While this unit is too small for the whole family to enjoy in the living room it is perfect for the home office or den. The picture provided is sharp, free of defects and easy on the eyes. The Philips 17PF9945 offers style and a small footprint so it...

Philips 17PF9945 LCD TV

 

Philips' widescreen 17PF9945 LCD TV is HDTV ready, comes with Faroudja DCDi to eliminate onscreen jagged images and Virtual Dolby Pro Logic Sound.

Outlook: The 17PF9945 combines a solid feature set within a relatively thin and light unit. It won't appeal to high-end audiophiles, or anyone looking for a main TV set, but as a secondary smaller unit it appears to measure up quite well.

Product Specifications

DCDi enhances the quality of all images by eliminating the stair-step jagged edges so often seen on progressive scan displays. The result is natural images with exceptional detail. The high resolution of the 15PF9945 LCD FlatTV means that all of today's highest quality signals will look their best when displayed on this set. Simply connect to any HDTV decoder (DBS, Cable, or off air) to experience HDTV at it's best. 3 Line Digital Comb Filter provides the highest possible picture quality from R/F or Composite connections. Virtually eliminates horizontal and vertical hanging dots as well as dot crawl. Digital Crystal Clear III, a powerful package of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast and advanced 10 bit processing, offers 30% more contrast, more natural colors, and higher levels of detail. By continually adjusting picture settings over 60 times per second, Active Control Plus ensures that the viewing experience is always optimal.

Dolby processing circuitry for enhanced surround sound effect creates the sensation of Dolby Pro Logic without the hassle of additional rear speakers.
