8 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good TV Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Samsung televisions and also specifically for Samsung mid-size TVs and found that in both cases Samsung had good ratings compared to other brands.

Supports Smart TV

The Samsung HG46EC890 supports smart TV. Most of the other TVs of a comparable age and type to the HG46EC890 do not support smart TV.

We compared all the other televisions which support smart TV to this TV and we think the Toshiba 47L7453 (£669.00) which has better reviews; or the LOEWE Art 32 (£699.00) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

It is worth considering other televisions which also support smart TV including the Panasonic TX-47AS740 (£749.90).

Has a Wi-Fi

has a wi-Fi

Unlike most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to the HG46EC890 which do not have a wi-Fi, the HG46EC890 has a wi-Fi.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative televisions with a wi-Fi currently available including the Panasonic TX-42AS740 (£699.90), or the LOEWE Art 32 (£699.00) which is cheaper.

Alternative TVs which also have a wi-Fi that you might want to look at include the LG 47LY760.

Quite Thin

Televisions of this age and spec have depths of between 3.5mm and 100mm. With a depth of only 33.2 millimeters, the Samsung HG46EC890 has one of the thinner depths amongst mid-size TVs of this age.

We compared all the other 33.2mm thick televisions to this TV and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a thicker depth then you might want to look at the Toshiba 47L7453 (£669.00) (17mm) which is also higher rated.
