It is worth also looking at alternative TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Philips 22PFL3517[plb_1362439_price], the Panasonic TX-L24X6[plb_1986925_price], or the Samsung UE22F5400[plb_1489218_price] which also has a higher rating.

Most TVs of a similar type and age to the VT1602 do not feature OLED technology. The Viewsonic VT1602 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other televisions which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the LG 22MT55[plb_2295104_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
