5 Reasons For

Good Brand

LG mid-size TVs have good ratings on average and across all TVs LG is one of the superior brands.

Supports Two Audio Formats

The LG 47LV3550 has a greater number of audio formats than most televisions that have been on the market for more than two years. This TV supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most frequently supported audio format supported by TVs of a similar spec and age to the 47LV3550. The audio format "AAC" is also supported by this LG TV.

Chart Edit

Has Three Smart Modes

The number of smart modes found on the LG 47LV3550 is more than most TVs of a similar age and type to it. The most commonly found smart mode is Game, but this smart mode is not found on this LG TV. The smart modes Cinema, Natural and Personal are also found on this television.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Response Time

With a response time of only 4 milliseconds, the 47LV3550 has one of the faster response times amongst mid-size TVs of this age. The response times of comparable spec TVs that were launched more than two years ago range from 2ms to 400ms, and the average response time is 9.2ms.

Chart Edit

Very Thin

With a thickness of only 30.4 millimeters, the 47LV3550 has one of the thinner thicknesses amongst TVs of this age. TVs of a comparable type and age to the 47LV3550 have thicknesses of between 3.5mm and 100mm.

If you are not bothered about having a thicker thickness then you might also want to look at the Samsung UE46C6200[plb_164321_price] (30mm).

11 Reasons Against

Very Slow Refresh Rate

At only 50 hertz, the 47LV3550 has a fairly slow refresh rate compared to most of the other TVs that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the similar spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 47LV3550 the refresh rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 180Hz.

If you are looking for a faster refresh rate then you might want to look at the JVC LT-32C461[plb_3406110_price] (60Hz), or the Philips 32PHK4509[plb_2237006_price] (60Hz).

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most mid-size TVs that have been around for more than two years do not have a WiFi connection. The 47LV3550 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with a WiFi connection and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The 47LV3550 does not support smart TV features. Most of the other TVs that came out more than two years ago also do not support smart TV features.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also support smart TV features including the Samsung UE40H6700[plb_2232461_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 47LV3550 is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec TVs that have been available for a comparable time to the 47LV3550 are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 47LV3550 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other TVs that have been available for a similar time to the 47LV3550 also do not have a built-in camera.

Alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the UE46ES8000[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

The LG 47LV3550 does not feature OLED technology, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been around for around the same time as the 47LV3550 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
