5 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Excellent

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Smart TV

The Reference does not support smart TV, unlike most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that have been around for more than a year which support smart TV.

We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV to this TV and we think the 65EG960[pl_2880027_price], or the 55EG960[pl_2879979_price] both from LG which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that are a similar age to the Reference have a wi-Fi, however the Reference does not have a wi-Fi.

There are a number of other televisions which also have a wi-Fi that you might want to consider including the 65EG960[pl_2880027_price], or the 55EG960[pl_2879979_price] both from LG which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that are a similar age to the Reference, the LOEWE Reference does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the Samsung UE65JS9500[plb_2824055_price] is also worth considering.

There are a number of other televisions which also feature OLED technology that you might want to consider including the 65EG960[pl_2880027_price], or the 55EG960[pl_2879979_price] both from LG which also has a higher rating.
