46 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 46 inches television.

We compared all the other 46" TVs to this television and we think the Samsung UE46H7000 (£929.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Samsung UN48H4005 (48") which also has a higher rating.
