49 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 49 inch TV.

We compared all the other 49" televisions to this TV and we think the Samsung UE49KU6670 (£520) which is cheaper; or the UE49KS7500 (£749), and the UN49KU6500 both from Samsung and both of which have better reviews are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the UN50KU6000 (£480) (50" and cheaper), or the UA50KU6000 (£480) (50" and cheaper) both from Samsung or the Hisense H50M5500 (£499) (50" and cheaper).
