40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 40" televisions and we think because of its better review score, the LOEWE Art 40 (£999) is also worth considering.

If you want a television with a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the SE42FS03 (£299) (42"), or the SE42FO02 (£269) (42") both from Seiki or the JVC LT-42C571 (£269) (42").
