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 46PFL9704 review

 

The Philips 46PFL9704 is now a discontinued model.

Stunning looks and build ; effective depth-enhancing Ambilight ; detailed, punchy pictures all-round ; great sound

New rivals offer even greater black insight and motion ; no Freeview HD

It’s still superb, but the Philips should no longer be the only telly on your shopping list

Philips 46PFL9704H review

 

Philips' second-generation LED TV leaves us awestruck

Quality doesn't come cheap ; Colour presets aren't great

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
