Philips 37 PF 9641 D/10


Great full black - something few LCDs can manage., A good factory setup always helps - the Philips 37 PF 9641 D/10's picture is well balanced., Rich feature-set, including integrated wall lighting

Absurd - the sharpness enhancement actually reduces picture detail., There is no picture format button on the remote., The colors could be more neutral

Philips 32PF9641D review


Price, function and performance in perfect balance

Impressive pictures ; Features galore

SD sources can look slightly grainy

Next to most other TVs in its price bracket the 32PF9641D is an outstanding effort

Philips 32PF9641D 32in LCD TV


Philips doesn't only produce great high-end TVs, its mid-range models are also worth shouting about.

Whatever philosophical doubts we may have about Philips’ current TV policy from a branding point of view, if it keeps resulting in TVs as good for their money as the 32PF9641D, from a punter’s perspective we'll have no problems with it whatsoever!

Philips 32PF9641D


This model lacks the ClearLCD technology used on current high-end Philips models for improving motion and black level handling, and it uses last year's Pixel Plus 2 HD image processing

Good to look at

No dedicated D-Sub PC input

Philips' latest LCD range has proved a touch hit and miss, but this one definitely belongs in the hit department

Review of Philips 32PF9641D flat screen TV


Speakers tucked below the screen make for a compact, but sombre looking television. With high-definition footage this television is the best here - especially with Amblight activated. DVD is also impressive, but Freeview is less good. The sound has lots

Philips 32PF9641D: Widescreen dream


I'm afraid to say that we love T.V in our house and it is usually turned on as soon as we get home from work and not turned off again until bedtime. (I know, I know, it's BAD for you!) So when our trusty Toshiba brokedown we were in a hurry to replace...

Lovely picture, ambilight feature, looks good

Philips 32PF9641D


the ambilight is a very nice extra and it puts out reasonable sound for its size

typical lcd image problems with fast moving images and a stupidly located socket on the telly to connect the power to.
