Best 42 to 43 inch TV – Top 5 Picks in 2019

When buying a TV, especially in the 42 inch to 43-inch range, it can be challenging to find exactly what you are looking for. TVs in this size range tend to be very popular, so there are a lot of options out there, both good and buy. Some people tend to go for the cheapest option, which isn’t always a good idea. But shelling out extra cash for that name brand doesn’t always mean you’re getting quality, either.
