13 Reasons Against

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

The 49PFT4001 does not support smart TV features. Most of the other latest similar spec TVs also do not support smart TV features.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The 49PFT4001 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other mid-size TVs that were released in the last 12 months are also not 3D compatible.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Philips 49PFT4001 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other comparable spec TVs that were launched in the last 12 months also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Refresh Rate

The average refresh rate of similar spec TVs that have been available for around the same time as the 49PFT4001 is 120Hz. The 49PFT4001 has a quite slow refresh rate (only 60 hertz) compared to most of the other recently released televisions.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 60Hz refresh rate televisions currently available including the LG 42LF5600[plb_2932448_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a television with a faster refresh rate then you might want to consider the Philips 43HFL2849T[plb_3817581_price] (85Hz), the Hitachi 43HB6T62[plb_3776953_price] (100Hz), or the Samsung UE40F6100[plb_3861128_price] (200Hz).

Chart

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Like most of the other recently released comparable spec TVs, the Philips 49PFT4001 does not feature OLED technology.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with an OLED technology and we think the Samsung HG49EE690[plb_3713298_price] is also worth considering.
