2 Reasons For

LG TVs Have Good Reviews

On average LG mid-size TVs have good ratings as do all TVs produced by LG.

5000:1 Typical Contrast Ratio

The 40LX541 has a maximum typical contrast ratio of 5000:1. That's over four times the typical contrast ratio of the most common typical contrast ratio of 1200:1.

The worst typical contrast ratio across similar types of TV is 1200:1.

£59.17 Price Increase

In the last 32 days the price of the 40LX541 has increased by £59.17.

Not Smart TV

The 40LX541 is not Smart TV, unlike most of the other comparable spec televisions that are a similar age to the 40LX541 which are Smart TV.

Televisions which are Smart TV that might be worth considering include the KDL-43WD754 (£419.00), or the KDL-43WD752 (£419.00) both from Sony or the LG 49UF640 (£518.46).

Not 3D Compatible

Most TVs of this type and age are not 3D compatible. The 40LX541 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a TV that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the Sony KDL-43W805 (£399.00).

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most televisions of this type and age do not have a built-in camera. The 40LX541 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with a built-in camera and we think the LG 47LB656 is also worth considering.
