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. I went to Phillips website and downloaded the update to a thumb drive and now the TV works really good.
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. I will not be buying another Philips and would recommend you dont either.
Summary: It may be Refurbished but seems perfect so far after about 2 weeks of use. Very easy to set up and I was even able to find the code so I can control it with my DirecTV remote. I only gave the features 4 stars because we haven't used many of the options yet. But I just got a DIV to HDMI cable (also ordered from Overstock) and can't wait to use it to hook up my laptop so we can watch streaming movies and tv shows from the internet on our beautiful new HD tv!
Summary: I had an earlier model of this same Tv. The picture on that one was equally good, but the only deficiency that model had was the sleep setting wasn't accessible from a button on the remote. You had to go through several menus before you could set the minutes. On this model there is a button on the remote. The remote is much smaller in size, but once familar with the placement you can find the essentials in the dark.
Summary: Overall the TV is fantastic; great black depth, motion, and bright, crisp display.Overstock shipped quickly, the TV arrived in perfect condition, and for the money it's a hard TV to beat. I'm impressed, and delighted with the purchase of the unit.Condition was like-new, if it didn't have the refurbished sticker on the back, it could have fooled me. Your results may vary on this one, though.If you're on the fence, buy it! You won't regret it....
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. I told my wife that it has to be very expensive. It wasn't. It was better than any other display in the store by far, nothing was even close.
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. My fallback TV is a 15-20 year old Sony with a vacuum tube display that still works. Having a TV fail after 1 year and 2 weeks is just unacceptable. This is both the first and last Philips for me.
