1 out of 5 eggsThey make light bulbs

Pros: They make light bulbs?

Cons: They make Televisions.

Other Thoughts: I worked at Wal-Fart for 1 year and 3 months. The televisions were set up in electronics for 2 years. The Phillips brand televisions all went out within 2 weeks of each other all various models on display. They were the only brand of television in Wal-Fart that went out right around 2 years the rest were still running strong 24/7 365 days a year. I would not buy a Phillips brand TV, but if someone gave me one for free I would use it and wait for the 2 year point where it is going to die.

1 out of 5 eggsPhilips is a joke

Pros: (I have the 42PFL3603D/27 model) it worked great, and had great picture, for about 4 days.

Cons: random intervals of fuzz sound which required me to turn the tv off and back on to fix, EXTREMELY poor customer service on the part of Philips.

Other Thoughts: After 4 days of ownership a fuzz sound started at random times, it didn't have any real rhyme or reason to it, so I called Philips, and EVENTUALLY got set up with a service tech who came out and replaced the whole circuit board. After replacing the board and turning the tv back on it was very dim, and has been that way ever since. Philips has been giving me the run around, but finally after many calls to complain, and many calls to the service center (even after I was told to go elsewhere because they could no longer help me), I am getting a new tv. I would suggest not wasting your time with Philips, unless of course you like poor customer service and even poorer merchandise. I have to rate this thing with at least one star, but it doesn't deserve it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for Me

Pros: Video response time and refresh/scan rate are great. HDTV over cable looks fantastic and shows incredible detail. Number of inputs is great, but plan on updating all input devices to digital formats to get the most out of this TV. Audio system built into TV is not bad, actually pretty decent until I built an audio system to complement the TV.

Cons: Buttons on remote feel real "cheesy", not very responsive at times. TV response to remote commands seems strange at times; I see the power LED blink when it receives remote commands, but I don't always see the TV respond to the commands. Remote receiver on TV seems to have a narrow "window" where it actually receives commands.

Other Thoughts: Tv stability on base is a complaint by some. I placed my TV on a stand that is solid and weighs as much as the TV. Seems stable to me unless I need to re-angle the screen. Some have also complained about the menus, and I agree. Some of the preprogrammed buttons on the remote are not very useful to me. The tiny buttons at the top of the remote can be difficult to push, especially when deleting or adding channels.

4 stars because of video quality. If video & audio quality lacked in any way, I would grudgingly give this TV 3 stars.

Also, I did not buy my TV through Newegg. Found a better price locally, even after sales tax was added.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Quality at an Affordable Price

Pros: Brilliant picture. Ultra-low 2ms response time and 120 Hz refresh rate virtually eliminate judder (motion ghosting) with high-def content. Beautiful design. Plenty of HDMI inputs.

Cons: Menu system is clunky and limited in functions and features. The screen and bezel are difficult to keep clean. The stand is cheaply made which causes the entire set to feel wobbly and unsafe(concern for me as I live earthquake country). Remote is blah.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is an excellent set. Newegg is the bomb! I paid $1350 out the door for the TV at Newegg with tax and free drop shipping at the time of purchase. What a deal!!!

5 out of 5 eggsJust a good TV

Pros: A great picture and software upgradable, too.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Mine works great with a small outdoor antenna. This TV also has a QAM tuner and I can get a number of digital channels from Comcast without the need for a converter box. An easy software upgrade solves the anomaly described in another review.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great TV for the price. High DCR, 1080p, 120hz refresh, 4 HDMI inputs. Some of the best sounding built-in speakers on an LCD I've ever heard and they are well hidden for a clean look when using a surround sound system. Picture is spectacular with my Xbox 360, Blu-ray player, and HD cable channels via HDMI cables.

Cons: No VGA input. No Picture-In-Picture. Some of the TV's "enhancement" features actually degrade it's quality, but luckily you can turn them off, so it's not worth docking any eggs over.

Other Thoughts: Lack of a VGA port is excusable if you have a PC that outputs DVI or HDMI. My PC has a DVI out, and I use a DVI to HDMI out along side a PC audio jack to RCA adaptor and this works just as well.

To get the best out of the built in speakers, I had to turn off Auto Volume Leveling and Incredible Surround. Those seemed to do more harm than good. For the Video you may want to turn off the Active Control like I did if you can't stand how often it adjusts the picture.

Digital Natural Motion (DNM) is great and makes motion in video more realistic. No DNM problems with Netflix via the 360, Blu-ray, or digital HD channels, but when watching encoded video from the PC or WMV on the 360 with the DNM on you will see frames drop. I blame the encoding, as the feature works fine with everything else I've thrown at it. Luckily you can turn the feature off when watching from your PC.

All in all, a great TV for the price and would buy it all over again.

3 out of 5 eggsPort Issue

Pros: Excellent Picture Quality, Sharp, Clear and no trace images... This is the Best LCD TV I have seen... 4 HDMI Ports so you can use a DVI to HDMI cable for PC Connections (as long as they have DVI)...

Cons: No RGB connection and only has Digital Coaxial Output for the Audio.
The TV I got has an Issue that makes it Restart (powers off then powers back on and shows the Philips logo) every so often (about once every 8 or 9 hours), so far it only happens when using the first HDMI port.
As long as it only happens on the 1 port I can live with it... (2 to 3 week repair time if you can find a place to repair it. seems several places are no longer doing repairs on Philips TVs.)

Other Thoughts: If you plan to hook this up to an In-Home-Theater system make sure it has Digital Coaxial Input or you will need to get a converter box... It would be nice if it also had Digital Optical Output.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding TV

Pros: Remarkable picture quality. I came from a Panasonic 720 plasma, and the Philips picture quality is steps above. Great looking cabinet. User friendly remote and menu options. Philips is the largest LCD maker in Europe and merged with LG in 1999. 120Hz for 2ms response time. Sound is great for internals.

Cons: HD natural motion, Dynamic contrast, and Active control all try to continually adjust the picture and are not needed. I turned them off.

Other Thoughts: May be the best 42" LCD on the market for the price

4 out of 5 eggsPhillips 42" 1080p 120Hz

Pros: Beautiful Picture; Great Contrast Ratio; 120Hz; Attractive Frame

Cons: [If you plan to connect you PC...] (1.) No PiP (Picture-in-Picture) - I use this feature all the time because I connect my Vista64 Ultimate mediacenter PC to the LCD and watch cable in the top-left corner at the same time I surf the Internet or work on things. (2.) No VGA input - I'm a computer tech who needs to occasionally make a quick connection via VGA(RGB). I have another monitor on a workbench, but a VGA connection (in my opinion) is important.

Other Thoughts: I almost bought this TV after seeing the display at a S@m's Club. But there were two major features missing that I needed. Phillips has several versions of this same 42" model, somewhere close to 10 (see their website). I could not find a 120Hz version with PiP. I ended up purchasing a different brand 42" 120Hz TV that had every feature I needed and more, plus the manufacturer gauranteed no pixel defects. It was also much cheaper...
