Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

The HG40ND690 supports smart TV features, as do most of the other similar spec TVs that came out around the same time as the HG40ND690.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The Samsung HG40ND690 does not have a WiFi connection. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for around the same time as the HG40ND690 do have a WiFi connection.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most televisions of a comparable type and age to the HG40ND690 do not have a built-in camera. The HG40ND690 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the LG 105UC9[plb_2828825_price], or the Samsung UN88JS9500[plb_3186351_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only Has One Smart Mode

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been around for more than a year, the HG40ND690 does not feature OLED technology.

There are a number of alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology which you might want to look at including the 55EG9609[pl_2899573_price], or the 65EG9609[pl_2938944_price] both from LG which is also higher rated.
