Great buy, fabulous Philips 22-inch LED LCD HDTV,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Philips 22PFL4505D/F7 22-Inch 720p LED LCD HDTV, Black (2011 Model) (Electronics)
I tried going for a smaller widescreen than everyone said I "had to have," and am I pleased! I suspected that since this is my first widescreen, and since I've been getting by on a 13-inch square since my 20-inch square TV went kaput, that a 22-inch Philips would seem like a huge step up. And does it ever. The picture is so sharp that I don't need a bigger screen in my little cottage -- certainly not until my upstairs 13-inch gasps its last. I can read the newscrawlers, subtitles and sports scores. The color is gorgeous, and I haven't even taken time to superfine tune it. The TV arrived days early from amazon.com yesterday afternoon, Free Super Saver Shipping, and I started setting it up this morning. Just then "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" came on Turner Classic Movies, and I hadn't seen it before, and wanted to, but I plunged ahead, watching while I looked at the Quick Start. I unplugged the old and was back watching the movie again before intermission. This HDTV has all the hoolymajiggits to hook up your PC, your video camera, your computer games, and I don't know what all, but being a film fan, all I have is a Magnavox DVD-VHS player, and that hooks up just fine. The remote operates intuitively, and I can move through the menu likewise without reading the manual. I just couldn't possibly be more pleased, especially since I've long depended upon the quality of Philips and Magnavox. Just after Christmas there were 22 of these sets, and they sold out before I could make a move. I let amazon.com know I was sold on the set, but couldn't buy in time. I was so sold that I was thinking of buying the same TV in the 32-inch if I couldn't get the 22. But true to form, amazon.com came through with more 22-inch Philips 720p LED LCD HDTV, Black. I bought one, it's here, and it's up and running, just like that, after weeks of checking availability. I actually think the 32-inch might be too big for my cottage as it is for my budget right now. My TV stands atop the entertainment tower for my component stereo system (remember those?) and it can face forward to the living room, or turn toward the adjacent bedroom (fishing village architecture). It's a very big picture either way. What I like about the Surround Sound is that a lower level is adequate because it's not all coming from one back speaker. No more blaring that makes my Chinese Shar-Pei rub her ears. I'm happy, happy, happy, and so is she. I won't be needing the free return, but in this neck of the woods, I'm grateful amazon.com offers it. Thank you, thank you, amazon.com.

I am interested in this TV but need to know the outside dimensions, esp. width, because itneeds to fit in a cabinet I had custom-built. The review answers the other questions I had about the product. Is there any way I can find out about the outside dimension question?-Willard A. Rogers Morris

Hello WA.R.M.: I found the outside dimensions at home to be just a little different from those listed at the "See More Technical Details" link (click below "Technical Details" sub-heading). Outside frame to outside frame, the width including the frame is 21-1/8 inches. The diagonal including the frame is 24-1/8 inches. The height, top of frame to bottom of frame, is 13 inches. The height, top of frame to tabletop, is 15 inches. I have it on the standard tabletop mount included with the Philips 22PFL4505D/F7 22-Inch 720p LED LCD HDTV, Black (Electronics). Hope this helps. tkf

Thank you. I really wanted to know that tabletop-to-top measurement. I too have a cottage with limited space.

I was sold on purchasing the Vizio Razor (but it has a glass edge which is a little scary for me), but I appreciate what you have to say about this model and plan to order today. You sound like me when I am absolutely thrilled about something I have purchased.

Seems like this samsung tv is really worth the price but I have my doubts about it being sturdy enough if I place it high up. I can't really afford to see this one break. Did you fix the TV to the wall? I would probably go for FlexiMounts to mount it. Check it out if you had a similar conern.
