Reasons For

9 Reasons For
100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, whereas the Philips 40PFT4200 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.

80 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a display brightness of 280 cd/m², whereas the Philips 40PFT4200 is only a 200 cd/m² display brightness TV (80 cd/m² dimmer).

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 40PFT4200 (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.

PC in port Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a PC in port, but the Philips 40PFT4200 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.

Hugely lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has an annual energy consumption of 34kWh, but the Philips 40PFT4200 is a 67kWh annual energy consumption TV (33kWh 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.

Vastly lighter Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a weight of 5kg, however the Philips 40PFT4200 is an 8.8kg heavy TV (3.8kg heavier). Read more

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Philips 32HFL3010 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", but the Philips 40PFT4200 has a rating of "A+".
1 Reason For
20% larger screen size Edit
The Philips 40PFT4200 is a 40" TV. That's 8" larger than the Philips 32HFL3010 (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.
