Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 28MT47 has a display diagonal of 28", but the Philips 22PFT4000 is only a 22" TV (6" smaller). 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.

20% brighter display brightness Edit
The LG 28MT47 has a display brightness of 250 cd/m², however the Philips 22PFT4000 is only a 200 cd/m² display brightness TV (50 cd/m² dimmer). Read more

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A brighter display means the screen will have a greater capacity for brightness. This can be useful in combating glare from the sun in very bright rooms, or for making the screen visible from further away.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 28MT47 is a 10W RMS rated power TV. That's 5W higher than the Philips 22PFT4000 (5W). 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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The LG 28MT47 has a common interface (CI) slot, whereas the Philips 22PFT4000 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. Read more

A common interface slot provides compatibility with pay-per-view cards.

A common interface slot allows you to install pay per view cards. For example Sky TV sell pay per cards for watching football and boxing and WWE Network sell cards for watching wrestling.

3 Reasons For
Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) Edit
The Philips 22PFT4000 has an Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), whereas the LG 28MT47 does not have an Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). Read more

An Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is an application on your TV that lists current and upcoming programs for all channels, and a short summary or commentary for each program.

An EPG is extremely helpful to be able to see what programs are coming up that you may want to watch, and plan your viewing accordingly. They also work in tandem with recording software to set up automatic recording of programs.

Hugely thinner Edit
Philips 22PFT4000 is 35mm thick, but the LG 28MT47 is a 57mm thick TV (22mm 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.

30% cheaper to run
The Philips 22PFT4000 is £17.62 cheaper to run than the LG 28MT47 over five years. Read more
