Reasons For

3 Reasons For
2% larger screen size Edit
The Changhong LED50D3000 is a 49.5" TV. That's 0.5" larger than the Philips 49HFL2839 (49"). 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.

Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Changhong LED50D3000 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Philips 49HFL2839 only has one USB 2.0 port. 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 Changhong LED50D3000 has three HDMI ports, however the Philips 49HFL2839 only has two 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 Reasons For
50 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The Philips 49HFL2839 has a display brightness of 330 cd/m², whereas the Changhong LED50D3000 is only a 280 cd/m² display brightness TV (50 cd/m² dimmer).
46kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 49HFL2839 has an annual energy consumption of 71kWh, but the Changhong LED50D3000 is a 117kWh annual energy consumption TV (46kWh higher). Read more
