6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Samsung mid-size TVs have good ratings on average and across all TVs Samsung is one of the better rated brands.

3D Compatible

Unlike most of the other televisions that have been available for around the same time as the HG40EC890 which are not 3D compatible, the HG40EC890 is 3D compatible.

We compared all the other 3D compatible TVs to this television and we think the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which has better reviews; or the Samsung UE46F6800[plb_2149160_price], and the Panasonic TX-39ASW754[plb_2381129_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative TVs which support smart TV features currently available including the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which has better reviews; or the Samsung UE46F6800[plb_2149160_price], or the Panasonic TX-39ASW754[plb_2381129_price] which is cheaper.
