Philips 37PFL5522D review


Philips has notched up some notable successes of late at the premium end of the market. But we have to say that its trip 'downtown' with the 37PFL5522D hasn't been entirely successful, as the set fails to escape from LCD technology's traditional...

Exceptionally cheap price tag ; Includes a version of Philips' Pixel Plus HD picture processing

Suffers with motion blur ; Slightly cheap looks ; Muted colours ; Lack of connectivity options

Conclusion We had high hopes that enough of Philips' high-end grandeur would be able to filter down to this budget TV to make it something quite special. But in the end, Philips has had to cut a few corners too many to get the price so low, leaving the...

Philips 37PFL5522


It's the least glamorous looker, for starters; nothing more than a featureless black rectangle, truth be told. And it's the least well connected, including just two HDMIs of the old v1.2 generation and no dedicated D-Sub PC port. This means you have to...

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

Toshiba 42X3030D: Toshiba 42x3030D review


I bought this TV solely for use with my PS3 to play games and films in 1080p, and it really has been worth it. Very easy to set everything up with my Virgin box and the PS3, it's got connectivity for 2 HDMI cables (as well as the usual array of scart...

Excellent picture, great value for money, good size

Sound isn't excellent
