Philips 42PFL7666 review


When Philips offloaded its TV division to Chinese manufacturer TPV a year ago, it seemed like it was game over for the idiosyncratic Dutch brand. Battered by declining global demand and hampered by a year without Freeview HD, some thought it had...

Superior build quality; convenient Passive 3D tech; worthwhile selection of streaming

Complicated picture calibration; low-resolution 3D; some HDMI handshaking issues

Philips 42PFL7666 review


From 21:9 models to Ambilight illuminated widescreens, Philps has always strived to be different. Now with the Philips 42PFL7666, it throws Passive 3D tech into the mix

Ambilight Spectra 2 lighting ; Well-stocked IPTV portal ; Fine hi-def picture quality

Challenging image calibration ; Jaggy looking Passive 3D

Overall, Philips 7000 series can be considered good value. Build quality and design are a cut above the norm, and its networking abilities are solid. HD picture quality is very good, and Easy 3D is fun too, provided you watch square on to avoid crosstalk.

Philips 42PFL7666H review


Edge LED TV with Wi-Fi makes the case for Passive 3D

Full HD detail ; Ambilight ; Bushed metallic design & build quality ; Powerful audio ; MyRemote app's photo streaming

Passive 3D lacks detail ; Visible pixel grid during 3D ; Lacks must-have apps ; Contrast

Phillips has taken its sweet time in delivering its 2011 line-up of LED TVs, but this 7000 Series screen was worth the wait.

Philips 42PFL7666


The Philips 42PFL7666 delivers arguably the most compelling argument yet for passive 3D – and it's not bad at other stuff either!

Very good 3D performance ; Mostly good 2D performance ; Above average audio

Black level response could be better ; Online service still a little off the pace ; Care must be taken with setup

Philips 7000 series Smart LED TV (42PFL7666T/12) review


A great passive 3D TV, with all the usual high-end features and the bonus of AmbiLight

The 7000 series is a very well-equipped TV that benefits greatly from the addition of AmbiLight. Its high definition performance is fantastic and 3D video looks great, but standard definition footage isn’t particularly impressive. If Freeview image...

Philips 42PFL7666 review


3D Smart TV with apps, smartphone control & networking. All hail the smart TV. Loaded with online video,...

BBC iPlayer; brushed metallic design; MKV support from USB; onscreen slideshow from smartphone

No MKV support over network; slow web browser; choice of online video apps; Freeview EPG

Philips’ attempt at a highly polished, zeitgeisty TV ends-up being mostly about excellent picture quality, with heavy focus on the networking and online features. Its online video service isn’t engaging, enough save for BBC iPlayer. The other...
