40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 40" televisions and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UE40JU7000 (£699) is also worth considering.

If this Panasonic television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the LG 43UF640 (£449.95) (43" and higher rated), or the Panasonic TX-49CX740 (49" and higher rated).
