Reasons For

2 Reasons For
45mm thinner Edit
The Panasonic TX-50DX750 is a 40mm thick TV, whereas the Philips 55PUT6401 is an 85mm thick TV (45mm thicker). 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.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Panasonic TX-50DX750 is "A", but the rating of the Philips 55PUT6401 is "A".
5 Reasons For
10% larger screen size Edit
The Philips 55PUT6401 is a 55" TV. That's 5" larger than the Panasonic TX-50DX750 (55"). 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.

Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Philips 55PUT6401 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-50DX750 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

One more HDMI port Edit
The Philips 55PUT6401 has four HDMI ports, however the Panasonic TX-50DX750 only has three HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

6% cheaper to run
The Philips 55PUT6401 only costs £147.65 to run over five years but the Panasonic TX-50DX750 costs £156.87 to run (6% more). Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 55PUT6401 is "A", however the rating of the Panasonic TX-50DX750 is "A".
