    TV Model: 42PFL6008
    Previous Firmware: 173.51

    Positive:
    + Little speed improvement in smart tv only
    + Little improvement on image quality


    Negative:
    - Pure motion engine is qual to 0
    - Movement is blurred
    - Still not a 2014 soft menu ( lag on changing channels, on volume up and down)

    Is like a nice car but with pedals....

    My advice is to work first on this lag and optimize it to move soft, is the only tv brand wich have problems with this LAG .
    And make that PURE MOTION ENGINGE to work like it supposed to be.

    Thank's....nice update....but very poor in improvemens.

    Positive:
    + slightly better image on fast mouvements
    +
    +

    Negative:
    - Menus are still slow
    - Audio drops still present in multichannel (shorter and less frequent than before, 250ms drops once every 3-5 minutes)
    - Natural Motion still needs improvements with fast movements. - When text is passing on the screen (during advertisements for example) it is blurry. The behavior is not the same depending on the background color displayed behind the text. On another of my TVs from another brand (famous for their plasma TVs) has a perfect text display during the same advertisements.

    Still the HDMI audio delay. Very disappointing with a 2000 euro TV.
    This is my 5th philips tv, probably my last if this is not fixed within reasonable time.
    I am not the only one with this issue, so why is development not working on this issue??????
    *** update 07-06-2014

    - it happens every day now that sound is off , cannot be turned on again, have to do a complete poweroff/poweron.
    - a few times the tv powered off all of a sudden


    having the tv now for approx. 4 month i am very disappointed and thinking of returning it to the tv shop.

    - still problem with PNM. Perfect Natural Motion stutters/artifacts.
    I do not understand why is so difficulty to remove it so in previous version of firmware 0.45 it were done already.
    - problem with right displaying subtitles during watching videos from pendrive. I tried all formats .txt, .srt and it is not working. Sometimes no subtitles visible at all, sometimes only partly and without polish signs.
    I bought second TV for bedroom 32pfk6509 and it is the same problem, when I want watch movie with subtitles in HD I have to always connect my laptop via cable. sucks.

    I wondering to give back TV for store where I bought and chose SAMSUNG model because they have no problem with this. But off course is difficult to me to resign from ambilight.

    Philips do it something because I think when your patent will finish in for ambi your TV business also finish.

    Waiting for replly.

    Best Regards from Poland

    - HDMI Audio Lag. Ina, can you please tell us what Philips are doing to solve the issue? As of now, I assume nothing. My TV will be sent in return to Philips if this issue is not fixed very soon.

    + more stable


    Negative:
    - still very small font of subtitles during watching movies from pendrive. Please make it bigger in next firmware version. I do not understood why is so difficulty. Samsung has possibility set size by user. Please make it only bigger without possibility of regulate. I bought second TV 32PFK6509 and on this TV it is ok. Philips I have a lot of your equipment like sonic toothbrushes 2 sets, sterilizer, breast pump, a lot of avent stuff because of my 9 month old daughter, blender and two TV's. Is there any chance to listen a trusted client like me?
