great looking tv nice looking tv great price for a smart tv,not got the picture set quite right yet .but iam shaw i will soon.. 21 July 2014
great tv for the price Great tv, easy to set up, some reviews I read complained about the sound but I think its fine. Smart tv is easy to use, I'm not sure if you can add extra apps such as 4od or itv player, my son loves youtube on there. 19 July 2014
Great value TV This TV is great in all respects apart from the weak sound and poor quality speakers. Dead easy to set up just connected my Tivo and a set top aerial and away it went found all of the available freeview channels in a couple of minutes.(including HD). Lots of different settings available to get the best picture for your own preference.. After I connected to my router ( by cable) I was able to get the pre loaded apps and also access to the internet. Overall a great buy which I would recommend. 16 July 2014

Soundbars

In other questions regarding soundbars you state that they have to be plugged in via the headphone jack. Surely this unit has an coaxial output which could accommodate a soundbar with coaxial input?

There is no built-in wifi. You have to buy the dongle if you want wireless access, else use the built-in wired connection.

Answer: 
wifi dongles ? Probably not - when using wifi dongles on linux, for example, you typically have to download specific firmware to match the dongle. The TV is unikely to do that, nor come preloaded with drivers, since they already say only their own one is supported.

Answer: 
I do seem to have a web browser on my version. The image on the argos site shows 12 smart apps, whereas I seem to have 17.

Bit tedious trying to drive the web browser with the remote, but I tried plugging in usb mouse and keyboard, and they seemed to work okay. (I use wired connection - wifi dongle would presumably use up one usb slot, and i'm not sure if you can use a usb hub to plug both mouse and keyboard into the other.)

Answer: 
There is a short adapter cable supplied with the TV. It has a yellow jack plug at one end, and yellow / red / white inline sockets at the other. This then plugs into the AV connector at the side of the TV. (I think it's composite video, not component video - red and white are audio.) This works for me.

Alternatively, Wii comes with an adapter that plugs into scart socket and allows the three connectors to plug into that. I haven't tried that approach myself.

Hi,

The Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD 1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps does not have a component input, you would have to use an adaptor and connect the Wii to the TV via SCART.
