“ Philips 14PV 203 - 14" CRT TV with built-in VCR - silver shadow „
* Prices may differ from that shown
I purchased this television as I needed a new one for the bedroom, as the last one fell off the cabinet and never worked again. I purchased it brand new from a local tv dealership, who has been there for 15 years. I paid at the time £71.60 for it. I have lots off old VHS tapes that I still love to watch, so purchased this instead of a DVD combo.
The picture is really good, I have freeview in the bedroom, and the picture quality comes up trumps. As for tuning in the tv, its very straight forward, all you need to do is click on the menu button then use the arrow buttons to select the option that you want. Pretty straight forward.
The sound is good, but not as good as past televisions I have owned, sounds like a boxy sound, hard to explain, but just not crisp enough. But the sound is still only what you would expect from a little tv but it could be better.
There are quiet a few good features like Teletext which is useful for finding out news, sport results and so on. It also has a built in VHS player. This is great because you don't have to buy a separate VHS player, even though I had one in the room, it was old anyway, and this inbuilt one does the job just fine. Also it comes with a nice remote control that is easy to handle and use. The remote control uses 2 AA batteries which was supplied as well. The television can also be connected to other equipment such as satellite, computer consoles, video and also headphones.
Overall it is a good television but not the greatest in the world. But I do recommend for maybe in a kitchen or spare room. The only thing that let it down slightly was the sound not being crisp enough and not everyone uses VHS anymore.

Philips 14PV203 is one of the most sophisticated and easy-to-use TV-video combi on the market. It combines a nifty design and a high functionality with the comfort you need. Digital Studio Picture Control keeps checking the quality of your videotapes and reproduces the best possible picture performance. It optimizes the playback quality measuring the characteristics of the tape, adapting the resolution and reducing the picture noise. The Teletext contains an extremely precise time information. Your TV-VCR combi knows that and during the installation, it automatically reads out this precious information. You can then use your combi as the clock reference in your home, as the time is readjusted every day. You even don't have to worry about changing from summer to wintertime! Start a recording with the touch of a single button. Each further touch of the record button adds 30 minutes of recording time. The actual end time will be automatically calculated by the set and displayed.
