3.0 out of 5 stars Prepare yourself to get messing, 16 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Philips 37PFL7605H/05 37-inch Widescreen Full HD Internet LED TV (Electronics)
Its probably the best looking TV you can buy, none of that shiny black plastic you have to polish every 20 seconds. It's also very thin at around 30mm.

The Good:

Sound quality is very clear and powerful much better than some of the Sonys I have heard.
The remote is a quality item, reassuringly heavy and simple to operate.
The LED lit display is bright and the colours are rich and vibrant.

The Bad:

Be prepared to mess about with just about every picture setting to get something that you are comfortable with and then just when you are about 80% happy with it be prepared to go through the process again when you plug in a game console or DVD player.
I will have to pay virgin for an HD box now because the low res pictures are truly awful, you can see the tv trying to catch up with any movement on screen so the edges of faces look blurred and pixelated. I think without the hope of brilliant HD pictures in the future I would have sent this TV back.

I noticed this too with horizontal camera pans, however this is improved if you turn off the HD Natural motion and just have the 100Hz Clear LCD option turned on. With regards to the pixelation my wife noticed this too and we were able to virtually eliminate this by setting the SKY HD+ picture settings to 1080i rather than the Auto option. Perhaps the Virgin box has a similar setting.

Thanks for that, I'll try turning the natural motion off too. I just need to persuade Virgin to give me an HD box, they want to charge me £69!
