Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger screen size Edit
The Philips 43PUS6401 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Samsung UE40K5510 (40"). 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.

Three USB 2.0 ports Edit
The number of USB 2.0 ports on the Philips 43PUS6401 is three, but the Samsung UE40K5510 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 43PUS6401 is a four HDMI port TV, whereas the Samsung UE40K5510 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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 43PUS6401 is "A", whereas the rating of the Samsung UE40K5510 is "A".
8 Reasons For
23kWh lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Samsung UE40K5510 has an annual energy consumption of 75kWh, however the Philips 43PUS6401 is a 98kWh annual energy consumption TV (23kWh higher). Read more

40% thinner Edit
Samsung UE40K5510 is 55.1mm thick. That's 21.9mm thinner than the Philips 43PUS6401 (55.1mm). Read more
