9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The HG46EC770 does not have a wi-Fi, although this is within the context that most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for a comparable time to the HG46EC770 also do not have a wi-Fi.

Alternative TVs which also have a wi-Fi that you might want to consider include the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], or the LG 42LB670[plb_2232215_price].

Does Not Support Smart TV

Most mid-size TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the HG46EC770 do not support smart TV. The HG46EC770 is no exception to this as it too does not support smart TV.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a smart TV and we think the LG 42LB670[plb_2232215_price] is also worth considering.

Not 3D

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D then you might also want to look at the 42LW579[pl_326450_price], or the 47LB670[pl_2232214_price] both from LG which is also higher rated.

The HG46EC770 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other televisions of a comparable type and age to the HG46EC770 also do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also have a built-in camera including the UE46ES8000S[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which is also higher rated.
