Philips 19" 720p LCD HDTV - 19PFL5422D


Great T.V. minus the annoying features I mentioned. If you like quick channel surfing like me then this is probably not the best T.V. for you.

Great for only 800:1 contrast ratio. Nice functionality with a bunch of different settings. Simple interface as well.

Everytime you change a channel, a screen pops up covering about a quarter of the top left screen telling you some obscure info. There's NOTHING you can do about this. Even the manufacturer says you can't remove this feature which makes 0 sense to me....

Philips 19" LCD High Definition TV, What Happened?


We have had good luck with Philips products in the past. We are going on 20 years with an old 27" Philips model and while our Samsung HDTV has been a dream, we saw a close out model for this Philips model, 19" LCD HDTV and decided to go for it. My wife...

Good picture, good sound, nice price.

Did a pixel blow up? Small dot on the screen.

Got the white version: Excellent!


If you need a relatively small LCD, this set is excellent. I actually have the white version, model no. 19PFL5402D 37. We have it in our bedroom, where it easily fits on top of a chest of drawers. At only about 18 lbs., it doesn't take much to support ...

Good looking set, outstanding image, good sound, compact size, adequate connection ports.

HDMI limitations, connection ports difficult to access on the rear, not quite true widescreen.
