Stylish and great value for money 19 August 2014
Value for money Brilliant value, great TV. 19 August 2014
Great TV for the price Easy to set up, great tv for the price. have not purchased the wifi dongle yet to try that out. 19 August 2014
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

Answer: 
It has a USB port. Can be used to play media from a USB stick or to attach a WIFI dongle. You can also use the smart tv functions without a dongle by attaching it to your router with a cable (not included).

Hi Dave,
The TV has 2 USB ports. If you want to connect the TV to a wireless network to access the smarTVue portal you will need to the dongle that is associated with the product (cat reference 108/2216). Alternatively you can connect the TV to a router by the LAN connection on the back of the product.

Answer: 
Yes the TV will function as a normal TV without connection to the internet - connection to internet is only required to use smart apps. You can use a Blu-Ray with it - that is your choice.
