A great HD TV for a decent price


I came home from college for summer break and much to my surprise there in my living room was a brand new HDTV. Mind you, beforehand all our televisions were run of the mill televisions even though technology had far surpassed them. Of course I was ...

Sharp picture, great sound and stylish look

Makes me long for one of my own in my room

Phillips 42


Even though I have read some horror stories about this company's lack of support I decided to take a chance and buy one from Costco.

Nice design, pleasing to the eye.

Picture quality was not as good as some of the competition. Poor build quality. Very poor support.

42PF7421D 42" LCD TV (16:9, 1366x768, 1650:1, HDTV).


After reading lots of online reviews and comparisons and finally narrowing it down to prices and quality of picture and looks, we went with this model purchased from Sam's.

The Philips 32PF7321D looks like a keeper


We bought the Philips 32" Model 32PF7321D LCD-TV (identical to the 32PF7421D except in cabinet color) 3 days ago and it is INCREDIBLY GOOD. What a happy entertainment choice! Essentially this is an upgraded version of the lower-priced Magnavox ...

Great picture on HD, SD and SD mini-DVcamcorder.Very good sound with 5 band EQ.

Wish it had analog audio outputs, DVI input, i-link and cable card capability.
