Cheers for the reply :) gonna get onto argos about it.
Hey, no problems here, everything has been perfect with no issues
Hey everyone, just thought I'd ask, we got a similar model recently and sometimes a white line goes accross the screen then disappears. Anyonelses have that happen?
It's a strange one, why go to the trouble of good packaging for 75% and not the middle.....anyways ramble over, nope I called them to get it collected by the courier but was told they don't offer replacements on the eBay store, only refunds. Also told it can take up to approximately 10/12 days to obtain a refund !! So the hunt continues.
That's annoying! I agree the packing was poor, 75% of the TV was sorrounded by inflatable packaging like alcohol bottles are shipped in.. The middle 25% of the screen had no protection but single piece of bubble wrap that wasn't secured, just laying there. Alot of movement in the box so I was half expecting mine to not work. Guessing they won't offer a replacement?

I have this tv has been solid, hooked up to Apple TV 4K for use in my gym. Decent quality and bang for buck. SD is as expected. Just developed a black line down the screen and I’m changing it as it’s been solid otherwise.
Yeah tried that,to be fair my mother in law has the same TV and hers is fine. Think I just got a dud TV
Any Argos "insiders" know if this telly is being reduced for the Christmas/New Year sales?
Have you checked that the HDMI settings are correct? Depending on the hardware connected, they need to be switched via the settings menu to either "Regular" (1.4 standard), or "Enhanced" (2.0 standard). I've had one for months, from when the £299 deal was on, and not had this issue.
Woah that's an almighty defensive response to someone expressing mild amazement that a 58" 4k was 299. I wasn't doubting you

Vestel is a Turkish home and professional appliances manufacturing company consisting of 18 companies specialised in electronics, major appliances and information technology. ... Most TVs produced by Vestel are sold under licensed brand names such as Toshiba, Hitachi, JVC and many own brand labels.
for anyone interested "Hitachi"-branded TVs are not actually made by the Japanese manufacturer Hitachi now, but rather the Turkish company Vestel hope this helps
Thanks for sharing @colm_mcerlain (y)
I think they had a firmware update. The screen also needs calibrating making some initial reviews unkowledgable. We also have Mini Led now, that being like an improved QLED
Not sure Colm as I've never tried it personally so worth checking. I'm basing suggestion mainly on this review: https://www.whathifi.com/reviews/hisense-r50b7120uk and the positive customer reviews. Seems like a good tv for the money

Hitachi 55 Inch 55HK25T74U Smart 4K LED TV - £339.99 @ Argos£339.99Argos Deals
I bought one two years ago too, the sound is awful. It’s very tinny particularly with higher pitch noises. I appreciate it’s not the same model (mine is a Vestel).
I went for 50" Philips Ambilight...I always wanted Ambilight tv (cheeky)
I've not got this model, but have got the 58" HK6100U from the same year/range. It's been an excellent performer for the price (£299). Check out here for more comments: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hitachi-58-inch-smart-4k-uhd-led-tv-with-hdr-29999-delivered-at-argos-3458985
You have a point. Out of curiosity, does anyone here own this particular model? And if so, did you experience the same problems that I did? After my experience. I'll never buy another product from Hitachi ever again.
What did u get in the end? In the same but need a tv with 3.5 jack as well

I aslo got tge Hitachi 58" on 299 deal.That Tv its a banger.I dont think youll find it on that price again
Being made by Vestel isn't nessecarily a bad thing. They offer decent TV's at cheap prices. Like all brands there can be both good and bad models (look at Samsung's TU7000 for an example of a bad TV by a big name). I can't comment on this particular model, as I haven't used it. There have been some excellent Vestel made TV's recently though. Have a look at the 58" Hitachi for £299 deal (now sadly ended) to see how good they can be - I bought one for a bedroom and it's been brilliant for the price. £249 is a pretty standard price for a budget 43" 4K set though. £229 and it's a deal.
Surprised this is 200 degrees 😳 Much better 43 inch TVs (Hisense 43B7500 and LG UM7400) were previously £260ish
BAD ... .. its about the same as Goodmans, Bush etc .. all the budget crap .. Better to save a little and get a better Brand
There are flashes on HLG iPlayer content on all Vestel TV's that use the MB230 motherboard (most 4K Hitachi, Toshiba, Medion TV's from last year). The flashes appear to happen when it switches bitrates during playback. Report it to BBC and they should look into it. The Fire Stick used to have the same issues, but they resolved that by disabling 4K/HDR altogether...
Cheers, yeah I was gonna try online today, see how I go. I know I got a recent update that meant I could switch HDMIs without getting "no source" so I don't have to switch to xbox in advance and wait for it to load up.. but still get some unresponsive issues, and sometimes I press Youtube and I briefly see Netflix or the browser first, that sort of thing. Year warranty nearly up! On a slightly different note, if I watch 4K iplayer (HLG - BBC's 4K HDR) I get flashes - His Dark Materials, I used to get a few bright flashes every episode. Wonder if this TV just doesn't like that HLG format!
I called them on 0345 604 0105 . But I think you should be able to email them directly on firstname.lastname@example.org If I get the bootable iso done - I will let you know
You turn off the TV at the wall and then boot into the usb stick and let it do its thing (upgrade and factory reset) pretty straight forward. Let me try and make a bootable iso image for you off the memory stick they sent me. Would need you to triple check you have the same model - as looks like there are 2/3 types
How did you contact Argos? Rather not be stuck on the phone with them if there's an easier way ;) Sometimes I have to load youtube and netflix just to get something to appear or stop flickering...
Cant really pick a fault here. Good spec, screen size and price. I'd have this but my £299 50" Bush LED 1080p is still going strong in year 6....
A link to confirm my post? It's just my own knowledge, not taken from any particular place. Vestel manufacture TV's for the following brands: Toshiba (EU brand owned by Vestel, their flagship TV's including OLED's). Hitachi (Argos Home Brand) Bush (Argos Home Brand) ElectriQ (Appliances Direct Home Brand, some ElectriQ are non-Vestel) Techwood (AO.com Home Brand) JVC (Curry's Home Brand, also sold @ Amazon for the Fire TV range) Panasonic (all sub-4K, 500 series 4K and some 600 series 4K) Polaroid (ASDA home brand) Medion (Aldi home brand) Linsar (also use other manufactuers depending on the model) There are others too, but the above brands are the most common at the moment.
Do you have a link or something for the information please?
Sony, Samsung, LG, Hisense, TCL, and Philips (TP Vision), all manufacture their own TV's and panels, or source panels from other manufacturers such as AU Optronics. None of them use Vestel panels or have TV's manufactured by Vestel (Philips did pre 2017).

Hitachi 58 Inch Smart 4K UHD LED TV with HDR (2020 model) - £360.99 delivered at Argos/ebay with code£360.99eBay Deals
Hi, I'm thinking of buying this for use with my Xbox one, will it be ok, or do you think it'll just look terrible? I play quite fast paced games
Actually its not a bad Panel . Direct lit not Edge lit, with good dimming, Superb if fed a good source but of course at the price processing for fancy modes is limited Proper Dolby Vision HDR as well as HLG and HDR10
Yep . it was £299 at Appliances Direct last week, not a bad TV for the price good smart features and a decent panel for the price. only downside is the motiion proccesing is a bit naff, so best having it in Game Mode to remove all the motion artifacts from processing
Indeed, both will be supermarket trash
And pretty much the same TV can be had for £320 under the ElectriQ brand name from here : https://www.appliancesdirect.co.uk/p/e58uhdhdrsq/electriq-e58uhdhdrsq-55-inch-led-tv?wgu=272125_116019_1581771476047_2d9ffbc893&wgexpiry=1589547476&utm_source=digidip%20GmbH&utm_medium=webgains&refsource=webgains
