Philips 46PFL8008S


Philips' latest high-end TV comfortably keeps up with the Joneses.

Philips 46PFL8008S review


A dark, brooding stainless steel design hides a home cinema sweetheart with convincing blacks

Black levels ; Excellent picture presets ; Double-sided remote ; Subwoofers & sound ; Netflix, Blinkbox & BBC iPlayer

Peak white glare ; No Lovefilm app ; Viewing angle ; Restricted pointer remote ; No MKV streaming

Ambilight impresses once again, while the floating design is incredibly effective. Its double-sided remote makes entering text on a TV at least a possibility, while the sound quality is nothing short of stunning.
