46 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 46 inches television.

We compared this TV to all the other 46" TVs and we think the Sony KDL-46HX920, the Samsung UE46D7000LS, and the Philips 46PDL8908 which all of have better reviews are also worth considering.

If this television display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to look at the 47LB670 (47" and higher rated), or the 47LB5610 (47" and higher rated) both from LG or the Philips 47PFL3188 (£379.99) (47" and higher rated).
