select the VGA input.
Best Regards
