Philips 46 PFL 9704

 

Excellent motion clarity., High contrast ratio., Low power consumption., Accurate 24p reproduction., Great sound., Rich multimedia capabilities

The operation is just plain awkward., Local Dimming artefacts

Philips presents an impressive package: excellent features, sharp motion sequences, rich blacks, decent colours, excellent sound, and low power consumption. With these under its belt, the 46 PFL 9704 is easy to forgive for its Local Dimming artefacts...

Philips 52 PFL 9704

 

The highest contrast we’ve ever measured., Loads of multimedia functions., High motion-clarity, accurate 24p., Superb sound

Unnatural colours., Artefacts from Local Dimming., Not very user friendly

Wow, what a deep black! Philips’ new 52-incher will captivate home-cinema fans with near-perfect blacks and an extremely cinematic picture. But this Dutch LCD struggles with colour fidelity and suffers from side effects related to its Local Dimming...

Philips 46PFL9704 review

 

The Philips 46PFL9704 is now a discontinued model.

Stunning looks and build ; effective depth-enhancing Ambilight ; detailed, punchy pictures all-round ; great sound

New rivals offer even greater black insight and motion ; no Freeview HD

It’s still superb, but the Philips should no longer be the only telly on your shopping list

Philips 40PFL9704 review

 

We thought nothing would come close to matching the dramatic depth and punch of Pioneer's Kuro plasma sets. Enter Philips...

Fabulous picture, with especially impressive contrast ; terrific sound ; comprehensive spec ; elegant styling ; quality build

It’s hardly what you’d call cheap

A premium price for a premium TV. If you’ve got the cash, this Philips is well worth the outlay

Philips 40PFL9704 television

 

With flatscreen TVs now a commodity market, finding a high-end set that represents the pinnacle of engineering is increasingly tricky – but Philips' latest LED set strives for just that. With powerful speakers and fluid, contrast-heavy pictures, this...

Deep black, excellent speakers, fluid pictures

Some artefacts, over-processed digital TV, high price

With powerful speakers and fluid, contrast-heavy pictures, this 40-inch TV shows just what can be done to the flatscreen TV idea. Effective use of LED backlighting and the useful, if slightly flawed, Perfect Natural Motion feature helps create some of...

Philips 46PFL9704H review

 

Philips' second-generation LED TV leaves us awestruck

Beautiful design ; Outstanding audio ; Arguably the best LCD picture ever ; Excellent 'net connectivity

Quality doesn't come cheap ; Colour presets aren't great

This is the best TV Philips have ever built and shows that 2010 is going to be the year of LED TVs

Philips 40PFL9704 LCD TV review

 

Pricey 40-inch LED screen that pulverises plasma

Stunning pictures ; Excellent image processing ; Ambilight wins ; Superb BLu-ray performance

The price ; Soft Freeview pictures

With tumbling prices and features galore, standing out in the big-screen TV market isn't easy.

European LCD-TV 2009-2010 -> Philips 46PFL9704H/12

 

Competition in the LCD display market is tough, but Philips once again offers a masterpiece for moving pictures. With its backlight now using 224 LED segments and local dimming, the 46PFL9704H/12 will amaze viewers with the deepest blacks ever, making...
