Awesome

 

This a great LCD TV for the price... Sorry Newegg but I got mine at Office Depot for $650. Lots of inputs to choose from along with 1080i

Do need to change some settings from the out of box settings to really make the TV shine

WOW!

 

I got the 42" version from newegg before they quit selling them and I'm glad I did, sweet deal on the last of their inventory. Blu-ray is NOT an option on this TV its a necessity! I have an HD set-top box, PS3, and surround sound hooked up to HDMI...

The picture is simply amazing! I have MANY devices hooked up to my TV and is very easy to switch between devices. I used up the three HDMI inputs quickly and actually need 1 more. Great price! Phillips makes great TVs. User friendly, TV sets up to your...

I had 1 stuck pixel though you can't tell and have to get super close to see it and that only if your looking for one. The speakers are pretty good but not awesome

It's Great

This is a great TV. It arrived in perfect condition and right on time. A feature I enjoy is the auto-adjust so the picture fills the screen. Another great feature I enjoy having is the headphone jack. This is awesome for a TV in the bedroom, (no more...

The mounting holes for wall mounting are not centered for an armature mount, but it's an easy work around

Love My 37' HDTV!

 

I'll go back to Phillips and buy my next HDTV which will probably be sometime in the next year.

Understanding what I was buying made this purchase easy. I had studied and looked at a lot of TVs before I bought this one. The picture quality is outstanding. The setup was easy and the price was perfect ... what else can you ask for ; I purchased...

Philips 37" 1080i LCD HDTV - 37PFL5322D/37

 

Newegg plug: Best Service, Best customer care, fast shipping, no damaged products ever. Great on their warranties and RMA's as well.

Great quality. 1080i for this price?! awesome! good stock speaker sound. very easy to set up 3 AV channels 2 HDMI and a PC connec. Very huge viewing angle. Great for gaming and movies

Only one I can think of is that when on automatic, the display settings change from wide screen to full screen and back again on DVD's. But automatic is an unnecessary feature any way. Change it when you watch a wide screen movie yourself. Not that hard

Love this TV!

 

Fantastic Picture and Sound! It was easy to set up and get running. My wife and I exploried all types of TV's and found that this product really delivers on the quality for the little money paid. I would recommend this TV to any of my friends......

The TV will jump between Wide screen and the normal, on Automatic.....But besides that, I have no complants.

Outstanding Value

 

Very impressed with this TV so far. HD channels look absolutely fantastic, and show virtually no tearing or bleeding even during scenes of high speed action. (I can see a tiny bit, but I believe most viewers wouldn't notice at all.) The 7 available...

Picture quality is top-notch, supports everything up to and including 1080i, 2 HDMI + 5 other inputs, sound quality is up to standard with this level television. Decent selection of adjustmets available via menus. Case/cabinet and stand design is very...

Minor issues/wishes: Auto-adjust only for PC input. Would be nice to have that feature available to all inputs for initial setup purposes. Picture in Picture would have been a nice add-on. DVI input for PC connection would have been nice, but analog...

Great TV

 

This has been a great TV for my family. It takes just about any input you can throw at it except DVI/VGA, which I bought a DVI-HDMI cable for. Right now I have a digital cable box and HTPC (1920x1080p!) hooked up to it and don't regret the purchase at all

Standard TV doesn't look so good on it, but I didn't buy it to watch that. The speakers aren't as bad as some reviewers have said but they're still not great

Hard to Beat

 

Love the wide selection of inputs. I use this for a computer moniter and a tv. I can play on the pc from 7 feet away and enjoy a terrific display.

Great picture for the price. I was able to compare this model side by side to Toshiba and Sony. Although Toshiba and Sony had better picture quality (if you looked real close) the difference was hardly worth the price difference. I have had this tv for...

Great TV! Bad Sticker!

 

Philips says to get the sticker off take a blow dryer and heat up the sticker on low heat untill it peels away gently

This TV has the best picture/price quality I have ever seen. It compares to any sony I saw on the wall for atleast 500 dollars less

Sticker in the top corner of the TV that is hard to remove. Also we had to return one to best buy within the first week for power supply issues and the second TV was sent back to philips directly and we received a brand new TV......... Thankfully I...
