8 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One customer concluded that the LG 32LE5900 was not cheap. Six years ago Expertreviews.co.uk mentioned “The LG 32LE5900 is quite an expensive 32in TV.” but in spite of that they gave it a rating of 80 out of 100. One LG 32LE5900 reviewer who reviewed it said that it was not good value for money. Expert review site Techradar.com mentioned “That aggressive price isn't only”.

Inferior Stand

One customer who reviewed the product reckoned that it did not have a good stand. Expert website Expertreviews.co.uk said in their LG 32LE5900 review “The bezel and stand both have a dark glossy finish.” .

Running Costs Are Very High

The 32LE5900 has an average 5 year running cost of £133 based on average energy prices, which makes it one of the most expensive to run similar spec TVs that were released more than two years ago.

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most similar spec TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 32LE5900 do not have a WiFi connection. The 32LE5900 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a WiFi connection to this television and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE40H6670, or the LG 47LB670 is also worth considering.
