4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 6,328 expert and user reviews, LG has good reviews for its TVs. LG also has good reviews specifically for its mid-size TVs.

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

Unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have a WiFi connection, the 42LB561 has a WiFi connection.

We compared all the other TVs with a WiFi connection to this TV and we think the Samsung UE32H5500[plb_2299413_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

There are a number of other TVs which also have a WiFi connection that you might also want to look at including the LG 32LB580[plb_2230634_price], or the Sony KDL-32R433[plb_2169590_price].

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The LG 42LB561 does not support smart TV features, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec TVs that were released more than two years ago also do not support smart TV features.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also support smart TV features including the UE32F6100[pl_2161651_price], or the UE32H5500[pl_2299413_price] both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that are a comparable age to the 42LB561, the 42LB561 is not 3D compatible.

If you want a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the UE32F6100[pl_2161651_price], the UE32H6200[pl_2234257_price], or the UE32H6400[pl_2232460_price] all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

The 42LB561 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to the 42LB561 also do not feature OLED technology.
