Great Pic shame about sound


I have read many reviews before buying the Philips 42PFL5405. I read many good and few not so good. The bad comments were about the sound quality. You always get some poor comments about anything you buy but in the case they were justified. I have finally upgraded my TV after putting up with an old LCD ( for 6 years old ) After reading the poor comments about the sound quality, I just though 'well it must be better than what I have' but sadly my old LCD's sound is alot better than this one. On a positive note, using my surround sound instead of the standard volume is the solution. The TV picture is very good and I personally like the TV menu ( looks very good ) and the set up is amazingly simple as it seems to do everything for you stage by stage giving you personal options. In conclusion, the picture and spec is at the top end for the money but it is sadly let down with the sound. Hmmm maybe I will stick with LG in the future... I will see how it goes....Very good HD....

Great Buy!


This tv is great, I bought a 32" Sony in the Jan sale, but it wasn't what I wanted, so I sold it and bought this instead. Easy to connect and set up.

Philips 42PFL5405H/12 LCD Television


Well I was looking for an affordable LCD TV with a good HD picture and came across this. Reviews in English are few and far between because it's a continental model but there were plenty of five star reviews in european languages and at under £500 for...

The HD and BD picture on this TV is stunningly good

The sound lets it down a little
