Philips 32PFT5603/05 32-Inch Full HD LED TV and Fire TV Stick – Easy to set up lovely picture

Set up was ridiculously easy. I had the freeview channels all set up in minutes and the picture is sharper than my old lg set. However, the sound is reasonable, but not great. Obviously to price a tv for under £200 there are going to be cuts and that is for the speaker system. Yet, it’s fine for my requirements and already have a streaming box to watch netflix etc without requiring the smart functionality.

Great tv excellent picture highly recommend.

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.

Features of Philips 32PFT5603/05 32-Inch Full HD LED TV and Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote

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

Got this telly for the kitchen (daytime telly etc. ) and it’s perfect for that. Not bulky and nice profile, looks good mounted on a wall if you can hide the cables. Sound is ok, not great, wouldn’t bother with music channels though and definitely wouldn’t use this as a main room telly (otherwise the sound will annoy you). About the remote: it supports the hdmi-cec standard (which philips call “easylink”) so you can control some devices plugged in via hdmi with the single remote which is handy. Please note that while it has freeview, it is not a smart tv – if you want netflix, iplayer etc. (and you don’t have a virgin v6 or sky q box with that in-built) you’ll need to get the version that comes with the fire tv stick or get another device like a chromecast which will take up one of your hdmi slots. While the tv has a socket for a wired network connection this is presumably for firmware upgrades only.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Just what the car a a new needed.

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.

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

Great picture, east to set up.

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.

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.

    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.

      1. I should have returned it but time got away from me and now it’s too late. Thought being a phillips it would have been better, very disappointed.

  3. 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.
