50″ Full HD Smart TV £399.99, Hitachi and JVC

You see and offer for a Full HD 50″ Smart TV for just £399.99 and think that looks interesting and then another one comes along at the same price.


The first one I spotted was on the Argos web site, they are currently offering the Hitachi 50HYT62U 50 Inch Full HD Freeview HD Smart LED TV for £399.99.

I then found that Currys are selling the JVC LT-50TW60J Smart 50″ LED TV for a web exclusive price of £399.00.

I decided to compare the two models and they are remarkably similar, some might say suspiciously similar. The same weight, same dimensions, and power consumption. If you look at the web site images of the rear connector panels have an identical layout, the HDMI, RF, VGA Ethernet and SCART sockets are all in exactly the same position.

So what are the specs for these televisions?

  • 50″ screen with LED backlight
  • Full HD (1080p) with 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • Freeview HD tuner (DVB-T) – Watch HD TV via your TV aerial
  • 7 day Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) – see what TV shows are coming up over the next week
  • SMART TV – connect you TV to you internet to use BBC iPlayer, Facebook etc on your television
  • 400 x 400 mounting – attach the TV set to your wall
