It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 54.5mm thick TVs currently available including the 42LF652[pl_2835500_price], or the 32LF650[pl_2898998_price] both from LG which has better reviews.

2 Reasons Against

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 47LB656 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 47LB656 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this television and we think the Samsung UN50J6200[plb_2958294_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
