Philips 42PFL9664 review

 

Utterly brilliant. £1500 might sound a tad pricey but this is one of the most exciting sets we've seen in years

Astonishing detail and sharpness creates brilliant images ; spot-on colour balance ; largely excellent motion handling ; robust sound

Not the easiest set to calibrate ; some offer slightly greater black depth

£1500 might sound like a lot of money, but just one look at the Philips in action proves it’s worth every penny

Philips 9000 Series Ultra HD TV review, crystal clear?

 

Ultra-high definition, UHD, 4K ─ call it what you want. TV manufacturers are pushing into the new technology hard after 3D TV sales were a tad disappointing. This has resulted in increasingly affordable televisions that promise detail far beyond that...
