40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 40" TVs currently available including the LOEWE Art 40 (£999), the Telefunken TE40282B34C2H, or the Panasonic TX-40CW304 which all of have better reviews.

If this television display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the SE42FO02 (£269) (42" and higher rated), or the SE42FS03 (£269) (42" and higher rated) both from Seiki or the JVC LT-42C571 (£269) (42" and higher rated).
