Philips 6000 series Smart LED TV 40PFL6606H 102 cm (40") Full HD 1080p DVB-T/C with Pixel Plus HD is rated
Rated 4 out of
Very good, but with some important flaws.
I have been very satisfied with the quality of picture and sound (with DVB-T box connected to SCART). The picture & sound is the best I have seen compared to several other screens in the same price range.
The design of the set is also a big plus, looks great mounted on a wall.
Software responsiveness if not good - just browsing the Home menu seems very slowish, and trying to change the volume immediately on start-up shows the volume bar with several seconds in lag.
Network connectivity works just fine, I have been able to stream several movies through LAN with no problems.
No subtitle support OF ANY KIND for streaming movies is just plain nonsense, and it makes the option to stream video through the network a big pain. At least .SRT support should be implemented as soon as possible.
When picture is set to a high contrast, the TV set has a bad buzzing noise in the background, heard clearly at 4-5m distance. I am still not prepared to take a brand new TV set to the service, but I might have to do it eventually. Standard/Energy Saving picture setting keeps the buzzing sound transparent.
NetTV works OK, the TuneIn radio app is very good. But again, browsing through applications is slower than expected.

Very clear picture, especially in HD. The whole set is easy to use and not bad sound either. Ambilight very nice although we only use it from time to time at night. Just wish there could be an update to get freeview in HD.
