Philips 42PFL9603 review


A masterpiece in TV design with the pricetag to match

Awesome pictures ; Great design ; Endless features

Doesn't come cheap ; It takes work to optimise

Okay, so it's expensive, but the best things in life usually are and you'll quickly realise it's worth every single penny

Philips 32PFL9603D review


The latest processing technology delivers a genuine watershed moment for LCD tech

Generous connections ; Ambilight enhances viewing experience ; Finely detailed and vibrant hi-def images ; Superb black levels

Settings need some tweaking to get the best effect

Philips' new video processing makes a big impact on this smallish HDTV

Philips 47PFL9603D review


This technology-rich 47in LCD TV is certainly one hell of a smooth operator

Excellent motion handling ; Great menu system ; Superb picture quality ; Impressive audio

Awkward remote scroll wheel

Superb picture quality and features make this a first class high-end set

Philips 37PFL9603D review


Review: Perfect Pixel processing makes this TV one to watch

No judder on Blu-ray ; Smooth motion shots ; Ambilight

Irritating remote control ; PC networking fails with video

Combining superb colours, high contrast and rock solid image stability, this a stunning 37in offering

No shrinking violet, this one. Does this Ambilight set light up our lives – or simply dazzle us with specs?

This TV takes some tweaking to get it performing well, but once you do, it's stunning

Philips' Cineos 32PFL9603D is very different from the average 32in LCD TV.

Philips Cineos 32PFL9603D/10 32in LCD TV


It may only be a 32-incher, but Philips' 32PFL9603 LCD TV is a genuine benchmark setter.

A round-up of all the breaking news and hands-on previews of the latest tech from IFA 2011 in Berlin.

Philips 47PFL9603D


It looks pretty and pictures are excellent, but it's a bit of a pain to set up and use

Gorgeous looking set with Ambilight on or off ; fantastic detail and edge definition ; one of the most balanced and natural colour performances around ; great spec ; decent sound

Pointless processing modes ; ill-conceived remote ; more noise than most

Philips Cineos 37PFL9603 High Definition LCD TV


Philips' 37-inch LCD HDTV boasts both slender design and superior image quality. Best4Reviews finds out if those are reason enough for it to be your next choice of TV

Slim design, clear screen surround makes overall set dimensions look smaller than they actually are without compromising on screen 'real estate', ambilight is both pretty and makes for a more immersive viewing experience, good clear immersive sound...

Slow to warm up and get going, pricey, control wheel on the supplied remote very (perhaps over) sensitive

So is it worth forsaking the price of a holiday to somewhere exotic for the Philips 37PFL9603 LCD TV instead? If, like me, you spend most nights slumped for a couple of hours in front of the goggle box, you may consider it money well spent. It's...

Philips 37PFL9603D


An awesome television in every way, the Philips 37PFL9603D has trillions of colours, amazing black levels and it glows! Like we said... awesome.

Boast more colours than a trillion rainbows

Erm, not a lot really. It's a bit pricey for a 37-inch screen
