PHILIPS 47PFL 7422 LCD TV

 

It's about time we reviewed a large screen high-end LCD TV, for two reasons: it's Diwali shopping season, and it's been a while since we saw some real 1080p action...

All said, this is a good TV, to say the least. It performs like a pro, and full HD is good thing (I can't wait for the formats to arrive here in a big way). This device can be considered if budget is not a problem, though it performs best only in its...

Don't do it. You will regret it...be sure of that.

 

If you have 2,000 bucks that you just can't wait to get rid of, then this is the TV for you. If you want something you won't have to fuss with again, steer clear of all Philips TV sets. They have serious flaws in power management and the company will...

Serves well as dust collector

Life expectancy of these TV's is roughly that of an ordinary light bulb. With normal usage, this TV will fail within 2 years, guaranteed

I also had Defective Display Panel(s)

 

I bought this from Costco in 5/08. Fortunately they give a 2 yr warranty (1 more than the mfr warranty). Like haleyjustice, the right 1/3 of my screen went black in 2/09. The repair shop replaced the display panel. When the repairman brought it back...

Philips 52PFL7422D/37

 

This is my first flat panel TV and I am elated with the quality of the product. I spent several hours playing with all the features and settings and then easily updated the firmware via the USB connection. The setup was nearly automatic as it asked my...

Excellent picture regardless of lighting conditions. Initial setup is easily accomplished and making changes to the settings is quick and straight forward. Numerous input and output connections

Remote is very light weight and lacks adequate direct feature access. The quick access channel selector blocks out a good portion of the screen
