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

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.

Answer: 
Hi Peeky,
To watch the Freeview HD channels (normal TV) you need an aerial input.

The wi-fi dongle is required if you want to connect the TV to your wireless network and access the smarTVue portal which contains the BBC iPlayer app as well as other social networking apps.
