Running Costs Are Low

This television has an efficiency rating of A+. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 5 year running cost of the LT-40C550 is only £74, which makes it one of the more economic to run comparable spec televisions that came out more than two years ago.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LT-40C550 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been around for around the same time as this TV also do not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at other TVs which also have a built-in camera including the Samsung UN46ES8000F which also has a higher rating.

At only 50 hertz, the LT-40C550 has a very slow motion interpolation frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec televisions that were released more than two years ago.

Weight & Dimensions

Average Depth

At 68.7 millimeters, the LT-40C550 has a pretty average depth compared to most of the other televisions that are a similar age to this TV.

We compared all the other 68.7mm thick TVs to this television and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UE48H6410 (£592.29) is also worth considering.
