3 Reasons For

LG Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

LG has good average reviews for its mid-size TVs as well as across its entire TV range compared to other brands.

Supports Smart TV

The 42LB5700 supports smart TV, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions that have been around for more than two years do not support smart TV.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs which support smart TV and we think the Samsung UN32H5500 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Three USB 2.0 Ports Quantitys

three USB 2.0 ports quantitys

The LG 42LB5700 has more USB 2.0 ports quantitys than most of the similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to the 42LB5700. This TV is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity TV compared to most of the TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 42LB5700 which only have between one and two USB 2.0 ports quantitys.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that were released around the same time as the 42LB5700, the 42LB5700 does not have a wi-Fi.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a wi-Fi and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30, or the LG 42LB670 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Not 3D

The LG 42LB5700 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other televisions of this type and age are also not 3D.

If you are looking for a television that is 3D then you might also want to consider the 42LW579, or the 47LB670 both from LG which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The 42LB5700 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other mid-size TVs that are a comparable age to the 42LB5700 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other televisions with a built-in camera and we think the UE46ES8000S, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 42LB5700 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 42LB5700 also do not feature OLED technology.

With a motion interpolation frequency of only 100 hertz, the LG 42LB5700 has a quite slow motion interpolation frequency compared to most of the other similar spec televisions that were released more than two years ago.
