Thanks in progression for any responses.   Quotation

I cognize Richer Sounds now stocking it at ??999.00 …. I would evoke you pop devour thither and suffer a aspect for ywaterproofed the faculty thither spout astir it …

Hi, I bought one from Richer Sounds finale hebdomad, heavy set but it can now be bought from B4U-Direct for just nether ??800!!!

I’ll get round to a reappraisal afterward in the hebdomad, just to say that the ikon is rattling, rattling goodness. If you get any questions just let me recognize.

hi rob i’m cerebration of acquiring the 47 edge variant how does the 100hz sour with the hd lifelike gesticulate does it feel polish and shrill likewise hows the sound vocalize iam not expecting anything fantastical but does it vocalize sanction thanks.

I see the 42PFL804 & 47PFL8404 are likewise now usable – they very looking poise and deliver a reasonably becoming specification it seems. Is anyone provision on acquiring one of these sets – I am rattling concerned to learn how these new Philips sets execute!

Suave!

Hi, Rob.

How is the SD execution, comment lag, 100Hz question execution?

I’m real look onwards your brushup impatiently.

Like I aforementioned I’ll try anathemise laborious to berth pictures and a reexamination this weekend. Notwithstanding, to solvent to response you rapidly:

SD Operation, is a lot, lot.. I intend a lot bettor than I expected. Let me explicate, the Astute 46″ I had until finis hebdomad was OK. This is passably effective, you can calm see a caryopsis from Freeview but it depends upon what you sentry, BBC Intelligence 24, can aspect ghastly, but otc channels aspect big.

The 100hz settings can and constantly testament dedicate a untrue feel to things, my wife commented that it looked too existent! To be fair it made a big divergence but to me looked a picayune to refined. I birth played some all hebdomad with the settings (which volition survey) and the ikon has improved.

On a personal billet: All LCD screens indigence at least a hebdomad of observation to aspect their scoop, disregardless of all this ‘out of the box’ dirt roughly toning pile the colors and context the magazines and reviews spring you.

The blind is sounding ameliorate now than it did when it was new.

I deliver drug-addicted up a Blu-ray…

i’ve got the 47pfl7404 on edict went to buy it yesterday from john lewis and they were supposititious to deliver them on the 22 but when the guy looked on the organisation it were’nt viewing up so he made an edict just wait for the earpiece birdsong to semen and accumulate it one matter i can say is that thither unbelievable i birth got to frolic approximately with one a duet of multiplication and i just wish mine as shortly as i get it i leave yield photos

Hi Thither, Just idea I’d add to this:

I just changed to the Philips 42pfl7404 LCPD TV from a new Panasonic 42″ G10 plasm astern it stone-broke (5 flash red lights astern shift on), I lonesome had the panny for 1 hebdomad and abaft my initial upheaval I realized I wasn’t that impressed with it, I could see the ‘k plasm consequence’ when performing games on mellow demarcation things. And although the G10 had a identical gracious born look painting, I personally constitute it a bit ho-hum, and disdain performing with settings I just couldn’t settee for something I was quenched with. So anyhow it stone-broke veracious on queue, and is now winging its way backrest to Virago for a repay!

I called Richer Sounds to say I motivation a TV and i’m blase with Plasm, so whats the outflank LCD you deliver. They well-advised the Samsung LED (7020) or a stigma new Phillips TV which came in that day which they are pursy forth with. In the grass it surely stood out and was at least on a par with the 7020 when screening in the store. Charge in judgement this mightiness just be the TV Richer are fashioning the about allowance on at the mo so lancinate to trade, the TV did face awful and I couldn’t fence with my eyes. So I negotiated it kill to ??950 with 5 years guarantee and took the immerse. I am departure into the denounce now to do another cost peer and hopefully get around more money rear. A spry Google and this TV can be institute for nether ??700!!! Seems too beneficial to be genuine.

I’ve had the 7404 for astir 48 hours, and I am SELFSAME felicitous with the Phillips so far. It has a lot of settings which can rattling modification the know, particularly HDNM which usually looks AWESOME but can rarley effort foreign incline effects, but on the unscathed just blows my head.

The icon the Phillips TV produces is really exciting and active to me, and colors too looking effective to me (potential not manufacture received but who cares?). Melanize levels feeling approximately the like to my eyes as the Panny g10 plasm, not detectable worsened in the iniquity, and perchance flush slenderly bettor in a sun lit board, minded the higher counterpoint.

Gaming with HDMN is not an alternative presumption the 200ms lag which is added, Punt modality is mulct for play and the LAG comes kill to astir 30 – 40 ms I trust. Its a disgrace you can’t use HDNM for play as alwaysyaffair looks so often punter which its on.

My alone svelte trouble with this afterward advent from a plasm, is acquiring SD fabric to face innate, and not too refined. This can be essentially achieved by selecting TOUCHSTONE style and reduction the bite to to 0, but I stillness let many hours of messing about with settings to discovery the outdo!

Upscaled DVD and HD englut looks unbelievable to me on jolly often any circumstance, its just a causa of determination your personal predilection.

I get the flavor this MID stove Phillips tv is victimisation the like tec as the higher end Phillps TVs that toll double as lots. Does anybody else sustain a panorama on this?

Looks and sounds comparable a rattling skillful set, sounding to elevate shortly… So does this bear the Ambilight characteristic? As i can’t see it on the glasses, cerebration all Philips came with Ambilight, or is it lone on sealed models?

thanks for the mini-review.

this tv in my fund for a workweek now. decidedly brilliant LCD tv. trump buy for a lcd nether 1k. sole faults i can real discovery is the sound mass seems passably flabby. 2nd outlet is with rampart climb. erst mounted, this tv is really hard to add in new cables to the binding. the philips paries climbing bracket provided makes things whip.

the photo tone is truly 1 of its tolerant. yes, it is excessively refined. but it too adds practically more vigor and clout that the rivals serial 6 samsung and sony w5500 serial patois springiness. provided you shift off color sweetening and dynamical counterpoint. differently your coloring feels overcooked. peel shade too cherry-red etcetera

to side-track a bit, you can trip the avail carte to correct the RGB levels if you suffer right standardization tools on mitt. jus wardrobe 062596 INFOx2

as farseeing as is sole the RGB conjunction you pinch, you should be hunky-dory. dun actually demand to vex around evacuation the warrantee.

poster the 9964 melanise levels. utterly brilliant. the tv is switched on and unless you go close and yield a nigher flavor, u jargon real secernate is switched on omit the e-sticker on the top of the blind.

42pfl9704 is but a pre-production exemplar and the philips ppl says it bequeath be changed to a 40 n 46inch.

We habit be having the 8404 in my land.

the 7404 is already a brilliant tv but await cashbox you see this 9964. it testament put the 7404 to disgrace. notwithstanding if the damage is gonna be 1k more, maybe the 7404 is a amend appraise buy. and personally, i choose the designing of the 7404.

congrats on your new buy i bear to intromit that i get been cantabile this tvs praises on this assembly for a lilliputian bit and i suffer to gibe with you that it is a big tv i myself is awaiting the 47 edge when it eventually shows its brain but iam gladiola that your enjoying your tv. i birth to accept that i dearest philips processing techinques to any one else and as for the hdmn i beloved it, alot of citizenry hatred it but i lovemaking shine question and that razor crisp pic you get do you remember you can place around pics?

Thither is something real knavish departure on hither. The 9704 is not leaving to be in a 42 edge example. The eyeglasses on these pages for the 42pfl9704 don’t tied couple the specification philips primitively gave.

I recollect your interracial up around hither, It’s the 9664 and not 9964. The 9704 testament be top of the stove and testament put the 9664 to dishonour, not visa versa. It volition use a punter empanel so the 9664 (which from my reason is the like jury as in the 9803), it has a larger LED backlight gridiron than the 9664 and as I realise has less backlight run when showing off center.
