Philips Ambilight 32PFL9604 television review

 

Occasionally we come across a TV that can take days to review properly, and the feature-packed Philips 32PFL9604 is certainly one of them. A diminutive 32-inch size, this aluminium-framed LCD TV is also one of the most tempting - not because of its...

Net TV, connectivity, best-ever HD pics, awesome speakers

Picture settings hidden, remote needs more buttons, expensive

Encompassing everything from internet access to Wi-Fi connection to a computer, the 32PFL9604 proves, above all, to be a stellar performer with any video source

Philips 9000 (37PFL9604H/12) review

 

It may be expensive but everything about the Philips 37PFL9604H/12 -- from its metallic bodywork and impressive connectivity to its innumerable features and sublime pictures -- screams quality

Attractive and unusual design ; Huge array of features ; Five HDMI ports ; Outstanding picture and sound quality ; Full Internet access

Expensive ; More labour-intensive than most TVs

Conclusion The Philips 37PFL9604H/12 isn't a TV for the technologically or financially faint of heart. It's been uncompromisingly designed by and for people who value raw AV quality above all else -- no matter how much time and money it costs them

Philips 32PFL9604H review

 

As the latest HD TV in Philips' Cineos line, the 32PFL9604H has all the features we've come to expect, including network connectivity, HD Natural Motion and a 100Hz refresh rate.

A feature-packed LCD TV with amazing motion-processing technology, it suffers from dull reds and a high price.

Philips 32PFL9604H

 

The 32-inch, 1080p 32PFL9604H LCD TV is a striking set for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's beautifully built. Secondly, unlike most rival 'online' sets, it offers full and enjoyable Internet access. Finally, it's picture and sound quality are truly...

Picture and sound quality are outstanding ; it&apos ; s got more features than we&apos ; ve had hot dinners ; online functionality works surprisingly well ; looks very attractive

Surfing the Internet isn&apos ; t as easy as it is on a PC ; no keyboard or mouse option is planned ; steep price for a 32-inch TV ; care needs to be taken with its picture settings

With the online functionality of most TVs currently leaving us underwhelmed, it's really great to find the Philips 32PFL9604H giving us the surfing freedom we crave. But significant though the 32PFL9604H's online features are, it's ultimately the TV's...

Philips 32PFL9604 32in LCD TV

 

The 32PFL9604 is yet another high quality and innovative LCD TV from Philips.

Philips hasn't had the best time in the press recently, with tales of plummeting sales and earnings. But if the 32PFL9604 is anything to go by, it looks like the brand will at least have another clutch of positive reviews to help keep its pecker up...

Philips 37PFL9604

 

Philips certainly delivers enough to justify the price. Money no object? This is the 37in set you should select

Full HD spec with Ambilight and integrated wireless; premium build and finish; class-leading picture and sound

You have to pay for that performance

Expert review by:

Philips 32PFL9604

 

The '9604 is one of the best 32in sets we've seen this year, but it doesn't push performance to a level that can justify its price

Huge aesthetic appeal ; sophisticated menus ; feature-packed ; fantastic with Freeview and Blu-ray images

Price, price, did we mention the price

If you fancy browsing the web on your TV, then the Philips 37PFL9604H will be right up your super highway. It's equipped with Net TV, which gets you online over a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection, but unlike most other web-enabled TVs the Philips lets you...
