The picture - playing through a bluray DVD player it is simply astounding. OK, I'm no expert but I cannot find fault with it. The contrast / brightness levelling is acceptable and the additional Phillips own motion flow software is really worth having....

Not much I do not like about this television, a minor criticism is that the remote control can be a little awkward and appears to have a design which ensures I always seem to have it upside-down.

Love the ambilight. Sounds like a gimmick, but it does add to the viewing experience. Very good picture. Sound fine, but I've added a surround sound system.

None that I've found.

Always having bought Sony in the past it would really have to be an outstanding product to make the change. This TV certainly did not make me regret my purchase and move from Sony. Quality of both sounds and picture is perfect. Great amount of inputs...

Basic plasic remote control. Unfortunaly gone are the days of high end aluminium remotes.
