Philips 37PFL5522D review

 

A cheap and basic LCD option from Philips

It’s cheap ; Sharp HD pictures ; Good black levels

Colour tone issues ; Motion blur ; Has a tendency to exaggerate source noise

A solid effort to deliver a good budget option, but it’s got too many flaws to whole-heartedly endorse

Philips 32PFL5522D review

 

It won't win any awards, but it's not one to be ignored

Very affordable ; Good connections ; Easy to set up

Some motion shuddering

Not the last word in flat TV tech, but a respectable performer for a low price

Remarkably cheap, HD pictures look crisp, good black level response

Colours can look washed out, motion blur, processing side effects, poor viewing angle, weak sound

Good all round performance compromised by poor motion handling capabilities ..

The Philips 32PFL5522D is a good all round budget performer, with excellent black level performance with outstanding HD and SD pictures for the price. If it wasn't for the poor motion handling capabilities, this screen would present a real bargain -...
