Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The 40PFH5500 does not feature OLED technology, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that came out around the same time as this TV also do not feature OLED technology.

40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inches television.

We compared this television to all the other 40" TVs and we think the LOEWE Art 40 (£999), and the Samsung UE40J5100 (£229.99) which both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If you want a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the SE42FO02 (£269) (42"), or the SE42FS03 (£299) (42") both from Seiki or the JVC LT-42C571 (42").
