55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inches television.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 55" televisions currently available including the Samsung UE55H6470 (£807.09) which has better reviews.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the NEC MultiSync E585 (£1,480.90) (58").
