Philips 7000 Series LCDs

 

Philips debuted its 7000 FlatTV series at CES. This new line ranges from 19 to 52 inches (diagonal), and features a rounded edge surrounded by an acrylic edge, which not only gives the set a less

Possibly divisive styling ; Surprisingly rubbishy remote control

Philips Cineos 42PFL7603D review

 

Philips' 42PFL7603D is a larger but slightly older version of the 32PFL9613D, and has the same stunning image quality.

Philips Cineos 42PFL7603D review

 

This is a lovely looking TV with superb HD performance and great sound at a sensible price -- the only real downside is the slightly ropey Freeview performance. Also, Ambilight isn't anywhere near as involving as it is on the 9703

Design ; Sound ; HD picture quality ; Connectivity ; Affordable

Freeview picture quality isn't brilliant ; Ambilight is sluggish

If you want better value for money, look at the Panasonic plasma range, which has 1080p TVs, some with built-in freesat, that cost significantly less than this TV. If you want an LCD, check out the Z-series Toshiba TVs or perhaps one of the new...

Philips 42PFL7603D 42in LCD TV

 

The 42PFL7603D is the first LCD TV we've seen from Philips' 'Design Collection', and John's rather impressed.

Whether you're admiring the 42PFL7603D's stunning design, basking in the tranquil aura of its Ambilight system, lapping up its terrific pictures, being assaulted (in a good way) by its terrific audio power, or simply wondering how it can offer so much...

Undeniably brilliant performance, coupled with unique style and features

Unique style ; Ambilight technology ; Full HD ; incredible realism ; smooth motion, great detail ; good tuner

A touch more expensive than rivals ; black levels not always rock solid

Expert review by:

Philips 42PFL7603D

 

A stylish, feature-packed set that looks the part and performs to an exceptionally high standard

Elegant styling ; clean, detailed images ; excellent Freeview picture ; natural colours ; sounds decent

Unintuitive, fiddly remote control

The Philips 42PFL7603D is the ultimate flat TV from Philips. Its 106-centimetre screen boasts a 1920x1080 resolution. It uses various technologies such as the Natural Motion, which eliminates flickering, thus, creating equal movements. It also has the...

Philips, like Samsung, Sony and Toilet Duck, is a household name now, but this 42-inch LCD isn't even a top-tier model, yet it looks every bit as good as some of its rivals. With no fewer than four HDMI ports, a full 1080p screen and two-channel...

Philips' latest picture enhancement tech, Perfect Pixel HD Engine, has been left out in favour of the older Pixel Plus 3 HD jiggery pokery. That means no Clear LCD for crisp moving images and no 100Hz mode for ultra-smooth motion. Also, having seen the...

While it's not one of Philips best screens, this is still streets ahead of most mid-range LCD televisions thanks to its gorgeous design and solid all-round performance.

Excellent budget offering from Philips ..

We can't help thinking that some seriously good LCD TV's from Philips have been overlooked in the past. This shouldn't be the case with the 42PFL7603D which presents an all round performance that is hard to beat for the price.
