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.

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
