Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Like most of the other TVs that were released around the same time as this TV, the LG 47LB561 does not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the Panasonic TX-47AS740 (£379.99); or the UE48H8000 (£429.99), or the UE46F8000 (£399.99) both from Samsung are also worth considering.

Not 3D

The 47LB561 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been on the market for a similar time to this television are also not 3D.

If you are looking for a TV that is 3D then you might want to look at the UE40H6200 (£422.79), the UE48H8000 (£429.99), or the UE46F8000 (£399.99) all from Samsung.

Quite Slow High Frequency Rate

Across all the similar spec TVs that are a comparable age to this TV the high frequency rates range from 50Hz to 1,600Hz, and the average high frequency rate is 220Hz. At only 50 hertz, the LG 47LB561 has a very slow high frequency rate compared to most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that were released more than two years ago.

If this TV high frequency rate is too slow for you then you might want to look at the Philips 40PFK4100 (£420.93) (60Hz and cheaper).

47 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 47 inches television.

There are a number of alternative 47" televisions currently available that you might want to look at including the Philips 47PFL3188 (£379.99), or the Panasonic TX-47AS740 (£379.99) both of which are cheaper.
