An embarrassingly bad product.

K. Gatlin "Book Fiend", Amazon
10 March 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this TV six months ago, brand new, from Sam's Club. While the actual DISPLAY function of the TV is quality and why it gets two stars, everything else about it is a tedious and un-userfriendly mess. It is IP capable with built in Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, etc software. The problem?

Poor picture and sound quality

  • Summary: I was drawn to this TV based on the good reviews and the very reasonable price. It was replacing a 720p plasma TV that had just died. Obviously when reviewing any TV it depends upon what you're comparing it to.

  • Summary: like many others who have purchased this tv I have also had some problems with it. It worked well for the first 3 weeks then it started shutting off and turning on by itself. This is not amazons fault.

  • Summary: I bought this TV thinking that I was getting an huge deal.Boy was I wrong! Let me tell you, should have read the reviews first! When watching movies on cable, the pictures would be what you'd would rate an CRT TV..Color bleeds,some times fuzzy pictures,strange sound system.

  • Summary: So I am also having the same issues as a few people here! Just one day after a month, turn it on and no picture! I called Philips and they called a repair person, but after almost 3 weeks, still not repaired! Call after call and being nice, I am still waiting!

Too good to be true

K.W., Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this TV approximately a month ago. Until just yesterday, it had been a relatively good product for us. We had some issues with Netflix being dimmer when you watched it through NetTV, but when we routed it through the Wii, it cleared up the issue with the poor picture.

Not impressed

Richard Kleinhenz, Amazon
4 April 2012
  • Summary: I am underwhelmed by this TV. As a TV, it's OK. This is my first LCD TV. There is a very long (21 sec) power-on delay. I didn't think this would bother me, but it turned out to be quite a nuisance when I tried to program a universal remote.

Worked Great....for 9 days.

Limes, Amazon
27 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this TV on March 18th. I was coming from a first generation LCD which crapped out. The picture was great, and the sound was just fine. It was easy to install and set up, and the customization features to set the colors, tint, etc were great. I even really enjoyed the internet capability.

  • Summary: I bought this and paid a premium for the supposed capability of connecting directly to NetFlix. On the rare occasion where it would work, it was nice; the down side is this feature was seldom realized.

Remote sensor has issues

G. Huang, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: This seemed at first a great deal, but found two issues. The software after the upgrade is very slow. Almost 2 seconds for it to respond to a command. The remote sensor does not work well, I need to walk up-close to the TV to change the channels.
