Philips 42PFL9664H LCD TV review


Excellent web-ready 42" set with Perfect Pixel pyrotechnics

Excellent picture quality ; Well specified ; Great sound

Pricey ; The odd Freeview wobble

A beautifully conceived and executed set for the serious (and better-heeled) AV fan.

Philips 9000 Series hands-on


The Philips 9000 Series, which comes in 46-inch and 60-inch sizes, boasts eye-popping 1080p resolution pictures and is complemented by loads of 3D and Internet extras.

Glorious 1080p picture ; 3D and multi-player gaming ; Internet connection and apps ; IPad remote and viewing

Not everyone needs all the extras

Philips 9000 (32PFL9705/12) review


The 32-inch Philips 32PFL9705/12 is expensive and can be a little fiddly to use, but it delivers stunning picture quality and impressively beefy sound.

Extremely deep black levels ; Rich, vivid colours ; Great picture-processing ; Full internet access

Awkward remote and menu system ; No 3D or HD tuner ; The price

There's no doubt that £1,300 is an outrageous asking price for a 32-inch TV, especially as it lacks 3D support and an HD tuner, but the Philips 32PFL9705 produces the most stunningly rich and cinematic pictures we've seen on a 32-inch set. Sometimes,...

Philips 47PFL9664 47in LCD TV


The Philips 47PFL9664 47in LCD TV is expensive, but its excellent design, feature count and AV performance are worth it.

The 47PFL9664 looks expensive on paper, there’s no denying that. But by the time you've taken its slim design, unparalleled feature count and stunning AV performance into account, it actually starts to look like something of a bargain.

Philips 9000 (47PFL9664H/12) review


After immediately warming our cockles with its impressively slender design and eye-catching Ambilight system, the Philips 47PFL9664H/12 blew us away with one of the best all-round AV performances we've seen from any LCD TV to date

Looks great ; Picture quality is mesmerisingly good with standard- as well as high-definition material ; Sound quality is much better than that of most ultra-thin TVs ; Has more features than you'll ever use ; Allows full Internet access

Expensive ; Requires dedicated picture tweaking to keep getting the very best out of it

Conclusion The Philips 47PFL9664H/12 isn't cheap. But, by managing to combine stunning AV quality with a brilliant feature set and a fashionably svelte body, Philips has made its most loveable TV to date

This sleek, specced-up HD TV looks the business – so has Philips finally found some consistency?

Definitely one for your shortlist, this enticing flatscreen is almost flawless

Philips 42PFL9664


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

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

Philips 47PFL9664


This a premium product, for sure, but the cheaper Philips 47PFL7404 offers a performance that's too close for comfort

Excellent picture; one of the best flatscreen audio performances available; luxurious build and styling

Exceptional competition, not least from within Philips itself

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...
