Philips 27PT81S good review


I have had the TV for about 1 1/2 months and really like it. It has a great picture and the sound is very high quality. This is my first flat screen TV and it blows my old conventional one away. I can finally read the fine print and box scores of...

Great TV. Encountered no problems. Like all of the features. Lots of A/V inputs.

Product Specifications

Philips is one of the world's biggest electronics companies and Europe's largest. It is a global leader in color television sets, lighting, electric shavers, color picture tubes for televisions and monitors, and one-chip TV products. Whether in homes, factories, offices, airports, or on the street, it's hard to imagine a place where Philips is absent. What Philips wants is to make your life and work easier with innovation and quality! With Philips 27PT 81S you can enjoy all the benefits of Auto Window PIP without a VCR! You can tune to your favorite show with tuner one, for example, while scanning other channels with tuner two in the PIP window. The A/V inputs are also available as PIP sources so all functions of standard PIP are still accessible. The TV's Incredible Picture function creates a remarkable increase in clarity and sharpness at the point of transition from dark to light areas of the video image for a picture so sharp and well defined that you'll never want to go to the movies again. The Digital Comb Filter clearly separates black and white detail from color data virtually eliminating dot crawl and delivering unmatched, razor-sharp picture performance. To crown it all, Philips also brings you the Incredible Surround function that creates an exciting psycho-acoustic effect of widening the stereo spatial image for full-impact home entertainment.
