40 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 40 inch TV.

We compared all the other 40" TVs to this TV and we think the UE40HU6900, and the UE40JU6740 both from Samsung or the LG 40UF671 which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this Samsung TV display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the TechniSat TechniTwin ISIO 42 (42" and higher rated), the Panasonic TX-43CXW754 (43" and higher rated), or the LG 43UF640 (43" and higher rated).
