Philips 32PFL9705 review


Direct LED and peerless picture quality make this the best 32-inch TV ever made

Stunning picture quality ; Ambilight works a treat ; Nice looking and well-built ; Excellent sound quality ; Outstanding multimedia capabiilty

No 3D compatibility ; Extremely expensive for a 32in TV ; Complicated to use

Philips' high-end sets are reliably innovative and tend to produce class-leading pictures, ensuring that the first of Philips' 9000 range arrives with some high expectations to live up to, despite its relatively small screen size.
