Reasons For

3 Reasons For
1,000Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,400Hz, but the Philips 49PUH4900 is only a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,000Hz 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 49PUH4900 (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.

Thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-40DX700 is 40mm thick. That's 39mm thinner than the Philips 49PUH4900 (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.

4 Reasons For
9" larger screen size Edit
The Philips 49PUH4900 has a screen size of 49", whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is only a 40" TV (9" 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.

11% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 49PUH4900 has an annual energy consumption of 106kWh, however the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 117kWh annual energy consumption TV (11kWh 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.

13% cheaper to run
Over five years the Philips 49PUH4900 only costs £120.01 to run but the Panasonic TX-40DX700 costs £137.64 to run (15% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Philips 49PUH4900 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a rating of "B".

Reasons Against

4 Reasons Against
9" smaller screen size Edit

Marginally higher annual energy consumption Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has an annual energy consumption of 117kWh, however the Philips 49PUH4900 is a 106kWh annual energy consumption TV (11kWh lower). 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.

£17.63 more expensive to run over five years
Over five years the Panasonic TX-40DX700 costs £137.64 to run which is £17.63 more to run than the Philips 49PUH4900. Show assumptions.
Lower energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is "B", however the rating of the Philips 49PUH4900 is "A".
5 Reasons Against
Three times slower motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 49PUH4900 has a motion interpolation frequency of 400Hz, but the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 1,400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,000Hz faster). Read more
