6 Reasons For

Just Released Three Months Ago

This mid-size TV was released just three months ago, so it is likely to use better technology than some of the older televisions.

Philips Has Good Television Reviews

On average Philips mid-size TVs have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all TVs built by Philips.

Three Point Five Audio in Ports

The 49BDL4050 is a three point five audio in port TV. Most of the other new mid-size TVs only have between one and three audio in ports.

Chart Edit

Very Bright Display Brightness

The display brightness of the 49BDL4050 of 450 candellas per square meter is one of the brightest amongst new mid-size TVs. Across all the recently released TVs the display brightnesses range from 1 cd/m² to 450 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 300 cd/m².

Chart Edit

1080p Video Mode

This television supports a 1080p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode on comparable spec televisions that were launched in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Quite Thin

At only 45.72 millimeters, the 49BDL4050 has a quite thin thickness compared to most of the other latest TVs. The thicknesses of new mid-size TVs range from 7.1mm to 99mm.

If you don't mind having a thicker thickness then you might want to consider the LG 49UX960 (£1,021.25) (51.3mm and cheaper); or the UE49KS7000 (£981.18) (43.4mm and higher rated), or the UE49KS8000 (£1,198.95) (45.2mm and higher rated) both from Samsung.
