Reasons For

4 Reasons For
9% larger screen size Edit
The Philips 47HFL7009 is a 47" TV. That's 4" larger than the Samsung UE43J5500 (43"). 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.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 47HFL7009 is a 54kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 17kWh lower than the Samsung UE43J5500 (71kWh). 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.

Cheaper to run by £22.43
The Philips 47HFL7009 only costs £61.12 to run over five years however the Samsung UE43J5500 costs £83.55 to run (37% more). Read more

6 Reasons For
One more USB 2.0 port Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Samsung UE43J5500 is two, but the Philips 47HFL7009 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 features local dimming, however the Philips 47HFL7009 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Thinner Edit

12 shops are selling it
