The 3D comb filter separates brightness and colour signals better in 3D domain to eliminate cross-colour, cross-luminance and dot-crawl distortion - all of which detract from your viewing pleasure. The 3D digital comb filter performs field-by-field comparisons of the television image to accurately separate the colour from the black-and-white information and remove both horizontally and vertically hanging dots, as well as dot crawl. The result is a razor sharp image.
Incredible Surround™ for enhanced audio enjoyment
Incredible Surround is an audio technology from Philips that dramatically magnifies the sound field to immerse you in the audio. Using state-of-the-art electronic phase shifting, Incredible Surround mixes sounds from left and right in such a way that it expands the virtual distance between the two speakers. This wider spread greatly enhances the stereo effect and creates a more natural sound dimension. Incredible Surround allows you to experience total surround with greater depth and width of sound, without the use of additional speakers.

2 HDMI inputs for full digital HD connection in one cable
HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analogue signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection. With 2 HDMI inputs you can connect multiple HD sources, for instance an HD set top box and a Blu-ray player. Your TV is fully prepared for the HD future.
Top customer reviews
SD broadcasts definately benefit from a decent arial feed and freeview digital TV images are far better than those of analogue broadcasts, with a sharper, more vibrant picture (although not quite as good as DVD images in my experience). The pixel plus 2 HD is permanently on so I am unable to offer any suggestion as to whether it is a bonus or hinderance to the image displayed. The set is easily wall mounted as well as having a robust, removable stand and build quality is excellent.
For anyone who has an ariel socket on the wall or who needs to connect an external device i would recommend upgrading the arial leads/scarts etc, using something like QED's ttv ariel lead, P21 scart, HDMI-P Lead - These kind of things make a substantial difference to the quality of the image, surprisingly so.
This is an excellent TV, outstanding value and heartily recommended.
Set up is ridiculously easy, you'll be watching the in-built hd freeview channels within minutes. Really good stand also, the tv is very attractive to look at and not bulky at all - in fact its very sleek. I went up from a 26'' to a 37'' and the Philips doesn't look oversized or out of place. Seriously, this is a bargain tv which will serve anyone handsomely for the next 10 years. BUY BUY BUY!
I read the review before and tend to agree yea there are TV's out's there with a slightly better picture but there's nothing in it really. The sound is fine. It looks very pretty.
Overall for the money i think it's a brilliant buy !
