What is the best 55-58 inch television?

There may be some great offers during this period, so keep an eye out for them in the coming weeks.

The Consumers' Association tests TVs all year round for, among other things, image and sound quality, ease of use and energy consumption.

A total of 173 televisions have been tested that are available.

Manufacturers often come onto the market with new models during this period.

These are purchased and tested as quickly as possible, but that takes time.

It is therefore possible that you will find new models in the shops that have not yet been tested.

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 being tested are store bought so they are not pre-manipulated by manufacturers.

New models are tested as soon as possible after introduction.

How fast that is varies 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 value for money.
