Great 2nd TV - but...

 

Overall, this is very good. If you are picky about cables (like me), just plan ahead, and you will be happy. Its easy enough to fix.

Picture is great, plenty of inputs, does as advertised. Great buy for the price I got it for, plus it's a name brand. Nice big bright screen, with all the gadgets. DirecTV universal remote, once it's programmed, gets to all the menu functions, so you...

Only 2 minor faults I can find with this are cable management, and the stand. The included and only option for the stand is the small center-mounted pedestal as pictured, cant be wall mounted, so cables are visible unless you want to go through the...

Philips 19PFL3505D 19" 720p LCD TV - 16:9 - HDTV

 

I bought this to save space on my desk and am very pleased with the performance. I bought it primarily to replace my 19" crt monitor and get rid of what I had been using for TV. As a TV the picture quality easily matches the Sony Bravia in the living...

Average

 

I read everywhere that 720p wouldn't matter for a 32 inch screen. It was wrong. If you want a great picture go for 1080, regardless of size. 720 is good for gaming, but is lacking for movies and HD content. But for 3 bones, can't get 1080.

Great Price; 3 HDMI ports, solid construction

On/Off TV switches hard to find, 720p does matter

Ok tv great price

 

just make sure to get you cable or satellite box settings right before you give up hope on the tv

the tv is thin and light weight making it great for a bedroom tv. price cant be beat

the picture was very poor when i first hooked it up and i blamed the tv. but after a few changes to my box settings the picture improved greatly. so don't think the picutre sucks right away. it is only 720p but for the price no complaints

Philips 19PFL3505D 19" 720p LCD TV - 16:9 - HDTV

 

Incredible, for the price. I purchased mine at Target, but it is the same TV.

Consumer review by: YoJo (newegg.com)

good for the price

 

I don't recommend this for primary use in the living room. but mine is in the "family room" where I keep a computer connected. Wearing glasses or contacts to watch this one is pointless. If I had use for another secondary TV, I'd buy another, However,...

Very low cost - Probably worth the money for secondary use in a bedroom or playroom. 3 HDMI connections. Competitors give only 2. Nice with an HTPC and useful as a secondary monitor

Video is bit jaggy around curved edges and sometimes blurrs a bit for fast motion scenes. Comparably priced machines do about the same. You get what you pay for

Consumer review by: Daniel (newegg.com)

Good Value

 

Good price for all the options this HDTV offers. Overall a nice looking TV and very functional

The picture is not as sharp as I expected. However, I am comparing the picture sharpness to my new Sony Bravia, so that might be a little unfair. However Philips has a good reputation in Europe for building good electronics so my comparision may not be...

Great for bedside or kitchen

 

I love this TV I have the 32 inch also in my family room

Consumer review by: Sheek (officedepot.com)

Not What I Expected

 

The TV has a 20 second delay (which is a long time especially when waiting for news flash or important message) before the sound and picture come on, while the TV prominently displays PHILIPS on the full screen, which is free advertisement for Philips...

delivery time was good

Display Screen, sound quality, performance, expensive, Build Quality, Print Quality, poor customer service, the outside package was ripped
