While shopping with my wife, we wandered over to the TV wall just to check out what was available, and I proceeded to wander up and down the wall looking at the TVs. Slowly I narrowed my pool by size (37"-42"), technology (LED LCD), resolution (1080p), and refresh rate (120Hz-240Hz). After all that, I shocking found myself staring at a Philips set (at a great price). The picture was clear, colors were vibrant (probably over-saturated for the sales floor but that's par for the course, I believe), and the bezel was clean and understated. Honestly, I couldn't believe it. I asked my wife which one she liked, and she picked the same one! We decided to purchase this TV and have loved it ever since I set it up.
The performance:price ratio on this TV is unbelievable. I'm the type of person who lives by the "get what you pay for" mantra, and, honestly, the price was the only thing that scared me about this TV. Is the deal too good to be true? Since we bought the TV without researching it first (another past time of mine), I hopped on teh almighty interwebz as soon as we got home. I could only find a couple negative comments, and I will elaborate on them here:
- The remote and TV IR sensor are a little picky. An angry customer commented that you have to point the remote directly at the TV for it to work. This is not entirely true. The sensor is placed in the bottom middle of the bezel while most TVs have them out to the sides these days. He probably had something sitting directly in front of the TV blocking the sensor.Read more ›
Ok, 1st things 1st. Update the TV!
Meaning just get any USB device and drag over the firmware update from the Phillps website and this TV works like a dream. Its very simple so don't let that scare you into not buying this tv. All new tv's have firmware updates now. Its very common.
I can't speak for the tv before the update because I did it right away.
Anyway, on to the review! ^_^
1st TV Programing
I have Direct TV I gotta say movies and shows simply look amazing. The picture is crisp and pops out at you. The newer the tv show your watching the better it will look. HD programing is a must of course. No Lag or jiddering or whatever other reviews say.
Now for Video games. I have a Ps3 and have played it a fair amount already and There's no lag at 1080p 120hz at all. And thats set at maximum I don't know how some reviews say there's a lag maybe thats before the update. But video games look impressive, and again the picture just seems to pop out at you. I play alot of sports and fighting games which of course has alot of action and fast movements and I'm seeing things I never saw before on my old CRT HDTV. There's just so much detail now that the creator's of the games put into it that I can now see, when before you simply didn't pick it up just looking at it.
Now for maybe what alot of you are buying a 120hz tv for.. The Bluray Movies.
I gotta say the picture looks.breathtaking My Dad who's a old timer when it comes to electronics who's been saying a tv is a tv...even said... Wow this was worth it when he saw the Dark Knight IMAX parts on Bluray. It simply looks like there right in the room with you.Read more ›
Some other reviews have commented on the sound. We're OK with it. Others have said that the remote is a bit sensitive, and we generally concur with that, but it's no big deal. I find the remote overall and the TV in general quite easy to use and configure.
Those things are nice, but TVs like this are really about the picture. I read the glowing reviews of this TV's picture and was excited to see it. Overall, I have to admit that I'm a bit disappointed. Our other TV is a Samsung 40" C630 and I think it definitely has a superior picture to the Philips. I have tried all the different picture mode settings and tinkered with the individual items (brightness, contrast, color) but I just can't get it close to the Samsung. In particular, thin-lined objects such as golf clubs or the edges of a white shirt against a colored background show clear jaggies and aliasing. I also can't get grass to look just the right shade of green. In general, the Samsung's picture just looks crisper and better defined. The Philips picture is by no means bad, but I can notice the difference.
This was the only LED 40" in this price range I could find that had a 120 Hz refresh rate. You have to see it personally what a difference it makes. All of the motion is totally fluid, and really it feels like I am seeing HD for the first time, even though I had been watching HD (on 60 Hz) for one years. It strangely feels almost 3D and Pictures seems popping out.Philips has this cool thing where when you first turn it on, you adjust the picture by choosing between a series of images , and it adjusts the picture for you, and i have to say, i couldn't have set it up better myself. It is so crisp and clear, some shows look almost too real. LED is a huge upgrade, definitely worth it.
With SRS TruSurround HD, the HDTV immerses you in a rich sound experience, giving surround sound quality with deep bass, high frequency detail, and crisp, clear vocals. I haven't gone to max volume, but for me the Volume level is sufficient. Also we do have the option to use external speakers. I have gone through all the leading brands and this TV is having one of the best sound in comparison to Samsung or Sony or local brands like Visio / Insignia.
3. Other stuff:
This tv is, yes, black with a black border like every other but it looks really slick and contoured with a clear poly border that really adds to the streamlined look and its like half as thick and half the weight of my old LCD TV.
A side usb port, if you stick a usb drive in you can look at your own photos, videos and listen to music.
Also DO remember to upgrade the firmware of this TV. The latest firmware is PHL_0CA_323_0, which is available for free at Philips website [...]
