Impossible to upgrade the software. Phillips horrible costumer service!!!
16 February 2015
Summary: I tried to upgrade the software of my TV 40PFL4706/F7 from a 1GB FAT32 USB stick. The USB stick contains only the update file ( PHL - 0AB_334_0.upg ) that I downloaded from the official Philip support website. Then this is the message I got when I try to update the software.
Summary: Hate it. Picture sucks my old 720p actually has a clearer more vibrant picture. No web Browser, useless apps, to much bloat ware that nobody uses and no way to remove it, has been no firmware updates, and will no play from a usb hard drive and last but not least is the fact that I bought this tv so...
Summary: Takes way yo long to start on power up, too long to turn off (image goes off but sound continues for several seconds). Turns on randomly at times. Netflix is incredibly slow to load over wifi and with direct ethernet connection. Neyflix also cuts out at times.

Summary: My TV powers on, displays the Philips logo and then powers off immediately. We spent a lot of money for Philips to bombard us with branding and nothing else. When it worked, it had a great picture. Sadly, now that the power will not engage, our only viewing choice is a black screen.
Summary: I had tried 2 of these TVs and both TVs had problem with the network. I use my TV with netflix and I have to wait for several minutes for the TV to recognize my wireless network. My 2nd TV at 1 month had issues with the wireless.
Philips TV 40PFL4706/F7 cannot use Headphones or connect to Hulu or Amazon movies

Summary: I keep finding another piece of missing technology on this "Smart TV" I bought this locally on clearance about 4 months go. First, Hulu was not in the "Smart TV" lineup, although Netflix and Blockbuster (pay-per-view) were. So I bought an external Roku-like device for $60.
Summary: This TV has an excellent picture. The main drawback is something I read about in other reviews and that is it takes a long time to power up, which is true. But, it seemed a small price to pay.
Summary: I purchased this TV through Amazon several months ago and at the time, I only paid about half of the list price plus free shipping. I gave 5 stars, but it probably only deserves 4 1/2 because of the wireless MediaConnect feature, which is what initially made me choose this and I have been very happy...
