I recently purchased both the Philips 47" LCD and Home theater, details below.
Philips 47" Class Full-HD 1080p LCD HDTV, 47PFL3603D/F7
Philips Home Theater Audio System w/ Upconverting DVD Player & iPod Dock, HTS3565D/37 I was replacing a 9 year old JVC TV, technics Dolby, and toshiba 4800N DVD, plus speakers.
All that my wife and I can say is WOW!! The sound systems is fantastic, the ease of installation was amazing, and the color coded wires worked perfectly. Installing the base on the LCD (included) was a little tricky, but two people can manage in 5 mins. Installation of the home theater was a snap, as it took longer to sort out the location and length of the speakers than anything else. I had to purchase an HDMI cable, and will need a second to install my HD DVR from direct tv.
The automatic mode is very nice for TV, and the adjustments/preferences only took 5 mins. Removing my old gear took the longest, then unpacking the new gear and laying out, then "snapping" together.
All in all, i was about 1.5 hours, from start to finish, for my removal and installation I did purchase the extended warranty for both, and a high end surge suppressor.
