10 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Smart TV

Like most of the other small display diagonal televisions that were released around the same time as the VT1602, the Viewsonic VT1602 does not support smart TV.

There are a number of other TVs which also support smart TV which you might want to look at including the 28LB490, or the 28LF491 (£222.99) both from LG or the Philips 22PFL3517T/60 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

The Viewsonic VT1602 does not have a wi-Fi, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other televisions that have been around for around the same time as the VT1602 also do not have a wi-Fi.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with a wi-Fi and we think the 23RL933, or the 24D3434 both from Toshiba or the LG 28LF491 (£222.99) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D

Most TVs of this age and spec are not 3D. The Viewsonic VT1602 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D.

If you are looking for a TV that is 3D then you might also want to consider the Salora 24LED6100, or the Samsung UE22F5000 (£157.97) which also has a higher rating.
