LG Has Good Television Reviews

LG has good average ratings for its 4K and 8K TVs as well as across its entire TV range compared to other brands.

Supports Smart TV Features

Like most of the other televisions of this type and age, the 79UG880 supports smart TV features.

Chart Edit

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The 79UG880 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 79UG880.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung UE55JU7590[plb_2866375_price].

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other televisions of a similar age and type to the 79UG880, the LG 79UG880 does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera including the LG 105UC9[plb_2828825_price], or the Samsung UN88JS9500[plb_3186351_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The LG 79UG880 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other televisions of a comparable spec and age to the 79UG880 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other televisions which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the 55EG9609[pl_2899573_price], or the 65EG9609[pl_2938944_price] both from LG which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

The 79UG880 is a two USB 2.0 port TV. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been available for around the same time as the 79UG880 have between one and three USB 2.0 ports.
