Design

Not Good Looking

Two owners who reviewed the LG 43LF5100 thought it was not good looking. Website Newegg.com wrote in their review of this TV “Little sage from the beefy cooler, can be pretty loud under high load” but even so they still scored the product the highest possible rating of 5 stars. They also mentioned “Runs pretty hot at around 85 degrees under stock fan settings with 240 intake” in their review.

Good Quality

Two customers thought this TV was good quality. Website Newegg.com scored it 5 stars out of 5 and said “It does provide really great graphics quality for movies” in their LG 43LF5100 review. The Cleaner mentioned in April last year “The setup was simple and the quality of the product far exceeds my expectations” and rated this TV 5 stars out of 5.


Audio

Does Not Have Good Sound Quality

Three customers concluded that this TV did not have good sound quality. Website Newegg.com said “It will sound like a box fan is running in the room once you put this card in your case” . Jeremy12o34 gave it a rating of 40 out of 100 and mentioned in their review of this TV “Has no audio outputs”. Alfanovember wrote on expert website Walmart.com two years ago “1- The sound, NOT clear for movies” but in spite of that they gave it a rating of 4 stars out of 5.

Unacceptable Noise Level

Not 3D

The 43LF5100 is not 3D. Most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been around for more than a year are also not 3D.

If you want a TV that is 3D then you might want to consider the Samsung UE40H6670, the Philips 40PFH6510, or the Sony Bravia Pro 55" 3D TV.

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 43LF5100 does not feature OLED technology, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec TVs that have been available for a comparable time to this TV also do not feature OLED technology.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology including the Samsung UN50J6200, or the Haier LEF42V200.

43 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 43 inch TV.

We compared all the other 43" TVs to this television and we think because of their better review scores, the 43LX541 (£598.65), and the 43LX310 both from LG or the Samsung UE43J5502 are also worth considering.

Televisions with a larger display diagonal that might be worth considering include the Samsung UN48J6200 (47.6" and higher rated), the Philips 48PFK4101 (48" and higher rated), or the Grundig 48 VLE 5520 (£487.99) (48" and higher rated).

Networking

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The 43LF5100 does not support Wi-Fi, unlike most of the other TVs of a comparable spec and age to this TV which support Wi-Fi.

We compared all the other televisions which also support Wi-Fi to this TV and we think the TCL-Digital F50S4805, the Changhong LED50D3000, or the Telefunken TE43282B34C2K are also worth considering.
