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: 
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.

Answer: 
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.
