We compared all the other TVs which also have a wi-Fi to this TV and we think the UE32K5579[pl_3434604_price], or the UE40K5500[pl_3346899_price] both from Samsung is also worth considering.

Only Two HDMI Ports Quantitys
The UE49K5100 is a two HDMI ports quantity TV. Most of the other TVs that were released in the last 12 months have between one and three HDMI ports quantitys.

We compared this TV to all the other 88mm thick TVs and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-40DS400[plb_3332580_price] is also worth considering.
Televisions with a thicker depth that might also be worth looking at include the Samsung UE40K6300[plb_3416493_price] (89.1mm), or the Hisense H49M2600[plb_3365572_price] (87mm) which is also higher rated.
