55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inches television.

We compared this TV to all the other 55" televisions and we think because of their better review scores, the 55LW5590, and the 55LA660 both from LG or the Sony FWD-55W800P/T are also worth considering.

If this TV display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the UE58H5203 (58" and higher rated), or the UE60H7090 (60" and higher rated) both from Samsung or the NEC MultiSync E585 (£1,480.90) (58" and higher rated).
