Design

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 55LY960 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this television and we think the UN55ES8000F, or the ES8000 both from Samsung are also worth considering.

Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

supports Wi-Fi

The 55LY960 supports Wi-Fi, as do most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to this TV.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative televisions which support Wi-Fi currently available including because of their better review scores, the Samsung UE65H8090, or the Panasonic TX-55ASW804.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The LG 55LY960 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other large display diagonal TVs that were launched more than two years ago also do not feature OLED technology.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology including the Samsung KE55S9, or the LG 55EC930 (£1,334.99).

Quite Bright Display Brightness

At 450 candellas per square meter, the LG 55LY960 has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other TVs of this age and type. The dimmest display brightness of TVs that have been available for a comparable time to this TV is 220 cd/m² and the brightest is 1,500 cd/m².

55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inches television.

We compared this TV to all the other 55" televisions and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UE55H6200 (£549) is also worth considering.

TVs with a larger display diagonal that might be worth looking at include the NEC MultiSync E585 (£1,480.90) (58"), or the LG 65LX341 (£1,273.97) (64.53").

Weight & Dimensions

Average Depth

At 55.1 millimeters, the 55LY960 has a fairly typical depth compared to most of the other similar spec televisions that have been available for around the same time as this TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 55.1mm thick TVs and we think because of their better review scores, the 55LB670, and the 55LB730 (£449) both from LG are also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a thicker depth then you might want to look at the LG 55LB731 (£575) (55.1mm).
