Reasons For

5 Reasons For
9" larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 49PUK4900 is a 49" TV. That's 9" larger than the Sony KDL-40WD653 (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.

17% faster high frequency rate Edit
The Philips 49PUK4900 has a high frequency rate of 60Hz. That's 10Hz faster than the Sony KDL-40WD653 (50Hz). Read more

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

50% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 49PUK4900 is a 400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 200Hz faster than the Sony KDL-40WD653 (200Hz). 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.

A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 49PUK4900 has an RMS rated power of 16W, but the Sony KDL-40WD653 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (6W lower). 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.

DVI port Edit
The Philips 49PUK4900 has a DVI port, however the Sony KDL-40WD653 does not have a DVI port.
5 Reasons For
Wi-Fi Edit
The Sony KDL-40WD653 supports Wi-Fi, but the Philips 49PUK4900 does not. 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 Sony KDL-40WD653 has an ethernet port, whereas the Philips 49PUK4900 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.

20% thinner Edit
The Sony KDL-40WD653 has a depth of 66mm. That's 13mm thinner than the Philips 49PUK4900 (66mm). 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.

Cheaper to run by £40.06
Over five years the Sony KDL-40WD653 is £40.06 cheaper to run than the Philips 49PUK4900. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sony KDL-40WD653 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Philips 49PUK4900 has a rating of "A".
