The Philips 32PF9986 is another high performance television that will cause ripples in the Flat Panel Television market. Philips established the flat-panel Television market with their outstanding plasma commercials and today they have a remarkable collection of Flat panel televisions with down to earth prices. Philips has always tried to portray their televisions as role models where design is concerned and the 32PF9986 is no different. Arguably one of the most stylish 32-inch LCD’s on display in the market today, its ambi-light backlighting is one of the most breathtaking aspect. The physical structure with matching colors will test the limits of temptation. There is a plexi glass border that conceals the speakers and this is followed by a silver plastic frame, a black bezel, and finally there is the screen. The top panel has all the necessary functions like the buttons for power, volume, and channel control; menu access; and input selection.

Following the footsteps of its big brother the 42PF9986, the Philips 32PF9986 also boasts of fluorescent backlights. You can adjust the color and the intensity of the light to change the décor. The 32PF9986 is heavy on performance and its black level and color temperatures are better than what it is in the earlier models. The native resolution of this wonder TV is 1,366x768 and this is enough for a full 720p HDTV display. It has some nice convenience features like the independent input memories and single tuner picture-in-picture. The 32PF9986 also includes different automatic picture adjustments and you can get the best viewing by turning off the DNR (Dynamic Noise Reduction), and the Dynamic Contrast. At its current price, the Philips 32PF9986 packs a real punch.

The Philips 32PF9986 comes with a Super Zoom that can stretch the sides of 4:3 sources to fill the screen. Some of the other interesting features include three Scart inputs, DVI input, RCA stereo audio, and one centre channel, which will let you use the TV speakers like a dedicated centre-channel speaker.
