What do you call a fully loaded TV that’s not fully loaded? The Philips 40PFL9705H. For while on the one hand this TV has arguably the most extensive suite of features ever seen on a TV, it also lacks one of the most basic: a Freeview HD tuner....

There’s no Freeview HD or built-in 3D, but armed with a 3D transmitter and a quite brilliant SD upscaler, this delectable high-end LED-backlit TV proves that there’s no match for careful picture processing and high-end build qualityKey...

Philips new high-end model, 9705H, has a range of multimedia features but we have come to the same conclusion as in the Philips 8605H review. The DLNA and USB functionality is quite good. The NET TV internet services are too limited and the internet...

The classy 46-inch Philips 46PFL9705H/12 produces some startling pictures and has top-notch sonics, but the LED TV's line-up of Internet services is weak and it lacks an HD...

After making a passable 3D debut Philips has set its sights on something rather more refined.The 46PFL9705H is the largest screen in the Dutch brand's flagship 9000 TV series after the incredible 58-inch Philips Cinema 21:9 Platinum and is bristling...

While most big AV brands have been selling 3D TVs for months now, joining the 9000 series, the 46PFL9705H marks Philips’ 3D debut. The company’s excuse is potentially a good one, though: namely that they haven’t wanted to release 3D...

46PFL9705 fortsetter å imponere, og er en high-end TV som scorer høyt på de fleste områder. Spesielt kontrasten er i en klasse for seg, med blendende lysstyrke og avgrunnsdypt svartnivå i hver sin ende. 3D-ytelsen er derimot...

Philips nye topmodel, 9705H, har en række multimedie-funktioner, og konklusionen for disse er mere eller mindre den samme som i 8605H anmeldelsen. DLNA og USB-funktionaliteten fungerer pænt, men ikke problemfrit. NET TV Internet-tjenesten er...

International Review By M3.idg.se on 60

Philips 46-tummare i 9000-serien är utan tvekan en väldigt dyr tv, men ger i gengäld ganska mycket för pengarna. Modellen tillhör förutom deras megabreda 21:9-tv det absoluta toppskiktet av tv-apparater från Philips....

Bei unseren statischen Bildmessungen zeigte das vollflächig mit Leuchtdioden (LEDs) hinterleuchtete Display des Philips 46PFL9705K einen tollen maximalen Kontrast von gemessenen 5.350:1. Auch der Schachbrettkontrast fällt mit 203:1 extrem...
