1 Reason For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its Televisions

We calculated the average ratings for all Samsung TVs and also specifically for Samsung mid-size TVs and found that in both cases Samsung had good ratings compared to other brands.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The HG40EC670 does not have a WiFi connection, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the HG40EC670 also do not have a WiFi connection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The HG40EC670 does not support smart TV features. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been available for around the same time as the HG40EC670 also do not support smart TV features.

Other televisions which also support smart TV features that you might also want to consider include the Samsung UE40H6700[plb_2232461_price] which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the HG40EC670, the HG40EC670 is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a television that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.

Running Costs Are Very High

Whilst this TV is rated A+ for energy efficiency, the HG40EC670 is in the most expensive 17% of all 714 TVs of this age and spec that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical energy prices, we estimate the HG40EC670 will cost £143 over 5 years to run.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that were launched more than two years ago, the HG40EC670 does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UE46ES8000[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very Low RMS Rated Power

TVs of a comparable age and type to the HG40EC670 have RMS rated power of between 2W and 80W. At only 10 Watts, the Samsung HG40EC670 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for around the same time as the HG40EC670.

Chart Edit

Only Analog Tuner

This TV has an Analog tuner, which is the most frequently found tuner on mid-size TVs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The HG40EC670 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other TVs of this age and type also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
