smart tv really good value tv.Easy to set up 15 October 2014
Good telly Needed a bigger telly (Rugby World Cup's coming up!) with a Freeview HD tuner. Good telly at a keen price and easy to reserve and pickup from a local store But I haven't found how to switch it off yet...... 30 September 2014
Hittachi hxt12u great price and service from Argos easy connectivity and set up smart apps really good i player particularly good 30 September 2014
Hitachi This TV is pretty good, although some of the functionality leaves a bit to be desired. You cant watch a program and scroll through whats on next, without completely closing the screen, and not all features are available on internet settings. Sound is okay quality but tends to vibrate at higher levels. Great picture though and pretty fast response rate. 29 September 2014
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

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

Does it have PAP (picture and Picture)?

6 months ago
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.

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.
