Running Costs Are Very Low

The average 5 year running cost of the 42LY340 is only £56 based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the cheapest to run TVs of a comparable type and age.

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

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for more than two years, the 42LY340 does not have a WiFi connection.

There are a number of other televisions which also have a WiFi connection which you might also want to consider 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 42LY340 does not support smart TV features, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the 42LY340 also do not support smart TV features.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also support smart TV features including the Samsung UE40H6700 which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

The 42LY340 is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other TVs of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE40H6470 which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 42LY340 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec TVs that have been around for a comparable time to the 42LY340 also do not have a built-in camera.

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

Only Analog Tuner

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

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The LG 42LY340 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth noting that most of the other TVs of this spec and age also do not feature OLED technology.

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

We compared all the other 60Hz refresh rate televisions to this television and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30, and the Philips 32PHT4509 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this TV refresh rate is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Hisense LHD32K370 (£210.99) (100Hz).
