Do Not Buy a Philips LCD/Plasma HDTV

Strengths: Good picture for 2 years before tv goes out on you.

Weakness: Tv only lasts about 2 to 3 years before it will go out on you. According to other sites and my own experience this is a tv not worth buying.

Poorly built and is a rip off of your hard earned money. Whatever you do, please don't look at what I wrote and just say I'm not happy. Research the Philips brand you are about to purchase. I have heard more bad things then good. Had this 42" paid off for only a year and now it doesn't work and Philips will not help you any. Tv is just designed to make it past the warranty and if you do have the...

Bad product

Strengths: great picture, good price, easy setup

Weakness: poor quality, still waiting on repair

After 1 week, HDMI 1 went out. Moved the cable to HDMI 3, worked fine. I can't help but wonder what's waiting down the road as far as failures go.... Called Philips customer service, they basically confirmed what I already knew - TV would have to be repaired. I qualified for in-home repair service, but the selection of repair centers didn't impress me. After checking the BBB, found 1 of the 3...

bad product bad customer service

Strengths: looks good, but never buy a tv by its look!!!!

Weakness: everything

My husband and I went out to best buy on August 17, 2007 and purchased a Phillips 42 inch LCD 1080p came to about $3000 including home theater system, surge protector and 4 years warranty. After 2 weeks the TV did not start, we went back to best buy with the TV, at that point, they replaced it with a new TV same brand. After 5 weeks, the new TV did not start again and we called best buy, at that...

Very Nice LCD for the price.

Strengths: Very crisp clear picture in hi def stations. Non-Hi Def stations look better than any LCD I have seen. Built in QAM Tuner for free Hi def.

Weakness: In really dark settings for movies etc... images look kind of inky. Sound from built in speakers is average at best.

I have had this LCD for over 6 months now. We use it as our main viewing set. I have been very pleased so far with it's performance. We also have a Sharp 37" Aquos and the Hi Def actually looks better on the philips especially watching sports. There is very little artifacting with the philips wile there has always been quite a lot on the sharp. Maybe it's because the sharp is a full year older....

Nice TV

Strengths: Nice black background; Good picture enhancement over weak signals; Has digital audio out.

Weakness: Sound is a bit blur with built-in speakers; Bulky front panel; Speakers are not detachable (for a slimmer look); Limited connectivity with only one HDMI digital in.

This is my 2nd Philips LCD TV purchase and as last one I am more than happy with this purchase. The picture clarify is amazing when the Picture Plus and Dynamic Control functions are turned on. It performed better than my last Philips 30" LCD TV on local cable channels (which for some reason usually have relatively weaker signals) as the dynamic control function significantly filtered out white...
