Reasons For

11 Reasons For
100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, whereas the Sony KDL-40R453 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Smart TV features Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 supports smart TV features, but the Sony KDL-40R453 does not support smart TV features. Read more

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Sony KDL-40R453 (16W). 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.

Common interface plus Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 supports common interface plus, whereas the Sony KDL-40R453 does not support common interface plus.
PC in port Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a PC in port, but the Sony KDL-40R453 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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has an annual energy consumption of 34kWh, but the Sony KDL-40R453 is an 85kWh annual energy consumption TV (51kWh 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.

12mm thinner Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 is a 77mm thick TV. That's 12mm thinner than the Sony KDL-40R453 (89mm). Read more

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.

A lot lighter Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a weight of 5kg, however the Sony KDL-40R453 is a 7kg heavy TV (2kg heavier). 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.

The Philips 32HFL3010 costs £248.02, whereas the Sony KDL-40R453 is £249.00.
£57.00 cheaper to run
Over five years the Philips 32HFL3010 only costs £38.68 to run whereas the Sony KDL-40R453 costs £95.68 to run (147% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Philips 32HFL3010 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", but the Sony KDL-40R453 has a rating of "A".
2 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Sony KDL-40R453 has a screen size of 40", but the Philips 32HFL3010 is only a 32" TV (8" smaller). 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.
