'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.

20% higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung T32E310 has an RMS rated power of 20W, however the Philips 32PFH4100 is only a 16W RMS rated power TV (4W 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 lot thinner Edit
The Samsung T32E310 has a depth of 52mm, however the Philips 32PFH4100 is a 77mm thick TV (25mm 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.
