8 Reasons Against

Not Cheap

We think this LOEWE TV looks expensive compared to other comparable spec TVs that were released in the last year. The cheapeast new comparable spec television that we found costs £175 and the most expensive costs £19,999.

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most of the other recently released 4K and 8K TVs have a WiFi connection, however the Reference does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth also looking at alternative TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the LG OLED65E6[plb_3372690_price].
