2 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

Supports Smart TV

The PS43F4900 supports smart TV. Most of the other TVs that have been available for a similar time to the PS43F4900 do not support smart TV.

We compared all the other TVs which support smart TV to this TV and we think the LG 42LB670 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The PS43F4900 does not have a wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a wi-Fi.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most televisions of this type and age do not have a built-in camera. The PS43F4900 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at other TVs which also have a built-in camera including the UE46ES8000S, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which is also higher rated.
