3 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Television Reviews

1.4 HDMI Version

This TV has a 1.4 HDMI version, which is typical of many TVs of a similar age and spec to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption

The HG28EC470 has a quite low annual energy consumption (only 31 kilowatt hours) compared to most of the other small screen size televisions that are a comparable age to the HG28EC470. Across all the small screen size televisions that were released around the same time as the HG28EC470 the annual energy consumptions range from 22kWh to 95kWh.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The Samsung HG28EC470 does not have a WiFi connection, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec televisions that came out more than two years ago also do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think the Philips 22PFL3517, or the Panasonic TX-L24X6 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The HG28EC470 does not support smart TV features, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other TVs of this age and spec 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 Philips 22PFL3517 which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

Most televisions of this spec and age are not 3D compatible. The HG28EC470 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other small screen size televisions that were launched more than two years ago, the Samsung HG28EC470 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are Very High

This Samsung TV has an efficiency rating of A+, however the HG28EC470 has an average running cost of £73 over 5 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the most expensive to run small screen size televisions that were released more than two years ago.

Chart

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The Samsung HG28EC470 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other televisions of this type and age also do not feature OLED technology.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Power Consumption in Power Save Mode

The lowest power consumption in power save mode of TVs of this age and type is 0.3W, the highest is 31W, and the average power consumption in power save mode is 14W. The HG28EC470 has a fairly high power consumption in power save mode (21 Watts) compared to most of the other small screen size televisions that are a comparable age to the HG28EC470.

Chart Edit

Fairly Thick

The average thickness of small screen size televisions that are a similar age to the HG28EC470 is 54mm, and the thicknesses range from 2.7mm to 98mm. At 62.9 millimeters, the Samsung HG28EC470 has a quite thick thickness compared to most of the other small screen size televisions that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 62.9mm thick TVs to this TV and we think the Samsung T24D310 (£166.18) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
