Hitachi 40 tv The T.V works well and looks great in my Lounge. Good quality picture, easy to operate. Down side. Sound quality a bit tiny and the remote control is flimsy. 29 July 2014
Great value gif money I just wanted a low cost reasonable sized tv. This fitted the bill nicely but also has lots of features too. All at a great price. Great picture and sound. Thanks 29 July 2014
Not as smart as you think This isn't really a smart TV, it just has a small collection of apps to give an illusion of being smart. But as a standard TV at the price it is excellent, Picture quality is first rate and the sound is very good considering the tiny speakers. 25 July 2014
40" led tv very gd quality tv, only downside is sound 24 July 2014
television this product is very good and very well priced 24 July 2014

You get what you pay for I got this for my husband as we are getting rid of sky and wanted to be able to connect with our online subscriptions it doesn't connect well at all keeps crashing and the sound quality is shocking returned to Argos and a full refund given good service but I would advise to avoid this one 10 July 2014
excellent value for the money 14 May 2014
Fantasic well worth buying 13 May 2014
TV Got this tv to replace old type. Easy enough to set up. Picture quality good but volume not. A box appears on screen while you are watching something telling you. you haven't done anything for a while i.e change channel. Apparently this happens on all modern TV's. When there is writing on screen it doesn't fit. 07 May 2014
Only wanted a tv....... .....but got all the goodies that come with it (apps, freeview etc). Picture is as crisp as I have ever seen. Maybe add surround sound at a later date but don't need to dash out and buy it as sound quality from the unit itself is very good. !! 06 May 2014

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
