Summary: We bought this model TV from Sam's Club. The TV caught on fire. I called Sam's Club first. They said they could do nothing because there was no warranty but they gave me a number to call Philips. I did.
Summary: I purchased this TV due to my older Phillips stopped working after owning it for 10+ years. I thought a 42" TV would be a good upgrade from the 25" I had before. After a while the TV would turn on and off by itself. Then there was problems with the sound.
Summary: Bought this TV a couple years ago and now all 4 HDMI ports dont work. Contacted tech support and of course I got the run around and conveniently out of warranty. Of course they were more than happy to refer me to several service centers at my own expense.
Summary: When I am watching this beautiful display it is hard to stop. That is what sold me on it when I first saw it in Sam's Club after 3 days of shopping all of the local sources where I could view operating TV's. It was among about 15 or 20 TV's in Sam's and when I saw it I just stopped and stared.
Summary: I bought my Philips 42PFL7403D/27 fifty-four weeks ago. I was happy with this TV until yesterday when it failed. As the disgusting, but telltale, smell of failed electronics permeated my family room, the TV started up with an unusable dim and blotchy picture.
Summary: I purchased this TV at Sam's last week, it compared very well in features to other TVs for a lot less $$, I paid $997. With 2 ms response time, pixel perfect engine, and 120hz you can't ask more for your money.
Summary: I purchased this TV and was very pleased until a volume problem started. When watching a show the sound went to full volume and static. I contacted Philips and it turns out to be a design flaw with the TV. They refused to fix it and suggested I return the TV.
Excellant Picture Quality, So So Onscreen Control, Poor Remote Button Layout...

Summary: I've purchased this TV in early August and the picture quality can't be beat in my opinion. On the other hand, the on screen controls don't measure up. For example, type in a channel number and you'll see a number that can't be much larger than one inch square show up on the screen camouflaged among...
Summary: I purchased this at Sam's Club on sale. The saleswoman there seemed really knowlegable about the T.V.'s and recommended this one for us. It was easy to hook up and select the type of picture you wanted but the picture is coarse and not as good a quality as I had hoped from it.
Summary: I am updating my original rating because, after spending over $600 dollars to fix the TV which broke after two years, the TV has had another major breakdown (picture is orange, lines thru it, etc).
