3 Reasons For

Good Brand

Mid-size TVs produced by Samsung have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that Samsung also has good reviews across its entire range.

Very Light

The average weight of comparable spec televisions that are a similar age to the HG32EC673 is 10kg, and the weights range from 3.7kg to 36kg. With a weight of only 5.6 kilograms, the HG32EC673 is fairly light compared to most of the other TVs of a comparable spec and age to the HG32EC673.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Annual Energy Consumption

When compared to other TVs of a comparable age and type to the HG32EC673 that we have assessed, the annual energy consumption of the Samsung HG32EC673 of only 42 kilowatt hours is one of the lowest. The lowest annual energy consumption of televisions of this type and age is 0.22kWh, the highest is 620kWh, and the average annual energy consumption is 76kWh.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The Samsung HG32EC673 does not have a WiFi connection. Most of the other televisions that were released more than two years ago also do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a WiFi connection to this TV and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the LG 47LB670 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Most televisions of a comparable age and spec to the HG32EC673 do not support smart TV features. The HG32EC673 is no exception to this as it too does not support smart TV features.

We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV features to this television and we think the Samsung UE40H6700 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The HG32EC673 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other TVs that are a similar age to the HG32EC673 are also not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth looking at include the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE40H6470.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Samsung HG32EC673 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the HG32EC673 also do not have a built-in camera.

Other TVs which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider include the UE46ES8000, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Only Analog Tuner

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The Samsung HG32EC673 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been available for more than two years also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Very Dim Display Brightness

Chart Edit

A 1366 x 768 pixels display resolution is in fact the worst supported display resolution amongst all televisions that were released more than two years ago.

Amongst comparable types of TV the best supported display resolution is 1920 x 1080 pixels.
