The LG 42LA620 does not have a built-in camera, although keep in mind that most of the other mid-size TVs that have been around for around the same time as the 42LA620 also do not have a built-in camera.
We compared this television to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the UE46ES8000[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.
