4 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Sharp LC-40LD270E has a display diagonal of 40", but the Philips 32PHK4101 is only a 32" TV (8" 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.

A lot brighter display brightness Edit
The Sharp LC-40LD270E has a display brightness of 300 cd/m², however the Philips 32PHK4101 is only a 200 cd/m² display brightness TV (100 cd/m² dimmer). Read more

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A brighter display means the screen will have a greater capacity for brightness. This can be useful in combating glare from the sun in very bright rooms, or for making the screen visible from further away.

Common interface (CI) slot Edit
The Sharp LC-40LD270E has a common interface (CI) slot, whereas the Philips 32PHK4101 does not have a common interface (CI) slot. 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.

Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Sharp LC-40LD270E has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", whereas the Philips 32PHK4101 has a rating of "A+".
