7 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

Samsung mid-size TVs have good reviews on average and across all TVs Samsung is one of the better rated manufacturers.

3D Compatible

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3D compatible TVs currently available including because of it's better review score, the LG 42LW579.

We compared all the other TVs with a WiFi connection to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32E30, and the Sony KDL-48W600 is also worth considering.
