12 Reasons For

Expert Reviews Are Average

Six experts from sites including computerbild.de, hifitest.de, erenumerique.fr and digitallife.se have rated this television on average 79 out of 100.

LG Has Good TV Reviews

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

3D Compatible

The 42LB670 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to the 42LB670 are not 3D compatible.

We compared all the other 3D compatible televisions to this TV and we think because of it's better review score, the UE32F6400, and the UE40H6470 both from Samsung or the LG 42LW579 is also worth considering.

Supports Smart TV Features

Unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for more than two years which do not support smart TV features, the LG 42LB670 supports smart TV features.

Chart Edit

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

Unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 42LB670 which do not have a WiFi connection, the 42LB670 has a WiFi connection.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative televisions with a WiFi connection currently available including because of it's better review score, the Panasonic TX-L32E30.

Quite Fast Refresh Rate

With a refresh rate of 200 hertz, the LG 42LB670 has one of the faster refresh rates amongst mid-size TVs of this age. Similar spec televisions that were released more than two years ago have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 180Hz.

We compared this television to all the other 200Hz refresh rate televisions and we think the Samsung UE37ES6300, and the Sony KDL-32W705 (£279.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this TV refresh rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the UE48H6400 (£449.99) (400Hz), or the UE32H6400 (£314.99) (400Hz) both from Samsung which is also higher rated.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for a similar time to the 42LB670, the LG 42LB670 does not feature OLED technology.

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