4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Samsung has good average ratings for its mid-size TVs as well as across its entire TV range compared to other manufacturers.

3D Compatible

The PS43F4900 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec TVs that have been on the market for more than two years are not 3D compatible.

We compared this TV to all the other 3D compatible TVs and we think the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], and the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Supports Smart TV Features

The PS43F4900 supports smart TV features. Most of the other similar spec TVs that have been available for around the same time as the PS43F4900 do not support 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 Samsung UE40H6700[plb_2232461_price] is also worth considering.

Fairly High RMS Rated Power

The PS43F4900 has a fairly high RMS rated power (20 Watts) compared to most of the other similar spec televisions that have been available for a comparable time to the PS43F4900. The RMS rated power of TVs of a similar spec and age to the PS43F4900 range from 2W to 80W, and the average RMS rated power is 18W.

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other comparable spec TVs that came out more than two years ago, the Samsung PS43F4900 does not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most televisions of a similar age and type to the PS43F4900 do not have a built-in camera. The Samsung PS43F4900 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth considering alternative televisions 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 which also has a higher rating.
