55 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 55 inch TV.

We compared all the other 55" televisions to this TV and we think because of their better review scores, the UE55JU6000 (£906.49), and the UE55JU6510 (£899) both from Samsung or the Sony KD-55SD8505 (£939) are also worth considering.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the Hisense H65M5500 (£947.99) (65" and cheaper); or the Panasonic TX-58DX802B (£1,049) (58" and higher rated), or the LG 60UH770 (£969.99) (60" and higher rated).

Weight & Dimensions

Quite Thin

Comparable spec TVs that have been around for around the same time as this TV have depths of between 17mm and 100mm. With a depth of only 44 millimeters, the Sony KD-55XD8577 has one of the thinner depths amongst 4K and 8K TVs of this age.

We compared this TV to all the other 44mm thick TVs and we think the Philips 55PUS7181 (£999) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a thicker depth then you might want to consider the Samsung UE55JU6410 (£819) (50mm) which is also cheaper.
