This TV has fantastic picture quality, great sound and is fully adjustable for everything. The other TV's I looked at with 200-300 reviews with an average of 4 1/2 stars seemed good...but I felt this one had better sound quality and functionality after comparing and it sure does in my experience. Buy it!

I bought a Philips LCD TV primarily for the "philips name" which I thought stood for quality. I was dissapointed when the main board quit less than 2 years later however I was thoroughly frustrated when the company refused to stand behind their product. Representatives were courteous enough however they are simply powerless to help customers who have opted out of the "service contract" sold at point of sale. This is a low quality product with a name tag that means nothing and a price tag that suggests it should. You would be better served to by a cheaper brand with the understanding that the life expectancy is low.

This is a very good TV for the money. My only problem was the shipping company. I had to call seven times before I spoke to someone who knew what they were doing and the item was delivered the next day. They sat on it for over a week. When the truck was in my area the driver called me and asked to meet at a near by shopping center for the delivery. Never experienced anything like it. Walmart should stick to reliable, reputable co.'s and stop trying to save a couple of cents. Don't think I'll ever have them ship anything again.

my complaint is with the mfg. of the tv, when I got it home, it would not accept the Direct TV program, I called the customer service and they advised me that it was not the tv, it was the Direct tv program. I called Direct TV and they had a repairman out in 2 days and found the TV to be no good, I called the mfg. again and they told me to bring it to a repair center over 45 miles away, I returned the TV to Walmart, and purchassed another brand and I am verry Happy with it. Phillips Customer Service was very rude to me and I will never purchass anything with thier name on it.

I bought this model because I have 2 other Philips lcd tv's. I also work for Philips. This tv is a piece of junk. The picture quality is terrible. I played with the picture settings for two days but could not get the picture quality to match my other tv's, that are 5 years older. The fleshtones are way off. Faces appear washed out, like the the picture is too bright. A close-up of someones face has a reddish tint on one side and a greenish tint on the other. This looks like a cheap no name tv, that Philips has slapped their name on. I couldn't stand looking at this tv, so it went back in the box and back to Walmart. I'm glad I bought this at Walmart, made returning it so much simpler. I bought a Sanyo, that I am much happier with. I saved a couple of bucks and got a slightly larger tv with much better picture quality. An added bonus is, that it is assembled in Mexico, that's almost the US.

I got this TV on sale to replace my old TV that was broken. It was a great purchase. Getting a $550 TV for $380 was a great buy. The colors are crisp and the pictures are sharp. I've owned it for over 3 months now and have no complaints other than location of speakers. On this TV, the speakers are on the bottom panel pointed straight down at the floor, rather than forward toward you like with most TVs. Where this TV is located, the sound travels into the next room more easily than the old TV did. This results in having to keep the volume turned down a bit below normal levels, but it's something I can deal with. The side inputs are also nice on this TV. I have some electronics off to the left side of the TV, that required stretching a 3 foot HDMI cable almost taut to reach in the back input on my old TV. That's no longer a problem on this TV. This is a great TV, and with it on sale when I bought it (and still on sale at the time of this review), it is a great deal if you're looking to buy a new one. A 40" TV that retails for $550, getting it for $380 is the first thing that got me interested in this TV. From that point on, the other TVs that I was looking at and considering didn't stack up in side-by-side comparison and this was the one for me.

Great Value for money, picture quality and sound quality is better than most other TVs in it's class and price range. Not as thin as newer LED TV's but that's to be expected.

I am a big fan of Philips brand appliances and this television has not disappointed! It has a GREAT picture for being just 60Hz, far away scenes can appear a tad grainy at times but close ups are extremely CLEAR, true 1080p HD quality and the overall picture quality in general is top notch! The picture quality is even great if your watching tv from the side! This tv also shines when watching blu-ray movies from it with the 3 HDMI outlets it has. If you are a budget minded person like me and ditched cable for netflix, you will also enjoy decent (free) digital tv if you add a 10.00 Philips rabbit ears antenna (also available at Walmart) when you use the auto programming option. The sound is good and loud for me, I usually have it no higher the 35 out of 100 which is fairly loud. I don't know why people need to have such loud volume? Of course I live in a tiny apartment by myself so maybe that's why I don't need it too loud lol. This tv is also an Energy Star rated appliance in case your wondering too. Like I said this tv is still good as new and it's going on 2 years and I am very satisfied and haven't had any problems what so ever with it!

We like the tv and feel that it was a good price for it. A little disappointed with he HD quality. We expected a huge difference going from a small tv without HD to this larger one with HD. Not that it has a bad picture it's just not as good as we expected. However it is good and the sound is good, we are happy with the purchase.
