Philips 42PFL5603D 42-inch LCD HDTV Review and Prices

 

One of the ironies about the green movement is that while many people are cutting energy consumption, reducing waste and trying to be more environmentally friendly, they're still buying very large TVs. Traditionally, the larger the set means the more...

Philips 52PFL5603D Eco TV

 

For the eco-friendly guy who'll skimp on plastic bags but not his TV viewing experience, Philips has the solution: the Eco TV.

Philips latest product in their line of flat panel HDTVs addresses one major issue with today's models, and that is power consumption. Deemed as the Eco TV, the 52PFL5603D might be a lot of screen, but it actually uses less power than any flat panel TV...

PHILIPS 47" 1080p Full HD LCDTV w/Pixel Plus 3 HD 47PFL5603D/F7

 

now i didnt buy this on new egg but was going to till i found a x-mas special else where, but this is a great price and would recommend to any one looking to get a HD LCD TV

Great viewing angles, the setup function when you first turn on the tv makes the picture to what you want with just a few selections and not having to try and adjust each setting. The auto crop for black bars is nice to resize non HD channels so they...

The auto crop is a little slow at times and will some times adjust for commerials and u may miss a little on the show, it also doesnt work on left/right bars just top/bottom so HD channels will look a little funnie when non HD show are played on them...

WOW Great TV!!

 

Swivel base is definitely a plus. Low power usage settings. As always, Newegg is the best.

We finally made the upgrade to HD. This TV was a WOW right out of the box! Surprised the wife. She did not see it till it was setup and running. It has a bright screen no matter what the room lighting is. Lots of input connections. It looks great in...
