Top 5 Most Popular 40 Inch TVs Reviewed – The Best of June, 2019

High Quality & Compact Screen Sizes For Extra Convenience

A 40 inch TV is ideal if you’re living in a condo or simply want to use your space economically. These “medium” sized screens give you all of the same viewing pleasure as a larger screen size, without taking up precious space in your home. They’re also perfect for the bedroom, allowing you to lie back and watch your favorite shows in comfort.

The good news? A smaller screen size doesn’t mean you’ll have to compromise on the technical specifications. In fact, the models in our review offer outstanding OLED screen quality, rich audio and a host of smart features. They’ll also blend into your rooms seamlessly – without taking too much attention away from the rest of your decor.

So with all that said, which 40 inch TV’s made the grade this year?
