48 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 48 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 48" televisions and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UE48H6400 (£549.99) is also worth considering.

If this TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Samsung UE50H6200 (£499.98) (50" and cheaper); or the Panasonic TX-50CS520 (£599) (50" and higher rated), or the Samsung UN55H6400 (54.6" and higher rated).
