We compared all the other TVs which support smart TV to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the UE40H6590, and the UE40H6470 both from Samsung or the LG 32LW570 is also worth considering.

Has a Wi-Fi

has a wi-Fi

Unlike most of the other TVs of this spec and age which do not have a wi-Fi, the UN40ES6500 has a wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other TVs with a wi-Fi currently available including the TX-L32E30, or the TX-42ASW654 both from Panasonic or the Samsung UE40H6470 which has better reviews.

If this mid-size TV high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the UE40H7000 (£599.00) (600Hz), or the UE40H6670 (600Hz) both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.
