Philips 42PFL6805H Econova review

 

Gorgeous, genuinely green and surprisingly effective LED TV

Eco credentials ; Looks lovely ; Genuinely ingenious design ; Good all-round performance ; Brilliant remote control

Not cheap for a 42-inch TV ; No Freeview HD tuner ; Limited multimedia tools ; Pictures can be a bit noisy or processed

A worry with the Econova might have been that it was a more interesting experiment than a genuinely appealing TV, but it is far prettier and a much better performer than expected.

Philips 42PFL6805H Econova

 

This 42in LED LCD TV proves you don't have to wear recycled paper underpants to show your love for the Earth's well-being.

Elsewhere, you can turn the TV completely off via a zero-power switch; you can ‘mute’ the screen if you only need to hear the audio; there are all sorts of light meter and auto-off settings; and finally you can call up a simple onscreen display of how...

The Philips Econova's green creds are heroic but does it compromise on picture quality to help save Mother Earth?

An elegant, high-quality television that also happens to be one of the most environmentally friendly gadgets you can buy

Philips Econova 6000 (42PFL6805H) review

 

The 42-inch Philips Econovo 42PFL6805H is very expensive and lacks some important features, but it is also kinder to the environment than most TVs, looks great and has very good picture quality.

Low power consumption ; Good black levels ; Rich colours ; Smooth motion ; Beautiful design

No Internet features ; No HD tuner ; SD pictures can look a little rough around the edges ; Pricey

Overall, there's much to like about the Philips Econova 42PFL6805. It's kinder to the environment than many TVs, yet it looks supremely stylish and delivers very good picture quality. It's just a shame that saving the planet has such a high price tag,...

Philips 42PFL6805HE

 

It doesn't offer the very best picture quality in its class, but Philips' Econova is a great compromise between eco friendliness and outright performance

Lovely styling; recycled and recyclable; remarkably low power consumption for a flatscreen; likeable pictures from all sources; stable upscaling of SD; decent sound

Lacks the detail, colour neutrality and motion handling of the best in class; no Freeview HD

European Green TV 2010-2011 - Philips 42PFL6805

 

In its quest for energy efficiency, the Philips 42PFL6805 reaches an all time low consuming just 40 Watts in eco-mode. The set demonstrates a holistic approach to eco-design, evident in many details such as the unorthodox product architecture,...
