The 42PFL7404's pictures do have a couple of weaknesses though. First and worst, as with the LG model they lose contrast and colour when watched from any sort of angle. But also, the heavy-duty processing in the TV can occasionally make standard...

A good-looking HD TV with good image quality, but the stylish menus aren't easy to use. You can get a better 37in model for less money....

The 42 PFL 7404 is a great all-round TV with a sleek design. It scores further plus points for its passable video processing, decent colours, and relatively powerful sound. On the other hand, the Philips’ low...

Philips have created another LCD TV that produces the goods in terms of picture performance, but now with the added advantage of price competitiveness. The 42PFL7404 competes head on with the likes of Samsung, Sony and LG in this sector. Add superior...

After producing a stream of extravagantly specified premium TVs, Philips is finally catering for the less well off with the 42PFL7404, and we hope this doesn't mean too many cut corners. It certainly doesn't look cheap: the glossy black bezel is...

There's no denying makes some of the highest-end TVs around, but if you can't stretch to the range-topping , you can opt for this, the much more affordable 47PFL7404.In fact, even if you can stretch to the pricier set, there's a very...

With Philips' 9000-series TVs causing such a stir, we were concerned that the lower-spec 32PFL7404H/12 would feel disappointingly stripped-down. But, despite being considerably cheaper, it still delivers a real flavour of the picture-processing...

To be honest, Im approaching the Philips 42PFL7404 today with a degree of trepidation. For while every model Ive seen from Philips all-singing, all-dancing 9000 TV series has proven suitably impressive, I wasnt entirely blown away by...

International Review By Magnus.de on 74

Der preiswerte Philips besitzt im Testfeld der teuren Mitbewerber das schwächste Bild, doch es ist im Hinblick auf den Preis und die Größe mehr als überzeugend. Ein letzter Punkt, bei dem Philips den Rotstift angesetzt hat, ist die...

Gute Verarbeitung, benutzerfreundliche Bedienung, die umfangreiche Ausstattung und die insgesamt sehr gute Bild- und Tonqualität lassen den Philips 42PFL7404H das Oberklassen-Duell gewinnen.Herbert BisgesTestredaktion...

International Review By Bild & Ljud Hemma on 67

7000-serien har all exklusiv bildbehandling som giganten Philips har att erbjuda, men räcker det i dessa LED-tider om TV:n fortfarande har vanlig bakbelysning? En smal ram blir allt viktigare när skärmstorleken ökar. Trots sina mastodontiska 52...

International Review By Les Numériques on 80

Philips signe ici un excellent téléviseur pour ceux qui ne regardent pas la TV dans le noir. Les noirs sont un peu trop gris pour cette dernière utilisation. Pour les autres, c’est tout bon...
