LG Televisions Have Good Reviews

Mid-size TVs produced by LG have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that LG also has good ratings across its entire range.

Has a WiFi Connection

has a WiFi connection

Unlike most of the other televisions of this age and spec which do not have a WiFi connection, the 42LN549 has a WiFi connection.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other TVs with a WiFi connection currently available including the Panasonic TX-L32E30[plb_30112_price], the Samsung UE48H6470[plb_2240459_price], or the LG 47LB670[plb_2232214_price] which has better reviews.

8 Reasons Against

Like most of the other comparable spec TVs that were launched around the same time as the 42LN549, the LG 42LN549 does not support smart TV features.

Not 3D Compatible

If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the LG 42LW579[plb_326450_price], or the Samsung UE40H6470[plb_2233881_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most TVs of this type and age do not have a built-in camera. The 42LN549 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the UE46ES8000[pl_1355897_price], the UN46ES8000[pl_1484430_price], or the UE40F7000[pl_1494094_price] all from Samsung which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
