Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Good product, must have most recent software, bad speaker design
Got this TV free from my mother, LOL she was throwing it away due to it constantly shutting off, and rebooting at random times. I brought it home installed the most recent software/firmware which as of this morning was version .334, She only had .308 running.
Tv has been on all day, no problems whatsover. So if you are having the same problem. Be sure to try installing the most recent software. Directions on this sight. This seems to have fixed the problem.
Great picture, only real negative I see is the speaker design. Why on earth would they put the speaker on the back, and facing backwards.... Easily fixed however with the addition of a fowardfacing soundbar and subwoofer

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jtown Great product
I'm very pleased with this TV and highly recommend it. The internet apps are nice and work well. The picture is great. There is great value with this product.
The wireless was a little difficult to set up at first. Perhaps it was my network. It's been working fine now that it is set up.
MediaConnect wasn't working at all at first. I think it started working after I did an update with the TV. There's a bit of a delay from computer to TV, so don't expect to use the the TV like a monitor using MediaConnect. You can buy a VGA cable and it works great that way.
I'm also disappointed with the audio out options. It only has coaxial digital audio out. Not a very common option with speakers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wedgekev1 Awesome TV
I absolutely luv my new Phillips . The picture absolutely rocks . Smart TV is friggin great , luv the ability to stream movies . The TV coming outta the box was easy to set up . The user menu is very user friendly . My only complaint was I purchased a sound bar with my TV . upon set up of sound bar I discovered that it blocked the signal of the remote . Had to return sound bar . But I discovered that I didn't really need the sound bar , because the speakers on TV are really good . All in all I am pretty impressed with myself for picking this TV . Hurray for me .

Maybe because we had a projection TV, but the picture quality is much better than expected. The colors are crisp and true, and all the on-screen adjustments make any changes easy to do. We don't have any additional sound equipment, but the sound from the Phillips can be adjusted to fill our fairly large viewing area. I don't know why it takes so long to display the picture. It seems to go through many internal procedures before any picture is presented on the screen. All in all, the Phillips TV has been a great investment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hambone38 great product
I have a Philips LCD TV for three months now, and overall I am happy with it. Great picture, great sound level and a nice design. The only issue I have is with the media connect function. Using the media connect function is not that great, because when yo use this function, there is a noticeable lag between the TV and the computer. It is better to just hook up the computer to the TV using a HDMI cable, but overall it is a great product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by review Product Wi-Fi Media Connect software does not work.
Purchased this TV to use the Wi-Fi Media Connect feature for slide shows.
Tried installing the software on four different computers, it would only work for a short period on one computer. Three computers run Windows 7 64 and did not work or find the TV. The computer that ran XP did work sometimes but even though the computer was right next to the TV the signal strength was weak and repeatedly disconnected after a few pictures.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GregH Ghosting of sport images
Not impressed with the quality of sports/actions images. While watching live action sports (football, golf, baseball, etc.) the images are not crisp; for instance golf balls and footballs in flight are shown as multiple balls instead of a single crisp image when in 1080i. I'm hopeful that this can be improved by software updates as I have not found a config setting to make the improvement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Plwzrd We love it
This is the 4th lcd flat panel. The 1st Phillips. Can't say enough good things. The high def is crystal clear. Put a blu ray in a media pc I just finished. The 1080 satelite is great. The bluray is spectacular. The software update process worked 1st try. Very painless and it improved the built in wifi immediately. Priced very reasonably and delivery to boot at my door in about 6 days.
