Test Bench: Philips Ambilight 42PF9731D 42-inch LCD HDTV

 

After calibration it was more accurate, at 114K average variation. In the default maximum contrast setting I measured a blinding 186 footlamberts peak brightness, but I later reduced it to around 45 for home theater viewing.

Philips Cineos 32PF9731D 32in LCD TV

 

If you can live without the Full HD panel, Philips' 32in Cineos is every bit as good as its 37in sibling.

With its lovely looks, awesome features list, reams of connection options, surprisingly affordable price and above all sensational pictures, this 32PF9731D is about as irresistible as mid-sized LCD TVs get.

Philips 32PF9731D review

 

Philips' 32PF9731D sets a new benchmark for LCD technology. You'll have to pay for the privilege of class-leading design and performance but you won't be left feeling short-changed

Flashy design ; Lots of connections ; User-friendly features ; Amazing image quality

High price ; Image can stutter on slow movement

Sound performance is impressive for a flat screen, with plenty of detail and expression, although the screen's dazzling image quality deserves to be accompanied by a surround setup to complete the ultimate home cinema experience
