Philips 32PF7520D

 

Until we can get our hands on Philips' eagerly awaited flagship 9380 flat TV range, the new 32PF7520D represents the pinnacle of the company's current LCD TV line. And it's easy to see why it commands a premium - albeit not as substantial a one as we...

design, picture sharpness, colouration

limited connectivity, digital tuner pics can look noisy

There's cheap, and then there's Philips' 42PF7520D. In fact, by undercutting even the other eminently affordable screens we've included with here by a cool ?400, the 42PF7520D might just be the bargain of the year?

Aggressive price, nice looks, decent sonics

Picture very average, stingy socketry
