This direct LED TV is the first 3D-capable model I've seen from Philips, and it's also the first active 3D LCD TV to convince me that LCD tech might eventually conquer its crosstalk nemesis. I find the biggest hurdle to accepting 3D is crosstalk noise....

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. It's...

A high-end 32in TV might seem a frippery, yet there's an appeal to the 32PFL9705's elegant styling and extensive spec. The might not be a telly that you really need, but it's definitely one you'll want.Unless, of course, you want Freeview HD. Over...

So what do you want from a TV? Great image quality? Check. Decent sound? Check. Effective 3D, even if you do have to wear those pesky glasses? Check. Philips has managed to deliver on all counts, and that’s before you get to the additional features...

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 specsComponent,...

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 TVs until they...

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...

International Review By Ere Numérique on 90

Les 32 pouces sont tout aussi connectés que les écrans de grandes diagonales.Il est de plus en plus tentant de vouloir acheter un téléviseur LCD surdimensionné. A l’occasion de la fin d’année 2010, bon nombre de constructeurs en ont profité pour...

International Review By Lyd og bilde on 83

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 ikke spesielt imponerende,...

International Review By pcworld.pl on 70

Podświetlenie strefowe ma za zadanie wspomóc elementy ciekłokrystaliczne, które nie są w stanie zatrzymywać zbyt wielkich ilości światła, w osiąganiu głębszych czerni. Realizuje się to za pomocą słabszego podświetlenia tych fragmentów obrazu, gdzie...
