Not 3D

The 42LB5610 is not 3D, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that are a comparable age to this TV are also not 3D.

TVs which are 3D that might be worth considering include the Sony KDL-43W807 (£329.99), the Samsung UE50F6400 (£349.99), or the Philips 42PFT6309 (£349.99).

Quite Slow High Frequency Rate

The high frequency rates of televisions that were launched around the same time as this TV range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz. With a high frequency rate of only 50 hertz, the 42LB5610 has a quite slow high frequency rate compared to most of the other TVs of this spec and age.

There are a number of other 50Hz refresh rate TVs currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper TVs such as the LG 42LB550 (£299).

If this TV high frequency rate is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Hisense LTDN40K370 (100Hz and higher rated); or the Cello C40227 (60Hz and cheaper), or the Philips 40PFH4100 (£269.99) (60Hz and cheaper).

42 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 42 inch TV.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 42" TVs currently available including because of their better review scores, the Sony KDL-42W829 (£299.99), or the LG 42LB561 (£259).

TVs with a larger display diagonal that might be worth looking at include the KDL-43W807 (£329.99) (43" and higher rated), or the KDL-43W805 (£399) (43" and higher rated) both from Sony.
