Philips 42PFL6805H Econova

 

This 42in LED LCD TV proves you don't have to wear recycled paper underpants to show your love for the Earth's well-being.

Philips 42PFL6805HE review

 

It's beautiful to look at and a great compromise between eco friendliness and performance, but it's still not the best in its class

Lovely styling ; recycled and recyclable ; remarkably low power consumption for a flatscreen ; likeable pictures from all sources ; stable upscaling of SD ; decent sound

Lacks the detail, colour neutrality and motion handling of the best in class ; no Freeview HD

It doesn’t offer the very best picture quality in its class, but Philips’ Econova is a great compromise between eco friendliness and outright performance

Philips 42PFL6805H Econova review

 

The Philips Econova's green creds are heroic but does it compromise on picture quality to help save Mother Earth?

An elegant, high-quality television that also happens to be one of the most environmentally friendly gadgets you can buy

Philips 42PFL6805H Econova review

 

Gorgeous, genuinely green and surprisingly effective LED TV

Eco credentials ; Looks lovely ; Genuinely ingenious design ; Good all-round performance ; Brilliant remote control

Not cheap for a 42-inch TV ; No Freeview HD tuner ; Limited multimedia tools ; Pictures can be a bit noisy or processed

While most people try to do their bit, however small, to prolong the life of this tired planet, the jury remains out on whether green credentials ever help sell televisions.

European Green TV 2010-2011 - Philips 42PFL6805

 

In its quest for energy efficiency, the Philips 42PFL6805 reaches an all time low consuming just 40 Watts in eco-mode. The set demonstrates a holistic approach to eco-design, evident in many details such as the unorthodox product architecture,...
