The HDTV features Philips' Perfect Natural Motion technology, which works to eliminate juddering images and brings you smooth, clear moving images instead. With a 240 Hz rate (240 frames per second) for rapidly moving pictures and a super-fast response time of one millisecond, this HDTV provides fluent motion and a vibrant picture even when there's a lot of action on screen. You'll need this kind of resolution for the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases.

Exceptional Image QualityPixel Precise HD Offers Exceptional Image Quality
For razor-sharp images and fluent moving pictures, Pixel Precise HD is a combination of hardware and software that includes dynamic contrast, color booster, 69 billion colors, and HD Natural Motion. The Philips backlight keeps dark areas supremely black and brightens the light areas for superior contrast and an overall vibrant image.

Audio Technology Delivers Surround Sound Experience
Equipped with SRS TruSurround HD, the HDTV immerses you in a rich sound experience, delivering surround sound quality with deep bass, high frequency detail, and crisp, clear vocals. For additional audio options, a Dolby Digital output is handy for connecting to your home theater system.

Multiple Inputs Cater to All Your Viewing Needs
You can quickly and easily connect to a cable or satellite box, camcorder, game console, Blu-ray disc player, DVD player, PC, and more with the HDTV's multiple inputs. Four HDMI inputs with Philips' EasyLink let you control the connected devices with the same remote control you use with the TV, and a VGA cable is all you need for connecting your PC.

The TV is gorgeous. The picture is clean and crisp with impressive black levels and viewing angles. The Audio is clear and can get quite loud. I watched different excerpts of the Planet Earth Blu-ray and it looked stunning. A family member came in during a water scene and remarked that it was just like watching from the rails of a cruise ship. I would recommend for gaming that you set the Digital Natural Motion to off to avoid any lag time. The performance of this television with the Xbox360 and PS3 is great. I have connected the television to my computer and was satisfied with the performance. Also, check the Philips support center or connect your TV to the internet and download the most recent firmware for increased performance and updated features.
As a previous reviewer mentioned the NetTV is a little iffy; however, the NetFlix and Twitter services work well. I'm hoping that in the near future there will be a few more updates to maybe get Hulu support. The downside is that the new model of this Television is now for sale at a similar price point, and it offers wireless connectivity out of the box, as well as support to play DivX video via USB. I have been told that it is possible to now purchase a WiFi dongle for this television set from Philips for those would like to connect to the internet wirelessly.
All in all, I would recommend this TV to anyone looking to get above average performance from a relatively large LCD on a budget. It has plenty of connectivity for the average user and the box to setup time is extremely low as the stand is already assembled. I look forward to using this Television for years to come. I can't rate it 5 stars because there are other TVs that have more features, but if I could I would give it a rating of four and a half stars. Amazon does not allow this.

I purchased this Television based on the reviews on Amazon and at Best Buy.

This television is quality.

Major positive features of this television are;
1. The Non Glare Screen.
This is not a Led T.V and all the L.E.D. Tvs have the shiny screens so it's very annoying to
view them during the day or if you have movement going on in the background. Maybe the shiny screens make the
image look better. But what does that matter if the viewing enjoyment is degraded by the distractions in the background.

2. Built in Sound System.
Most T.Vs have tinny hollow sounding sound systems and the first thing you have to do is go out and buy
a surround sound system. This T.V has very good built in sound even at high volumes.

3. Weight and thickness. The newest T.Vs are wafer thin and if you bend the screen a little than you have a 55" Brick.
This T.V is a solid 90+ LBS. That could be a positive or a negative depending on how you look at it. In my opinion the extra
weight is because of the solid sound system and higher quality components.

4. Image and color. Excellent the flesh tones are true to life. While this may be a feature on all T.Vs this T.V will automatically
adjust the size of the image to the signal coming in. So if you are watching Non HD it will reduce the size of the screen to the original
broadcast. Also standard definition movies from Vudu look great, I don't know if the T.V enhances them but I've been renting my movies from
Vudu in SD and been very happy.

Negatives.
1. Weight it weighs around 30Lbs more than other 55" T.V so it's a bear to mount.
2. It doesn't have Wifi or internet connectivity built in.

Overall I am ok with this TV. Impressive Picture and Colors. One of the reasons I bought this one was NetTV. In Europe NetTV includes many services as YouTube. Not so in the US. In the US NetTV consists only of the Internet Radio Tuner and the Netflix connection. As per the Customer Service there is not additional Service for NetTV planned. This was a major disapointment. Furthermore in order to upgrade this TV with WiFi you need to buy a Wifi Dongle (PTA01) from Europe. This one is not available in the US and might add up to an additional $100 including shipping. What I currently experience in addition is that the sound from the home theater sytem is slightly behind the picture. Not sure what the reason therefore is and still need to investigate. So, as I said TV is good but with limitations.

This TV has beautiful color and definition. I do still notice the blur you can get with fast motion, even though this is 240hz, but it is not that distracting. I think this was a fair price. I like the swivel stand that comes already attached, very easy setup, good packaging. Happy with this purchase.
