3D Compatible

The LG 55EC940 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions of this age and spec are not 3D compatible.

The 55EC940 supports smart TV features, as do most of the other televisions of this spec and age.

The 55EC940 features OLED technology, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the 55EC940 do not feature OLED technology.

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

When compared to other large TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 55EC940 that we have checked, the RMS rated power of the 55EC940 of 40 Watts is one of the highest. The lowest RMS rated power of televisions of this age and spec is 10W, the highest is 60W, and the average RMS rated power is 21W.

Chart Edit

Two RF Ports

The LG 55EC940 is a two RF port TV. Most of the other large TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 55EC940 have between one and two RF ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

If you would consider a TV with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the LG 50LF652 (£299.90) (54.5mm), or the Panasonic TX-50CS520 (£445.00) (47mm) which is also higher rated.
