50 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 50 inches television.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 50" TVs currently available including because of their better review scores, the LG 50LB650, or the Sony KDL-50W828.

If you want a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Samsung UN55H6400 (54.6") which also has a higher rating.
