The Philips 32PFH5300 is £12.82 cheaper to run than the Toshiba 40L2436 over five years. Read more
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 32PFH5300 is "A+", however the rating of the Toshiba 40L2436 is "A+".
5 Reasons For
20% larger display diagonal Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 is a 40" TV. That's 8" larger than the Philips 32PFH5300 (40"). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 has an RMS rated power of 14W, whereas the Philips 32PFH5300 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (4W lower). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

10mm thinner Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 is a 67mm thick TV, whereas the Philips 32PFH5300 is a 77mm thick TV (10mm thicker). 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Toshiba 40L2436 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the Philips 32PFH5300 does not have a PC in (D-Sub) port. Read more

The socket (port) to receive input from a PC via a D-sub, which is a connector with a characteristic D-shaped metal shield. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Toshiba 40L2436 is "A+", but the rating of the Philips 32PFH5300 is "A+".
