15 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a WiFi Connection
Like most of the other similar spec televisions that were launched around the same time as the 32W1333, the 32W1333 does not have a WiFi connection.
We compared all the other televisions which also have a WiFi connection to this TV and we think the Toshiba L4353 (£143.68) or the Toshiba 46WX800 are also worth considering.
Not Smart TV
The 32W1333 is not Smart TV, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec TVs that were launched more than two years ago are also not Smart TV.
The 32W1333 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other TVs of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.
If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Cello C32227 (£139.99) or the Toshiba 46WX800.
Quite Slow Refresh Rate
TVs of a comparable age and spec to the 32W1333 have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 170Hz. When compared to other mid-size TVs that came out around the same time as the 32W1333 that we have checked, the 32W1333's refresh rate of only 50 hertz is one of the slowest.
TVs with a faster refresh rate that might also be worth looking at include the LG 32LB550 (£507.77) (100Hz and higher rated) or the Cello C32227 (£139.99) (60Hz and cheaper), or the Toshiba L4353 (£143.68) (100Hz and cheaper).
