Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The JLE42BC3001 does not support Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other TVs of a comparable age and spec to this television which support Wi-Fi.

It is worth considering alternative TVs which also support Wi-Fi including the 42LW579, or the 47LB730 both from LG.

Not 3D

Like most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that are a similar age to this TV, the JVC JLE42BC3001 is not 3D.

If you want a TV that is 3D then you might want to look at the LG 42LW579 which also has a higher rating.

Very Slow High Frequency Rate

The high frequency rates of TVs of this spec and age range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 200Hz. The JLE42BC3001 has a quite slow high frequency rate (only 60 hertz) compared to most of the other televisions that have been on the market for around the same time as this TV.

We compared all the other 60Hz refresh rate televisions to this television and we think because of their better review scores, the LG 42LN5200, and the Philips 46PDL8908 are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a faster high frequency rate then you might want to look at the Hisense LTDN40K370 (£267.99) (100Hz) which also has a higher rating.
