48 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 48 inch TV.

We compared all the other 48" TVs to this TV and we think because of their better review scores, the UE48H6800, and the UE48J5600 both from Samsung are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Philips 49BDL4050 (£883.81) (48.5"), or the Grundig 49 VLE 5523 (£521.99) (49").
