4 Reasons For

Samsung TVs Have Good Reviews

On average Samsung small TVs have good ratings as do all televisions manufactured by Samsung.

3000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio

The HG28EC470 has a maximum typical contrast ratio of 3000:1. That's over three times the typical contrast ratio of the most common typical contrast ratio of 1000:1.

This TV's typical contrast ratio (3000:1) is actually the best typical contrast ratio amongst all small TVs that have been around for more than a year.

Amongst comparable types of TV the worst typical contrast ratio is 1000:1.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative televisions that have a 3000:1 typical contrast ratio currently available including the Toshiba 24W1433 (£134.99) which has a better Rating.

The HG28EC470 has a fairly standard thickness (62.9 millimeters) compared to most of the other small TVs that were released around the same time as the HG28EC470.
