Philips 42PF7520D


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
