7 Reasons For

LG Has Good TV Reviews

LG is one of the superior TV manufacturers according to average reviews from users and experts, and LG also has good reviews for its 4K and 8K TVs.

Supports Smart TV Features

It is worth also looking at alternative TVs which also support smart TV features including the LG 55UH625[plb_3384921_price], the Samsung UE49KU6500[plb_3346958_price], or the Philips 49PUS6501[plb_3305115_price].

With a refresh rate of only 100 hertz, the LG 55UH661 has a quite slow refresh rate compared to most of the other similar spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 55UH661.

We compared all the other 100Hz refresh rate televisions to this TV and we think the LG 49UH650[plb_3350276_price] which is cheaper; or the LG 49UH668[plb_3349688_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

TVs with a faster refresh rate that might also be worth considering include the Hisense UB50EC591[plb_3382176_price] (800Hz), the Panasonic TX-49DX650[plb_3406081_price] (1,000Hz), or the LG 49UH620[plb_3406077_price] (1,200Hz) which is also cheaper.
