Weight & Dimensions

Average Depth

With a depth of 62 millimeters, the 55 VLX 8481 has a pretty typical depth compared to most of the other televisions of a similar type and age to this TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 62mm thick TVs and we think because of its better review score, the Panasonic TX-55AX630 (£951.39) is also worth considering.

55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inch TV.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 55" TVs currently available including the Panasonic TX-55CX750, or the Samsung UE55JU7090 which both of have better reviews.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Samsung UN60JU6500 (60") which also has a higher rating.
