Gary, Linlithgow High spec fanatic

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I've just bought the Philips 32PFL9604H/12 television. I managed to pick this one up for around a third less than its orignal price - see the What HiFi television reviews where the only compliant was its price. Not only does this TV look great, but once set up the picture quality is absolutely stunning.
Bad points:
It does take a little time to get the picture set-up right, but once there you'll be handsomely rewarded !

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The image on this TV is spectacular. None of its tricks (pixel precise--which is only really useful if you are watching football) are needed to get the best our of it...a little tinkering with brightness and a good raise in contrast and its all but perfect. HD, it goes without saying, it the best, but SD, especially DVD, is better than any LCD I've ever seen.
Bad points:
If the TV is not set in PC mode (which turns most of the tricks off and which I'd recommend) then it does overscan images slightly. Also, with my set up, the TV doesn't automatically tune to the different inputs, which must be done manually---but that just might be somthing |i haven't set up correctly.
