One person who purchased it considered that it did not have a good 3D picture quality. Two years ago Trusted Reviews said “Crosstalk and motion issues with 3D”.

Quite Slow Refresh Rate

When compared to other televisions that came out around the same time as the 42L7453 that we have assessed the refresh rate of, the 42L7453's refresh rate of only 50 hertz is one of the slowest.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 50Hz refresh rate TVs currently available including because of it's better review score, the Toshiba 32L2434[plb_2182969_price], or the Samsung UE32EH4000[plb_1343806_price].

If this TV refresh rate is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the 48PFS8109[pl_2283263_price] (60Hz and higher rated), or the 40PFT4009[pl_2442832_price] (60Hz and higher rated) both from Philips or the Seiki SE32HO03[plb_3404273_price] (60Hz and higher rated).
