Summary: I gave this product a 4 star rating as it's a good TV especially as it's a refurbishment & not a new one, but this does not matter to me as it's a good clear picture & is HD Ready LCD TV with Freeview. As far as I'm concerned there nothing to dislike about this TV & everything to like. I'd recommend this TV to anyone thinking of replacing their present one but do not want to spend a fortune on a brand new one.
A high quality LCD television from Philips except for the loud clicks!

Excerpt: When flat screen televisions were first introduced I was somewhat envious of those friends who had purchased them, but unfortunately, their extortionate price tag was well out of my price range. However, approximately eighteen months ago we had no choice but to carry out research for a new television as our old fashioned box-type packed in.
Excerpt: I have owned a Philips 32PDL5522 LCD television for over 2.5 yrs and am very pleased with my choice. It was my very first HD television and I haven't regretted my choice. It is just the right size for a medium sized room, however if you have a large living room you might want to buy a larger model. The quality of pictures is much better than many other brands I tested and offer a better value for money.
Excerpt: I have owned my Phillips LCD 32PFL5522 for a little over a year now and I must say I have been very impressed with it. I had concerns about the screen size not being large enough with so many 37", 40" and larger out on the market but for the average room size, it looks perfect. The sleak gloss black surround looks very good, however, can reflect the sun into your eyes at certain angles.
Summary: The Philips 32PFL5522D is an excellent TV at a very reasonable price. Worked right out of the box, Freeview setup was a breeze and has been working impeccably since I bought it about 9 or 10 months ago. I also use it connected to my laptop from time to time and it works very well for that too. The audio might not be the best ever which is why I dropped one star off an otherwise impeccable tv. UPDATE: 2013. It still works very well!
Excerpt: The Philips 32PFL5522D is a LCD 32" HD ready TV. This TV is not one of Philips top of the range TV's from there new line. Saying that it does have some cool features, pixel plus being one of them and 2 HDMIs (for HD ready devices). You dont get the new Philips pixel perfect HD E-Processing or the new back lighting system which is introduced in the top range in this line. Then again the TV does only cost around £400-£450.
Summary: My TV arrived a couple of days ago and I'm very pleased with it. The sound quality is excellent when compared with other Tvs of a similar price. I chose this one based on price and other reviews which were all positive, and I've not been disappointed. HOWEVER, I paid the extra £8.99 to guarantee it would be delivered on Friday 28th Dec by 1pm (Express Delivery) as I was having time off work so could wait for it. 1pm came and went, no sign of the TV.
Summary: The choice to go for this set was made for me; I had originally ordered the LG 32LC46 from Pixmania, as they had it on sale for £293, however I received an email the following day stating that it was out of stock and I would be receiving the Philips 32PF5566D/05 (it's full title) instead at no extra cost - I wasn't going to complain as this was the more expensive option.
Summary: Great picture and good sound for a good price. But its all let down by the Program Guide which is nowhere near as good as that on my old £20 from Tescos freeview box. You have to view the precis separately and you can't even set reminders! Frankly, it looks like they had some student lash it up for work experience. Aside from that, its easy to set up and blows the socks off my old CRT.
