Philips 42PF7621D


Per square inch of its large screen size, the Philips 42PF7621D uses a mere 0.228W of power, making the energy-consumption an impressive 15% less than that of its nearest competitor for EISA's Green Award. It is by no means a lightweight design, with...

The quality of Philips' recent LCD TVs has varied so dramatically that it's impossible to prejudge the 42PD7621D, but it gets off to a impressive start with its swish (albeit wide) appearance.

Great picture, Wide-ranging sound, Good connectivity

Philips 14PV203: Cheap as chips


I purchased this television as I needed a new one for the bedroom, as the last one fell off the cabinet and never worked again. I purchased it brand new from a local tv dealership, who has been there for 15 years. I paid at the time £71.60 for it. I...
