Multiple EDIT sections added, Philips fixed the lag issue in the latest firmware release.

If you don't want to read the whole review: This TV is pretty good for movies and TV, but is unusable for video games. EDIT: The latest firmware update fixes the lag issue! Thank you Philips for listening.

Postive features :

The image looks very good. It is a 120Hz 1080P TV with anti-judder. It does an excellent job of anti-judder or "digital natural motion" as they call it. It produces good contrast (for an LCD) after calibration, and after some painful calibration color can look OK as well. There are 3 HDMI inputs, composite, component and S-video. There is coaxial audio out (more on this in a moment). I had some friends over and they all agree it looks great. EDIT: After using DNM for a while now I actually prefer it off, mostly because it makes film look like video. You may want to take this into consideration before buying a 120Hz over a cheaper 60Hz tv

Missing \ Lacking features:

There is no vga input. There is no digital audio in - other than HDMI. There is no optical audio out. There is no full resolution 1:1 signal to display (image is always overscanned in 1080p). This means there is no way to get all 1080 pixels width on the screen and the image is cropped between 2.5% and 5%. Note that 1:1 is available when a non-HD or non-SD resolution is passed over HDMI. This issue is minor, only noted for completeness.

There is only one user preset, and if you change any display setting after selecting a preconfigured preset (game, movie, sports), you overwrite your user preset, so you have to remember or write down your calibration settings. This too is a minor issue.

I bought this TV as a second choice when the Vizio I wanted was out of stock. As most reviewers have stated the picture quality on Blu-ray and my now defunct HD-DVD movies are spectacular! It makes watching a movie a new experience as the high def and natural motion feature gives the movies an almost 3D realism and pop, very satisfied with that! View from angles produce slightly softer picture but overall still solid.

I havent experienced any of the sound fluctuations that other reviewers have talked about so far but I have noticed that if you hookup a sound system through the component cables there is a noticeable lag between the sound and picture so it looks like your watching a Kungfu movie :( I'm going to see if using a sound system through HDMI solves the problem (I'll update this review if I get any results).

Now to the meat and potatoes: I see everyones been complaining about videogaming on this tv. I first had this problem myself but ONLY on my Xbox 360, PS3 games play magnificently on the TV with no lag or screen distortion. I have found that if you turnoff Natural Motion 120hz and use an HDMI hookup instead of Component the lag will no longer affect gameplay. (Dont put Game Mode on as it will switch 120hz back on without you knowing which will cause the distortion and lag again) I'm VERY HAPPY I found this out because Im a huge gamer and I almost took this tv back before I made this discovery.

All in All, I am very satisfied with this TV and would recommend it to anyone especially for its affordability and the fact that it performs so well in spite of the cheaper pricetag. Just be sure to make a few adjustments to your setup in regards to your picture and sound as well as your gaming setup. Hope this helps anyone on the fence about this HDTV, now back to Call of Duty lol

I have this TV and the picture just went out. I have sound, but no picture at all, not even the menu. And, of course, Philips only has a 12 month warranty. The nearest repair shop is 90 miles away and the part, labor, and gas will result in more than we paid for the TV. This is a buyer beware item. Anything that dies just after the warranty, especially a big ticket item like this, is to be avoided.

I have this television, I will be honest it was a nice buy, but has anyone actually read the manual. I use mine as an addition monitor to play wow and dont get me wrong its a great picture, but through HDMI this tv maxes out at 60hz. Check the specifications page ppl. picture enchancement is full hd 1920x1080 @ 60-120 hz the Hdmi is full Hd 1920x1080 24hz-60hz . If you play video games or use this as a monitor, look for a 120hz hdmi capable tv that also does not lag.

Just like others have written, after about 18 months the television wouldn't turn on - just a blank, black screen. I have audio but I cannot see the screen. There is probably an easy fix as others have pointed out in the comments, but I feel I shouldn't have to deal with this. Do not buy this television!

We bought this model last year on special pricing, and exactly one year to the day the picture stopped working. Fortunately I registered the TV and called immediately. We were given the option to get it fixed locally (parts and labor paid for by Philips) or get a replacement shipped to us. We opted for the replacement (refurbished) and was told it would be delivered within a week or so. After a week, we received a call that our model is not available and we were given the option of another model, which we agreed to. The other model is slightly newer but has a slower refresh rate (60 vs 120). Now it will be another 5-10 business days for this one to arrive. I'm glad this TV died within the warranty, but who would expect a $550 TV to die in a year? Poor quality in my mind. I will go for a Samsung next time.
