Philips 46PFL9707 review

 

Going back to nature usually means buying a rural homestead with a couple of cows and goats, establishing a vegetable patch and donning Hessian underpants. Yet with Philips, taking a cue from nature certainly does not mean abandoning technology. While...

Class-leading 2D pictures; gorgeous design with Ambilight; exceptional sound for a flatscreen TV

It's expensive; 3D suffers with crosstalk ghosting; needs care with processing settings; Smart portal feels second-rate

Philips 46PFL9707 review

 

Moth Eye returns on this rare direct LED TV

Deep black levels ; Precise 2D images ; Mixed brightness ; Cursor-keyboard remote

Hugely expensive ; Smart TV disappoints ; 3D dogged by crosstalk

The annual winter release of Philips' flagship TV has become a bit of an occasion at TechRadar, with the Dutch brand's 9000 Series regularly at the forefront of LED TV tech - and the arrival of this 46-inch TV doesn't change that.

Traditionally - and entirely understandably - moths and televisions haven't had that much in common. Surprisingly, though, the moth and TV worlds suddenly came together in spectacular fashion at the end of 2011 when Philips realised that reproducing on...

Class-leading contrast, bold colours, outstanding sharpness, good design, excellent remote design, very bright and colourful 3D pictures, it sounds great

It’s expensive, 3D pictures are troubled by crosstalk, online services are limited

While it’s ultimately hard to give a TV as expensive as the 46PFL9707 a whole-hearted recommendation when its online features are so flimsy and the 3D part of its performance is so flawed, it’s also hard to complain too much when the same set produces...

Philips' new Moth Eye TV sets new picture standards. With 2D, at least...

Sensational 2D picture quality ; Appealing design ; Very good audio

3D suffers excessive crosstalk ; It's expensive ; Online features not extensive enough

If money is no object and you want to secure yourself what we’d argue are the best quality 2D pictures money can currently buy, then the Philips 46PFL9707 is the TV for you. The moth-eye filter and Philips’ image processing qualities really do combine...

Philips 46PFL9707 TV Review

 

We take a look at Philips new flagship LED LCD TV with a 'Moth Eye' filter.

Respectable black levels ; Impressive dynamic range ; Excellent backlight uniformity ; Good out-of-the-box performance ; Excellent performance after calibration ; Superb video processing ; Moth Eye filter is a definite winner ; ISF Ambilight setting...

Limited off-axis performance ; Occasional minor backlight banding ; 3D performance suffers from crosstalk ; Unable to detect 2:2 cadence ; Input lag is a bit high ; Pricey
