I set out to find a replacement TV for my ageing old CRT, There are so many to choose I wanted HD for my kids Xbox 360 and are SKY HD. I looked around various sites and decided to buy the Philips 26PF5321/10 26-inch HDTV-ready flat-panel. This at the time was one of Philips latest technology LCD screens featuring 1,366 x 768 wxga screen, with a 3d digital filter to eliminate dot and colour bleeding, this enhances the finer details of the display picture and the LCD I have noticed overall. The TV was easy to set-up as it has 2 HDMI imputs and 2 scart socket on the back as well as the old favourite aerial imput. Tv scanned all the channels and actually set them all up correctly with me only needing to fine tune channel 5, crappy aerial signal.
What I notice from this tv is whatever u throw at it picture size wise the screen automatically adjust it to the correct size 16:9 or 4:3 it also adjusts the sharpness, colour and contrast to suit the picture. The TV has five picture settings and flat speakers that give 5 watts per channel, which is ample for my needs.
U can also use the TV as a PC monitor with the maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 @ 75hz. The remote control and menus could be a bit better to much flicking before getting a manual adjustment. The TV's viewing angle is pretty good and withstands the morning blur off the sun through the window; a neat feature is FM radio built in. The image when using normal TV is clear but when on sky HD the image is just stunning clearness and crisp and the TV's virtual Dolby surround makes it a perfect TV for both normal TV watching and gaming.
I paid £ 579.99 for this and in my opinion best I could buy in that price range.
Here is a wonderful new TV that not only gives you great picture and sound but also modern styling and a quality finish. It features Digital Crystal Clear for natural, vivid images and Virtual Dolby Surround for superb audio.
