Philips 40PFL9705H

 

Yes, it's flawed. Yes, it's fiddly. But thankfully Philips' 40PFL9705H is nonetheless pretty damn great if you treat it right.

Stunning 2D performance ; Superb sound ; Exceptional multimedia talents

A little crosstalk with 3D ; Haloing with off-axis viewing ; Demands continual effort to get the best from it

The 40PFL9705H won’t be for every one. Its relatively high price, lack of a Freeview HD tuner and rather demanding nature see to that. But if you can get past these initial 'barriers to entry', we're confident that you will end up falling hook, line...

Philips 40PFL9705

 

Can a TV be considered high-end if it has no Freeview HD tuner? Clocking in at just shy of £2000, Philips' latest may lack the latest free high-def TV channels, but combines 3D and pin-sharp Blu-ray pictures with Ambilight and Net TV to create a...

Contrast, colour, detail, Ambilight, speakers, remote control

No Freeview HD, too small for 3D, crosstalk, high price

There’s no Freeview HD or built-in 3D, but armed with a 3D transmitter and a quite brilliant SD upscaler, this delectable high-end LED-backlit TV proves that there’s no match for careful picture processing and high-end build quality.

Philips 40PFL9705 review

 

A bit small for 3D, but nothing touches this TV for image quality

Brushed aluminium casing ; 2D Blu-ray pictures ; Colour and contrast ; Remote control ; Ambilight ; Speakers ; Built-in Wi-Fi

No Freeview HD tuner ; Messy 3D transmitter kit ; 3D pictures suffer from crosstalk

Sandwiched between two very well reviewed 32-inch 32PFL9705 and 46-inch 46PFL9705H sets in Philips' high-end 9000 Series, the 40-inch 40PFL9705 is an expensive TV and is closer to the spec of the stunning £4,000 58-incher 58PFL9955H than it is to...
