28 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 28 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 28" televisions and we think a cheaper TV such as the Cello C28227 (£119.99) or you might consider a higher rated TV such as the Grundig 28 VLE 5500 (£228.74) are also worth considering.

If you want a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the JVC LT-32C360 (£169.98) (31.5" and cheaper), or the LG 32LF5610 (£174.99) (32" and cheaper).
