8 Reasons For

Supports Smart TV Features

Like most of the other TVs that came out around the same time as the 40 VLE 6522, the 40 VLE 6522 supports smart TV features.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Refresh Rate

The 40 VLE 6522 has a quite fast refresh rate (200 hertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 40 VLE 6522. The average refresh rate of mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the 40 VLE 6522 is 110Hz.

We compared all the other 200Hz refresh rate TVs to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony KDL-40W705 (£349.00) is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a TV with a faster refresh rate then you might also want to consider the 32LF5610 (£174.99) (300Hz), or the 43LF510 (£215.00) (300Hz) both from LG which also has a higher rating.

7 Reasons Against

Very High Running Costs

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Chart Edit

We compared all the other televisions which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the Samsung UN50J6200 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
