Multiple reviews mentioned that Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has terrific user reviews with 89% of buyers recommending this television to others.

11 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100

Larger Display Diagonal

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a display diagonal of 55 (as do the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300), but the LG 43UM7500 is only a 43" TV (12" smaller). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

90% Thinner

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a thickness of 26.1, and so does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300. That's 60.3mm thinner than the LG 43UM7500 (86.4mm), 233.9mm thinner than the LG 55UM7400PLB (260mm) and 52.1mm thinner than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 (78.2mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Higher RMS Rated Power

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300. That's 10W higher than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 (10W). 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.

Local Dimming

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 features local dimming, however the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not. 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.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 supports Digital Clean View, and so does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300, whereas the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 do not. More ...

'Digital Clean View' is a function on Smart TVs that reduced the noise from low-quality signals.

Using Digital Clean View can drastically improve the picture quality on both analogue and digital signals by removing as much noise and blurring as possible from the picture.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300), however the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 do not support this feature. 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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, whereas the LG 43UM7500 scored 86, the LG 55UM7400PLB scored 87, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 scored 86 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 scored 87.

Cheaper by £35

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is £35.43 cheaper than the LG 43UM7500, £199.99 cheaper than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and £50 cheaper than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300.

More Customers Recommend It

77.5% of 4,452 customers recommend the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, but only 50% of 4 customers recommend the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and only 47.2% of 443 customers recommend the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300.

Better Brand

Samsung TVs have an average rating of 95%, but LG only has an average rating of 93.7% and Philips only has an average rating of 86.7%.

Better At Producing a High Quality Picture

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 was better at producing a high quality picture. Several people thought that the Samsung UE55RU7100 had brilliant picture quality and had a good screen.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100

200Hz Slower High Frequency Rate

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is a 1 refresh rate TV, whereas the LG 43UM7500 is a 50Hz refresh rate TV (1,350Hz slower) and the LG 55UM7400PLB is a 1,600Hz refresh rate TV (200Hz faster). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Vastly Slower Motion Interpolation Frequency

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1, however the LG 43UM7500 and the LG 55UM7400PLB are both 1,600Hz motion interpolation frequency TVs (200Hz faster). 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.

Fewer Sellers

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is only stocked by 8 shops, but the LG 43UM7500 is stocked by 9 retailers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by 10 Months

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is six months older than the LG 43UM7500, 10 months older than the LG 55UM7400PLB and two months older than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by £53

Over five years the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 costs £150 to run which is £53 more than the LG 43UM7500 and £27 more than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412. Show assumptions.

Shorter Manufacturer's Guarantee by One Month Years

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 comes with a one year manufacturer's guarantee, whereas the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 has a one year guarantee.

Worse Energy Efficiency Rating

The energy efficiency rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is "A", whereas the rating of the LG 43UM7500 is "A", the rating of the LG 55UM7400PLB is "A", the rating of the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is "A+" and the rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 is "A".

User Review Rating is Worse

The average user rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is 93%, whereas the average user rating of the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is 100% (based on 3 reviews) and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 is 94% (based on 440 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Slightly Worse

The average overall rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is 93%, whereas the average overall rating of the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is 94% (based on 4 reviews).

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is 1,240mm wide, 714mm tall, 26.1mm thick and weighs 17.7kg.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 43UM7500

10W Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG 43UM7500 has an RMS rated power of 20 (as do the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300), however the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is only a 10W RMS rated power TV (10W lower). 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.

Timeshift

The LG 43UM7500 supports timeshift (as does the LG 55UM7400PLB), however the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not support this feature. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Parental Controls

The LG 43UM7500 supports parental controls, and so do the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300, however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 does not. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Miracast

The LG 43UM7500 supports Miracast (as does the LG 55UM7400PLB), however the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Voice Control

The LG 43UM7500 features voice control, and so do the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Cheaper to Run by £58 Over Five Years

The LG 43UM7500 is £58 cheaper to run than the LG 55UM7400PLB, £26 cheaper to run than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, £53 cheaper to run than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and £58 cheaper to run than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 over five years. More ...

One More Award

The LG 43UM7500 has received 1 award, but the LG 55UM7400PLB has received no awards, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has received no awards and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 has received no awards.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 43UM7500

Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG 43UM7500 is a 43 TV. That's 12" smaller than the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 (55"). 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.

So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

A Lot Thicker

The LG 43UM7500 has a thickness of 86.4, however the LG 55UM7400PLB is a 260mm thick TV (173.6mm thicker), the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is a 78.2mm thick TV (8.2mm thinner) and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 are both 26.1mm thick TVs (60.3mm thinner). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Slower High Frequency Rate

The LG 43UM7500 is a 50 refresh rate TV. That's 1,550Hz slower than the LG 55UM7400PLB (1,600Hz) and 1,350Hz slower than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 (1,400Hz). More ...

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 43UM7500 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, whereas the LG 55UM7400PLB scored 87, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 scored 89 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 scored 87.

£35 More Expensive

The LG 43UM7500 is more expensive than the LG 55UM7400PLB by £35 and more expensive than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 by £35.

Appreciably Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the LG 43UM7500 is 87%, whereas the average user rating of the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is 100% (based on 3 reviews), the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is 93% (based on 4,446 reviews) and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 is 94% (based on 440 reviews).

9 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 55UM7400PLB

12" Larger Display Diagonal

The LG 55UM7400PLB has a display diagonal of 55 (as do the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300), whereas the LG 43UM7500 is only a 43" TV (12" smaller). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

34% Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG 55UM7400PLB is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 43UM7500, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300. That's 10W higher than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 (10W). 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.

Timeshift

The LG 55UM7400PLB supports timeshift, and so does the LG 43UM7500, but the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Parental Controls

The LG 55UM7400PLB supports parental controls (as do the LG 43UM7500, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300), but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 does not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Miracast

The LG 55UM7400PLB supports Miracast, and so does the LG 43UM7500, but the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Voice Control

The LG 55UM7400PLB features voice control (as do the LG 43UM7500 and the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412), whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not feature this benefit. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Cheaper by £35

The LG 55UM7400PLB costs £35.43 less than the LG 43UM7500, costs £199.99 less than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and costs £50 less than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300.

Newer by Four Months

The LG 55UM7400PLB was released four months after the LG 43UM7500, released eight months after the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, released 10 months after the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and released two years after the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300

Better for Watching Films

The LG 55UM7400PLB is better for watching films than the LG 43UM7500, Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100. More ...

When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!

The LG 55UM7400PLB has a display diagonal of 55".

10 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 55UM7400PLB

Thicker

LG 55UM7400PLB is 260 thick. That's 173.6mm thicker than the LG 43UM7500 (86.4mm), 181.8mm thicker than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 (78.2mm) and 233.9mm thicker than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 (26.1mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Does Not Support Picture-in-Picture

The LG 55UM7400PLB does not support Picture-in-Picture, but the LG 43UM7500, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do. More ...

Picture-in-Picture is a special mode for a TV that allows two programs to be shown at the same time, one in a smaller screen overlaid on top of the first.

Picture-in-Picture on a TV is very helpful for browsing the net or taking Skype calls while still watching a movie or TV programme on the main screen.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 55UM7400PLB has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 scored 89.

Less Retailers

The LG 55UM7400PLB is only stocked by 7 stores, whereas the LG 43UM7500 is stocked by 9 stores and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is stocked by 8 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
£58 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the LG 55UM7400PLB are £155 which is £58 more than the LG 43UM7500, £32 more than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and £5 more than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100. Show assumptions.

Lower Energy Efficiency Rating

The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UM7400PLB is "A", however the rating of the LG 43UM7500 is "A", the rating of the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is "A+", the rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is "A" and the rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 is "A".

User Review Rating is Much Worse

The LG 55UM7400PLB's average user score is 85%, however the LG 43UM7500's is 87% (based on 9 reviews), the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412's is 100% (based on 3 reviews), the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100's is 93% (based on 4,446 reviews) and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300's is 94% (based on 440 reviews).

Overall Review Rating is Worse

The LG 55UM7400PLB's average overall score is 85%, however the LG 43UM7500's is 93% (based on 10 reviews), the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412's is 94% (based on 4 reviews), the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100's is 93% (based on 4,452 reviews) and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300's is 93% (based on 440 reviews).

Worse Brand

LG TVs have an average rating of only 93.7%, whereas Samsung has an average rating of 95%.

Worse for Playing Games

The LG 55UM7400PLB is worse for playing games than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300. More ...

When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.

The cheapest price that we could find for the 55UM7400PLB in the UK is £399.00 and in total we found 7 prices for it.

7 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300

18% Larger Display Diagonal

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 has a display diagonal of 55 (as do the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), however the LG 43UM7500 is only a 43" TV (12" smaller). 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.

So if you are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Thinner

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 is a 26.1 thick TV, and so does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100. That's 60.3mm thinner than the LG 43UM7500 (86.4mm), 233.9mm thinner than the LG 55UM7400PLB (260mm) and 52.1mm thinner than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 (78.2mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

34% Higher RMS Rated Power

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 is a 20 RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100. That's 10W higher than the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 (10W). 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.

Parental Controls

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 supports parental controls (as do the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412), whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 does not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 supports Digital Clean View, and so does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, but the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 do not. More ...

'Digital Clean View' is a function on Smart TVs that reduced the noise from low-quality signals.

Using Digital Clean View can drastically improve the picture quality on both analogue and digital signals by removing as much noise and blurring as possible from the picture.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 supports Wi-Fi Direct (as does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), whereas the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 do not support this feature. 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.

Samsung TVs have an average rating of 95%, however LG only has an average rating of 93.7% and Philips only has an average rating of 86.7%.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Philips 7300 Series 55PUS733412

12" Larger Display Diagonal

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 has a display diagonal of 55 (as do the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300), whereas the LG 43UM7500 is only a 43" TV (12" smaller). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Auto Volume Leveler

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 has an auto volume leveler, however the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not. More ...

An auto-volume leveler on your TV is a system to automatically adjust the volume on your TV to provide a consistent acceptable volume level across multiple inputs and programs.

An auto-volume leveler system on your TV will stop the volume from accidentally being set too low or too high for a movie or programme, making the sound more even across the board.

Parental Controls

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 supports parental controls (as do the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300), but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 does not support this feature. More ...

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

Voice Control

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 features voice control (as do the LG 43UM7500 and the LG 55UM7400PLB), whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 do not feature this benefit. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Better Manufacturer's Guarantee by One Year

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 comes with a two year guarantee from the manufacturer, however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a one year guarantee and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 has a one year guarantee.

Energy Efficiency Rating is Better

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 has a European Union Energy Efficiency Rating of "A+", however the LG 43UM7500 has a rating of "A", the LG 55UM7400PLB has a rating of "A", the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a rating of "A" and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 has a rating of "A".

One More Award

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 has received 1 award from an expert review site, whereas the LG 55UM7400PLB has received no awards, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has received no awards and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 has received no awards.

Better User Reviews

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 has an average user review score of 100% based on 3 reviews, however the LG 43UM7500 has an average rating of 87% (based on 9 reviews), the LG 55UM7400PLB has an average rating of 85% (based on 70 reviews), the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has an average rating of 93% (based on 4,446 reviews) and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 has an average rating of 94% (based on 440 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Philips 7300 Series 55PUS733412

40% Thicker

Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is 78.2 thick. That's 8.2mm thinner than the LG 43UM7500 (86.4mm), 181.8mm thinner than the LG 55UM7400PLB (260mm) and 52.1mm thicker than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 (26.1mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Lower RMS Rated Power

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is a 10 RMS rated power TV. That's 10W lower than the LG 43UM7500, the LG 55UM7400PLB, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 (20W). 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the LG 55UM7400PLB scored 87, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 scored 89 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 scored 87.

More Expensive by £200

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is £165 more expensive than the LG 43UM7500, £200 more expensive than the LG 55UM7400PLB, £200 more expensive than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and £150 more expensive than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300.

Less Retailers

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is only stocked by 5 shops, whereas the LG 43UM7500 is stocked by 9 shops, the LG 55UM7400PLB is stocked by 7 sellers, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is stocked by 8 shops and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7300 is stocked by 6 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Older by Eight Months

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 is four months older than the LG 43UM7500 and eight months older than the LG 55UM7400PLB.

Higher Running Costs Over Five Years by £26

The Philips 7300 series 55PUS733412 costs £123 to run which is £26 more than the LG 43UM7500 over five years. Show assumptions.
