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 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

Philips 48PFT5509


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

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

Is the Philips 48PFT5509 good value? 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...

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...
