Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Philips 43PUT4900 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Samsung UE40JU6000 (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.

Common interface connection Edit
The Philips 43PUT4900 has a common interface connection, but the Samsung UE40JU6000 does not have a common interface connection. Read more

Higher energy efficiency rating

11 Reasons For
Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6000 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 more processor cores Edit
The number of processor cores on the Samsung UE40JU6000 is four, but the Philips 43PUT4900 only has two processor cores.
7kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE40JU6000 has an annual energy consumption of 89kWh, however the Philips 43PUT4900 is a 96kWh annual energy consumption TV (7kWh higher). Read more
