4 Reasons For

Good Brand

We checked 6,328 expert and user reviews for LG televisions and found that on average LG has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that LG has good ratings specifically within its mid-size TVs range.

Good High Def TV

One customer who bought the product reckoned that it was good at displaying high definition TV. Expert website Lcdtvbuyingguide.com wrote in their review of this TV “The LN5400 series displays at full HD resolution with a 120Hz panel for fast action playback” and rated it 4 stars.

1080p Video Mode

This television supports a 1080p video mode, which is the most frequently supported video mode on mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years.

Chart Edit

Has Six Smart Modes

The number of smart modes found on the 42LN5400 is more than most televisions that are a similar age to it. This television has a Game smart mode, which is the most frequently found smart mode found on TVs that are a similar age to the 42LN5400. The smart modes "Cinema", "Energy saving", "Sports", "Standard" and "Vivid" are also found on this LG television.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This television has an average expert rating of 51 out of 100 based on four expert reviews from sites including Digital Versus, lcdtvbuyingguide.com, Les Numeriques.com and reviewed.com. If all the mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years are ranked by average expert review score then this TV is in the bottom 6%.

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most televisions that have been around for a similar time to the 42LN5400 do not have a WiFi connection. The LG 42LN5400 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth considering alternative TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the Philips 47PFH5609 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Like most of the other TVs of this spec and age, the LG 42LN5400 does not support smart TV features.

There are a number of alternative televisions which also support smart TV features that you might also want to consider including the UN32EH5300, or the UE48H6470 both from Samsung or the LG 47LB670.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The 42LN5400 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other TVs of a comparable age and type to the 42LN5400 are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the LG 42LW579, the Samsung UN40ES6500, or the Panasonic TX-47AS802 which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 42LN5400 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other TVs that have been around for a comparable time to the 42LN5400 also do not have a built-in camera.

Alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at include the UE46ES8000, or the UN46ES8000 both from Samsung or the Philips 48PFS8109 which is also higher rated.

Only Analog Tuner

This TV has an Analog & Digital tuner, which is typical of many TVs of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The LG 42LN5400 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth noting that most of the other televisions that are a comparable age to the 42LN5400 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this television and we think the LOEWE Art 32 (£699.00), or the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
