Philips 52PFL9632D review


A largely luscious LCD screen that refuses to stand in the shadows of the Aurea

Great features ; Superb HD pictures ; Good build quality ; Looks fantastic

Philips 42PFL9632D review


The most watchable super-size LCD TV we've ever seen

Deep blacks ; Smooth motion ; Ambilight’s wow factor

Slight shimmering around fast-moving objects ; Tricky to use


Expert review by:

Philips 47PFL9632D review


Philips' Perfect Pixel Engine goes large.

Picture clarity ; Traditional Ambilight ; Connectivity

The processing is occasionally caught out by small, fast-moving objects ; Care needed with setup

Forget Pixel Plus, people. This time, Philips' pixels are apparently perfect

Extensive connections ; Outstanding pictures ; Good black levels

Some ghosting on fast moving objects

Philips 47PFL9632D LCD television review


Philips has been known for producing some of the most dramatic and awe-inspiring screens in the HD business, in large due to the impact of its patented ambilight technology. Last year we reviewed the impressive 42PF, which sports full Ambilight...

Superb performance, dramatic impact from the ambilight, available dirt cheap (if you're lucky)

Lacks some important connectivity, absence of preset environment modes

The 47-inch screen from Philips' new Ambilight range is a superb display, leaving much of its competition in the LCD market in the shade

Philips 32PFL9632D/10 review


32in LCD TVs such as Mirai's DTL-832E600 (reviewed What's New, Shopper 244) are now available for as little as £350 including VAT, so this 32in model from Philips was always going to have a tough time justifying its high price.

Philips Cineos 52PFL9632D/10 52in LCD TV


Bigger really is better when it comes to Philips' Cineos 52PFL9632D/10 LCD TV.

The bigger Philips' PFL9632D TVs get, the more we like them. So given that the 52PFL9632D is the largest set in the range, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that we like it a lot. A very lot. Try one for yourself and see if you...

Philips 47PFL9632D review


Philips appears to have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at producing better pictures from the 47PFL9632D -- and its efforts have paid off handsomely in the form of some of the best big screen LCD pictures to date. Add this to the TV's great...

Picture quality is generally outstanding ; Great looks ; Ambilight ; Good connectivity ; Immense feature count

Requires care at setup stage ; Occasional processing artefacts

Conclusion As with all really complex things, the 47PFL9632D demands more user knowledge and TLC than most TVs. But provided you show it the respect it deserves, it pays you back in fine style with some of the most spectacular pictures yet seen on a...

Philips Cineos 52PFL9632D review


If big, beautiful hi-def pictures are what you're after, this 52-incher delivers the goods. Bold but realistic colours, strong black levels and the smoothest motion we've seen on an LCD, married with good connectivity and design, make this one of the...

Excellent motion handling and black levels ; Hi-def connectivity

No PC input ; 4:3 material often has to be stretched out

Conclusion While it's not as much as a statement product as Aurea, the 52PFL9632D is just as fantastic when it comes to performance. Feed this television a diet of hi-def movies, TV and games and you'll be rewarded with some of the cleanest, liveliest...

Philips Cineos 42PFL9632D review


The Philips Cineos 42PFL9632D is a great TV with superb picture quality and the addition of Ambilight -- if you like that sort of thing. Our only major complaint is that some of the picture processing distorts the otherwise excellent image quality

Picture quality ; Sound quality, styling ; Ambilight

Price ; Lack of PC input ; Picture processing looks bad at times

It's probably fair to say that Ambilight adds to the cost of this TV. Although you can probably pick one of these up slightly over £1,400, the RRP is £1,800 so it will be up to you to decide if you think the extra features are worth a premium over a...
