49 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 49 inches television.

We compared all the other 49" televisions to this TV and we think because of their better review scores, the 49LX761, the 49LF5100 (£379.98), and the 49LF631 all from LG are also worth considering.

Televisions with a larger display diagonal that might be worth considering include the Changhong LED50D3000 (49.5" and higher rated), the Haier LE50K5000 (50" and higher rated), or the TCL-Digital F50S4805 (50" and higher rated).
