55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inch TV.

We compared all the other 55" televisions to this TV and we think the Samsung UN55ES8000F, and the LG 55LW650 which both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

TVs with a larger display diagonal that might be worth looking at include the Sony KDL-60W855 (£399.99) (60") which also has a higher rating.
