Philips 43PFT5503/05 43-Inch Full HD LED TV – Decent image, horrible audio

Appears to be great, you are not able to see any stand so it suits properly on an properly sized bookshelf. I have it set up with just one of the new hearth tv 4k sticks (acquired for the volume and electric power distant not 4k obviously). I have not had to use the philips remote aside from original set up there’s very little erroneous with the philips distant but the hearth tv just one is fantastic. The tv will even permit you flip it on and off with alexa, my wife thinks this is terrific. Excellent tv for kitchen area or bedroom.

So i’m hovering amongst i you should not like it and it’s alright. I am making use of the tv as a keep track of for my personal computer as my old one particular experienced found much better days. I imagined, great, it can be heading to led with shiny colours and easy established up plug and participate in. I experienced assumed that when you plug a computer into it by way of the hdmi cable, the display screen would modify for the best dimension, completely wrong. I nevertheless it would also alter to give the most effective high-quality and make every thing sharp, wrong. It has taken me practically 24 hrs to mess about with the configurations, modifying the personal computer graphic card configurations and altering the colors. But then i found that when i was in the configurations for the tv, concealed away there is truly a environment for applying the tv as a monitor for a computer system. So, if you are receiving it for that reason, this is what to do. Go into the set up, go to all options, choose picture, then state-of-the-art, then you will see laptop, make guaranteed you highlight it and click on alright.

Excellent picture, east to established up.

Graphic is enjoyable for videos and video game titles up to ps3. Appears like a cellular cell phone speaker. If you have it as your most important tv, you will require speakers.

It has been a number of years since i owned a television and i ordinarily watch tv on my laptop. Provided the likelihood to try out out this philips tv i assumed it may possibly be a superior notion – at least when visitors come they have the option of seeing tv on a moderately sized display screen. For the relaxation of the time it is modest plenty of not to dominate a place, or can be conveniently stored away. I was surprised at how compact the packaging was when the tv arrived, and it is lightweight much too (2. 7kg) which means i can easily carry it around and acquire it upstairs. There is a ‘stand’ which snaps into the again of the tv (and is secured with a couple of screws) and retains the tv upright, at a slight angle, so that from the entrance it does not surface to have a stand at all. In impact it leans backwards. This appears to be clean and neat from the front though it indicates that the angle of the tv cannot be altered. At the time plugged in and linked up it is seriously basic, just next the on-display screen directions, to quickly load all the digital freeview channels. I really do not have any additional intricate needs than that and it was easy to set up.

I was nervous studying the other assessments but just acquired this tv (28 aug 2018) and it need to have new software program as it is unplugged day-to-day (put in in our motorhome) and does not have to have to go as a result of any set up when run up once more. Photo quality is terrific – and freeview operates effectively. Seem is fairly very poor in comparison to a huge 50′ tv but satisfactory in our motorhome and a seem bar could be employed if you wanted further bass or better volumes. For the price tag it is a fantastic offer.

Just what the vehicle a a new required.

Just obtained the 24 inch variation these days and content so significantly with the tv as photo high-quality is superior when using freeview hd in addition when utilized with a ps4, seem is okay but really don’t be expecting to be blown absent only issue that allows it down is the stand which is a bit odd with the lean back again why they just didn’t do a usual centre stand i will in no way know as well as the remote and buttons are a tiny little bit on the modest facet other than that i am happy with the tvps indeed it will sit on top of a ps4 just.

Great photo and controls but the sound is really tinny.

Established up was ridiculously quick. I had the freeview channels all set up in minutes and the photo is sharper than my outdated lg established. Nevertheless, the seem is acceptable, but not wonderful. Naturally to price tag a tv for below £200 there are likely to be cuts and that is for the speaker process. Nonetheless, it really is high-quality for my demands and presently have a streaming box to observe netflix etcetera with no requiring the wise functionality.

I really don’t ordinarily hassle composing assessments but am performing so immediately after pretty much not acquiring this telly for the reason that of detrimental evaluations. Just after accomplishing tons of investigation on 32 inch tv’s i determined on the phillips as it ticked all my bins not a wise tv, full hd, 1080 pixels and white. It arrived definitely immediately, was exceptionally uncomplicated to established up, appears to be like fantastic and the picture excellent is incredible. The remote activates my amazon hearth stick so does away with a distant. All round we are seriously pleased with it and happy i chose it.

It is good but the display screen is too compact. I also do not have bbc one and 2. The image good quality is terrific and the audio is great. Right after all we are chatting about philips right here. Nevertheless, the display screen is much too little. It reminds me of the monitor of a computer computer system. On the other hand it helps make no variance to me as i rarely observe tv. The tv only gets to see the gentle of day when i have friends. A even larger screen would have been awesome although. It would be attention-grabbing to know if anyone else has had this trouble.

I’m probably a minimal little bit ‘old fashioned’ (or do we say ‘traditional’?) in that i have just one primary screen / tv, and i’ve always dragged my feet over an additional monitor in the house (ok, other than the watch for my personal computer). I am also of an age exactly where a 22′ display looks additional than ample, for almost everything other than watching a film (my very first tv was a 14′ color moveable, and that was frivolous?)in any case, i am genuinely been pleasantly shocked and really amazed with this ‘little’ tv set up. I am acquired fairly a number of philips items more than the several years, as i charge them ideal up there on relieve of use and high quality. My expectations are that, they might not have all the latest ‘gadgets’ and ‘gizmos’ (e. Gimmicks?) but it’s going to do everything that i have to have, and it’s going to do it well. The tv undoubtedly has dissatisfied. Un-packing is uncomplicated (yes, the preliminary perception will be of a noticeably scaled-down, and lighter box, than the a person that the ‘giant’ tv will come in – certainly) with almost everything that i wanted to get began. I was a small doubtful about the ‘laid-back’, ‘stand-less’ style and design, but now that it really is in situ’ i definitely like it. It keeps the strains thoroughly clean and easy. Initial set up was as a ‘digital tv’ with its in-create ‘dvb’ tuner. I’ve received a electronic suitable aerial at home, so plugged in and absent it went to look for and shop all the channels. Absolutely no more time than i could have envisioned to scan by way of, and a reasonably easy method. First photo high-quality is really very superior. I set it up on my desk and viewed it from a good 6′- 10′ away (est.

The tv arrives double-boxed by amazon. There are stage-by-action guidance in various languages but these are uncomplicated and simple to follow. The only assembly is fitting the stand-bar which requires some stress to find in advance of securing the screws. There is a broad vary of enter and output sockets evidently labelled. Immediately after plugging in and switching on you want to make the language collection to provide up effortless-to-stick to directions for tuning to your preferred tv supply. As soon as finished the photograph high quality is sharp with a superior colour stability even without the need of adjustment. Turning up the volume reveals this product’s shortcoming. Sound good quality is slim with no bass response. To take care of this a seem bar or alternate form of audio copy requires to be linked. This products should far more accurately be explained as a tv/observe to give a clue as to its probably specification.

Obtained this telly for the kitchen (daytime telly and so forth. ) and it’s fantastic for that. Not bulky and great profile, looks fantastic mounted on a wall if you can hide the cables. Sound is alright, not excellent, would not bother with music channels while and unquestionably wouldn’t use this as a key space telly (in any other case the sound will annoy you). About the remote: it supports the hdmi-cec typical (which philips phone “easylink”) so you can command some equipment plugged in through hdmi with the one remote which is helpful. Remember to notice that while it has freeview, it is not a clever tv – if you want netflix, iplayer and so on. (and you don’t have a virgin v6 or sky q box with that in-designed) you are going to need to get the edition that arrives with the hearth tv adhere or get a further unit like a chromecast which will consider up a single of your hdmi slots. Whilst the tv has a socket for a wired community relationship this is presumably for firmware updates only.

Cant see the issue of the internet relationship. Seem top quality is adjustable from poor to o. With minimal quantity higher restrict.

Perfectly for the income you are not able to beat it, excellent picture, the audio is alright ,,i use a b&o sound bar, i would use on any tv as all modern day tv’s have undesirable audio, buy it you are not able to go improper.

  1. 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.

    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.

    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.

    1. 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.
