9 Reasons Against

Most of the other large TVs that have been available for a comparable time to the LT-50C550 have a WiFi connection, however the JVC LT-50C550 does not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a WiFi connection and we think the LG 50LB561[plb_2295119_price], or the Samsung UE50H6200[plb_2233929_price] or the Hisense LTDN50K220[plb_2476282_price] are also worth considering.

We compared all the other televisions which also support smart TV features to this TV and we think the LG 50LF561[plb_2955144_price], or the Samsung UE50H6200[plb_2233929_price]; or the Hisense LTDN50K220[plb_2476282_price] are also worth considering.
