Reasons For

6 Reasons For
60% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 24W higher than the Philips 49PUT4900 (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.

Two RF ports Edit
The LG 49UH850 has two RF ports, however the Philips 49PUT4900 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.

Thinner Edit
The LG 49UH850 has a thickness of 51.5mm. That's 27.5mm thinner than the Philips 49PUT4900 (79mm). 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.

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.

3 shops are selling it
A greater number of sellers increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Better selling

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49UH850 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Philips 49PUT4900 has a rating of "A".
6 Reasons For
50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 49PUT4900 is a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the LG 49UH850 (400Hz). 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.

17% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 49PUT4900 is a 106kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 17kWh lower than the LG 49UH850 (106kWh). 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.

Lighter Edit
The Philips 49PUT4900 is an 11.5kg heavy TV. That's 4.3kg lighter than the LG 49UH850 (11.5kg). Read more
