Reasons For

1 Reason For
4.6kg lighter Edit
The Hisense H40M2600 is a 6.4kg heavy TV, whereas the Philips 49PFS5501 is an 11kg heavy TV (4.6kg heavier). 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.

6 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 has a display diagonal of 49", but the Hisense H40M2600 is only a 40" TV (9" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

13% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 is a 16W RMS rated power TV. That's 2W higher than the Hisense H40M2600 (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.

DVI port Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 has a DVI port, whereas the Hisense H40M2600 does not have a DVI port.
Four HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 is a four HDMI ports quantity TV, whereas the Hisense H40M2600 only has two HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

Significantly lower annual energy consumption Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 has an annual energy consumption of 57kWh, whereas the Hisense H40M2600 is a 102.2kWh annual energy consumption TV (45.2kWh higher). 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.

Thinner Edit
The Philips 49PFS5501 has a depth of 79mm. That's 2mm thinner than the Hisense H40M2600 (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.

Reasons Against
