11 Reasons Against

It is worth also looking at other TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the LG 55LB561[plb_2233834_price], or the Sony KDL-60W605[plb_2296576_price] which also has a higher rating.

The 50L2436 does not support smart TV features, unlike most of the other TVs of a comparable age and type to the 50L2436.

We think you might also be interested in other televisions which also support smart TV features including the Samsung UE55D7000[plb_344784_price], or the Sony KDL-50W828[plb_2229287_price] which also has a higher rating.

Most large TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 50L2436 do not have a built-in camera. The 50L2436 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the Samsung UN55ES8000[plb_403312_price], or the Panasonic TX-55ASW804[plb_2382034_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
