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

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...

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

Unintuitive, fiddly remote control

Philips 42PFL7603D


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.

Philips 42PFL7603


Inside this cutting-edge bodywork, though, beats not Philips' latest Perfect Pixel image processing engine, but last year's Pixel Plus 3 HD engine. If you want the latest Perfect Pixel HD engine in the new Design Collection bodywork, you'll have to...

Frequently stunning picture quality, great audio, gorgeous looks, endless feature count, impressive connectivity

Slight motion blur, some contrasty edges look over-stressed, requires care with settings
