2 Reasons For

LG Televisions Have Good Reviews

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

Supports Five Audio Formats

The number of audio formats supported by the LG 42LY330 is more than most televisions of this age and type. This TV supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most frequently supported audio format supported by comparable spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 42LY330. The audio formats "AAC", "AC3", "EAC3" and "PCM" are also supported by this television.

14 Reasons Against

Very Slow Refresh Rate

Mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 42LY330 have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz. With a refresh rate of only 50 hertz, the 42LY330 has one of the slower refresh rates amongst televisions of this age.

If this TV refresh rate is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Cello C39226 (£249.00) (60Hz), the Philips 40PFS6909 (£499.99) (60Hz), or the Seiki SE32HO03 (£179.99) (60Hz).

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other televisions of this age and type, the LG 42LY330 does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth also looking at 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

The 42LY330 does not support smart TV features, although this is within the context that most of the other televisions of this spec and age also do not support smart TV features.

We compared all the other televisions which also support smart TV features to this television and we think the Samsung UE40H6700 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 42LY330 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for around the same time as the 42LY330 are also not 3D compatible.

TVs 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

Most mid-size TVs that have been available for a similar time to the 42LY330 do not have a built-in camera. The 42LY330 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

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