Reasons For

5 Reasons For
9% larger screen size Edit
The Panasonic TX-24C300 is a 24" TV. That's 2" larger than the Philips 22PFK4000 (22"). 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.

50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-24C300 is a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 100Hz faster than the Philips 22PFK4000 (100Hz). 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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Panasonic TX-24C300 is a 27kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 8kWh lower than the Philips 22PFK4000 (35kWh). 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.

Cheaper to run by £8.01
The Panasonic TX-24C300 only costs £33.49 to run over five years however the Philips 22PFK4000 costs £41.50 to run (24% more). Read more

2 Reasons For
75% thinner Edit
Philips 22PFK4000 is 35mm thick. That's 26mm thinner than the Panasonic TX-24C300 (35mm). 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.

1.2kg lighter Edit
The Philips 22PFK4000 is a 2.6kg heavy TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-24C300 is a 3.8kg heavy TV (1.2kg heavier). Read more
