Summary: This tv's remote performs poorly unless pointed closely and directly at the receiver beside the power button. It does not recognize my blue-ray player even when I set that player to output 720p or 1080i, which it is supposed to support, and just shows "format not supported". The picture drops for even the slightest weak signal, I had to replace my cable to improve the signal strength so the picture would consistently display. Overall, I wish I had never bought this tv.
Summary: Volume control response is agonizingly slow. If you are subjected to a loud commercial or have shut it off with the volume up it takes an excessive amount of time for this tv to respond to remote or manual commands to reduce the din. Other than that, no complaints but if I had read this review before purchase I would definitely have NOT chosen this model. What a pain in my ears. . . .
Summary: Poor antenna reception consistently, died after 18 months with a pop - now no power light - tried the turn On/Off, unplug routine recommended by others, fuse OK. Phillips at one time was a good brand name, I'd be very leery of buying another Phillip's product.
Summary: I bought this TV a couple months after the digital broadcast switch. It broke on me less than three years later. Funny thing is that after reading the other reviews of this TV, I realized that I probably had one of the better ones since I at least got to use mine beyond the warranty date. I will never buy another Phillips product again....and that includes their stinking light bulbs. Honestly, what happened to TV's that lasted 10-15-20 years?
Summary: The picture is great- ifu you can get it. If you do not have cable or dish, you are out of luck. There is a tuner problem with this model (or maybe brand). We don't all have "cable" connections. There is no place on the box that says "don't buy this TV and expect to get good reception if you only have a convertor box." Had I read that, I would NOT have bought this TV.
Summary: We have had this TV for a year and a half now and have never had a problem one with it. The picture is perfect and great sound. My wife used it at different locations for a year so it got moved back and forth a lot but still works great. Maybe we got the exception but I can't complain about this TV at all.
Summary: For 15 months this was a fine TV; picture and sound were good. Then it wouldn't start on the first click. Within a week it could take a half hour to light this thing. Philips support people were polite but refused to help. The technical support group did not admit to the problem and offered no advise. On line posts, and my suspicion, is a power supply problem. If you get the TV to start it works fine.
