3 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

Samsung has good average reviews for its mid-size TVs as well as across its entire TV range.

Two SCART Ports

The LE40B650 has more SCART ports than most of the mid-size TVs that have been available for around the same time as the LE40B650. This TV is a two SCART port TV compared to most of the mid-size TVs that are a comparable age to the LE40B650 which only have one SCART port.

10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This TV received an expert rating of 50% from pcworld.pl. Television experts don't rate this television very highly.

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other televisions of a comparable age and type to the LE40B650, the Samsung LE40B650 does not have a WiFi connection.

We compared all the other televisions which also have a WiFi connection to this television and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the Philips 47PFH5609 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The Samsung LE40B650 does not support smart TV features. Most of the other televisions of this spec and age also do not support smart TV features.

Other TVs which also support smart TV features that you might also want to consider include the UN32EH5300, or the UE48H6470 both from Samsung or the LG 47LB670 which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The LE40B650 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other similar spec televisions that were released more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The LE40B650 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera including the UE46ES8000, or the UN46ES8000 both from Samsung or the Philips 48PFS8109 which also has a higher rating.

High Running Costs

Chart

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Most televisions of this age and spec do not feature OLED technology. The LE40B650 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the LOEWE Art 32 (£699.00), or the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
