42 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 42 inch TV.

We compared all the other 42" TVs to this television and we think because of their better review scores, the Philips 42PFT6309 (£349.99), and the LG 42LB561 (£259) are also worth considering.

If you want a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Sony KDL-43WD752 (£419.97) (43").
