2 Reasons For

JVC Has Good TV Reviews

Televisions built by JVC generally have good ratings compared to other brands.

Light

With a weight of only 6.4 kilograms, the LT-40C550 is fairly light compared to most of the other TVs of this age and spec. The lightest television of a comparable age and spec to the LT-40C550 is 1.4kg heavy and the heaviest is 36kg.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most TVs that were launched around the same time as the LT-40C550 do not have a WiFi connection. The LT-40C550 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth considering other TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Like most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to the LT-40C550, the LT-40C550 does not support smart TV features.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most mid-size TVs that have been available for a similar time to the LT-40C550 are not 3D compatible. The LT-40C550 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the LG 42LW579, or the Panasonic TX-40AS640 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The JVC LT-40C550 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other TVs that were launched around the same time as the LT-40C550 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UE46ES8000, or the UN46ES8000 both from Samsung which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Slow Motion Interpolation Frequency

With a motion interpolation frequency of only 50 hertz, the LT-40C550 has a very slow motion interpolation frequency compared to most of the other televisions of this type and age. The motion interpolation frequencies of mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago range from 50Hz to 1,800Hz.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The JVC LT-40C550 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to the LT-40C550 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this television and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Dim Display Brightness

At only 280 candellas per square meter, the LT-40C550 has a fairly dim display brightness compared to most of the other TVs that have been around for more than two years. TVs that were released more than two years ago have display brightnesses of between 160 cd/m² and 3,000 cd/m².

Average Thickness

At 68.7 millimeters, the LT-40C550 has a pretty standard thickness compared to most of the other TVs that came out more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 68.7mm thick televisions to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung UE48H6410 is also worth considering.
