55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inch TV.

We compared all the other 55" televisions to this TV and we think because of their better review scores, the LG 55EF9509, and the Samsung UE55JS8502 are also worth considering.

If this Philips television display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic TX-58DX800 (58" and higher rated), or the LG 58UH635 (58" and higher rated).
