The diagonal size of a TV is used to measure it, so a 50-inch, 16:9 screen is about 25 inches tall and 44 inches wide. The Samsung EH5000 LED TV is a popular model that is 44.8 inches wide, 26.4 inches high, and 3.7 inches deep. The size of the TV from the outside varies slightly between brands and models.
When choosing a TV size, you should think about both how much space it takes up and how far away you want to sit to watch it. Digital Trends says that a 50-inch screen is best for viewing from 6.25 feet to 12.5 feet away.
James P. Mitchell invented the world’s first LED flat panel TV screen in 1977. However, LED TVs didn’t become available to the general public until the Samsung LN-T4681F came out in 2007.
