14 Reasons For

One Industry Award

The expert at one expert review site concluded that this TV was good. Hdtvtest.co.uk gave this LG TV a "Qualified Recommendation" award.

Expert Reviews Are Average

The average expert rating of this TV is 70 out of 100 based on four expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus, Les Numeriques.com, lemondenumerique.com and digitalmediaandit.com.

LG TVs Have Good Reviews

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

Good 3D Picture Quality

One customer who reviewed this TV thought it had a good 3D picture quality. Digitalmediaandit.com said in their LG 42LA620 review in October last year “Good 3D mode with no crosstalk” and scored the product 80 out of 100.

Reasonably Priced

One LG 42LA620 owner mentioned in their reviews that the LG 42LA620 was good value for money. Expert review site Hdtvtest.co.uk said in their review of this TV three years ago “The company's core television sales are still made up of LED LCD TVs especially of the more affordable kind”.

3D Compatible

The LG 42LA620 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions of this age and spec are not 3D compatible.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3D compatible TVs currently available including because of it's better review score, the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price].

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

The 42LA620 has a WiFi connection, unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the 42LA620 which do not have a WiFi connection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] which has better reviews.

Three USB 2.0 Ports

three USB 2.0 ports

Most of the other mid-size TVs that are a comparable age to the 42LA620 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports, however the 42LA620 has three USB 2.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Two RF Ports

The 42LA620 is a two RF port TV. Most of the other TVs that are a comparable age to the 42LA620 have between one and two RF ports.

Chart Edit

Supports Three Audio Formats

The LG 42LA620 has a greater number of audio formats than most TVs of a similar age and type to it. This television supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most commonly supported audio format supported by mid-size TVs that were launched more than two years ago. The audio formats "AAC" and "AC3" are also supported by this TV.

7 Reasons Against

Not Robust

One LG 42LA620 reviewer who bought the product considered that it was not easy to damage or scratch. Expert review site Digitalmediaandit.com said in their review “However previous experience has taught me that out of the box settings are usually terrible so I broke out my AVS HD 709 calibration videos”.

Difficult to Use

One LG 42LA620 owner wrote in their reviews that it was not easy to use the menus.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 42LA620 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 42LA620 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the UE46ES8000[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Only Supports Three Image Formats

The 42LA620 has a greater number of image formats than most televisions of a similar age and spec to it. This LG TV supports a JPG image format, which is the most commonly supported image format supported by comparable spec TVs that have been around for a similar time to the 42LA620. The image formats "JPS" and "MPO" are also supported by this television.

Chart Edit

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also feature OLED technology including the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which also has a higher rating.
