Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Slightly larger screen size Edit
The Changhong LED50D3000 has a screen size of 49.5", but the Philips 49PFS5501 is only a 49" TV (0.5" 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.

200g lighter Edit
Changhong LED50D3000 is 10.8kg heavy, but the Philips 49PFS5501 is an 11kg heavy TV (200g heavier). 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.

5 Reasons For
20 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², however the Changhong LED50D3000 is only a 280 cd/m² display brightness TV (20 cd/m² dimmer).
Four HDMI ports Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Changhong LED50D3000 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.

Two times lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 has an annual energy consumption of 57kWh, whereas the Changhong LED50D3000 is a 117kWh annual energy consumption TV (60kWh 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.

12% thinner Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 has a thickness of 79mm. That's 8.9mm thinner than the Changhong LED50D3000 (79mm). 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Philips 49PFS5501 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", whereas the Changhong LED50D3000 has a rating of "A".
