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

I think you have to buy the recommended dongle. I tried a couple of third party ones I have and they didn't work. I am connected to my router by cable anyway.

Much easier is to use DLNA!

If your Laptop (or other device) supports DLNA, you can use this protocol with this TV. NOte, TV has to be connected to your local network (via Wifi or EthernetCable)

Answer: 
Hi Sandy,
You can connect your laptop to the TV by the HDMI connection or if your laptop doesn't have an HDMI output you can connect it to the TV by the VGA connection for the video output and the side AV connection for audio (this is covered in the IB).

Answer: 
Hi ellie-lou,
If your router for your sky broadband is close to where you want to put the TV you can connect the two products using a LAN (ethernet) cable. If you want to connect the TV to a wireless network you will need to purchase the dongle.

Hi Normski,
Recording programmes directly on the TV is not possible. In order to do this you will need an external recording box as you suspected.
