50 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 50 inch TV.

We compared all the other 50" televisions to this TV and we think because of their better review scores, the LG 50LB650, and the Samsung UE50H6200 (£499.98) are also worth considering.

If you are looking for a TV with a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Samsung UN55H6400 (54.6") which also has a higher rating.
