8 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good TV Reviews

On average Samsung mid-size TVs have good reviews as do all TVs manufactured by Samsung.

3D Compatible

The HG46EC890 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been around for around the same time as the HG46EC890 are not 3D compatible.

Other 3D compatible televisions currently available which you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the LG 42LW579.

Supports Smart TV Features

Unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that were launched around the same time as the HG46EC890 which do not support smart TV features, the HG46EC890 supports smart TV features.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs which support smart TV features and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony KDL-40W605 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 televisions of a comparable spec and age to the HG46EC890 do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared all the other televisions with a WiFi connection to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32E30 is also worth considering.

Two RF Ports

The HG46EC890 is a two RF port television. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been available for a similar time to the HG46EC890 have between one and two RF ports.

Chart Edit

Very High Subwoofer RMS Power

Across all the mid-size TVs that came out more than two years ago the subwoofer RMS power range from 10W to 20W, and the average subwoofer RMS power is 15W. At 20 Watts, the Samsung HG46EC890 has a very high subwoofer RMS power compared to most of the other comparable spec televisions that were released more than two years ago.

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 mid-size TVs that have been around for a similar time to the HG46EC890 is 9.2ms, and the response times range from 2ms to 400ms.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

Across all the TVs that came out more than two years ago the thicknesses range from 3.5mm to 100mm. The Samsung HG46EC890 has a quite thin thickness (only 33.2 millimeters) compared to most of the other televisions of this spec and age.

Other 33.2mm thick TVs currently available that you might also want to consider include the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which has better reviews.

TVs with a thicker thickness that might also be worth looking at include the LG 47LM760 (33.4mm and higher rated).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The HG46EC890 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other TVs that have been around for more than two years also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a built-in camera and we think the UE46ES8000, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Only Analog Tuner

This TV has an Analog & Digital tuner, which is typical of many TVs of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other TVs of this type and age, the HG46EC890 does not feature OLED technology.

It is worth also looking at alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology including the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which is also higher rated.
