4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most mid-size TVs that have been around for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The LG 42LB670 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also have a built-in camera including 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.

This TV has an Analog & Digital tuner, which is the most frequently found tuner on mid-size TVs that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 42LB670 does not feature OLED technology, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec televisions that have been available for a similar time to the 42LB670 also do not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other televisions which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] is also worth considering.
