Good Brand

3D Compatible

Unlike most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 42LM3400 which are not 3D compatible, the LG 42LM3400 is 3D compatible.

Alternative 3D compatible televisions currently available that you might want to consider include the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], the Philips 47PFK7109[plb_2165072_price], or the Samsung UE32H6410[plb_2236817_price] which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

Expert review website parentesis.com scored this LG TV 60%. This means that experts really don't rate this mid-size TV very highly.

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other comparable spec televisions that came out around the same time as the 42LM3400, the 42LM3400 does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth also looking at alternative TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE40H6670[plb_2247334_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Most televisions that have been on the market for a similar time to the 42LM3400 do not support smart TV features. The LG 42LM3400 is no exception to this as it too does not support smart TV features.

Other TVs which also support smart TV features that you might want to look at include the UN40ES6500[pl_403274_price], or the UE40H6700[pl_2232461_price] both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 42LM3400 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years also do not have a built-in camera.

Alternative televisions which also have a built-in camera that you might also want to look at include the UE46ES8000[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which is also higher rated.

Quite Low RMS Rated Power

TVs that have been available for more than two years have RMS rated power of between 2W and 80W. The LG 42LM3400 has a quite low RMS rated power (only 10 Watts) compared to most of the other TVs that are a similar age to the 42LM3400.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The LG 42LM3400 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other TVs of this type and age also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the LOEWE Art 32[plb_2089147_price], or the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Average Refresh Rate

At 100 hertz, the LG 42LM3400 has a relatively typical refresh rate compared to most of the other televisions of this age and type.

We compared all the other 100Hz refresh rate televisions to this TV and we think the 32LE5900[pl_904230_price], and the 32LE5500[pl_904163_price] both from LG or the Samsung UE46C6200[plb_164321_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this mid-size TV refresh rate is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the UE46F6400[pl_2149162_price] (120Hz), or the UE40F6400[pl_1494093_price] (120Hz) both from Samsung or the Haier LE39M7000[plb_2470601_price] (120Hz) which is also higher rated.
