Philips 24PFT5303/05 24-Inch Full HD LED TV – Average quality product.

Bought for my sons xbox in his bedroom. Easy to set up and great picture.

Great picture, east to set up.

It has been several years since i owned a television and i usually watch tv on my laptop. Offered the chance to try out this philips tv i thought it might be a good idea – at least when visitors come they have the option of watching tv on a reasonably sized screen. For the rest of the time it is small enough not to dominate a room, or can be easily stored away. I was surprised at how compact the packaging was when the tv arrived, and it is lightweight too (2. 7kg) which means i can easily carry it around and take it upstairs. There is a ‘stand’ which snaps into the back of the tv (and is secured with a couple of screws) and holds the tv upright, at a slight angle, so that from the front it does not appear to have a stand at all. In effect it leans backwards. This looks clean and neat from the front although it means that the angle of the tv can’t be altered. Once plugged in and connected up it is really simple, just following the on-screen instructions, to automatically load all the digital freeview channels. I don’t have any more complex requirements than that and it was straightforward to set up.

Just got the 24 inch version today and happy so far with the tv as picture quality is good when using freeview hd plus when used with a ps4, sound is ok but don’t expect to be blown away only thing that lets it down is the stand which is a bit odd with the lean back why they just didn’t do a normal centre stand i will never know plus the remote and buttons are a little bit on the small side other than that i’m pleased with the tvps yes it will sit on top of a ps4 just.

Great tv excellent picture highly recommend.

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

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.

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

So i’m hovering between i don’t like it and it’s ok. I’m using the tv as a monitor for my pc as my old one had seen better days. I thought, great, it’s going to led with bright colours and easy set up plug and play. I had assumed that when you plug a pc into it via the hdmi cable, the screen would adjust for the best size, wrong. I though it would also adjust to give the best quality and make everything sharp, wrong. It has taken me nearly 24 hours to mess around with the settings, changing the pc graphic card settings and adjusting the colours. But then i noticed that when i was in the settings for the tv, hidden away there is actually a setting for using the tv as a monitor for a pc. So, if you are getting it for that purpose, here’s what to do. Go into the set up, go to all settings, select picture, then advanced, then you will see computer, make sure you highlight it and click ok.

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.

It is nice but the screen is too small. I also do not have bbc 1 and 2. The picture quality is great and the sound is great. After all we are talking about philips here. However, the screen is too small. It reminds me of the screen of a computer pc. However it makes no difference to me as i rarely watch tv. The tv only gets to see the light of day when i have guests. A bigger screen would have been nice though. It would be interesting to know if anybody else has had this problem.

I’m probably a little bit ‘old fashioned’ (or do we say ‘traditional’?) in that i have one main screen / tv, and i’ve always dragged my feet over another screen in the house (okay, other than the monitor for my computer). I’m also of an age where a 22″ screen seems more than adequate, for everything other than watching a film (my first tv was a 14″ colour portable, and that was frivolous?)anyway, i’m really been pleasantly surprised and quite impressed with this ‘little’ tv setup. I’m bought quite a few philips products over the years, as i rate them right up there on ease of use and quality. My expectations are that, they might not have all the latest ‘gadgets’ and ‘gizmos’ (e. Gimmicks?) but it’ll do everything that i need, and it’ll do it well. The tv certainly has disappointed. Un-packing is straightforward (yes, the initial impression will be of a considerably smaller, and lighter box, than the one that the ‘giant’ tv comes in – obviously) with everything that i needed to get started. I was a little dubious about the ‘laid-back’, ‘stand-less’ design, but now that it’s in situ’ i really like it. It keeps the lines clean and simple. First setup was as a ‘digital tv’ with its in-build ‘dvb’ tuner. I’ve got a digital compatible aerial at home, so plugged in and away it went to search and store all the channels. Certainly no longer than i might have expected to scan through, and a fairly simple process. Initial picture quality is actually quite good. I set it up on my desk and viewed it from a good 6′- 10′ away (est.

Good picture and controls but the sound is very tinny.

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

The tv arrives double-boxed by amazon. There are step-by-step instructions in multiple languages but these are straightforward and simple to follow. The only assembly is fitting the stand-bar which requires some pressure to locate before securing the screws. There is a wide range of input and output sockets clearly labelled. After plugging in and switching on you need to make the language selection to bring up easy-to-follow instructions for tuning to your chosen tv source. Once completed the picture quality is sharp with a good colour balance even without adjustment. Turning up the volume reveals this product’s shortcoming. Sound quality is thin with no bass response. To resolve this a sound bar or alternative form of sound reproduction needs to be connected. This product should more accurately be described as a tv/monitor to give a clue as to its likely specification.

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

Just what the car a a new needed.

      1. 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.
