Reasons For

4 Reasons For
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 49PUS7101 has an RMS rated power of 30W, but the Samsung UE49KU6470 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (10W lower). 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.

Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Philips 49PUS7101 is a three USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the Samsung UE49KU6470 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 49PUS7101 has four HDMI ports, however the Samsung UE49KU6470 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.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 49PUS7101 is "A", however the rating of the Samsung UE49KU6470 is "A".
8 Reasons For
One more RF port Edit
The number of RF ports on the Samsung UE49KU6470 is two, but the Philips 49PUS7101 only has one RF port. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

6% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE49KU6470 is a 123kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 7kWh lower than the Philips 49PUS7101 (123kWh). 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.

Thinner Edit
Samsung UE49KU6470 is 55.2mm thick, but the Philips 49PUS7101 is a 61mm thick TV (5.8mm 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.

1% lighter Edit
The Samsung UE49KU6470 is a 14.4kg heavy TV. That's 100g lighter than the Philips 49PUS7101 (14.4kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

£120 cheaper
The Samsung UE49KU6470 costs £120 less than the Philips 49PUS7101.
Available from 2 shops
A greater number of retailers increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
1% cheaper to run
The Samsung UE49KU6470 is £1.83 cheaper to run than the Philips 49PUS7101 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung UE49KU6470 is "A", however the rating of the Philips 49PUS7101 is "A".
