40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared all the other 40" televisions to this television and we think the LOEWE Art 40 (£999), and the Philips 40PFT6510 which both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this Philips television display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the SE42FO02 (£269) (42"), or the SE42FS03 (£299) (42") both from Seiki.
