Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 49PUS6501 is a 49" TV. That's 6" larger than the Samsung UE43KS7500 (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.

Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 49PUS6501 is a 1,800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 1,600Hz faster than the Samsung UE43KS7500 (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.

Slightly thinner Edit
The Philips 49PUS6501 has a depth of 79mm, however the Samsung UE43KS7500 is an 83.1mm thick TV (4.1mm thicker). 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.

£39 cheaper
The Philips 49PUS6501 is £39.03 cheaper than the Samsung UE43KS7500.
5 Reasons For
20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE43KS7500 has an RMS rated power of 40W, whereas the Philips 49PUS6501 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W 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.

Two point one loudspeakers Edit
The number of loudspeakers on the Samsung UE43KS7500 is two point one, but the Philips 49PUS6501 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.
