Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 43PUS6401 is a 43" TV. That's 3" larger than the Samsung UE40K5510 (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.

Superior energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 43PUS6401 is "A", whereas the rating of the Samsung UE40K5510 is "A".
User reviews are significantly better
Based on 410 user reviews, the Philips 43PUS6401 has an average review score of 91%, whereas the Samsung UE40K5510 has an average rating of 68% (based on 12 reviews).
9 Reasons For
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified Edit
The Samsung UE40K5510 is a Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified TV, but the Philips 43PUS6401 is not Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified. Read more

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a system that allows various computer technology products - from TVs to phones to games consoles - to all share data and media with each other over a home network, with a minimum of compatibility issues.

A DLNA-certified TV will be able to receive, transfer & stream media from a wide variety of tech in your home, making sharing of media between devices far easier and more streamlined.

Wi-Fi Direct Edit
The Samsung UE40K5510 supports Wi-Fi Direct, but the Philips 43PUS6401 does not support Wi-Fi Direct. Read more

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

40% thinner Edit
Samsung UE40K5510 is 55.1mm thick. That's 21.9mm thinner than the Philips 43PUS6401 (55.1mm). 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.
