Over five years the Philips 32PFT5300 is £20.83 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE32J5500. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Philips 32PFT5300 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the Samsung UE32J5500 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 is a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Philips 32PFT5300 (400Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

10W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Philips 32PFT5300 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W 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.

16% thinner Edit
The Samsung UE32J5500 has a depth of 66.6mm, however the Philips 32PFT5300 is a 77mm thick TV (10.4mm 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.
