40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 40" TVs and we think the LOEWE Art 40 (£999) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the SE42FO02 (£269) (42"), or the SE42FS03 (£269) (42") both from Seiki or the JVC LT-42C571 (£269) (42").
