“ Philips 15PFL4122 - 15" LCD TV - 720p - black, silver „
This is quite a nice little tele. It fits in perfectly with a smaller than average bedroom. Doesn't take up too much space, and is still stylish and good to watch.
It looks good with its stylish black with silver trim. Which tends to be the way that most flat screen televisons are going at the moment. With the remote for the tele keeping in theme with this. In both style and shape. Also, with the small round stand underneath, it gives it the extra height on a bedside table/desk. This is detachable and therefore the t.v can be attached to the wall. Which is another good feature of this kind of tele. It is a space saving factor and would also look very good mounted directly onto the wall or onto a bracket and stand. However, with the screen being quite small, it is probably not advisable to place it too far away from the bed/chair/sofa or whatever you would be on. Also, if this is done, buy a stand that pivets/rotates to aid visibility.
The logo on the tele keeps with the style, being silver and located within the black body. This ensures that there is no distraction to the eye when the tele is on. This can also be said of the standby light. Being situated in the lower corner of the screen it is not noticable when there is a program on. It is green when the set is on, red on standby and off when the t.v. is completely off. The same as all other televisions.
When you are watching the tele, it is nothing special. Just an average picture. However, this may be affected by the aerial being used. The roof aerial that is in use on the set. Still, for a small set, it is still quite a good picture and is visible. However, as with all LCD screens, if you are at the wrong angle to watch it, it seems darker/lighter than it actually is. But overall the screen is good for watching most things soaps/general tele/sport/films. Although obviously its better to watch films on a bigger screen.
The sound is very good quality. The inbuilt loudspeakers make much better sound that your normal/average television. However, i feel they are put to waste when you are just watching normal tele. I can think of better uses than Peggy Mitchell from Eastenders with loudspeakers. Its better for usage on things like Match of the Day or films. (Which the screen doesn't really facilitate.) It goes quite loud, but i never really go past 25 and have it on around 15 on average. This is the type of volume to have if there is someone in the room next to you and you don't want to disturb them.
Overall it is quite a good tele for the price, and i would recommend it for people with small rooms or for parents of 10-13 year olds. This is because it is still stylish, but easy to use. It also won't encourage too much television watching. I have found that it is a good television and have had no problems with it at all so far.
Here is an LCD TV that not only enhances the décor of your home with its European styling and slim design, but also provides a great audio-visual experience with Crystal Clear III and Incredible Surround.
This XGA display with state-of-the-art LCD screen technology has a widescreen HD resolution of 1024 x 768p pixels. It produces brilliant flicker-free progressive scan pictures with optimum brightness and superb colors. This vibrant and sharp image will provide you with an enhanced viewing experience.
Crystal Clear III combines a whole range of enhancements to provide a better picture. They include a 2D Comb filter, Dynamic contrast, Blue stretch and Green enhancement so that you always get the most natural looking colors.
Progressive Scan doubles the vertical resolution of the image resulting in a noticeably sharper picture. Instead of sending a field comprising the odd lines to the screen first, followed by the field with the even lines, both fields are written at one time. A full image is created instantaneously, using the maximum resolution. At such a speed, your eye perceives a sharper picture with no line structure.
Incredible Surround is an audio technology from Philips that dramatically magnifies the sound field to immerse you in the audio. Using state-of-the-art electronic phase shifting, Incredible Surround mixes sounds from left and right in such a way that it expands the virtual distance between the two speakers. This wider spread greatly enhances the stereo effect and creates a more natural sound dimension. Incredible Surround allows you to experience total surround with greater depth and width of sound, without the use of additional speakers.
The teletext is a common system transmitted by most broadcasters. The 1000 page smart text feature gives you extremely fast access to information when changing pages.
HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.
With PC input you can connect your TV to a computer and use the TV as a PC monitor.
