2 Reasons For

LG Has Good Television Reviews

We calculated the average reviews for all LG TVs and also specifically for LG mid-size TVs and found that in both cases LG had good reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Smart TV Features

The 47LY540 supports smart TV features. Most of the other televisions of a comparable age and spec to the 47LY540 do not support smart TV features.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative televisions which support smart TV features currently available including the Samsung UE32H6410[plb_2236817_price] which has better reviews.
