Philips 32PF5531D


Good sound system and good picture for the lower end priced LCD tv in this size

Image quality and sound is, in my opinion, the best feature. The integrated digital tuner means that I did'nt need my Freeview box. In terms of size, I am easily able to put my TV in my window, something, I could never dream of with almost all my other...

Really easy to set up. Good sound. Handles black well.

Looks great and the sound is excellent. Picture not as sharp as we thought for watching sport (especially football) but still good.

Picture quality for sport
