Not 3D

The 43PFT4001 is not 3D, although keep in mind that most of the other medium display diagonal TVs that have been around for more than a year are also not 3D.

If you want a television that is 3D then you might want to look at the KDL-50W809 (£369.99), or the W805C (£689) both from Sony or the Sharp LC-49SFE7451.

Average High Frequency Rate

With a high frequency rate of 60 hertz, the Philips 43PFT4001 has a relatively standard high frequency rate compared to most of the other TVs of this spec and age.

We compared this TV to all the other 60Hz refresh rate TVs and we think the Sharp LC-43CFE6131 (£299.99), and the LG 43LX341 (£349) both of which are cheaper; or the LG 43LH570 (£445.49) which has better reviews are also worth considering.

43 Inches Display Diagonal

This is a 43 inch TV.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 43" TVs currently available including the Samsung UE43J5500 (£319) which is cheaper; or the 43LF510 (£368.84), or the 43LH570 (£445.49) both from LG and both of which have better reviews.

If you would prefer a larger display diagonal then you might want to look at the Samsung UE49K5100 (£299.90) (49" and cheaper), or the Seiki SE50FO06 (£329) (50" and cheaper).
