Philips 48PFT5509


A superb value 48-inch HD TV

Great value ; Contrast- and sharpness-rich pictures ; Space-saving design

So-so for standard definition ; Slow and content light smart TV

It’s worth adding here that as well as not having too many picture processing tools to experiment with, the 48PFT5509 also doesn’t have as many native contrast problems as some other sets in Philips’ current range, reducing the amount of work required...

Philips 40PFT5509


A surprisingly talented budget 40-inch TV

Excellent pictures for the money ; Good sound for the money ; Great value

Slightly high input lag for gaming ; Needs more catch up TV services ; Minor backlight inconsistency in one corner

The main set up points to consider are turning off all noise reduction processing when watching HD, leaving the Dynamic Contrast option on its low setting (which boosts contrast without making the picture look unstable), making sure the brightness...

Philips 48PFT5509 review


A 48in Full HD Smart TV, Philips' 48PFT5509 rides into town waving a £500 ticket in the face of potential cash-conscious buyers. Its affordable nature isn't obvious from its design. The frame is on-trend slim, and the open metal stand mirrors much of...

Exceptionally cheap; mostly good picture quality; good audio

Content-light Smart TV service; average standard-def performance; only two HDMIs; some motion blur

Philips 48PFT5509 review


Philips's rehabilitation continues with this great-value TV

Very good value ; Attractive and robust design ; Good HD picture quality ; Decent audio

Standard definition looks average ; Limited smart TV content ; Sluggish smart TV system ; No Ambilight or 3D

Even though this 48-inch TV costs less than some 32-inch TVs it's a surprisingly strong picture and sound performer. Its design doesn't feel budget either, and while its Smart system is a little content-light, finding any Smart features at all on such...

Philips 48PFT5509 (PFT5509) TV Review


This mid-range Smart TV performs pretty much as we expected it would - somewhat middle of the road.

Decent black levels ; Nice design ; Some good smart features ; Reasonably priced

Some uniformity problems ; Off-hue greens ; Lack of shadow detail ; Awful menus

We think the pricing of this TV is about spot on. You get a nice looking bit of kit which produces reasonably good pictures, most of the time, and there are a good set of smart features included. We would like to have seen better screen uniformity and...

Amazing HD picture quality for the price


I bought this TV in September 2015 as a replacement for our old Samsung. The first thing that struck me was how light it was, despite its size. Assembling the stand was straight forward, as was setting up the connections. The stand-out feature of this...

Great TV!


Used clubcard boost to cover almost half the cost of this TV, so it was even better value! The picture quality is excellent and the sound is pretty good too. The smart TV feature is fairly basic compared to other TVs but for the price, this 48 inch is...
