Weight & Dimensions

Quite Thick

The depths of medium display diagonal TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as this TV range from 3.5mm to 100mm. With a depth of 77 millimeters, the Philips 40PFT4100 has one of the thicker depths amongst medium display diagonal TVs of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 77mm thick televisions currently available including because of its better review score, the Sony KDL-50W656.

If you would consider a television with a thicker depth then you might want to look at the Philips 40PFH4100 (£269.99) (77mm), or the Cello C40227 (77mm).
