48 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 48 inches television.

We compared this television to all the other 48" TVs and we think the UE48J6300 (£499), the UE48J5500 (£349), and the UE48J5100 (£369) all from Samsung which all 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 consider the Hisense H49M2600 (£379) (49" and cheaper), or the LG 49LF5100 (£379.98) (49" and cheaper); or the LG 49LH541 (£345) (49" and higher rated).
