Best 44 50 inch TV in UK – 5 Top Picks in 2019

Even the most careful and prudent buyers can find the process of shopping for a new TV an overwhelming one. I almost always find that manufacturers tend to offer ambiguous, overly technical specifications, retailers suggest deals with confusing terms, and salesmen can be brash and presumptuous in desperate pursuit of a larger commission. Using online buying guides or seeking the advice of your friends while standing beside the office water cooler often only adds to your confusion.

At the end of the day, only you can truly decide which television is the right one for you and your household.

However, there are some rules of thumb that will assist you as you begin to endeavour your television purchase. One question to ask yourself is, “What will I be using the TV for?” For example, if you’re a frequent gamer, you will want to look for TVs that feature high contrast and color saturation accuracy in their picture quality, but if you’re looking for your main living room’s TV, you should be cognizant that a matte screen is often hailed as the best way to reduce reflections and glare in a brightly lit room.

So to help you cut through much if the red tape, here are our top 5 recommendations based on price, features, quality, and technology.
