48 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 48 inches television.

We compared all the other 48" televisions to this television and we think the Panasonic TX-48AS640 (£509.79) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the LG 49LF6309 (49") which is also higher rated.
