3 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

We checked 22,708 owner and expert reviews for Samsung televisions and found that on average Samsung has good ratings. We also found that Samsung has good ratings specifically for its mid-size TVs.

With a display brightness of 450 candellas per square meter, the Samsung HG40EC770 has a quite bright display brightness compared to most of the other televisions of a comparable type and age to the HG40EC770. The display brightnesses of comparable spec TVs that were released more than two years ago range from 160 cd/m² to 3,000 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 350 cd/m².

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other televisions of this type and age, the HG40EC770 does not have a WiFi connection.

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

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Most televisions of a similar type and age to the HG40EC770 do not support smart TV features. The HG40EC770 is no exception to this as it too does not support smart TV features.

We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also support smart TV features including the Samsung UE40H6700 which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The HG40EC770 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other TVs that have been available for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.

Televisions which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE40H6470 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most mid-size TVs that have been available for around the same time as the HG40EC770 do not have a built-in camera. The HG40EC770 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative televisions which also have a built-in camera which you might want to look at including the UE46ES8000, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The HG40EC770 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been available for a similar time to the HG40EC770 also do not feature OLED technology.

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