Philips 42PFL6008


Stylish TV with impressive picture and comfortable 3D – this one's a strong contender

Crisp, clean picture ; Comfortable passive 3D ; Above-average sound ; QWERTY remote control

Blacks could be darker ; Slightly sluggish reaction times ; Limited smart features ; Awkward interface

The Philips 42PFL6008 certainly holds its own against its pricier rivals. It’s a very good performer in a lot of areas, and it has some really nice features.

Philips 42PFL6008 review


Floating LED TV puts detailed images ahead of smart stuff

Ambilight ; Powerful audio ; Double-sided remote ; Sharp 2D and SD ; Smooth 3D

Cable, but no Freesat ; Limited smart TV ; Sluggish GUI ; Media playback confuses ; Wi-Fi Smart Screen stutters

There are few TVs around that produce pin-sharp and clean images from all sources, but the Philips 42PFL6008 is such a TV.
