40" back-lit IPS options

Hi all.

I'm looking for a replacement TV for our lounge. It's not the main movie watching room, so it's really just for 'casual' TV watching, so it doesn't have to be amazing, but I would like it not to have any glaring flaws. I used to have a 40" Samsung and I took the opportunity to swap this for a 46" Samsung that my mate had going (I forget both model numbers), but have since realised that the 46" is a bit too big for where we have it in the room, so I'm looking to go back to a 40" and I'm finding that there seems to be a distinct lack of options at that size.

I did have my eye on the Panasonic 40HX800, but having just read the review of its bigger brother I'm thinking again, as that seems to tick all the boxes for what Its bound to annoy me, even in a secondary screen - highly reflective screen, poor viewing angles, screen uniformity issues!

Does anyone know of any 40" screens which are IPS panels and back-lit? or even just any other 40" option around at the moment?

Thanks.

I don't know 40 inch but most LG 43 inch Tvs should be ips.

Thanks, I'd like to go for an LG as I really like the smart interface, but i really want to try to keep it to 40" and they don't seem to do that size any more.

How is it possible to find out what type of panel (i.e. IPS or VA) and what type of backlight that an LCD TV uses?

I’ve found that Sharp offer a 40” screen size, but as far as I can tell from their website they don’t say anywhere what sort of panel or backlight any of the models use.
