Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps. 4.4 5 382 395
great for the price Bought this tv in the sale as my original tv was irreparable, sound is good as is the picture, my main issue is connecting to the internet or streaming film/pictures through the WiFi dongle(sold Separately) it often disconnects and on times the tv is not findable when searching for it through your phone/tablet. The hdmi and other outlets to rear of tv are quite snug against my wall when connected didn't have this with my last tv(Bush) as the connectors were deeper into the casing. 21 September 2014
Loving it! Very impressed with this. Extremely easy set-up of the FreeviewHD and the Wi-fi! Sound quality is great, picture is excellent and it looks lovely even switched off. Already told lots of my friends and family about it. 16 September 2014
Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014
Looks great, great visuals too. 04 September 2014

Sharing media

4 months, 2 weeks ago
Hi, I am yet to buy the wireless dongle.

I would like to know if I can connect a USB drive to this TV and then share the drive on the network to view/add/delete the content from a laptop on the same network?

If this is not possible, can you browse network shares from the TV?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question.

The Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD 1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps has not been tested outside of the UK. There should not be a problem when using this device abroad as long as you have the correct adapter/conversion plug.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Answer: 
No mention in the manual about it, but I plugged in an 8Gb USB stick this evening, and now looking at it on my pc, it seems to have created a DVR directory (with other structure underneath). So maybe it now can record, or they are planning something in the near future.

FYI, make sure the exernal HDD has it's own power source, this TV cannot supply sufficient power through the USB source on it's own. I also believe the max capacity it can use is 1TB.
