Philips Cineos 52 PFL 9632 D/10


Apart from the picture's rich contrast, colors are faithfully reproduced and appear natural., The "Ambilight" feature makes the picture appear even larger than it is, and also enhances the viewing experience by making it more relaxed., A USB memory...

Motion appears smeared and streaky., Original 24p cinematic material is not interpreted correctly and introduces errors

The huge Philips 52 PFL 9632 D/10 combines high-contrast full HD pictures with an appealing "Ambilight" room ambient lighting system. High brightness and natural color rendition are the strengths of this LCD flat-panel, but motion lacks clarity, and...

Philips 37 PFL 9632 D/10


Well suited to both home-theater and digital presentations - the Philips delivers full HD resolution even when connected to a PC., Precise factory calibration ensures sharp pictures with natural colors., Relaxed viewing and atmospheric lighting with...

Original cinematic frame rate is no great friend of the Philips, which does flounder a bit with 24p Blu-ray material., Motion sharpness is lower if viewing content from a 1080i HDTV set-top box

The 37 PFL 9632 D/10 is a great combination of innovative "Ambilight"-technology, chic design and a good, but sadly not perfect, picture. Philips has high ambitions being one of the market leaders in television production. It is trying to set itself...

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

Get ready to empty your wallet

Big on screen and big on price, but the HD picture quality is to die for

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

Packed with the most advanced LCD technology around, this 42in produces the best picture quality this side of a top-end plasma

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

If you keep an eye to the contrast levels and placement of the set, this is a very rewarding LCD for the money

Philips 32PFL9632D review


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

Extensive connections ; Outstanding pictures ; Good black levels

Some ghosting on fast moving objects

Groundbreaking picture quality combined with features galore at a good price.

Philips 47PFL9632D LCD television - Pocket-lint


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

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

Lacks some important connectivity, absence of preset environment modes

Philips has produced an astounding LCD display in the 47PFL96. Aside from some minor issues with connectivity and control we were bowled over by the impact of the ambilight, excellent image quality and some impressive sound. Surely this will be one of...

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 32PFL9632D 32in LCD TV


John looks at Philips' new Perfect Pixel Engine and comes away very impressed.

While the 32PFL9632D's pictures may not yet represent complete perfection, they get pretty darned close to it, and might certainly be argued to deliver the best pictures yet seen on a 32in LCD TV. Especially since they put to the sword more fully than...
