Summary: I purchased this TV new in 2006 and was greatly impressed with the Side-by-Side comparisons with other manufacturers. It was $1200 at the time, and held its own with all but the $2500 Pioneer and Sony sets. As of 1/18/12 it's still going strong, and has recently been relegated to Garage Duty, being that I picked up a new LG. I love ambilight feature. Some call it Gimmicky, but it does ease eye strain when watching TV. I with newer sets offered this feature.
Summary: Replaced my rear projection Wega with this unit and I am pleased with the TV except for a few items. The ambilight is wonderful, some people see it as a gimmick but i find the viewing is much nicer and adds to the room. Maybe a light behind the TV would be as good, but I don't think so. The picture is sharp and crisp and the different formats make viewing non-HD channels that much easier.
Summary: Its been 5 years no problems - i leave it on alot even through the night alot. It busted today - smells like smoke and turned off. Its been a good 5 years, no issues except the crappy sound (but i have surround sound) I'm gunna miss ya AMBILIGHT - old friend Jan 2007 - Feb 2012 Original post: I'm totally obessed with ambilight. i love it. had the tv for almost 2 months now... dont know about the overheating thing people talk about.
Excerpt: The first thing to say about the Philips is that it looks great. If this is your first large flat screen telly, you'll be blown away by its dark sleekness and the amount of space it saves - especially if you wall mount it. The 37" is a good size for a smaller lounge in that it doesn't take over the room. That said it still provides that home cinema experience - especially with an additional sound system.
Pros: good picture/ good connectivity/ambilight is a nice touch
Cons: Unsupported sound quality is not as good as comparable brands
Summary: Ich habe mir den Philips 37 PF 9631 D bei einem großen deutschen Versandhaus bestellt und er wurde prompt geliefert. Die Verarbeitung des Materials ist sehr gut, Philips angemessen. Er ist Dank seines Designs ein echter Hingucker in jedem Wohnzimmer. Der Vorteil ist, dass man allein am Platz spart im Gegensatz zu einem Röhrengerät. Die Bildqualität bei HD-TV-Sendungen ist überragend, sowie wie bei Blu-Ray-Filmen oder Geräten, wie der XBOX360 oder der neuen PlayStation 3.
Pros: Super LCD - Fernseher + Top Bildqualität
Cons: nicht bei allen Fernsehsendern eine gute Qualität + hoher Preis
