7 Reasons Against

Not Robust

One LG 42LA620 reviewer who bought the product considered that it was not easy to damage or scratch. Expert review site Digitalmediaandit.com said in their review “However previous experience has taught me that out of the box settings are usually terrible so I broke out my AVS HD 709 calibration videos”.

Difficult to Use

One LG 42LA620 owner wrote in their reviews that it was not easy to use the menus.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

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.

This LG TV supports a JPG image format, which is the most commonly supported image format supported by comparable spec TVs that have been around for a similar time to the 42LA620. The image formats "JPS" and "MPO" are also supported by this television.

Chart Edit

Only Analog Tuner

This TV has an Analog & Digital tuner, which is typical of many TVs of a comparable age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 42LA620 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other mid-size TVs that came out more than two years ago also do not feature OLED technology.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also feature OLED technology including the Samsung UE46H7000[plb_2232247_price] which also has a higher rating.
