Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Philips 32PFH5300 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Toshiba 40L2436 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

29% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 32PFH5300 is a 42kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 12kWh lower than the Toshiba 40L2436 (54kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

5kg lighter Edit
The Philips 32PFH5300 is a 5kg heavy TV. That's 5kg lighter than the Toshiba 40L2436 (10kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

21% cheaper to run
The Philips 32PFH5300 is £12.82 cheaper to run than the Toshiba 40L2436 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 32PFH5300 is "A+", however the rating of the Toshiba 40L2436 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
20% larger screen size Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 is a 40" TV. That's 8" larger than the Philips 32PFH5300 (40"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 has an RMS rated power of 14W, whereas the Philips 32PFH5300 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (4W lower). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

PC in port Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 has a PC in port, but the Philips 32PFH5300 does not have a PC in port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield.

10mm thinner Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 is a 67mm thick TV, whereas the Philips 32PFH5300 is a 77mm thick TV (10mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Toshiba 40L2436 is "A+", but the rating of the Philips 32PFH5300 is "A+".
