Reasons For

No data 10 Reasons For
20% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 43PUT4900 (20W). 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.

Two RF ports Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has two RF ports, however the Philips 43PUT4900 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

A lot lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has an annual energy consumption of 71kWh, whereas the Philips 43PUT4900 is a 96kWh annual energy consumption TV (25kWh higher). 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.

16% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has a thickness of 66.9mm. That's 10.1mm thinner than the Philips 43PUT4900 (66.9mm). 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.
