9 Reasons For

LG TVs Have Good Reviews

4K and 8K TVs manufactured by LG have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all TVs (not just 4K and 8K TVs) and found that LG also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The LG 49UH5B has a WiFi connection, as do most of the other similar spec TVs that were launched more than a year ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including the UE55JS8000, or the UE55JS8500 ($2,297.99) both from Samsung which has better reviews.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a WiFi connection to this television and we think the LG 49UX960 is also worth considering.
