We checked 7,001 expert and user reviews for LG TVs and found that on average LG has good reviews. We also found that LG has good reviews specifically for its mid-size TVs.

Four Number of Loudspeakerss

The 42LH2000 is a four number of loudspeakers television.

Chart Edit

Two SCART Ports Quantitys

Most of the other similar spec TVs that came out more than two years ago only have one SCART ports quantity, however the 42LH2000 has two SCART ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

Fairly Bright Display Brightness

Across all the TVs of this type and age the display brightnesss range from 160 cd/m² to 1,500 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 330 cd/m². With a display brightness of 500 candellas per square meter, the 42LH2000's display brightness is one of the brightest amongst mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Response Time

The average response time of televisions of this age and spec is 8.3ms, and the response times range from 2ms to 20ms. The LG 42LH2000 has a fairly fast response time (only 5 milliseconds) compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that were released more than two years ago.

Does Not Have a Wi-Fi

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 42LH2000, the 42LH2000 does not have a wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also have a wi-Fi including the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], or the LG 42LB670[plb_2232215_price] which is also higher rated.

The 42LH2000 does not support smart TV. Most of the other TVs that were launched more than two years ago also do not support smart TV.

There are a number of other TVs which also support smart TV which you might also want to consider including the LG 42LB670[plb_2232215_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D

The LG 42LH2000 is not 3D. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for more than two years are also not 3D.

If you are looking for a television that is 3D then you might also want to look at the 42LW579[pl_326450_price], or the 47LB670[pl_2232214_price] both from LG which is also higher rated.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UE46ES8000S[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
