Pros Picture quality is superb in my opinion. Didn't need much calibration. Sound is also very good with just the two speakers in the front.
Cons Started having issues with this Plasma about 6 months after purchasing. First sound would just stop working, now the TV won't turn on at all. Found out Philips installs very cheap components on the main board which go bad over time.
Summary It's a shame that this TV broke so soon after I purchased it. The picture quality is way better than the Panasonic I just bought. I researched online and found out that Philips LCD and Plasmas have a history of the capacitors going bad on the main power supply board. Apparantly Philips knows of this problem, but refuses to do anything about it. Now I will have to junk this TV. If you do decide to buy this plasma, make sure you purchase the extended warranty.
Pros It worked until out of warranty. It will be great for target practice
Cons Anything goes wrong, you are screwed. Useless phone support. Mafia protection racket support policies. Service information unavailable.
Summary Clueless Philips support says to plug in memory stick and use on screen menu to fix TV even though there Is no picture at all - the set is dead. Philips will not provide service info on this TV. You are stuck with a few Philips approved dealers who say repair bill for power supply problem (most likely problem) will be $300 to $500.
Pros nice bright and sharp image,
Cons after 18 mos no pic no sound all of a sudden. the dashboard panel on the right lower led gives a flashing red light which now i am trying to research about what this signal indicates.
Summary read my comments.
Pros Great Colors, easy to use, good looking exterior, clear picture and great pricing
Cons Runs Hot, Great Value so it is hard to believe your will recieve a good quality plasma televission for this price
Summary I purchased this Plasma television yesterday after purchasing a Vizio 720p from Walmart. After setting-up the Vizio and watching it, i realized that the Vizio was horrible and poor clarity, color and sound. I went to B.J's and purchased the Philips plasma and to my surprise the pricing was fantastic, the value and quality of the TV is great. The Philips Plasma is about 30 pounds heavier than the Vizio. Maybe that is due to better quality and construction at Philips. The color, picture and functionality is great. My best Television is my 40" picture tube Sony 40" XBR 1080i HDTV television. This is still the best picture our there and the Philips plasma is just about there and looking great. For the price, value, quality and very good performance this is the TV plasma to buy. Also, it is a good looking set.
