Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The 32HYC01 does not support Wi-Fi, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been on the market for more than a year also do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other TVs which also support Wi-Fi to this television and we think the Philips 32PFK5300 is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Ethernet Port

Fairly Fast High Frequency Rate

The slowest high frequency rate of small display diagonal televisions that have been available for around the same time as this TV is 50Hz, the fastest is 400Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 100Hz. The 32HYC01 has one of the faster high frequency rates (100 hertz) amongst TVs of this age.

If this Hitachi TV high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the KDL-32WD603 (£259.90) (200Hz), or the KDL-32RD433 (£239) (200Hz) both from Sony.
