Expert review by : John Archer (

Philips 40PFL7605H


This 40in LED LCD television lacks a Freeview HD tuner, but its excellent picture more than makes up for that.

Picture quality beats price-point rivals ; Attractive design, screen only 30mm thick ; Great connectivity, plus net TV

No Freeview HD tuner ; No Power Pixel HD engine ; Some visible artefacting

As usual with a Philips TV, you can royally screw the 40PFL7605H’s pictures up if you’re not careful with its processing options. But honestly, it’s really not that difficult to learn your way round. And once you’ve figured out what works for your...

Philips 40PFL7605 review


This LCD from Philips is a great television, but minor flaws, including lack of Freeview HD, prevent it from being truly exemplary

Brilliant looks ; lovely remote ; great sound ; pictures with awesome detail and contrast ; Ambilight

Imperfect motion ; no Freeview HD ; rather fiddly to set up

In some areas, this is one of the best TVs around; minor flaws prevent it from fully being so

Lacks Freeview HD tuner

The lack of Freeview HD puts a serious dent in this otherwise attractively priced and advanced Edge LED TV. Excellent speakers, digital media playback and an easy-to-use interface and the highlights, though its ability with contrast, colour and...

Philips 40PFL7605 review


Edge LED with added Ambilight & Net TV, but where's Freeview HD?

Contrast, colour & clarity ; SD upscaling ; USB media playback ; Remote control

No Freeview HD tuner ; No built-in Wi-Fi ; Sluggish Net TV ; Wired networking

Arriving in the most popular size for LED-lit TVs – 40-inch – the 40PFL7605 appears remarkably thin (it's just 42mm deep), but, more importantly, well built.

Philips 40PFL7605 review


The Philips 40PFL7605H is a beautiful looking TV that's complemented by one of the most stylish remote controls we've ever seen – if you've spent a bundle on an uber-cool glass coffee table from Heal's, the Philips remote control will be the proverbial...

The Philips 40PFL7605H is a stunning TV, but it’s expensive. If money's not a problem, though, it's an excellent choice.
