Reviewed 4 December 2015 by Debrag
Debrag would recommend the TCL 40FS3800 (Verified Purchase)

I purchased this TV because of the new 4G plus I already own a sharp aquos that is 10 years old and still works and looks like a new one great tv...

Ease of use - The easiest TV to use and install
Quick input response - Absolutely no lag when using the remote or any of the programs
Variety - tons of programs to chose from
Picture Quality - surprisingly good for a smart TV
1080p, 120 Hz - 40", perfect size for people living in apartments with confined space
Could be a little cheaper since 1080p is becoming old technology but this is a competitive price in the smart TV market
