Philips 42PF5421 review

 

An affordable price tag on a feature-heavy set

Good value ; Impressive contrast

No digital TV tuner

Provided you've got good quality sources this TV represents outstanding value for money

Philips 42PF5421 42in LCD TV

 

Can this budget 42in Philips TV live up to the standard set by its 37in cousin?

The key specs claimed by Philips for the 42PF5421 show an HD-friendly native resolution of 1,366 x 768, an actually slightly higher than average brightness output of 550cd/m2, but a worryingly low contrast figure of 800:1. Let’s hope this doesn’t...

Philips 42PF5421D/0

 

HD picture quality very good (even though only 720i)

Large speakers located on each side renders the TV extremely wide. HD only 720i. TV cabinet vibrates at certain sound frequencies.
