The UE40H4200 does not support Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other similar spec televisions that are a comparable age to this television which support Wi-Fi.

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

40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 40" TVs currently available including because of their better review scores, the Samsung UE40D5000, or the Toshiba 40L3453.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the LG 42LF580 (£299) (42") which is also higher rated.
