40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inches television.

We compared this TV to all the other 40" TVs and we think because of its better review score, the Samsung UE40C8000XWXXC is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the 42LF652 (£398.99) (42" and higher rated), the 42LB580 (£309) (42" and higher rated), or the 42LB730 (42" and higher rated) all from LG.
