Philips Cinema 21:9 ( 56PFL9954H/12)

CNET
27 March 2010
  • Summary: The Philips Cinema 21:9 is aimed at a very specific audience. If you're a movie lover with deep pockets, you'll be very happy with this TV. Some projectors offer a better home-cinema solution, but they aren't all that suited to everyday use.
  • Pros: Aspect ratio is great for 2.35:1 movies; picture quality is very good; sound quality is amazing for a TV; plenty of features; excellent number of inputs.
  • Cons: Aspect ratio isn't suited to all material; expensive.

  • Excerpt: Every now and then, a manufacturer comes up with an idea that it claims will reinvent the way we think about home cinema. This time it's Philips' turn with the 56PFL9954H , more emotively known as the Cinema 21:9 LCD TV. Not just another big 56-inch LCD HDTV, this one is designed specifically for watching big screen movies.

  • Excerpt: The unit comes with a wall bracket in the box, but if you prefer a table-top stand, a swivel unit is available as an option for $399. We have been calling this unit a ‘display’ rather than a TV because although it does have TV tuners built in, these are not optimised for Australia. The analogue TV tuner worked here OK, but the digital one could find none of our local stations.
