Hitachi 40 Inch Full HD Freeview HD LED TV with Smart Apps. 4.2 5 179 182
excellent value a super value tv, with very easy set up instructions and a brilliant delivery service, what more could you want. 06 May 2014
this product is basic you can not upload any apps no search engine also bbci player changed to news 24 it is just a good 40" free view TV for price 06 May 2014
For the price this is excellent value Bought this as a tv for a bedroom - delighted with the product for the price. Incredibly easy to install - plug in and ready. Looks great mounted on the wall 06 May 2014
very good for the price the only downfall with this tv is there is only one scart and the smart apps are limited I wanted it for Netflix I bought a wifi dongle for it specialy but a good tv for the price. 06 May 2014
Don't be cheep The price is okay, but if pay more 50£ you will get the features that are not available such as . build in wifi better responsive tv ( this tv lag too much) the control system is extremely slow. real smart tv. this one is half smart. 06 May 2014
Fantastic TV Excellent TV, providing fantastic picture quality, especially on HD channels. Sound is very nice, you can customise the equaliser to your preference. The Smart aspect is a bit lacking, as the only main 'apps' are iPlayer and ITV, as others have not been made for it. Unfortunately have not had a chance to test the wireless as internet has been to slow for connection, but over Ethernet works fine. 06 May 2014
Great tv This is a great tv it has good picture quality and sound and was very easy to set up. Had to buy dongle to be able to connect to internet. I think you get a lot for the price. I would recommend this tv. 29 April 2014
TV Very happy with the product and the service from on line purchase 29 April 2014
good set for what we need only problem we have is setting up each morning so we may have to call in local dealer if it continues 29 April 2014
Poor picture quality Looks better than it is, the quality of the image is really poor. The contrast is not great and neither is the brightness. 29 April 2014
very good buy It does what it's supposed to, good quality picture. Very slick design, nice and light. purchased it for a very good price. 29 April 2014
Great tv, better price :) When my old tv decided enough was enough I was expecting to pay dearly for a new one. This Hitachi is not only a better tv but also at a fantastic price, hope it lasts a long time, happy!! 29 April 2014
simply the best This TV is very good for the price range. sound quality and picture is good. Would recommend this product. 29 April 2014
Great Good quality sound and picture. Looks better than I thought 23 April 2014
99/100 I recently bought this tv and what an upgrade! Very pleased with it I was very doubtful at first thinking cheap price means cheap made but I was pleasantly surprised only thing that isn't top notch is the sound and Even that's not terrible I just switched the settings around and it's perfect so happy with such a cheap tv and such good quality I would surely recommend 22 April 2014
An ok product .....I liked the tv for price alone at first. However, upon scrutiny and physical practice the tv has few good points- Hd freeview, Fhd, ....some connections are not placed well for flush wall mounting. Frame not tight with gaps. Black screen has many white cloudy areas, tv freezes or loses sound indescriminately. 22 April 2014
perfect tv to purchase It's a brilliant product and very user friendly. Excellent pictures and sound which comes with great design. 15 April 2014
Nice sleek smart TV Nice sleek smart TV, easy to install smart wifi dongle, excellent picture quality. 11 April 2014
Great tv but after one day had dead pixels not so good 08 April 2014
Really smart looking TV Excellent tv, looks really good, nice and slim, small amount of frame. Picture is crystal clear, quick response when switching channels, internet etc 08 April 2014

This TV is not currently approved by Saorview which means it may not receive their channels.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

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

Hi poppygirl, the dongle is only as strong as your internet Wi-Fi,if your main Wi-Fi is in a different location this could be causing a weak signal,i have the same tv and dongle and my pc is in the same room and its fine,and thats off a mobile internet dongle on my pc.
