Philips 32PFL3506/F7


A 32 inch LCD HDTV at a good price

We’re among those people who still think TVs are one of the best things ever invented. So when we hear that a new one has been released or released a while back, we get all giddy about it. And then we want to test it as quickly as humanely possible. Philips is one of those companies with a knack of designing beautiful products. Especially TV sets. The 32PFL3506/F7 came out last year and it was very pleasant news when we heard about it. We sharpened our sense and wrote this review.

Adaptable design

A very quick visit on Amazon’s site and the price of this Philips 32PFL3506/F7 caught our immediate attention: $268.00. Naturally we couldn’t miss the opportunity to review a new TV so we jumped into the wagon. And what a ride it was.

In way of introduction, the design of the device is the first thing to cross our mind. Philips never struck us as a manufacturer of ugly devices. The 32PFL3506/F7 did a very good job of keeping our interest in it raised. Its silvery black body is elegant and modern-looking at the same time. It’s not characterized by excessive additions or the kind. We put it in our room and it received many praising glances from our friends who chanced on it. Philips themselves bragged about just how very adaptable this device is, even if you place it in the kitchen. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but you get the point.Philips-32PFL3506F7

The stability of the stand was very useful, since we have a dog and it likes to jump on things. Before moving the TV to that particular room, we prepared to experience some back aches. But in fact we didn’t. The weight is not at all too much to handle. Neither are the width, height and so on.

Digital Crystal Clear technology

Philips uses only the best technologies for its device’s displays. The 32PFL3506/F7 has one which is a 32″ LCD with 1366 x 768 pixels of resolution . We’ll never grow tired of saying just how much we liked what we saw on the screen. The imaging technologies used by the TV capture a whole spectrum of quality. That is reflected in the details images are treated to. Not only that, but other things need to be said about the good performance of the set. Like the colors, contrast and sharpness. Thanks to the Digital Crystal Clear technology you’ll get to immerse yourself in whatever it is you watch.

During the tests we did on the Philips 32PFL3506/F7 a lot of work went into images without flicker. We have to hand it to this device: we weren’t disturbed by anything out of the ordinary. And that includes the said flickers and motion blur.

Good image provided

On top of the very good image quality we had very good sound quality. Coming all the way from the speakers and the Incredible Surround technology. The Dolby Digital output took sound to a whole new level of quality when we plugged in a home theater system.

The amount of power eaten up by the TV wasn’t dramatic. In standby mode, only 1W was used.

USB and HDMI ports are part of many devices. They allow all sorts of possibilities to expand your entertainment needs. Philips’ latest HDTV features them as well. DVD Players, game consoles and many more work with them.

Review conclusion

The Philips 32PFL3506/F7 can be almost anything you want it to be. Its performance, specs, versatility and price are big time winners.
