5 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This TV has an energy efficiency rating of A+, and the 55UZ8766 has an average 5 year running cost of £121 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the cheaper to run TVs that have been on the market for more than two years.

Supports Smart TV

The 55UZ8766 supports smart TV. Most of the other similar spec TVs that were released more than two years ago also support smart TV.

We compared all the other TVs which support smart TV to this TV and we think the 84LM960[pl_1467110_price], and the 77EC980[pl_2513154_price] both from LG or the Sony KD-85X9505[plb_2340160_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
