A Phillips pleasure.,
This review is from: Philips 37PFL4007T/12 4000 Series 37-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV with Pixel Plus HD (Electronics)
I have spent the last couple of months looking for a replacement tv. I wanted it to have all the latest gizmo's HDMI,Smart,more than 50 Hertz (in fact it is 200) and so far my choice of the Phillips 37PFL4007T/12 has rewarded me with it's picture. I have yet to buy an internet Dongle but will expect and hope for more satisfaction.

Hi. Can I ask which sets you compared it with, and why did the Philips win? Does it have a swivel-stand? Thanks.

Hi, The Phillips was for use 'Wall mounted' in my bedroom. The attraction was the 'Smart'category and I have a Panasonic 42"TXL42D-25B in the sitting room. I had an elderly Samsung that had 1 HDMI connection in the bedroom at 40" it dominated the room so now does duty as my PC Monitor. If I remember rightly there was swivel movement on the stand, but I wall mounted soon after purchase. I do not hesitate to reccomend the Phillips, apart from it showing it's name every switch on it's great.The Dongle that I purchased failed possibly due to the wireless distance from my Home Hub, the TV is now wired for Lan. As for alternatives the 40" Finlux,a Toshiba, and a 6 series Samsung. I have to admit I did a very good BNIB deal for the Phillips which undercut all the rest.

Many thanks for that info.
I was initially trying to decide between the Panasonic TX-L37E5B and a similarly-priced Samsung UE37ES5500 - I thought Philips TVs would be out of my intended price range! So it was a pleasant surprise to find this model with a similar high-£400's price tag.
Although Philips TVs generally have an excellent reputation, it's frustrating that I cannot find reviews - apart for yours! - of this particular set.
(Pssst, did you get it for less than £479...?!)

You would not regret buying a Panasonic I am sure, I have some items like my microwave still working after 9 years of everyday use. When it came to my TV bought in 2011 possibly a model introduced in 2010, it was not possible to get the software upgrade for BBC I player. My Son bought a cheaper model in early 2012 that had the I player facility. It was'nt sour grapes on my part but the bad taste was there.I have to admit my Phillips was less than £479, my long search for this TV paid off but the hours spent online were plenty.

I was asked to do a review for E Bay, ring any bells, requesting the Phillips on E Bay in the next few days should give my latest no punches pulled appraisal.

Not at all! I posted a 'smiley'. Well, I thought I'd posted a smiley - I can see it!
Many thanks, Billo.
