"Nearing the top of LG's ranges, this television has almost everything you could desire! What's it missing? Virtually nothing - there's

no built in web cam and the refresh rate is a little lower than on the top end models, but look at that price! Well worth considering."

The LG 42LA690V is a great looking television at a bargain price - but does it match up to its competitors?  It's certainly got superb picture quality, with solid black levels and crisp, clear details. 3D performance is good, with 4 pairs of glasses included, and the set will do a reasonable job of 2D to 3D conversion.

With almost all new televisions bulging with Smart features today, it's become a battlefield for manufacturers.  LG have spent a good deal of effort making sure their offering stands out from the crowd with an exclusive deal with the new NOW TV service from Sky. This lets you access Sky's huge range of movies and sport, as well as several of the most popular digital channels for a montly fee. Add this to the old standards like BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm, Netflix, Blinkbox, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Skype (optional camera required) and LG have provided a great line up of connected apps. The TV will also act as a media hub, supporting a huge range of audio and video formats, which you can play from USB, or using DLNA from your computer or network.  You can also use a Miracast phone or tablet to share your content.

With 3 HDMI ports and a good range of other video and audio inputs and outputs, you should be able to connect up your other equipment with the minimum of fuss.  If you have a spare USB hard drive, you can also connect this to the TV to enable recording of your favourite programmes.  A genuinely capable television at an entry-level price point.
