Amazing TV, just as good as a Samsung, but for a cheaper price.

Summary: Let me start out by saying I'm a perfectionist. Ya know how there are people out there who REALLY know what the hell they're talking about and then there are people who kinda do? Of course we all know that they are the people who don't know crap. Well, without being arrogant, let's just say I know my TV's. I've spent countless hours tracking the best TV's for the best prices and the best picture.
Summary: Like many of the other consumers, I searched and searched for months for the perfect TV. Catching it on sale also helped me decide on this TV. I have owned my 47PFL5704D for about six months now. The picture quality is great. The 120Hz is great for gaming; which was the original reason I wanted an LCD. In the above reviews, the consumers mention that the picture seems almost animated.
Summary: philips is a awesome company when it comes to TV's, in my opinion. Back in 2002 I bought a 27 inch and loved it. In 2003, I bought another Philips TV. A 61 inch TV and was very satisfied. But when I bought this 47 inch back in 2009. All I can say is wow.....! This TV is amazing! Especially if your a game & movie freak like me. The TV has you go through a set up proccess to custom the picture & colors how you want. The picture is super sharp/crisp. The colors are vibrant.
Summary: We purchased this television because it was such a good deal. We unpacked it and hooked it up and the remote control would not communicate with the television. We called support and they tested the remote - it was working fine - the tv had a bad sensor. So we were sent back to the store and it was replaced with a different one. We set that up and were very happy with the product for a year (that is why I gave them 2 stars).
Summary: I bought this tv on black Friday and I was so excited for it. I plugged it in and it didnt have sound... I was really angry until the sound came on about 30 seconds later. I shrugged it off. Later while watching movies or tv the screen would shift to the left about 10 inches leaving only black screen on the right side. Also the sound going in and out kept happening. Notice this is 2 problems. I called philips and they said they would gladly send a technician.
Summary: I just replaced this TV with a new TV after this one’s power supply burned out. It was out of warranty. I would have expected to have a TV last longer than 4 years. I was underwhelmed; to say the least.
Summary: When the tube on my 5-year-old Sony TV went out, I was under the gun to find a new HDTV. For the past few years, I've been loyal to the Sony brand, but since my old TV didn't work out so well, I was less brand-centric this time - BIG MISTAKE. Don't get me wrong - Philips is a fine mid-range brand, and you usually get a good value out of it. I've owned several Philips electronic products over the years (though of much lower value) and have been satisfied.
Summary: I bought this TV after much comparing in early 2010. Within a month, I was having sound isssues with the left speaker(not working sometimes, reboot usually cured it). Reversed the stereo leads from my SAT box, still was a left speaker problem. Replaced virtually all of the internal boards and STILL had a problem that the tech couldn't fix. He said he'd never seen it before. Finally got a "reconditioned" replacement which developed the SAME EXACT PROBLEM!!!
Summary: Bought the Philips 47 LCD HDTV, and after a little over a year the picture went out and sound continued to stay. Called Philips and they said to call a repair service and that the warranty was only ONE YEAR!!!! WOW!! They must even know how crappy their products are!! How convienient for them..lets set the warranty at ONE YEAR so when it goes out in the 14 months, then it wont be covered!! YAY we got em now!!!
Summary: Well... I have had mine plugged in for about 4 hours now. Love the picture on it. Its only 120 hz so of course 240hz would be better. But that would cost ya another $400 (more than half of what this tv cost me!) Sound is amazing and by far the best of any flat panel tv I have seen and heard. Lots of ports on it. Lots of options with the picture so you can tweak it the way you want or just set it to auto and let the tv do the work.
