Philips Cineos 32PFL9603D/10 32in LCD TV


It may only be a 32-incher, but Philips' 32PFL9603 LCD TV is a genuine benchmark setter.

A round-up of all the breaking news and hands-on previews of the latest tech from IFA 2011 in Berlin.

Philips 47PFL9603D review


It looks pretty and pictures are excellent, but this Philips has a glut of picture options and is a bit of a pain to set up and use

Gorgeous looking set with Ambilight on or off ; fantastic detail and edge definition ; one of the most balanced and natural colour performances around ; great spec ; decent sound

Pointless processing modes ; ill-conceived remote ; more noise than most

It looks pretty and pictures are excellent, but it’s a bit of a pain to set up and use

Philips 32PFL9603D review


This TV takes some tweaking to get it performing well, but once you do, it's capable of producing pictures to rival even the most stellar of TVs in it

Stylish design ; good build ; excellent performance – eventually

Remote control isn’t the best ; takes longer than other sets to get it performing well

This TV takes some tweaking to get it performing well, but once you do, it’s stunning

Philips 37PFL9603 review


This new Philips Ambilight LCD TV is packed with technology, but is that enough to justify its premium price in such a competitive market?

Good looks, extensive spec ; impressive sound by flatscreen standards ; deft, natural images

Occasionally flustered by fierce motion ; expensive

If you like a premium product (or you have money to burn), jump right in

No shrinking violet, this one. Does this Ambilight set light up our lives – or simply dazzle us with specs?

Philips Ambilight 37PFL9603D television


It's not all about Ambilight. The pretty colours that beam out the sides of this 37-incher to bathe your living room in light seem to entice and repel in equal measures. It's unique to Philips TVs, and there's a reason for that – it's expensive, and...

Ambilight, judder-free Blu-ray pictures, four HDMI inputs, bass-heavy sound

Poor remote, PC networking falters, expensive

The downside of Philips TVs in the past has been a slightly unnatural picture resulting from some over-processing. Here the effects are much more subtle, and much the better for it. Blur and judder do still exist, but the fabulously featured 37PFL9603D...

Philips 32PFL9613 review


A lovely 32" LCD with Ambilight and tons of connections

Gorgeous styling ; Great picture quality ; Impressive audio

Expensive ; Setup needs care ; Too labour-intensive

You need to work hard to get the best out of this TV, but it's worth the effort, for when it is at its best, it's an absolute belter

Philips 42PFL9603 review


A masterpiece in TV design with the pricetag to match

Awesome pictures ; Great design ; Endless features

Doesn't come cheap ; It takes work to optimise

Okay, so it's expensive, but the best things in life usually are and you'll quickly realise it's worth every single penny

The latest processing technology delivers a genuine watershed moment for LCD tech

Generous connections ; Ambilight enhances viewing experience ; Finely detailed and vibrant hi-def images ; Superb black levels

Settings need some tweaking to get the best effect

Philips' new video processing makes a big impact on this smallish HDTV
