Reasons For

7 Reasons For
1,000Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,400Hz, but the Philips 49PUH4900 is only a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,000Hz 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.

Higher RMS rated power Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 is a 20W RMS rated power TV. That's 4W higher than the Philips 49PUH4900 (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.

Smart TV Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 supports Smart TV, however the Philips 49PUH4900 does not support Smart TV.
Internet TV Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 supports internet TV, but the Philips 49PUH4900 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.

Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified, but the Philips 49PUH4900 does not have a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified.
Thinner Edit
Panasonic TX-40DX700 is 40mm thick. That's 39mm thinner than the Philips 49PUH4900 (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.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a common interface (CI) slot, however the Philips 49PUH4900 does not. 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
9" larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 49PUH4900 has a display diagonal of 49", whereas the Panasonic TX-40DX700 is only a 40" TV (9" 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.

13% cheaper to run
Over five years the Philips 49PUH4900 only costs £120.01 to run but the Panasonic TX-40DX700 costs £137.64 to run (15% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Philips 49PUH4900 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Panasonic TX-40DX700 has a rating of "B".
