Not 3D

Like most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been available for a similar time to this television, the TechniLine 40 HD is not 3D.

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

Average High Frequency Rate

The TechniLine 40 HD has a fairly standard high frequency rate (100 hertz) compared to most of the other similar spec televisions that came out around the same time as this TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 100Hz refresh rate TVs and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UN46B7000 is also worth considering.

If this TV high frequency rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Samsung UE46F6400 (120Hz and higher rated).

Energy

Running Costs Are Very High

This TechniSat TV is rated B for energy efficiency, and the TechniLine 40 HD is one of the least economic to run TVs that were launched more than two years ago that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the TechniLine 40 HD will cost £147 over 5 years to run.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The TechniLine 40 HD does not support Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other TVs that have been around for around the same time as this TV which support Wi-Fi.
