Reasons For

5 Reasons For
9% larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 47HFL7009 is a 47" TV. That's 4" larger than the Samsung UE43J5500 (43"). 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.

3D Edit
The Philips 47HFL7009 is a 3D TV, but the Samsung UE43J5500 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.

PC in (D-Sub) port Edit
The Philips 47HFL7009 has a PC in (D-Sub) port, whereas the Samsung UE43J5500 does not. 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. Also known as a VGA Port.

A D-sub port is needed to connect your TV to older devices and computers that use a VGA connection - generally those made before 2000.

Cheaper to run by £22.43
The Philips 47HFL7009 only costs £61.12 to run over five years however the Samsung UE43J5500 costs £83.55 to run (37% more). Read more
Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 47HFL7009 is "A++", whereas the rating of the Samsung UE43J5500 is "A+".
3 Reasons For
Two USB ports Edit
The number of USB ports on the Samsung UE43J5500 is two, but the Philips 47HFL7009 only has one USB port. Read more

This is a measure of the amount of available USB ports on the TV.

More USB ports mean that more peripherals and devices can be plugged into the TV at once.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 features local dimming, however the Philips 47HFL7009 does not feature local dimming. Read more

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Thinner Edit
The Samsung UE43J5500 has a depth of 66.9mm. That's 2.7mm thinner than the Philips 47HFL7009 (66.9mm). 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.
