8 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

One customer concluded that the LG 32LE5900 was not cheap.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

Most comparable spec TVs that have been available for around the same time as the 32LE5900 do not have a wi-Fi. The 32LE5900 is no exception to this as it too does not have a wi-Fi.

Alternative TVs which also have a wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the TX-L32E30[pl_30112_price], or the TX-42ASW654[pl_2252496_price] both from Panasonic or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.
