MediaConnect Brings Wireless Internet to Your TV

The Philips 40-Inch 1080p LED LCD HDTV features MediaConnect, which enables you to wirelessly connect your PC to your TV for unlimited access to online movies, photos, videos, social networking, and more. With Philips MediaConnect, your computer screen is mirrored on your TV screen so the Internet is at your fingertips. MediaConnect is easy to activate, and does not require you to upload apps, pay fees, or buy additional equipment or software.

1080p Resolution Supports the Latest HD Media

The HDTV supports 1080p signals, so you'll be able to enjoy Blu-ray and high-definition games at their intended resolution. The TV also features signal processing, which helps keep image quality pristine. The result is a crisp, high-resolution image that is free of pixel gaps, flickers, and other video artifacts.

Access Online Content with Wireless NetTV

Thanks to the NetTV feature, you'll be able to access a world of online content from the comfort of your living room. The HDTV connects wirelessly to your home network so you can enjoy your favorite videos, movies, and more with NetFlix, YouTube, Vudu, Pandora, Facebook, and Twitter.

Exceptional Image Quality with Any Input

This TV offers exceptional high-definition video, progressively scanning images to bring you a smooth, flicker-free picture. It uses Pixel Precise HD technology to process each incoming pixel before it reaches your screen, ensuring exceptional image quality regardless of what input you are using. You'll see improved detail, brighter contrast, and more vivid color--even when using older, standard-definition devices.

LED Lighting for Superior Contrast

The HDTV uses LED lighting technology to generate an eye-catching image while keeping power consumption at a minimum. Individual diodes light up the TV picture, creating a bright, evenly lit image that is ideal for lights-off viewing. LEDs also dramatically improve contrast, so you can distinguish each individual color.

Audio Technology Delivers Immersive Surround Sound

Equipped with SRS TruSurround HD, the TV delivers surround sound quality with deep bass, high frequency detail, and crisp, clear vocals. The TV also integrates a Dolby Digital output so you can connect your home theater system, giving you additional audio options.

Connect DVD Players, Computers, USB Drives, and More

You can quickly and easily connect 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 connected devices with the same remote control as the TV. And, all you need to connect your PC is a VGA cable. The HDTV can also achieve connectivity with TV-ready USB devices, thanks to its USB input.

Energy-Efficient Features Reduce Power Consumption

The HDTV is Energy Star certified. The TV's circuitry dramatically reduces power consumption, so the device uses less than 1 watt of power while in standby mode.

Bought this TV a few weeks ago. Overall its pretty awesome - easy setup, great picture, good on energy. The sound is good for general use, but if you are picky about it you may want to get a set of speakers for better sound. Also, don't know if this is just our internet connection or not, but Netflix is constantly reloading on this TV when I hardly ever had a problem using it with the Wii on the old TV. My biggest concern is the amount of time it takes the TV to actually turn on - about a 10 second lag time. I would have also liked to see space for multiple component units. Without a switchbox, we are constantly having to switch out the cables for the DVD player, N64, and Wii, as they are not hdmi compatible. Don't let these few kinks deter you though; its good features outweigh the bad for me. I love being able to wirelessly connect to the screen (great for showing online videos or pictures)and there are so many great preloaded apps. I'm not sure I'll have enough time to learn enough to use it to its potential. Overall, great buy and a great price!

Pros - picture, easy setup, user friendly, built in applications, features, economical
Cons - slow loading, lack of non-hdmi component inputs, Netflix reloading

Recommended accessories - hdmi cables, component switchbox (for older electronics), wireless keyboard for typing on applications, a good vision insurance plan (for how much you are going to want to play with the tv!)

Bought this TV mainly because it has built-in Wifi, but I have been very impressed with every aspect of it. The picture quality is excellent, it is VERY energy efficient ($14/year in energy cost), and the extras and internet apps are awesome. This is my first Philips TV, and I think my next TV will also be a Philips. I am overall very impressed.

Verified Purchase
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the TV considering I paid less than $500 for a refurbished one. The time that the TV takes to start wasn't really a concern unlike some other reviewers here. My views are mainly based on the Net TV usage since I don't have cable hooked up to this TV.

Pros:
- Even though the speakers are on the back, the sound quality is pretty awesome in my opinion for this type of TV. I haven't noticed any tinny sound. We have it sitting on a stand (the box it came in, lol) about 3 inches from the wall.
- Smart TV
- Crisp picture with little to no motion blur.

Cons:
- Too many of the Net TV channels error out when you try to play them. Considering I bought this TV for our bedroom (no cable) and only use the Net TV, this is really annoying.
- The Net TV GUI isn't the most intuitive or friendly interface. It doesn't appear to allow you to rewind or fast forward any vTuner videos/channels.
- You can't set the sleep function when you're using Net TV. You have to go back to the tuner, set the sleep and then go back to Net TV.
- You can see white light bleeding at each corner of the TV on a black/dark screen. There's also blotches of white bleeding through on the entire screen that you can see on a black background and I can also faintly see it bleed through to the color. This is the biggest annoyance for me considering how great the picture would be w/o this flaw.

If the TV didn't have the white light bleed, I'd rate it a 4. If the Net TV wasn't as buggy & I could set the sleep function from anywhere, I'd give it a 5.

will continue to work on this review, but after owning for 24 hours, i like this set.

downsides already noted: takes a ridiculous amount of time to power on (seriously, like 15 sec). it's pretty heavy at 33+ lbs hanging on my wall.

upsides: awesome picture, less motion blur with a football than other LED sets. sound is a bit better than other sets, which may not be relevant for those with a receiver, but for me in my kitchen, it is nice to have.

overall it is a 4 star due to my comments above.

update 1/13/2012: still slow to turn on and still heavy, but i'm keeping it (after having returned two others). by the way no issues with picking up my wifi.

I keep finding another piece of missing technology on this "Smart TV"

I bought this locally on clearance about 4 months go. First, Hulu was not in the "Smart TV" lineup, although Netflix and Blockbuster (pay-per-view) were. So I bought an external Roku-like device for $60.
I just bought headphones so I could watch TV without disturbing anyone. I could not get them to work, although there is an audio jack in the back. Looking online on the Philips site, Philips indicates that there is no way to use headphones with this model directly. You have to buy an external receiver. I quote from the Philips site: "Hi. The only possible way is to connect an external Receiver via HDMI ARC or SPDIF and connect the Headphones to this Device."

Another device to connect to HDMI and convert it to analog for me with RCA jacks is $25. This TV is half-baked. No wonder why it was on clearance.

If you know you will never use anything but NEtflix and Blockbuster Pay-per-View (not a monthly Blockbuster subscription, but pay per view) and never watch anythign via Amazon or Hulu, AND you know you will NEVER use headphones, then buy it.
