Reasons For

2 Reasons For
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The Philips 48PUS7600 has an RMS rated power of 30WW, but the Philips 49PUS7170 is only a 20WW RMS rated power TV (10W 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 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.

Thinner Edit
Philips 48PUS7600 is 17mmmm thick, but the Philips 49PUS7170 is a 37mmmm thick TV (20mm thicker). Read 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.

3 Reasons For
Slightly larger display diagonal Edit
The Philips 49PUS7170 has a display diagonal of 49"", but the Philips 48PUS7600 is only a 48"" TV (1" smaller). Read 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 viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Vastly faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Philips 49PUS7170 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800HzHz, however the Philips 48PUS7600 is only a 1,400HzHz motion interpolation frequency TV (799Hz slower). Read 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.

Cheaper to run by $12.18
Over five years the Philips 49PUS7170 is $12.18 cheaper to run than the Philips 48PUS7600. Read more
