42 inch TV Purchased this tv as 42 inch when you take out box looks much smaller. 24 July 2014
short life tv When I bought this hitachi tv I was so happy that I got a bargain but after one month picture gone so I took back to Argos. They said screen damage from insid so its accidental damage & I have to pay for repair. I'm not happy with poor quality product because outside screen got few unnoticeable minor scratches but inside screen got damage some how. I didn't bother to repair & I would prefer to buy some other brand. 24 July 2014

The description of this TV is a bit confusing. It says with Smart Apps but no listing as to what Smart Apps its has an can you get different more tried to Google more information but only got pointed back here with not enough information. Do you not think that that a product excluded from your 30 day money back grantee needs as much information like this as possible?
