12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other TVs of this spec and age, the 47LN540 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[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
