Reasons For

8 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 49UH850 is 3D, but the Philips 49PUT4900 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.

Internet TV Edit
The LG 49UH850 has an 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.

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.

Two RF ports quantitys Edit
The LG 49UH850 has two RF ports quantitys, however the Philips 49PUT4900 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more

RF stands for Radio Frequency and an RF port is an older type of input connector for TVs which is most commonly use for connecting cable TV and satellite TV feeds directly to the TV.

Multiple RF ports will allow you to connect multiple RF feeds to the TV at the same time. For example, if the TV has a built in satellite TV decoder then you could connect 2 different satellite dishes to the TV.

Wi-Fi Edit
The LG 49UH850 has a wi-Fi, but the Philips 49PUT4900 does not have a 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 LAN Edit
The LG 49UH850 has an ethernet LAN, whereas the Philips 49PUT4900 does not have an ethernet LAN.
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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The LG 49UH850 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Philips 49PUT4900 has a rating of "A".
5 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. 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.

17% lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 49PUT4900 is a 106kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 17kWh lower than the LG 49UH850 (106kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

Lighter Edit
The Philips 49PUT4900 is an 11.5kg heavy TV. That's 4.3kg lighter than the LG 49UH850 (11.5kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

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
Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 49PUT4900 is "A", however the rating of the LG 49UH850 is "A".

Reasons Against
