This JVC television was released in July 2013.


Design

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LT-40C551 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that were released more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the UN46ES8000F, or the UN46F8000BF both from Samsung are also worth considering.

Not 3D

The LT-40C551 is not 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other televisions of a similar age and spec to this TV are also not 3D.

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D then you might want to consider the LG 42LW579.

40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 40" televisions and we think the Hisense LTDN40D36 (£249) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Televisions with a larger display diagonal that might be worth looking at include the JVC LT-42C550 (£329) (42").

With a depth of 68.7 millimeters, the LT-40C551 has a relatively average depth compared to most of the other TVs of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 68.7mm thick televisions currently available including because of its better review score, the Samsung UE48H6410 (£592.29).
