Excerpt: Although this range-topping Philips didn't win an Award this year, it did receive a five star verdict in its First Test . You'll have spotted that it's already down to four stars. Philips is likely to be a bit upset by that, but in fairness, the company's really done it to itself by offering a cheaper TV with a similar level of performance – the Philips 47PFL7404 at £1200.
Pros: Excellent picture, one of the best flatscreen audio performances available, luxurious build and styling
Cons: Exceptional competition, not least from within Philips itself
