55” 4K Smart Tv €350 Argos

https://m.argos.ie/static/Product/pa...%3EHitachi.htm

I don’t know much about tv’s but seems good to me. I reserved one but don’t to get it or not.

There is an error in the listing it has 3 HDMI & 2 USB ports not ten other way around.

I'm far from an expert on TVs but bought a similar Hitachi TV from Argos recently and had to bring it back within a couple of weeks as it was awful. Kept turning itself off etc....

Dont do it OP. You can get actual LGs for a similar price in currys. They wont be that size, but they'd have better features such as HDR.

Interesting that it’s using the Web OS operating system.

I’d definitely spend the bit extra on an LG though, you’ll get a 49” for €389 in Curry’s.

If you want a 55" and don't have a huge budget, this is a much better option, plus it's backed by a 6 year warranty.

For comparison purposes: a 55" almost-best TV like LG OLED C8 can be had for less than e1000. And this keeps dropping as newer models come out.

They're just trying to sell you TVs tbh, I wouldn't just go on their recommendations alone.
You really should be doing your own research first, avforums etc.

They're probably the best to buy from though but not always cheapest either
