8 Reasons For

Good Brand

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

3D Compatible

The LG 47LB731 is 3D compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions of this age and spec are not 3D compatible.

Other 3D compatible TVs currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the LG 42LW579.

Unlike most of the other televisions of a similar spec and age to the 47LB731 which do not have a WiFi connection, the 47LB731 has a WiFi connection.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a WiFi connection and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30, and the Sony KDL-48W600 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

With an RMS rated power of 24 Watts, the 47LB731 has one of the higher RMS rated power amongst TVs of this age. Across all the similar spec televisions that have been on the market for more than two years the RMS rated power range from 2W to 80W.

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The 47LB731 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

It is worth also looking at other TVs which also have a built-in camera including the UE46ES8000, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung.
