Philips 46 PFL 9704


Excellent motion clarity., High contrast ratio., Low power consumption., Accurate 24p reproduction., Great sound., Rich multimedia capabilities

The operation is just plain awkward., Local Dimming artefacts

Philips presents an impressive package: excellent features, sharp motion sequences, rich blacks, decent colours, excellent sound, and low power consumption. With these under its belt, the 46 PFL 9704 is easy to forgive for its Local Dimming artefacts...

Philips 52 PFL 9704


The highest contrast we’ve ever measured., Loads of multimedia functions., High motion-clarity, accurate 24p., Superb sound

Unnatural colours., Artefacts from Local Dimming., Not very user friendly

Philips 46PFL9704


Particularly key is its use of direct LED backlighting with more than 200 separately controllable LED light clusters - an arrangement that has consistently produced the best LCD TV picture quality.

Capable of magnificent pictures, superb audio performer, great looking TV, massive feature count, class-leading multimedia features

It's very expensive, it doesn't have a Freeview HD tuner, and it takes quite a bit of effort to keep pictures looking their best
