"NO FlashPlayer included"0.5 starson by husarich
Pros: Philips offers a quality picture. Back lighting is nice.
Smart TV means you can go to normal video sites, but you cannot stream shows. Able to surf the internet, but slowly.
You can hook up to your computer and use it as a monitor.
Cons: Majority of video available on the internet today is viewed in FlashPlayer which Philips doesn't have.
Cannot add FlashPlayer. Cannot go video sites & stream shows in flash. No PBS NewsHour.
Too little RAM means the pages load very slowly
Summary: Although the majority of videos, movies, series and shows available on the internet today are viewed in FlashPlayer,
Philips Smart TV has no FlashPlayer and doesn't allow your to add it.
Therefore I give All Philips Smart TV models one star.
You are paying a large amount of money for the computer part of this television set. It has limited functions designed to be that way by Philips.
Philips needs to rethink what they are doing. It is too early to buy this TV. They have many improvements to make on future models.
Very slow response. More like a 1998 computer speed.
Recommend buying a large monitor for your computer and upgrading your PC with TV capabilities. You will be better served.
Surprised that the CNET editors didn't catch this, because I read their reviews before we bought ours. Do not make our mistake.
Hope this helps you!
