    Thumbs up [REVIEW] Philips wins 3 x Gold and 1 x Silver in German test!!!

    Philips schlägt die Konkurrenz

    In allen drei Kategorien siegten Geräte von Philips. In der Kategorie "80 Zentimeter Bilddiagonale" stach der 32PFL9606K für 1000 Euro sogar die gut dreimal so teure Konkurrenz von Loewe aus. Der 32-Zoller von Philips überzeugte mit gutem Bild und Ton – was den übrigen Geräten von Metz, Sony, Samsung, Sharp und Grundig nicht gelang. Mit einem Stromverbrauch von 43 Watt im Betrieb war er gleichzeitig einer der umweltschonendsten. Schlusslicht der Gruppe wurde der 32LV4500 von LG: Zwar konnte sein Bild überzeugen, allerdings war der Ton, die Handhabung und die Ausstattung nur befriedigend.

    Auch bei den mittelgroßen Fernsehern bis 107 Zentimeter Bilddiagonale konnte sich Philips mit dem 42-Zoller PFL7606K durchsetzen. Zwar war der Fernseher mit 885 Euro der teuerste, allerdings erreichte er mit einer Endnote von 2,1 eine wesentlich bessere Bewertung als die Konkurrenz.

    Bei den größten Geräten reicht es sogar für Gold und Silber: Mit dem 47PFL7606K und dem 46PFL6606K belegt Philips die ersten beiden Plätze, gefolgt von Sony und Samsung. Die wichtigsten Kriterien waren die Bild- und Tonqualität sowie die Handhabung des Geräts. Doch auch die Vielseitigkeit der Geräte wurde genauer untersucht, unter anderem die Zusatzfunktion Smart TV.

    Translated with Google translate:
    Philips beats the competition
    In all three categories Philips equipment won. In the category of "80 inches diagonal", the 32PFL9606K for 1000€, beated even the well three times as expensive competition from Loewe. The 32-incher from Philips convinced with good picture and sound - which was not the case for the others from Metz, Sony, Samsung, Sharp and Grundig. With a power consumption of 43 watts in operation, it was also one of the most environmentally friendly. Last in the group was the 32LV4500 from LG: although able to convince with his image, the sound, the ease of use, and the gear was not satisfactory.

    Even in the mid-size TVs, up to 107 cm's in diagonal, Philips prevailed with the 42-inch PFL7606K. Although the TV was with €885 the most expensive, it reached a final mark of 2.1; a much better rating than the competition.

    For the largest devices, there is even gold and silver for Philips: the 47PFL7606K and Philips 46PFL6606K occupied the top two spots, followed by Sony and Samsung. The main criteria were the picture and sound quality and the ease of use of the device.
    But also the versatility of the devices was examined in detail, including the additional Smart TV function.....

    This is well known here in Italy (I've purchased my PFL8605 verifying the italian consumer's association test results for 37 inches models).

    What is really weak and disappointing is the NET TV branch and interaction with it.

    Good A/V quality - Bad Firmware and Net-TV features

    While the video quality is amazing, as displayed on those reports, I agree in the huge gap with firmware stability out of the box and the poor net-tv services offered.
