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.

Summary: My PHILIPS LCD TV died after giving hardly 3 years of service. I have been a victim of PHILIPS dubious customer service - please aviod PHILIPS if you want to avoid being a victim too. I am pasting my chat script with their customer support: Please wait while we find an available agent You have been connected to Sean . Sean : Hello Aash, and welcome to Philips Consumer Lifestyle. My name is Sean. Thank you for contacting us.
Summary: The price on here is such a good price. Other places sell for more. Shipping was super fast. This TV is good. I use it for my apartment away from home and it is the perfect size. It sounds small, only a little bit bigger than my laptop dimensions but I really like it. My apartment is small and this is just the right size. The picture quality is pretty good, not excellent, but good for the price. The sound quality is okay. Some channels can be louder than others.
