Not Satisfied


Not a big fan of this TV. I did not really like the image quality. I switched this TV out after having a "trial" period for roughly 5 days. I ended up trading it in for a LGLM669. I got it cheaper, 2" bigger, and it has better image quality.

Philips 40PFL8606T


Good looking TV but didn't get much time to know much about it as I had to send it back for a small but annoying fault

Polystyrene ball stuck between the front glass and the LCD screen. \should have been spotted during last test
