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
brilliant buy. this tv has everything i wanted from a H.D tv, and it was excellent value. 02 September 2014

Hi Uzzy,
This product has HDMI, SCART and YPbPr video connections which should cover most console connections.

Does the TV come with a dongle or do you need to purchase one for access to the apps?

yes, that's happening me too. To fix it you need to complete power off from plug. Did you ever make BBC I-player working before?

Answer: 
Essentially, do not buy this TV for its apps. It doesn't have any apps. All the "apps" on it are online. Starting today I can't get to them anymore. Yesterday I got the Turkish version of the apps (rings familiar - there's probably a review stating they've seen Turkish apps), but a power cycle fixed it. If your Internet happens to die as your TV is starting up, it won't even respond to the remote (happened today, twice). Just don't buy it for the "smarts" - it doesn't have any.
