32 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 32 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 32" TVs and we think the Philips 32PHH4200 (£179) which is cheaper; or the Panasonic TX-32C300 (£209), and the Samsung UE32J5100 (£174.99) both of which have better reviews are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a television with a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the JVC LT-39C460 (£144.99) (39") which is also cheaper.
