This is an awesome HDTV with a studio quality picture.


This is a very high quality TV with many advanced technologies in it, including LED back lighting. It has excellent contrast the black display is the best I've ever seen in an LCD HDTV. The color is exceptionally vivid and with nearly perfect balance...

It is VERY important to do the firmware update as recommended by Philips, but it's easy. Simply go to the Philips support website and download the most recent firmware file for the TV to a flash drive. Unzip the file on the flash drive and stick the flash

You will probably need to call up Philips and ask them to send you the Net Access dongle which apparently did not get shipped with most sets of this model. You will need it to use the internet connectivity features of this TV. I had to call them but they

Great Netflixy TV


Digital Natural Motion" is creeptastically disturbing, and absolutely awful for gaming: immediately turned it off. The auto-contrast/brightness with light sensor, on the other hand, takes a little getting used to, but is great. It would be nice if the...

SO BIG O_O. (I moved to this from a 24".) ; Size, weight, brightness: yay LED LCD ; Clear picture with good colors ; I haven't noticed any motion blur or artifacts, in movies, sports, or video games ; Very bright and viewable, even with bright sunlight...

Built-in speakers suck, but I guess that's been true for any TV, ever ; Full-screen full-brightness blue-and-white PHILIPS start-up image is godawful blinding when you turn the TV on in a dark room. Would be nice if you could disable it, or it would at...

good value at sale


They precalled me at 12 and said they could deliver the product at 4pm I was a bit skeptical because as field tech for a cable company, I know there is always a difference what is said on the phone and what is done in the field. The delivery guy...

solid television I got this TV on a sale. Lots of HDMI connections. Picture quality is decent. Thin and the perfect size for my living room

The settings interface looks cheap but does the job. The digital natural motion needs to be fiddled with once in a while. For the original price i would have hoped for a wifi connection, but it only has ethernet connection. screws are hidden in the box

Philips 40" 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV 40PFL7705D/F7


Very happy...for the price. Paid over $2000 for the projection tv 10 years ago. $699 for this set WITH the Netflix streaming and LED lighting is just amazing. And I can lift and move the tv by myself.

Coming from a 10+ year old rear projection set this is a huge improvement. Colors are bright and picture sharp ; Built in Netflix functionality is great...we pulled a software update and then went through the registration process (which was painless)...

None at this point

Great Value


Had to run the home theater from the coax audio out on the TV, not from the DVD. There was a lag from the TV processing the signal. So the picture was late. Perfect now.

I picked up its older brother a FL750 from a local warehouse club. An offer I couldn't refuse. It was sitting next to two other brands running the same loop. I couldn't tell the difference except about $700. So I made the plunge. I ordered the...

None that I have found
