8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most televisions that have been around for a comparable time to the LT-40C551 do not have a WiFi connection. The LT-40C551 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible
