Fantastic LCD TV
on 27 January 2009
I've had this TV for about 1 month now and I have to say that it is absolutely superb.
I spent a lot of time in Dec '08 and early Jan '09 researching tv's and looking for the best deals. I nearly bought the Sony Bravia 40W4500, which is packed with features and looks great. However, when I calculated the optimum viewing distance in my lounge, I came to realise that a 40' tv was just a bit too big. So, I decided to go for a 37' and for an LCD in this size, this Philips is the pick of the bunch. Its a bit more expensive than many of its rivals, but it just cannot be matched for spec.
The contrast and colours are amazing and with a bit of tweaking the picture looks unbelievably great with my Sky, HDD recorder, and up-scaling DVD player. Even my downloaded avi video files look amazing. Sound quality is also first rate - especially for an LCD tv.
I have really developed a love of the ambilight too. I had never experienced this before, but when you watch a film in the dark with the ambilight on moderate mode its just truly spectacular.
My final point is that the tv design is very classy and sophisticated.
In conclusion I strongly recommend this tv!
