Review: Philips 40PFL8664H


This 40-incher shines with its sleek design and rich feature set, but can be a bit lacking in the audio-visual department.

Bright, saturated and sharp pictures; good black level and shadow; ultraslim and stylish design; content-rich Net TV function; cool ambilight function; DLNA-ready; strong multimedia playback; relatively affordable

100Hz causes occasional motion artifacts; lackluster sound; poor auxiliary input placements; no backlight adjustment

The Philips 40FPL8664H is a stylish LED-edgelit LCD TV which is extremely well-endowed for its price, but could have been better in the audio-visual department.
