Philips 37PFL5522D 37in LCD TV


LCD TVs seem to be getting cheaper and this 37 incher from Philips is no exception.

get you a dynamic contrast system, whereby the backlight can be dimmed automatically during dark scenes to produce a deeper black level response. Such systems are relatively common - almost ubiquitous - in LCD TVs higher up the pecking order than the...

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

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 -...

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

Hannspree Xm New York 19": Hannspree 'New York' 19" LCD Widescreen Monitor


The Hannspree 'New York' 19" LCD Widescreen Monitor is a fantastic monitor for it's price. The monitor is priced at the lower end of the market, but doesn't compromise one bit when it comes to the quality. I bought mine around 6 months ago for around...
