Expert review by: John Archer (trustedreviews.com)

Philips 55PFL7008

 

Could Philips TVs be the surprise package of 2013? This 55-inch set is a good start.

Excellent 3D performance ; Good 2D if you take the backlight down ; Good audio

Not much online content ; Smart TV interface is sluggish ; Motion processing can cause issues

As we’ve done with Samsung and Panasonic’s latest interfaces, we’ll be doing a separate feature on the full ins and outs of the new Philips SmartTV platform in the coming days.

This TV has great image quality, but its sluggish menus are a bit disappointing at this price
