Philips Has Good TV Reviews

Mid-size TVs manufactured by Philips have good reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that Philips also has good reviews across its entire range.

Supports Smart TV Features

The 49PFS5501 supports smart TV features. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for the last year do not support smart TV features.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other televisions which support smart TV features currently available including the Samsung UE49K5510 which is cheaper; or the Panasonic TX-49DS500 which has better reviews.

We compared all the other televisions which also support smart TV features to this TV and we think the LG 49LH570 ($399.99) is also worth considering.
