What is the best 46 to 50 inch television?

And which one has the best price-quality ratio?

NU.nl and the Consumers' Association provide an answer.

We spend a lot of time at home this period.

Netflixing is popular.

You enjoy your favorite series the most with a good TV that is neither too small or too big.

The correct size depends on the distance between your TV and the sofa.

Are you about 3 meters away?

Then a TV of 46 to 50 inches is a good size.

Throughout the year, the Consumers' Association tests TVs of various sizes for, among other things, image and sound quality, ease of use and energy consumption.

A total of 225 televisions have now been tested and are widely available.

Of the 38 TVs tested in the 46 to 50-inch category, an LG model is the Best in the Test.

A TV from Samsung is the Best Buy.

This 4K television is the first OLED TV from LG that is smaller than 55 inches.

The image quality of the smaller OLED screen is very good and is comparable to that of larger OLED TVs.

The colors are natural and balanced, and the contrast is also fine.

The viewing angle is also acceptable, although it is a bit smaller than that of its bigger brothers.

The sound is clear and pleasant.

However, the low tones are a bit weak.

You can easily solve that with the purchase of a good soundbar.

Furthermore, the TV has 4 HDMI connections and 3 USB ports.

Even though the standard 'out-of-the-box' image quality is already good, it can be even better by adjusting the image settings slightly.

This 4K model from Samsung is a lot cheaper to buy and has the best price-quality ratio.

The picture quality is okay.

The image is sharp and the colors are more than sufficient.

The contrast is also good.

The TV has 2 HDMI connections and 1 USB port.

The sound is clear and rich.

It can sometimes sound a bit shrill.

The standard picture settings are not optimal with this model.

You can adjust it for a better result.

In addition, the TV is not very energy efficient.

In this column we write weekly about household and technological appliances that have been tested by the Consumers' Association.

This is a collaboration between the independent editors of NU.nl and the Consumers' Association.

The Consumers' Association tests thousands of products every year, together with qualified technicians in specialized laboratories at home and abroad.

The products under test are bought in the store so that they are not pre-manipulated by manufacturers.

New models are tested as soon as possible after introduction.

How fast that is differs per product.

The Best in Test is the product with the best test rating.

This can also be a somewhat older model, because a newer model is not always better.

The Best Buy is the product with the best price-quality ratio.
