3 Reasons For

LG Has Good Television Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all LG televisions and also specifically for LG mid-size TVs and found that in both cases LG had good ratings.

Quite Bright Display Brightness

The display brightnesses of TVs of this age and type range from 160 cd/m² to 3,000 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 350 cd/m². At 400 candellas per square meter, the LG 42WL30 has a fairly bright display brightness compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

At only 3.56 millimeters, the LG 42WL30 has a very thin thickness compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for more than two years. The thinnest thickness of mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the 42WL30 is 3.5mm, the thickest is 100mm, and the average thickness is 62mm.

TVs with a thicker thickness that might also be worth looking at include the Toshiba 32D1333 (£329.00) (25.3mm).

10 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Like most of the other TVs of a similar age and type to the 42WL30, the LG 42WL30 does not have a WiFi connection.

It is worth also looking at other televisions 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

Most televisions of a comparable age and type to the 42WL30 do not support smart TV features. The LG 42WL30 is no exception to this as it too does not support smart TV features.

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

Not 3D Compatible

Most mid-size TVs that have been around for more than two years are not 3D compatible. The LG 42WL30 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a television 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 LG 42WL30 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other televisions of a similar age and spec to the 42WL30 also do 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 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The LG 42WL30 does not feature OLED technology, although keep in mind that most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for more than two years also do not feature OLED technology.

We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also feature OLED technology including the Samsung UE46H7000 (£849.00).
