Philips 22PFT5303/05 22-Inch Full HD LED TV : Decent image, horrible audio

Great picture, east to set up.

Image is satisfying for movies and video games up to ps3. Sounds like a mobile phone speaker. If you have it as your main tv, you will need speakers.

Smaller tv required for my sons caravan.

Excellent screen, slick and looks great when hung on the wall. This was bought for he bedroom so whilst the sound is a little weak, it’s not bad for a small room. Screen is crystal clear and was very easy to set up.

Full HD TV with Pixel Plus HD processing giving detailed and natural-looking pictures

The sound is tinny, which others have also said, but if you overlook this, the screen quality is superb, and for the price i paid £150 – an absolute steal.

Bought this for our grandaughter when she went to uni. Great tv, easy to install etc.

Purchased because it can be used as a / monitor / watch tv /watch free view / use for c c t v monitoring, al in 1080p.

Good tv, i needed a tv with limited space to fit under project screen for during the day without having to move it at nighttime to watch projector as it doesn’t have the extra height from a usual stand it’s just the job.

It helped that i had read several reviews and knew what to expect. Otherwise i might have been less happy – because i only found the quick start guide before recycling the cardboard carton. When i removed the bottom layer of polystyrene, i discovered the guide, buried at the bottom of the boxif you take time to explore all the settings, there are ample opportunities to adjust the sound and vision.

Freeview HD, giving you access to a wide variety of channels without any subscription cost

I don’t usually bother writing reviews but am doing so after almost not buying this telly because of negative reviews. After doing lots of research on 32 inch tv’s i decided on the phillips as it ticked all my boxes; not a smart tv, full hd, 1080 pixels and white. It arrived really quickly, was incredibly easy to set up, looks fantastic and the picture quality is amazing. The remote activates my amazon fire stick so does away with a remote. Overall we are really pleased with it and glad i chose it.

Very pleased with the picture quality, after using the many available adjustments it is possible to get really natural looking colours, unfortunately the sound is very tinny and quiet however you adjust it, yes it is a flat screen tv so the speakers can’t be great due to the lack of depth but this tv is at least three times thicker than my little tablet which has far better sound, more volume and even some bass so there really is no excuse for this.

Great tv excellent picture highly recommend.

Connect your USB memory-stick or other multimedia device to the USB port on your TV to enjoy photos, videos and music with the easy to use onscreen content browser.

I run a bnb and have installed these tv’s in my rooms.

Easy to set up using the on screen instructions taking hardly any time to scan for all the channels available. Hd picture quality is as you would expect, glossy white finish is a nice touch. One of the cheapest televisions around for the size and a major brand makes it a bargain. Fits in perfectly with the white furniture, a definite recommendation.

Looks great, you can’t see any stand so it fits perfectly on an appropriately sized bookshelf. I have it set up with one of the new fire tv 4k sticks (bought for the volume and power remote not 4k obviously). I haven’t had to use the philips remote apart from initial setup; there’s nothing wrong with the philips remote but the fire tv one is outstanding. The tv will even let you turn it on and off with alexa, my wife thinks this is great. Great tv for kitchen or bedroom. I would have liked an hdr /bt2020 version though.

I was worried reading the other reviews but just received this tv (28 aug 2018) and it must have new software as it’s unplugged daily (installed in our motorhome) and does not need to go through any setup when powered up again. Picture quality is great – and freeview works well. Sound is pretty poor compared to a big 50″ tv but acceptable in our motorhome and a sound bar could be used if you wanted deeper bass or higher volumes. For the price it’s a good deal.

Slim bezels with a lean-back design

Good picture and controls but the sound is very tinny.

This was bought for the bedroom and the picture and sound quality are great. It’s a nice size and very slim.

Just had sky q installed with this tv we can if we require watch and listen to which ever program we like.

Well for the money you can’t beat it, fantastic picture, the sound is ok ,,i use a b&o sound bar, i would use on any tv as all modern tv’s have bad sound, buy it you can’t go wrong.

Cant see the point of the internet connection. Sound quality is adjustable from poor to o. With limited volume upper limit.

I loved this item, the picture is crystal clear, the size is perfect for my room.

  1. This review is from : Philips 22PFT5303/05 22-Inch Full HD LED TV with Freeview HD – Black (2018 Model)

    This tv suffers two problems. The first is a pain though minor: it keeps on forgetting the location settings and so shows three nagging screens of set-up whenever turned on again. The second is much more significant: the screen has uneven lighting across the image, showing large dark spots on all four corners and down both left and right hand sides. I contacted both amazon support and then, at their suggestion, directly to philips support. The latter stopped responding after i sent them a photo of a test signal they asked me to load onto the screen that showed the problem quite clearly. So a shoddy tv from a company with shoddy technical support. It is now back in its box and i’ll be returning it tomorrow.

      1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Would have preferred Samsung but could not get required spec (32" full HD) with white finish says:
        Goes to 3 consecutive install screens every time you switch it on. You have to hit ok 3 times to get standard tv operation. Reported to phillips support. Apparently it’s a new model so they assume they have a software bug and hopefully new software available soon. Seems to be a very obvious bug to me and should not have been ina release version. Software has been updated twice in the last few weeks but so far no fix for the above problem. Called phillips back after 2 weeks and they seemed a bit vague re progress.
