Philips 46PFL9705 review


The Philips 46PF9705 has an intriguing specification but no HD tuner, and standard-definition pictures look rough

Looks, finish ; intriguing specification ; great picture-making where depth, contrast and motion are concerned

No HD TV tuner ; standard-def tuner is rough ; Byzantine set-up rigmarole

When it’s good it’s very very good, but when it’s bad it’s horrid

Philips 46PFL9705H review


This direct LED TV is the first 3D-capable model I've seen from Philips, and it's also the first active 3D LCD TV to convince me that LCD tech might eventually conquer its crosstalk nemesis.

Stellar 2D pictures; the least crosstalk we’ve seen with 3D from an LCD TV; well built; attractive

No Freeview HD; processing tools need careful use

Perfect Pixel HD engine. Perfect Natural Motion. Perfect Contrast. Perfect Colours. How much perfection can one humble television incorporate?

When it’s good, it’s very very good. But when it’s bad it’s horrid

Philips 46PFL9705H review


Probably the best 3D LCD TV in the world today

Stellar 2D pictures ; Sumptuous design ; Terrific sound quality ; Massive feature list ; Excellent multimedia tools

Complicated to use ; Not cheap for a 46-inch TV ; Crosstalk noise compared to plasma

After making a passable 3D debut Philips has set its sights on something rather more refined.
