5.0 out of 5 stars Best LCD in it's price range., March 6, 2006
By 
This review is from: Philips 32PF5320 32-Inch Widescreen LCD HD-Ready TV (Electronics)
We bought this HDTV at Sam's Club. It had been previously purchased and returned sating it had bad sound. A local TV repair shop tested it out and nothing was found to be wrong. Sam's knocked $300.00 off thier price since it had been opened. I have tested this TV using every connection and found it to be an outstanding unit. I hooked up our Motorola cable top box to the HDMI input on the TV. The cable box (Charter Cable), has a DVI-D output, so I am using a DVI-D to HDMI converter cable. (Bought the cable at Wal-Mart for $43.00) It is a totally digital connection this way. The picture is fantastic even on non-HDTV signals.
I hooked up our DVD player using the Component video inputs and keep the DVD player on progressive scan, again a great picture.
I have not found any negatives except the remote which is small and hard to handle. I think they made it small/thin to go with the LCD thin TV design. My only complaint, which isn't really an issue for most, is that using composite or the HDMI input for the DVD doesn't allow selecting image formats. Some older DVDs use a native 16:9 display and are not widescreen enhanced, hence you get bars all the way around the image, much like a picture frame. However, most DVDs are widescreen enhanced so they fill the entire screen, or most of it. Also, when expanding an image, you would get less detail because it is "stretching" the video to fit the screen. BTW: Most HDTVs are not capable of changing formats when using anything but the RCA/SVHS hook-ups anyway.
I think most everyone would be happy with this HDTV!
