Although the common belief is that bigger is better, this isn’t by no means the rule, and a TV that’s under 50 inches is still a great TV. Whether you’re after a screen for your living room, bedroom, or even kitchen, manufacturers put just as much, if not more, expertise into designing mid-size and smaller models, ensuring that TVs below 50 inches qualify as superb options.
