Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 43LX341 is a 42.8" TV. That's 2.8" larger than the Philips 40PFT6510 (40"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

15% thinner Edit
The LG 43LX341 has a depth of 55.88mm, however the Philips 40PFT6510 is a 64mm thick TV (8.12mm 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 LG 43LX341 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, whereas the Philips 40PFT6510 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.

4 Reasons For
3D Edit
The Philips 40PFT6510 is a 3D TV, whereas the LG 43LX341 is not 3D. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

35% brighter display brightness Edit
The Philips 40PFT6510 is a 350 cd/m² display brightness TV. That's 120 cd/m² brighter than the LG 43LX341 (350 cd/m²).
Wi-Fi Edit
The Philips 40PFT6510 supports Wi-Fi, whereas the LG 43LX341 does not support Wi-Fi. Read more

A Wifi (wireless LAN connection) on your TV means that you can connect your TV directly to your WiFi network.

Connecting your TV will be easier and you will not need any cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The Philips 40PFT6510 has an ethernet port, however the LG 43LX341 does not. Read more

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.
