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

Two SCART Ports

The 42LH2000 has more SCART ports than most of the comparable spec televisions that have been around for around the same time as the 42LH2000. This TV is a two SCART port television compared to most of the TVs of this spec and age which only have one SCART port.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The 42LH2000 does not have a WiFi connection, although keep in mind that most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to the 42LH2000 also do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] is also worth considering.

We think you might also be interested in other televisions which also support smart TV features including the Samsung UE40H6700[plb_2232461_price] which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

The 42LH2000 is not 3D compatible, although this is within the context that most of the other televisions of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.

If you want a television that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.
