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.
Summary: I like the Ambilight feature. Most of everyone else I’ve talked to about it said It’s sort of a so-so feature. But it’s not distracting and you can turn it off any time.
Pros: Good picture quality. Works with a PC running Ubuntu (Thought 1024x768 doesn’t seem to work without some tweaking). Sound comes in via audio from input 1. It has lots of inputs. You can select from a decent list of names for each input (No custom text). The usurers manual is fairly well written.
Cons: TV takes several seconds to turn on. For the HDMI input, you can set it to draw it’s sound from input 1, but this disables input 1 from receiving sound. If you want to use HDMI with sound from input 1 and also have something hooked to input 1, you have to go into the menu and change an option.
Summary: Only things listed above make me not rate this a 5 and love it. Mostly annoyed about the slow channel changing and not seeing the volume while the channel is displayed. This tv will make others jealous!
Pros: Wonderful picture. High contrast really makes a difference. Ambilight will change how you watch movies, have to try it to understand. Glad I bought this tv, just wish I had a wallmount for it.
Cons: Flipping through channels is slow with the remote. When you change the channel and then the volume, the volume meter won't show until the channel display disappears (annoying). Sometimes when turning to my dvd player using HDMI cable, all I'll get is pixels. Have to turn tv off then on again to g...
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.
Summary: I don't own this TV, but wanted to let anyone know looking to buy this tv that the info here isn't 100% accurate (I nearly bought one myself until I did more research).
Pros: Has lots of features, looks nice.
Cons: Contrary to what newegg has listed, this tv does NOT have picture in picture. consumerrerports.org and phillips themselves confirm this fact (I just got off the phone with a phillips tech by the name of Darryl who verified this).
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...
