Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

Unlike most of the other televisions of a comparable age and type to the KDL-40R485 which do not have a WiFi connection, the Sony KDL-40R485 has a WiFi connection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price].

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The Sony KDL-40R485 does not support smart TV features, although it is worth noting that most of the other televisions of a comparable spec and age to the KDL-40R485 also do not support smart TV features.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a smart TV features and we think the Samsung UE40H6700[plb_2232461_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The KDL-40R485 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other TVs of a similar age and type to the KDL-40R485 are also 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.

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 KDL-40R485 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in 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.
