This is a 49 inches television.

We compared all the other 49" TVs to this TV and we think the Samsung UE49K5600 (£399.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Samsung UE50J6240 (£379) (50" and cheaper), or the Cello C50ANSMT (50" and cheaper).
