Reasons For

3 Reasons For
6" larger screen size Edit
The Philips 49PUS7101 has a screen size of 49", whereas the Sony KD-43X8307 is only a 43" TV (6" 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 49PUS7101 is a 30W RMS rated power TV. That's 10W higher than the Sony KD-43X8307 (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.

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Philips 49PUS7101 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Sony KD-43X8307 has a rating of "A".
7 Reasons For
30kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 has an annual energy consumption of 100kWh, whereas the Philips 49PUS7101 is a 130kWh annual energy consumption TV (30kWh 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.

2% thinner Edit
The Sony KD-43X8307 has a thickness of 60mm. That's 1mm thinner than the Philips 49PUS7101 (60mm). 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.

Lighter Edit
Sony KD-43X8307 is 11.8kg heavy, but the Philips 49PUS7101 is a 14.5kg heavy TV (2.7kg heavier). Read more
