The KDL-47W800 has a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other TVs that are a similar age to the KDL-47W800 which do not have a WiFi connection.

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

We compared this TV to all the other 400Hz refresh rate TVs and we think because of it's better review score, the Philips 42PFL6007[plb_1416114_price], the LOEWE Individual 40[plb_1894376_price], and the Samsung UE40F6800[plb_2161639_price] is also worth considering.

If this television refresh rate is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Samsung UE40H7000[plb_2232260_price] (600Hz) which also has a higher rating.
