Design

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The SE40FO04 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that were released more than two years ago also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the Samsung UN46ES8000F which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
