6 Reasons For

Samsung TVs Have Excellent Reviews

On average Samsung mid-size TVs have excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all TVs built by Samsung.

Just Released Three Months Ago

This TV was released just three months ago. Newer televisions like this one are likely to use better technology.

Smart TV

Like most of the other comparable spec TVs that were launched in the last year, the HG40EE690 is Smart TV.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative Smart TV televisions currently available including the Panasonic TX-40DX600 (£385.00) which is cheaper.

TVs which are Smart TV that might be worth looking at include the Sony KDL-32WD755, or the Samsung UE49K6300 (£289.00).

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The HG40EE690 has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other latest mid-size TVs.

We compared all the other TVs with a WiFi connection to this TV and we think the Panasonic TX-40DX600 (£385.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative televisions which also have a WiFi connection that you might want to consider including the Sony KDL-32WD755, or the Samsung UE49K6300 (£289.00).

Quite Thin

Latest comparable spec televisions have thicknesses of between 7.1mm and 99mm, and the average thickness is 69mm. The HG40EE690 has a fairly thin thickness (only 54.1 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec TVs that are a similar age to the HG40EE690.

If you would consider a television with a thicker thickness then you might want to look at the UE40K5600 (£379.95) (54.9mm), or the UE40KU6400 (£444.11) (54.6mm) both from Samsung which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the HG40EE690, the Samsung HG40EE690 does not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other televisions that were launched in the last year, the HG40EE690 does not feature OLED technology.
