Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other comparable spec TVs that are a similar age to this TV, the LT-49C550 does not have a built-in camera.

Other televisions which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the Samsung UN46ES8000F which is also higher rated.

Not 3D

The LT-49C550 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been available for around the same time as this TV are also not 3D.

If you want a TV that is 3D then you might want to consider the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE48H6700.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been available for around the same time as this television, the JVC LT-49C550 does not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other televisions which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Slow Motion Interpolation Frequency

The average motion interpolation frequency of TVs that are a comparable age to this TV is 310Hz. When compared to other medium display diagonal TVs that are a similar age to this TV that we have assessed, the motion interpolation frequency of the LT-49C550 of only 50 hertz is one of the slowest.

49 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 49 inches television.

Alternative 49" TVs currently available which you might want to consider include because of their better review scores, the 49LF6309, or the 49LF5400 both from LG.

Televisions with a larger display diagonal that might be worth considering include the Hisense LTDN50K220 (£365) (50").
