42PFL7432D/37

 

The first thing you'll notice about the Philips 42PFL7432D/37 (after struggling to plug your HDMI cable into a connector that's facing down and nearly impossible to see) is its Ambilight--two LEDs behind the set that bounce light off your back wall to...

Excellent menu setup Cool ambient light feature

Mediocre picture quality

Philips's remote is long, thin, and backlit, and it has plenty of empty space around its few buttons. But that ease of use comes at a cost: The remote isn't programmable

Happiness is a Philips television ....

 

Bought our Philips August 2008. Our first problem was that it kept turning itself on and off. In November 2008, a Philips technician advised us of the software update which we downloaded from their web site onto a flash drive. We then plugged the...

The worst TV Ever

 

I purchased two of these Televisions from Home Depot for 999.99. I also purchased the extended service plan (thank GOD). We were moving to a new home so didn’t hook the TV up until about November of 2007 (they were purchased in Sept of 2007). ...

None. I should have paid more and got better quality

Everything. The TV, the service, everything.

Very Impressed with this TV

 

Having experience with two Olevia LCDs a 26 and a 32... this TV was a splurge. The price was beating all others by, in some cases, 600 or more dollars, making the choice to purchase here easy. The delivery was fast, although it was only curbside...

Product Specifications
