40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared all the other 40" TVs to this television and we think because of their better review scores, the UE40JU6400 (£507), and the UE40JU6510 (£599) both from Samsung are also worth considering.

If this TV display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the KD-43XD8088 (£619) (43" and higher rated), or the KD-43X8307 (£599) (43" and higher rated) both from Sony or the LG 43UH661 (£359.99) (43" and higher rated).
