Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps. 4.4 5 349 362
Good TV and not expensive! Had it two weeks and so far so good,its stylish,Its picture is excellent,sound is good,It set itself up with a little help from me.Haven't gone into the smart bits yet,we have sky TV and don't really need it.I was so impress by price and quality I was going to buy another for another room to replace my 32inch Sony smart HD TV,The picture on this Hitachi 42 inch leaves it in the shade. 14 August 2014
Nearly 5 stars It is easy to set up and has a very good, clear picture. The border/frame is small and makes the TV look very modern. I have not connected to the internet yet as the ethernet cable is to short and I don't have a compatible wireless USB dongle yet. I would have awarded 5 stars if the TV came with the wireless dongle and another scart connector 13 August 2014
Great value with excellent features Bought this for my niece. She has no TV aerial so it's connected via HDMI to a virgin Tivo box. Installation was easy and we connected the smarthub to the router with a network cable. The picture is excellent and the smarthub works very effectively. Have seen reviews about poor sound quality. Don't know why people complain. The sound is fine and the set will go very loud if you want. Overall, tremendous value for money with an excellent picture and some great features. Would get another. 13 August 2014
overall great buy read so many reviews for other tv about picture and bad sound, but this tv is excellent, the sound is good ,can have surround sound at touch of button, the picture is great, also internet easy to set up- need a Hitachi dongle, highly recommended buy. 13 August 2014
Great buy excellent price, am now thinking of getting another for my bedroom. 13 August 2014

HiSimmo808,
This model is perfect for putting on a wall, the bolts used to mount the product to a wall bracket are normally supplied with the wall bracket.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
Before mounting make sure that you mount it on a brick wall or on the stud of a drywall
use one of these method;

>use the fixing kit (107/5869)
>use 8mm wallplug/4inch screws
it depends on the size of the tv and pre drilled holes on the bracket

One of the saving factors in my relationship with my partner is the fact that our tv has PAP (picture and picture). This means she can watch tv on one side of the screen while I play my PS3 on the other side. Our tv is now dying though and we need a tv with this feature.

Hello Dave,

Thank you for your question, I have looked into this for you and i would recommend purchasing a SCART block or a SCART selector this will enable you to have both your DVD recorder and Video Recorder plugged into your television

I hope this helps

How are external speakers meant to connect to the audio output? When we plug in the extra audio cable (which divides into the yellow/red/white ends) the speaker cables fit in to these yellow/red/white ends but they don't go in very far and are very loose so is there another adaptor/cable we need?
Please see the photo.
Thanks!

Answer: 
You cannot connect 3mm mini jacks (left in pic) to phono (right in pic) leads, if you use the 3mm mini jacks (left of pic) you need a lead with 3mm female jacks or if you use the phono lead (right of pic) you need male phono lead....

The leads you have in the pic are NOT compatible.....!!!
Phono to phono or Jack to Jack - NOT Jack to phono, they are totally different leads altogether.

Hope this helps.
