3 Reasons For

LG Has Good TV Reviews

LG is one of the better rated TV manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and LG also has good ratings for its mid-size TVs.

3D Compatible

The 42LM3450 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions of this spec and age are not 3D compatible.

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

Supports Four Audio Formats

The LG 42LM3450 has a greater number of audio formats than most mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as it. This TV supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most frequently supported audio format supported by similar spec TVs that were released around the same time as the 42LM3450. The audio formats "AAC", "AC3" and "PCM" are also supported by this television.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The 42LM3450 does not have a WiFi connection, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for a comparable time to the 42LM3450 also do not have a WiFi connection.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the LG 47LB670 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The 42LM3450 does not support smart TV features. Most of the other comparable spec TVs that have been available for more than two years also do not support smart TV features.

It is worth also looking at alternative TVs which also support smart TV features including the Samsung UE40H6700 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The LG 42LM3450 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 42LM3450 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with a built-in camera and we think the UE46ES8000, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
