Excellent LCD tv for the price


I am very happy with this TV, when I called Philips customer service to talk to them about the burned out pixels, they will be sending me a replacement TV! I have a PS3 and Wii and play lots of video games and also watch movies. My old set was ......

Philips customer service - absolutely wonderful ; Price - I don't think I could have found a brand new 40in 120hz tv this good for the price I paid ($499 +tax) ; Excellent picture quality - good color, contrast and no issues that I can see with motion...

A few pixels burned out within a few months of purchase

Good picture quality, nice black levels, awesome price


Great TV at a great price. Cant beat it.

240hz, Very nice picture quality, Have not had many problems with the TV, Needs tuing of the picture to get to an acceptable point but then its brilliant ; If you have digital natural motion turned on, there is a noticable lag of abt a second when...

small quirks ; 1. Remote sensitivity is low ; 2. I have had sound issues when connected to my laptop, in particular when i stop playing something, the tv emits a buzzing noise which is annoying

Good picture but over saturated color


Bought at Sam's club. Picture is much deeper in contrast and, shall we say, realism. Color saturation is a downer. sound is good.

Good picture--quite a bit different than regular LCD

Out of the box, picture was terrible-had to dowload latest firmware just to get the picture close to acceptable ; Out of the box, picture was terrible--had to download latest firmware--three versions newer. Oversaturation of blues greens reds etc. Can

Exceptional television that surpassed our expectations!


there is a lot to learn about this TV. Calling it a TV doesn't even sound right considering its high quality. However, we're learning how it works and what it has as we go... slowly but surely. I would recommend that you get a test drive on this before...

Resolution, audio control (for those pesky commercials), HD is really awesome and blu ray videos are spectacular. The HDMI ports allow for our receiver to do it's job and it does it well! No brainer here; this is a great tv for a great price

I don't have any cons to talk about

Good for the price


This television is absolutely a first rate TV. For the price there isnt nothing that comes close in regards to picture quality which in the end is what you pay for. The scanning backlight is superb and provides superior black levels - HD images are...

Better than expected.


I went into the local Sams Club to purchase a Sony I saw advertised and was dissapointed that they sold the last one. Looking around i found this Phillips at a really good price so I figured I would give it a try. Sams club has a 90 day return policy...

1. Great price ; 2. 240 MHZ ; 3. Fantastic sound

1. Bare bones for features

Use an external audio amplifier and care about sound? AVOID THIS PRODUCT


For the first week, I was very happy with this HDTV. It was (I thought) good value for the money. And if you plan on simply using the TV's speakers, or you don't care about the quality of sound, especially Dolby Digital or DTS surround sound, then...

Nice Screen, Simple Setup, Excellent Picture Quality

Poor Sound, Lack of Inputs, HUGE PROBLEM WITH AUDIO
