I ordered this HDTV from Amazon on October 2, and it was shipped the same day. It was delivered with White Glove service (from a local agent-no Eagle in Lubbock) on Monday a.m. October 8. The local dispatchers, the two delivery men, and Amazon employees were all courteous and efficient. The set was un-boxed, placed in the bedroom, and packing was carried away. You will have to install the stand (a simple process).

I had researched all major brands of HDTV for months before making this purchase, including Sony, Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic, Sharp and others. I looked at models locally at Best Buy, and compared full price with shipping but no taxes from several online vendors. The Amazon white glove deal was the best. I currently own two other smaller HDTV units, by Toshiba and Samsung (2007 models) and had previously owned a 2005 Toshiba that had a smaller screen and cost $1,000K more.

The TV is a hidden gem in the US marketplace. It has all the usual bells and whistles, including 3 HDMI connections, 2 component video, composite connections and a host of other standard AV connections. It is 1080p native, (accepts 24HZ and 60HZ signals) and includes 6 wide screen modes, including my favorite, an Automatic mode which will fill the screen fully as content changes. The remote control is backlit (an unusual feature), and features a really nice user interface for the on screen software adjustments, Regular software updates are made available that can be downloaded to a USB flash drive and installed in the TV. There is a great support thread at AVS Forums, and Philips product support is excellent.

Two weeks after having bought this TV, I have to say it's easily the best image I've ever seen. The colors are bright and accurate, and the TV has no trouble showing off the most convincing blacks of any LCD I've seen. The Ambilight turns out to be more than just a gimmick, too; it really does make movies and games more immersive, and easier on the eyes. The only flaw is one dead pixel, right near the center of the screen, but it's invisible even if I try to look for it from a few feet away from the screen. I'm enough of a perfectionist that it bothered me just knowing it was there at first, but after getting it out of my head, I have to admit it isn't really a problem at all.

I'd easily recommend this TV to anyone looking for a high-end HDTV at a good price.

We received our item in the time frame that was given to us. Each day we were notified as to how the purchase was proceeding. We were called the day before delivery and delivery arrived the following day within the time we were told. Installation of the TV was simple. We have been enjoying our new TV very much. The ambilight is great as it seem to make TV viewing easy on your eyes. Gaming on the LCD is great and we particularly enjoy the fact that there is no glare on the TV screen. I believe that anyone purchasing this TV would not only be happy with the TV, but also the service we received from Amazon as well as from the people delivering our TV.

This turned out to be even better than I had hoped for. Rich colors, great definition, lots of inputs for various devices. Easy to use. The only flaw is my cable company (Time-Warner) which doesn't have a clue about installations, service, etc.

But the TV is nearly perfect. Just the right size for our bedroom, The Ambalight feature adds to the thrill of seeing television totally new again. I didn't realize what we were missing on our old 36-inch tube set. This is dazzling.

This TV turned out to be even better than expected. We needed to get a new TV because our 4 yr old Toshiba rear projection just died on us. Went to Best Buy looking for the Samsung plasma but ended up getting this instead. We are very happy with it. The picture is amazing and we get more HD channels than we did with our Toshiba for some reason. The sound quality isn't great but then most Tv's are hooked up to a sound system anyway so that't not an issue. The picture quality and ambilight feature makes up for it. We are very pleased and hope to get a better run with this one than we did with our Toshiba.

This is a great product. The ambilight feature is great. I was simply blown out by the picture quality of this unit. Made a lot of research at CNet and other sites and everywhere I found good reviews about this product. Currently I do not have an upconverting DVD player, using a SONY progressive scan single-DVD player, but still the performance is amazing.

Many years old now and still looks great. I did have a serious issue years ago - back-light inverter board(s) failed. The boards are available cheap on Ebay, but replacement requires some skill (lots of screws and care with some jumper cables).

To keep things short I'll just bullet point the features that still make me happy even after 3 years of owning the TV.
*Backlit remote control
*Subtle yet very enjoyable Ambilight technology
*6 screen size settings with Automatic being my favorite, it automatically re-sizes the screen based on the content. So going from a widescreen movie to a fullscreen TV show requires no effort on my part to use the maximum amount of screen space.
*Connections for every device I have.
*Gorgeous 1080P
