Customer Review

PHILIPS 40PFL5007K / 12
-Please Note, peel off the two protective film strips, which adhere to the screen yet, takes place an electrostatic charge!
This also resulted in my second TV, during the subsequent handling (eg cultivation of the foot), to a significant electric shock! (Electrostatic Discharge)
This bad experience I have already reported Philips (salesperson confirmed this fact)
-First TV pointed to creation of favorites (maximum of 20 channels possible) no more reaction.
Frozen (menu, even after reset (power plug) it remained defective.
-Zweites Replacement unit running, now, after the menu behaved totally irreparable.
Well-functioning hotline Philips has helped!
We recommend the following is in cable TV
Automatic channel update 1.Im menu on.
2.Info via automatic channel update on.
After a renewed channel search is required (time for me with cable TV approx 40 minutes)
With this setting, the software no longer depends on the moment.
-Sendesortierung Takes considerably long! Transport the selected channel to the desired location works very slowly.
An improvement I would like to see. All stations marked with a key symbol would leave with only a selection option, lie in a separate directory. This would go much faster by equipping a sorting of the desired unlocked channels.

Here are a few additions.
I had chosen this television because it contains 3 Tuner. This eliminates additional appliances. In the future, for any SAT receiver.
Screen surface is matt, was very important to me, so that light reflections are kept low from the window.
LED backlight was important to me and it looks like a uniform illumination of the image.
(But have no Einfarbdarstellungstests performed)
The image quality equivalent to HD to my ideas. It is difficult to determine a big difference to other brand-name manufacturers in the price level. (In measuring laboratory determined) So fast movements are displayed sharply.
If nature films with modern recording technology will be broadcast, I am always impressed by the image content, and eighth less on perfect technical readings, and such films, the television also represent very good.
Analog image is slightly worse (streaking on the contrast edges are visible) But this is at a distance, sitting position to the device, can hardly be seen at about 3 feet.
The image setting specifications can be customized. (Very good)
Likewise, the tone variants (very good)
The direct sound is surprisingly good and it can in addition to fixed settings presets individually own ideas about sound are stored.
Analog audio output to an external stereo system I using a purchased adapter 2x RCA Clutch to 3.5mm stereo plug of the headphones output jack on your TV, realized. (Sound then some)
Analog recording via an existing Scart connector is not provided.
Playback of analog signals (eg VCR) via SCART connection works.

Additional supplement in July 2007
-After I had repeatedly been addressed with Philips Hotline following problem, in the latest update Q554E_0.88.0.0 (Release date: 2012-07-02) is still offered no change.
Problem: when I disconnect my network connection (Speedport W701V) while the TV is still in operation, I can with the remote control to perform any actions (change channels, volume change, etc.) only after disconnection and reconnection of the TV is everything to operate again ,
-When You change channels with slightly faster following volume control "freezes" the TV. Again Remedy off then on again.
