Design

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 60LB730 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other large display diagonal televisions that have been on the market for more than two years also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the UE55F8000AT, the UE65ES8000S, or the UE65F8000 (£1,756.95) all from Samsung are also worth considering.

60 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 60 inch TV.

There are a number of other 60" TVs currently available that you might want to consider including the LG 60LB561, the Philips 60PFL9607S/12, or the Sony KDL-60NX720 which all of have better reviews.

If this television display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the LG 65LX341 (£999) (64.53" and higher rated), the Sony KD-65X8508 (65" and higher rated), or the Samsung UE65H8090 (65" and higher rated).
