1 Reason For

LG TVs Have Good Reviews

Mid-size TVs produced 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.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other comparable spec televisions that are a similar age to the 42LW551, the 42LW551 does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth considering other TVs which also have a WiFi connection including the Panasonic TX-L32E30, the Samsung UE48H6470, or the LG 47LB670 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Not 3D Compatible

The 42LW551 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for a similar time to the 42LW551 are also not 3D compatible.

Televisions which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE40H6470 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to the 42LW551, the 42LW551 does not have a built-in camera.

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

Running Costs Are Very High

This LG television is rated B for energy efficiency, and based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 42LW551 will cost £154 over 5 years to run, which makes it one of the most expensive to run televisions of this type and age.

Chart

Only Has One Smart Mode

The number of smart modes found on the 42LW551 is more than most TVs that have been around for around the same time as it. The most commonly found smart mode is Game, but this smart mode is not found on this LG TV. The smart modes Energy saving are also found on this television.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Most TVs of this type and age do not feature OLED technology. The 42LW551 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

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