Excerpt: My husband did lots of research before we bought our first flat screen TV. We had one of those huge big screen TVs that take up so much space (can't remember the brand) and after a year and a half the bulb went out. We found out it would cost almost as much to repair as to buy a new one, so we ended up with this one. I love it. The picture quality is outstanding. The sound - eh, not awesome but not bad either. I like that it swivels easily so you can turn it if you want.
Excerpt: My husband bought this television for our family a few years ago, after a lot of deliberating and walking around every electronics store in the city to compare prices and models. Having both been brought up on older, smaller TVs all our lives, the transition to high-def, LCD TVs was great! This one allows my husband to get the full experience he likes when he does his gaming, and it allows us to watch the movies we love together.
Excerpt: When my wife and I got married a few years ago, we needed a TV. We shopped around to quite a few places and finally settled on the 42 in Philips LCD TV with Ambilight. It had the best picture quality and contrast ratio of the TVs in our price range, under $1500. We didn't really care about the Ambilight technology when we initially bought the TV, but over time it has become our favorite feature. We can turn off all the lights in the room but with the ambilight on,...
Excerpt: I purchaed the phillips LCD TV after I compared it to several Plasma and LCD units at a local electronics retailer. It has a very crisp picture which is not effected by your viewing angle. The colors are rich and it looks even better when you are playing a blu-ray Disc. Setup was straight forward and a breeze. It included a wizard driven menu which give you either default or selections you can choose based on your prefrence.
Summary: I'm not a techno geek and think this is a really good TV. We all like the ambi-glow feature at night. The digital pictures are crisp and clean and the color is perfect. No issues hooking it up. If I needed another for another room I wouldn't hesitate a bit in buying another.
Summary: This tv is a dream. DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY. It is sooooo worth it. The picture is beyond clear and the ambilights are an added plus. They light up any wall like Times Square or Vegas...seriously! It has so many capabilities Im still learning myself. Its sleek, stylish and huge viewing screen. Phillips delivered with this one!!!
Summary: The tv looks great with the exception of an egg shaped discoloration in the middle of the screen that can be seen whenever deep black is in the picture. I am getting in warranty repair done to correct the issue. I am told it is either a defective video board or screen. It will take 7-10 to repair.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Reduced Glare, Simple Controls
