has a WiFi connection

The Samsung DB40E has a WiFi connection, which is unusual. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been on the market for more than a year do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared all the other TVs with a WiFi connection to this TV and we think the Sony KDL-43W807[plb_2803096_price], and the LG 42LF652[plb_2835500_price] which has better reviews; or the Hisense LTDN40K370[plb_3890628_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.
