Philips 40PFL8605H review


Philips' first 3D TV arrives on our test bench, but can it impress in all three dimensions?

Excellent 2D picture quality ; Elegant design ; Lots of connections and features ; Superb remote control ; Good sound

Crosstalk issues ruin 3D ; It's expensive ; The reflective screen is prone to double imaging when viewed off-axis

This 40in edge LED-lit LCD TV marks Philips' debut into the world of 3D.

Very slim, Exceptional 2D pictures, Simple remote control

Reflective screen, 3D crosstalk, Screen input lag

Philips 8605H


Philips 8605H is one of Philips' high-end 2010 models with Perfect Pixel HD Engine, Ambilight, LED and NET TV that also features a internet browser. Philips 8605H is also Philips first 3DTV.

Response time; Black reproduction; HD picture; No clouding; Inputs pointing down or to the side; 3D picture quality

Standard settings; Shadow details; Color accuracy; Reflections from glass front

Philips 8605H has some interesting functionality. The internet services are still limited and not very useful at the moment. I was very interested in trying the internet browser but unfortunately it let me down. There’s neither flash support nor video...
