Excellent Picture Quality

 

Stylish, Very Good HD Picture quality via Virgin V+ Cable Box.

Narrow Viewing angle when connected through scart lead. Audio could be improved.

Quality Flat Panel

 

(Edited January 17th by ConProdPunk) Unless Philips addresses a few problems, possibly in a future firmware update, I am somewhat reserved on giving this TV a stellar rating.

Nice styling, bright display, true to life neutral colors

Volume level differences between Analog and Digital Channels

Phillips 26PF5321D/37 26

 

Went to the local best buy to buy a cheap no brand 26" LCD ended up walking out with the Philips 26" HDTV LCD.

Great picture, nice design

Price was alittle high for a 26". Remote needs a back light

Nice HD Flat Panel

 

I must say, i saw this TV at walmart and the box didn't really mention features and stuff like others do, but when i took it out the box.

HDMI input, USB support for future upgrades, excelent picture and sound.

The bottom Stand makes weird noise when the TV is moved (lol), The remote control seemed unresponsive sometimes? weird.

Phillips 26PF5321D/37 26" LCD TV

 

Owned for 1 day and bought locally in DFW, TX for $720.

Price, quality, built-in HDTV tuner.

Lack of 1080p capability, tone controls, DVI input (minor).
