Expert Reviews Are Average

Twelve experts from sites including Trusted Reviews, Techradar, T3.com and Pocket Lint have rated this TV on average 74%.

Good Size

A few LG 15EL9500 owners thought the product was thin. Six years ago Whathifi.com wrote “Slim, flat TVs are nothing new –” in their review and gave this TV a score of 4 stars. Expert website T3.com mentioned in their LG 15EL9500 review “Wafer thin and sharper than new pencil, this is a statement TV that shows exactly what OLED is capable of”.

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all LG TVs and also specifically for LG small screen size televisions and found that in both cases LG had good reviews compared to other brands.

One customer who reviewed the product concluded that it was well made.

Easy to Use

One person wrote in their reviews that this TV was easy to use. Expert website Whathifi.com mentioned in their review “It's also the largest yet to use an Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display”.

Good Stand

One customer who bought the product said that it had a good stand.

Good High Def TV

One customer who reviewed this TV reckoned that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Gadgetshow.channel5.com mentioned six years ago “It measures in at just 3mm in depth, has an HD resolution of 1366 x 768” in their review of this TV.

Reasonably Priced

One customer reckoned that it was a bargain for the price. Trustedreviews.com gave the LG 15EL9500 a rating of 4 stars and mentioned on Trusted Reviews “In place of the cheap brown or white cardboard”.

Good Environmental Credentials

One LG 15EL9500 reviewer said in their reviews that the LG 15EL9500 was good in terms of power usage.

Fairly Fast Refresh Rate

The refresh rates of televisions that were launched around the same time as the 15EL9500 range from 50Hz to 350Hz, and the average refresh rate is 71Hz. With a refresh rate of 100 hertz, the LG 15EL9500 has a quite fast refresh rate compared to most of the other TVs that are a similar age to the 15EL9500.

Televisions with a faster refresh rate that might be worth looking at include the Haier LE22M600 (£143.32) (200Hz).

8 Reasons Against

Other TVs which also have a WiFi connection that you might want to consider include the Philips 22PFL3517, or the Panasonic TX-L24X6.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The 15EL9500 does not support smart TV features, although this is within the context that most of the other small screen size televisions that have been around for more than two years also do not support smart TV features.

It is worth considering alternative televisions which also support smart TV features including the Philips 22PFL3517 which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Chart
