Philips 42PFL5008 review

 

Sparkling looks and great value on this 42-inch LED TV

Two-sided Ambilight ; Build quality and looks ; Fast user interface ; Powerful audio ; Smooth 3D

EPG kills picture and sound ; Only three HDMI ports ; Limited smart TV ; No Lovefilm app ; Some motion blur and judder

With Ambilight, smart TV, great sound, a fine outward appearance and heaps of HD detail, the 42PFL5008 is a tempting proposition. However, there are some cracks in the performance – most notably motion blur and judder along with some weak upscaling....

Philips tries to make a cheap 42-inch TV - with decent results

Good all-round picture quality ; Fair price ; Above par audio

Content-light Smart Features - unless you like porn ; Haloing issue ; Needs care with set up

We have to say we found ourselves revisiting the 42PFL5008T’s set-up menus more regularly than we would those of most TVs. But at least the results of your efforts are mostly worthwhile.

A fantastic Ambilight TV with great image quality, but its depleted smart TV content and picture settings mean it just misses out on an award
