3 Reasons For

LG Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

Mid-size TVs produced by LG have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that LG also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports Smart TV Features

The 42LB5700 supports smart TV features, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions that were released around the same time as the 42LB5700 do not support smart TV features.

We compared all the other TVs which support smart TV features to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung UE48H6470, and the LG 42LB670 is also worth considering.

Three USB 2.0 Ports

three USB 2.0 ports

The LG 42LB5700 is a three USB 2.0 port TV. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that were launched around the same time as the 42LB5700 only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most mid-size TVs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 42LB5700 do not have a WiFi connection. The LG 42LB5700 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

There are a number of alternative televisions which also have a WiFi connection that you might want to consider including the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the LG 47LB670.

Not 3D Compatible

The 42LB5700 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other TVs of a comparable spec and age to the 42LB5700 are also not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE40H6470.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for a similar time to the 42LB5700, the LG 42LB5700 does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera that you might want to consider including the UE46ES8000, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Most mid-size TVs that were launched around the same time as the 42LB5700 do not feature OLED technology. The LG 42LB5700 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
