55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inches television.

We compared all the other 55" televisions to this TV and we think the Samsung UE55H7090, and the Sony KDL-55W829 (£699.99) which both of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this TV display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the NEC MultiSync E585 (£1,480.90) (58"), or the LG 65LX341 (£1,273.97) (64.53").
