Hitachi 40 Inch Full HD Freeview HD LED TV with Smart Apps. 4.2 5 179 182
Hitachi 40" Full HD 1080p Really great product. My wife did not want an all black hole in the lounge, so the grey surround looked good. Picture and sound are good, with no need for speakers. Much better than expected. 14 January 2014
Very pleased with this product. 14 January 2014
Everything you need in a modern TV Very quick delivery at 2 days better than instore pick up which was 3 days. I was suprised how slim this product was, even thinner than my last slimline TV. Good picture and brilliant sound made me realise how rubbish my old TV was A brilliant buy has all the features I need some I havent used yet. 14 January 2014
hitachi 40" smart tv. works ok easy to install but cannot get it to sync with sky remote as it is not in the SKY set up list so will have to stick with two remotes,picture & sound quality are fine,all in all well worth the money.well done" ARGOS"a bargin a the price,delivered on the day I asked for I am well pleased with set up list not upto date as yet. 14 January 2014
great smart TV a little lacking in sound quality Purchased this a week ago and from a picture quality point of view is spot on although due to the slim design the sound is forfeited and is tinny with little bass. (Although link to a soundbar and all is forgotten) Pros - great picture quality SMART function is great ( link via Ethernet cable,- also see cons) Slim design Great price Cons Poor sound No optical input for soundbar Cannot programme sky remote as no one knows the code Good tv if your prepared to compromise 14 January 2014
Great TV Great TV,easy to set up 14 January 2014
Great value Great picture quality and good features for the money. The only thing that let's it down is the rather poor sound quality. Easily sorted with some external speakers. 14 January 2014
Value for money For the money, this TV is great. It doesn't have all of the functionality of higher end smart TV's, but it has enough. Picture is excellent, sound much better than my old TV, looks good. Only downside is that the base is not as shown in the picture - confusing at first and a shame as I liked the base and it was one of the reasons I went for this TV. 14 January 2014
Does what it says in the book. Easy to set up - nothing complicated. Ceefax on BBC seems faster than on previous TV sets. Delivered as promised. Have not tried linking a pc to the TV yet, but will in the future. Very pleased with the results. 14 January 2014

Great value! Had this TV for a couple of weeks now and love it. Sharp,clear picture, good sound quality, automatic setup. I also bought the half price TV wifi dongle to connect the tv to the internet from Argos and that's pretty easy to set up too. Very pleased with this purchase. 14 January 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
