Reasons For

7 Reasons For
100Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, whereas the Philips 40PFT4200 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz slower). 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.

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

100 cd/m² brighter display brightness Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², whereas the Philips 40PFT4200 is only a 200 cd/m² display brightness TV (100 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.

4W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 40PFT4200 (16W). 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.

13mm thinner Edit
The Philips 32HFL3010 is a 64mm thick TV. That's 13mm thinner than the Philips 40PFT4200 (77mm). 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 Philips 32HFL3010 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, but the Philips 40PFT4200 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.

£38.07 cheaper to run
Over five years the Philips 32HFL3010 only costs £38.68 to run whereas the Philips 40PFT4200 costs £76.75 to run (98% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Philips 32HFL3010 has an energy efficiency rating of "A++", but the Philips 40PFT4200 has a rating of "A+".
1 Reason For
20% larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 40PFT4200 is a 40" TV. That's 8" larger than the Philips 32HFL3010 (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.

Reasons Against
