Not 3D

The Samsung UD46CB is not 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to this TV are also not 3D.

TVs which are 3D that might be worth considering include the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE48H6700.

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

Across all the televisions of a comparable type and age to this television the high frequency rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 220Hz. The Samsung UD46CB has a fairly slow high frequency rate (only 60 hertz) compared to most of the other TVs of this spec and age.

Alternative 60Hz refresh rate TVs currently available which you might want to consider include because of its better review score, the LG 42LN5200.

If this TV high frequency rate is too slow for you then you might want to consider the 50LB650 (100Hz and higher rated), or the 42LB650 (£479.09) (100Hz and higher rated) both from LG.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic TX-47AS650 (47" and higher rated), or the Toshiba 47L6453 (47" and higher rated).

Networking

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Samsung UD46CB does not support Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been on the market for more than two years which support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other televisions which also support Wi-Fi to this TV and we think the LG 42LW579, or the Panasonic TX-47AS650 are also worth considering.
