Philips 42PFL8404 42in LCD TV

 

The 42PFL8404 42in LCD TV isn't as expensive as other Philips sets, so have any corners been cut?

we looked at a while back, the 'Net TV' service on the 42PFL8404 is currently unique in the mainstream TV world for allowing you full access to the Internet, via a surprisingly usable interface.

For starters, its glamorous gloss black surround and striking see-through outer 'shroud' are embellished by Philips' Ambilight Spectra technology, which causes pools of soothing, immersive light sympathetic to the picture to spill from the TV's sides.

Excellent multimedia support, endless flexibility of picture set-up, impressive connectivity, solid sound, gorgeous design

Black levels could be better, some processing side effects, quite labour-intensive

Excellent image qulaity. Sound quality in the better bracket for TVs. Rather expensive, probably due to the excellent 'Ambilight' facility which otherwise is a worthwhile addition

The Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) is very clunky and not a patch on that included with my separate Freeeview PVR
