This television supports an MP3 audio format, which is the most frequently supported audio format supported by TVs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 40PFK4009.

10 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a WiFi Connection
Most TVs that are a comparable age to the 40PFK4009 do not have a WiFi connection. The Philips 40PFK4009 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.
Like most of the other TVs of a similar type and age to the 40PFK4009, the 40PFK4009 does not support smart TV features.
We compared all the other TVs which also support smart TV features to this television and we think the Samsung UE40H6700 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
Not 3D Compatible
The Philips 40PFK4009 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a TV that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the LG 42LW579, or the Samsung UE40H6470 which is also higher rated.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The 40PFK4009 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other TVs of this age and type also do not have a built-in camera.
There are a number of other TVs which also have a built-in camera that you might want to look at including the UE46ES8000, the UN46ES8000, or the UE40F7000 all from Samsung which is also higher rated.
