Philips 42PFL7666


The Philips 42PFL7666 delivers arguably the most compelling argument yet for passive 3D – and it's not bad at other stuff either!

Very good 3D performance ; Mostly good 2D performance ; Above average audio

Black level response could be better ; Online service still a little off the pace ; Care must be taken with setup

Philips 42PFL7666 review


Passive 3D meets Ambilight on this stylish 42inch LED Smart TV from Philips

Ambilight Spectra 2 lighting ; Well-stocked IPTV portal ; Fine hi-def picture quality

Challenging image calibration ; Jaggy looking Passive 3D

Philips 42PFL7666 review


Incredible in some areas, but there are flaws in its picture performance

Styling ; spot-on colours ; definition and detail ; enjoyable 3D ; wi-fi ; Ambilight

Inconsistent motion ; compromised contrast ; fiddly setup ; needs more smart TV

In some areas it’s incredible, but a couple of flaws hold this stylish Philips back

Philips 42PFL7666 review


When Philips offloaded its TV division to Chinese manufacturer TPV a year ago, it seemed like it was game over for the idiosyncratic Dutch brand. Battered by declining global demand and hampered by a year without Freeview HD, some thought it had...

Superior build quality; convenient Passive 3D tech; worthwhile selection of streaming

Complicated picture calibration; low-resolution 3D; some HDMI handshaking issues

Philips 42PFL7666


Active shutter or passive 3D? Expensive glasses and awesome detail, or cheap glasses and a slightly softer image? Can't make up your mind? Don't worry, neither can Philips, which is why its forever delayed 2011 crop of 3D TVs are divided between the...

Built-in speakers, 2D Blu-ray, comfortable 3D, design, build, remote, photo streaming from a smartphone

Less detail on 3D, middling contrast, basic GUI, Net TV needs more apps

It’s more highly polished on the outside than in, but this good value Edge LED TV has a new passive 3D system that's as easy on the eye as on the wallet. As well as using cheaper 3D specs and offering the unique Ambilight system, this telly exudes...

Philips 42PFL7666H review


Edge LED TV with Wi-Fi makes the case for Passive 3D

Full HD detail ; Ambilight ; Bushed metallic design & build quality ; Powerful audio ; MyRemote app's photo streaming

Passive 3D lacks detail ; Visible pixel grid during 3D ; Lacks must-have apps ; Contrast

Phillips has taken its sweet time in delivering its 2011 line-up of LED TVs, but this 7000 Series screen was worth the wait.

Philips 7000 series Smart LED TV review


For this review we tested the 42in model (42PFL7666T/12) in the 7000 series, but it's also available in 37in (37PFL7666T/12) and 47in (47PFL7666T/12) screen sizes - for £850 and £1,100 respectively. All models have identical specifications except for...

A great passive 3D TV, with all the usual high-end features and the bonus of AmbiLight

Philips 7000 (7606)


Philips' new 7000 range is a mid-range TV and one of the few TVs available at the moment to utilize the passive 3D system. Philips calls it Easy 3D. But Philips 7606 is also a standard 2D TV driven by Philips' picture systems. Features such as NET TV,...

3D solution, great 3D glasses; Response time; Accurate colors after calibration; No light bleeding; 2-player full-screen gaming

Out-of-box picture settings; Input lag; NET TV slow and too few relevant Apps; Black depth

Philips 7606 offers all the multimedia functions you would expect from a mid-range TV nowadays. But the old advice goes that quality matters, not quantity, and we were not too convinced with Philips’ NET TV platform. It feels slow and unpolished and at...

Philips 42PFL7666 42in 3D LED Smart TV


Review Philips spent much of 2011 on the periphery of the televisual market, bereft of Freeview HD tuners and dogged by confusion over its long-term ambitions, having off-loaded its TV business into a joint venture. But things are off to a better start...

Overall, the Philips 42PFL7666 is a solid proposition. Image quality is good – once you’ve mastered the copious image processing modes – and the smart net portal is well stocked. Indeed, the Series 7000 screen is idiosyncratic but classy nonetheless. ®
