4 Reasons For

Samsung TVs Have Good Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all Samsung TVs and also specifically for Samsung mid-size TVs and found that in both cases Samsung had good reviews compared to other brands.

Two DVI-D Ports

The Samsung UD46CB has more DVI-D ports than most of the TVs of a similar age and spec to the UD46CB. This Samsung television is a two DVI-D port television compared to most of the TVs that were released more than two years ago which only have one DVI-D port.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most TVs that were released more than two years ago do not have a WiFi connection. The Samsung UD46CB is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

Other TVs which also have a WiFi connection that you might want to look at include 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.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The Samsung UD46CB does not support smart TV features, although this is within the context that most of the other mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the UD46CB also do not support smart TV features.

We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV features to this television and we think the Samsung UE40H6700[plb_2232461_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

Most televisions of a comparable spec and age to the UD46CB are not 3D compatible. The Samsung UD46CB is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which is also higher rated.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 60Hz refresh rate televisions currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], or the LG 42LN5200[plb_1734334_price].
