12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The 42LN5200 does not have a WiFi connection. Most of the other similar spec televisions that have been around for a comparable time to the 42LN5200 also do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a WiFi connection and we think the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], or the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The 42LN5200 does not support smart TV features. Most of the other televisions of this age and spec also do not support smart TV features.

We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also support smart TV features including the Panasonic TX-40AS640[plb_2232477_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 3D Compatible

The LG 42LN5200 is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other televisions that were released more than two years ago are also not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Panasonic TC-L47ET5[plb_403365_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.

The 42LN5200 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other televisions that are a comparable age to the 42LN5200 also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV 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 is also worth considering.
