Reasons For

8 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 49UH850 is 3D, but the Philips 49PUT4900 is not 3D. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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

60% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 24W higher than the Philips 49PUT4900 (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.

Internet TV Edit
The LG 49UH850 supports internet TV, however the Philips 49PUT4900 does not. Read more

Internet TVs allow you to access the internet directly through your TV. Connect your TV to your local network though WiFi or an ethernet cable.

Internet TVs let you watch movies and TV on the internet by connecting directly to services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube without a computer.

Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 49UH850 supports Wi-Fi, but the Philips 49PUT4900 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.

A wifi connection means that connecting your TV to the net will be easier and can be done without cables.

Ethernet port Edit
The LG 49UH850 has an ethernet port, whereas the Philips 49PUT4900 does not have an ethernet port. 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.

Thinner Edit
The LG 49UH850 has a depth of 51.5mm. That's 27.5mm thinner than the Philips 49PUT4900 (79mm). 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.

Better selling
The LG 49UH850 ranks No. 49523 by number of sales, whereas the Philips 49PUT4900 ranks No. 533923.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49UH850 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Philips 49PUT4900 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 49PUT4900 is a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the LG 49UH850 (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.

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

13% cheaper to run
The Philips 49PUT4900 only costs £120.01 to run over five years but the LG 49UH850 costs £137.64 to run (15% more). Read more
