55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inch TV.

We compared all the other 55" televisions to this television and we think the KD-55XD9305 (£699.99), and the KD-55X8005 (£739.99) both from Sony which and both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this Philips TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the LG 58UH635 (£580) (58" and higher rated) or the Samsung UE60KU6020 (£599.99) (60" and cheaper).
