65 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 65 inch TV.

We compared this TV to all the other 65" TVs and we think the Sony KD-65X9005 (£849.99), and the LG 65UF778 which both 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 Samsung UE70KU6079 (70" and higher rated), the LG 70UH700 (£1,890) (70" and higher rated), or the Sony KD-75XD9405 (£2,999) (75" and higher rated).
