7 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

3D Compatible

The HG46EC890 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to the HG46EC890 are not 3D compatible.

We compared this television to all the other 3D compatible TVs and we think the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports Smart TV Features

The Samsung HG46EC890 supports smart TV features, unlike most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to the HG46EC890 which do not support smart TV features.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions which support smart TV features and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], and the LG 42LB670[plb_2232215_price] is also worth considering.

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The HG46EC890 has a WiFi connection, which is unusual. Most of the other TVs of a similar type and age to the HG46EC890 do not have a WiFi connection.

There are a number of other TVs with a WiFi connection currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], or the Sony KDL-48W600[plb_2238282_price].

Chart Edit

Very Fast Response Time

At only 4 milliseconds, the HG46EC890 has a fairly fast response time compared to most of the other TVs of a similar age and spec to the HG46EC890. The average response time of comparable spec televisions that were launched around the same time as the HG46EC890 is 9.2ms.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

At only 33.2 millimeters, the HG46EC890 has a fairly thin thickness compared to most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been around for more than two years. Similar spec TVs that have been around for around the same time as the HG46EC890 have thicknesses of between 3.5mm and 100mm.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 33.2mm thick televisions currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price].

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the HG46EC890 do not have a built-in camera. The HG46EC890 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also have a built-in camera including the UE46ES8000[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung.
