good value have had this tv for a couple of weeks now haven't got onto internet with it yet not easy to follow instructions hopefully my son is going to help with this, remote mute button plays up could do with a new remote will have to look who to call for this must be a number somewhere, otherwise nice picture.. 27 January 2015
Good value for money It is a cheap HD TV but with alot of and all basic features. It is as smart as it can go. It has DLNA for mobile or laptop mirroring. Do not compare its graphics with Samsung - they are in a different league. But it is good enough. I think it is a low budget tv with good value for money and up to date technological features (except built in wifi). 23 January 2015
can't download ITV player TV fine but can't download ITV player -very disappointed! 15 January 2015
Not a smart TV, but a wonderful experience! The viewing angles on this LCD are excellent. Wherever I am in the room, the image is consistent, about on par with plasma! The brightness and colour are astounding. For the price I expected washed-out tones and dim images, but was delighted when I turned on the set to see the room somewhat filled with light. The thin bezels make it look modern and sleek, and the PC connectivity renders each pixel sharply and definitely. Movies look AMAZING. For the price you cannot go wrong! Thankyou, Argos! 14 January 2015
sound is diabolical , its like a loud speaker in a dustbin, had to buuy a seperate sound bar. 09 January 2015

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).

Answer: 
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.
