smart tv Lovely. Picture easy setting and worth the money 11 February 2014
hitachi 42inch smart tv excellent tv good value for money 11 February 2014
Great deal! Ok, the sound is a bit tinny, the connection via smart usb key a bit dodgy. But for that money it is a real deal! 11 February 2014
Not a smart tv!! Brought this TV because it was advertised on tv and in the Argos sale book for a good price. This tv is NOT a smart tv, there are just a few apps on it and you cannot had anymore apps to it. Picture is good quality but if you want a smart tv don't buy this one. 11 February 2014
Hitachi Smart 42" TV This is 42" but with such a small frame takes up little more room than the old 32". Its matt steel grey frame is much more pleasing than the previous shiny black one and blends in easily. Noyt used all the features yet but there are loads to learn. The only problem at present is the freeview connection to ITV but that is likely our area and arial position. 11 February 2014
Hitachi 42 inch television The picture on this telly is brilliant, but the sound quality is terrible, we had to buy the sound bar to go with it, once this was linked up it was brilliant, highly recommend it. 11 February 2014
good value for money Good all round TV at the price limited apps and sometimes the sound on HD is not at the same speed as the mouths a bit annoying very disappointed with smart vue tv 11 February 2014
Good at the price Wanted a larger screen than our 32" with Full HD, Freeview HD and this fitted the bill at a great price. The Smart Apps are OK but nothing special. I didn't buy it for the Apps anyway. Clear and crisp picture especially when watching HD input from Tivo box, Xbox360 or BluRay. The sound quality is about the same as rivals. Thin TV's are never going to sound great. I use an A/V amp anyway so not a problem for me. Do not buy the Hitachi 30W Soundbar if you buy a TV, not worth the extra. 11 February 2014
CHEAP AND NOT CHEERFUL THE PICTURE WAS OK IN HD BUT STANDARD IT BLURRED AND WAS POOR, MY OLD PLASMA 7 YEARS OLD WAS FAR BETTER, THE SOUND WAS TERRIBLE . IN GENERAL IT SEEMED CHEAP QUALITY RETURNED IT WITHIN 2 HOURS OF BUYING IT THE ARGOS STAFF WERE EXCELLENT AND VERY HELPFUL CANNOT FAULT THE STAFF 11 February 2014

Easy set up and fab picture.Bought for daughters bedroom and she loves it.Great sale price. 09 February 2014
sensible reasonably priced product advertised on t.v. very pleased with no criticisms. easy connectivity and programming including sky box and dvd player. 06 February 2014
Hitachi 42 inch full HD television This tv was bought to replace a smaller LED set. Although the set took a little time to connect up, the end result is a fantastic lifelike picture. This combined with the low price from Argos, makes this an absolute bargain 05 February 2014
great value tv excellent tv well worth the money ,picture, sound, ease of use and very stylish tv for the money highly reccomended to anyone considering the purchase 04 February 2014
Great TV for it's value This is a great TV for the money you pay for. It has almost everything you need. It is not as "smart" as other TV's in the market, but let's not forget the price you pay for a 42 inch LED Full HD... Menus could have been better but maybe SmartView will have an update at some point (don't hold your breath to it of course). If you have an HD Sky box, or xbox then this is just brilliant to complement it. 04 February 2014
Donegal needed Wasn't to botherd about a smart tv just wanted a bigger one . And this one at this price couldn't say no . To me it's a perfect tv one draw bak. Though if you don't know much about tv s. And wi fi and stuff. . You need to purchase a donegal to use the smart bit .. I thought it would work of my sky wifi broadband. Lol apparently you need a tv with built in wifi. Would recommend for the price though 29 January 2014

Had the tv about a month and suddenly having the internet connected causes the tv to reset every 46 seconds precisely. The busy icon appears in the top left corner like it is accessing the internet so the other tv functions are locked and then it turns itself off and on. Have tried to reset to factory settings in case it has unsuccessfully downloaded an app or update but no joy. Anyone else seen or cured this?
