Philips 42PFL5907/F7


In my native land of Australia, Philips hasn't sold a television in four years -- not because the TVs aren't popular, they just aren't actually sold there. Here in the U.S., it's almost easy to think the same thing , especially when Philips releases...

The Philips PFL5907 LED TV has impressive picture quality for the price, anchored by relatively deep black levels, good shadow detail, and a natural color palette in most areas. The TV has a diverse feature set, including MediaConnect PC mirroring.

The Philips exhibited a really shallow optimal viewing angle. Colors could be better; its reds and blues lack the vibrancy of some of its rivals', while near blacks can look purple.

The Philips PFL5907 series has commendable picture quality and features, making it one of the better LED TV values.

"NO FlashPlayer included"


Although the majority of videos, movies, series and shows available on the internet today are viewed in FlashPlayer,

Philips offers a quality picture. Back lighting is nice.

Majority of video available on the internet today is viewed in FlashPlayer which Philips doesn't have.
