42PFL7403D/F7

 

There's a lot to like about the Philips 42PFL7403D/F7. For a street price of $1100 (as of March 10, 2009), you get a 42-inch HDTV with USB-based multimedia capabilities. The only lower-priced 42-inch HDTV we've looked at recently, the Honeywell Altura...

Very good sound Multimedia playback via USB port

Disappointing picture quality Clumsy switching between inputs

Though the remote lacks backlighting and programming capabilities, it's quite good--small, light, and comfortable to hold. The buttons are well laid out, too. The remote includes picture-in-picture buttons, but the TV lacks picture-in-picture

Philips 42PFL7403D/F7 HDTV Review

 

Very good sound ; Multimedia playback via USB port

Disappointing picture quality ; Clumsy switching between inputs

The Philips 42PFL7403D/F7 has some nice touches for a low-cost HDTV, but it suffers in a crucial area: image quality.

Philips 47PFL7403D/F7 Review – 47-inch LCD HDTV

 

47PFL7403D/F7 is a fantastic model of the Philips 7000 LCD HDTV series. In terms of design, features and performance it looks like a clone of the 7403D/27 model in the line-up. You would not feel any difference between them at the first look. However,...

Philips 42PFL7403D

 

The Philips 42PFL7403D is a solid 1080p television, which shows particular strengths with HD content, but you'll need to tweak it to get the best results.

Great styling ; 100Hz actually works ; Deep black levels ; Four HDMI ports ; Great HD images

Picture presets are awful ; Noise reduction ineffective ; Poor off-axis viewing

Conclusion Given that the two TVs look alike it's natural to compare the 7000 and the 9000 series directly to each other. Both are very capable TVs, but given the relatively small price difference, we think that 9000 is actually better value with its...

Not really worth it

 

You're gambling that the guy who owned it before you properly described his problem to Philips. Mine came fast from Newegg, but after two hours of use the LCD started failing and displaying weird colors. I don't really blame anyone for this -- I can't...

Big enough. Cheap

Motion compensation is *massive overkill* on this TV. It made actors look like they were swimming in water. I turned it off, but then what is the point of 120hz? The Sharp Aquos I replaced this with after I returned it (see below) does a much better...

Why did I hesistate to buy this? Don't make the same mistake I did!

 

This HDTV just rocks!!! I was looking at getting this TV back when it was recertified and on sale for $1299 instead of $1799, but I waffled. Then when i checked back last week, the price had fallen to $999 w/ FREE SHIPPING. I could not let that deal...

Huge ; Ridiculous Price (might as well be stealing it right off the back of a truck) ; No dead pixels ; 120Hz ; 2ms Response Time ; Tons of features, HD Natural Motion, PixelPerfect, Custom Picture setups for movies, sports, tv..etc ; Plenty of...

I didn't buy it sooner ; No Picture-in-Picture ; Now my friends won't stop coming over ever satuday and sunday to watch the games

Great TV for the price.

 

Despite being refurb, everything seems new despite a few minor cosmetic blemishes. When I say the display is a notch down from the top brands, I simply mean do not expect the BEST PICTURE EVER from this tv. The display is still GREAT, and should be...

It's HUUUGE ; It's cheap ; Great picture ; Speakers are great.(if you use them) ; Plenty of display options to play with ; Plenty of connections ; No dead pixels ; 120 hz, 2ms, 1080p

No *dedicated* PC input.(can be fixed with the right cable) ; Slight risk buying refurb.(mine had cosmetic blemishes on both the front and back, but i don't notice them when the tv is on.) ; I would rank the display as a notch down from the "top brands

A beautiful mammoth of a display for windows and gaming.

 

A great purchase because it was so cheap and still basically brand new. Great for games, good for windows and everyday computing, I sit 3 feet away and its still wonderful. I have it hooked up to a high powered gaming PC (Q6600 @ 3.2ghz, 4gb DDR2 800,...

Huge, great colors when set up properly, no ghosting with the great 2ms response time, no discernible flickering (but it's actually 60hz, not 120hz as advertised the 120 is a cheap trick involving 60hz display + 60hz backlight, or something like that),...

Likes to change settings without telling you when switching modes and then forgets to change back when you revert to previous mode. I have to adjust the screen alignment every day because it changes it when I switch to console inputs. Apparently has...

Great TV

 

It took a little bit for Newegg to ship it, but with free freight shipping I'm not going to complain. My only complaint is with the delivery company here, they needed a 4 hour window, I couldn't give them one because of work so I had to pay for an...

Clear picture, nice features and easy to navigate the menus. It has 4 HDMI ports but I only need one since I run all my components through my receiver. The factory speakers were quite good, but I don't need them now that I finally arranged my 7.1...

They make light bulbs

 

I worked at Wal-Fart for 1 year and 3 months. The televisions were set up in electronics for 2 years. The Phillips brand televisions all went out within 2 weeks of each other all various models on display. They were the only brand of television in...
