I bought this player for my two year old's room. I had it where he could not reach it and it was never left on long enough to get hot either. It froze a few times after I bought it, but I thought that is just what blu-ray players do. My parents have a rather more expensive one and there's did the same thing now and again. Then I noticed that the tray started opening and closing like the gears were sticking. Then all together the thing stopped working. The remote did not allow me to move from one application to another and I have wasted my money. Do not buy this piece of garbage blu-ray/dvd player!
My fiance and I received this television as an early wedding gift. The picture is great. The sound quality is better than I expected for a flat screen. My fiance and I are both avid gamers and love the video quality when using our PS3. We have not experienced any ghosting such as a previous reviewer has. I love the smart option with the Wi-fi as well. We are very satisfied!
The TV was easy to set up and the Internet channels work great. I also purchased the RCA amplified TV antenna for the local stations and that works great, too.
The picture quality is absolutely stunning. The audio is nothing to brag about, but then all HDTVs are bad. I am waiting for a digital to analog converter to arrive so I can run the sound through my old stereo system.
The only thing that didn't work at first was the Wireless Media Connect feature. It simply would not work no matter what I tried or that Philips suggested.
On the third call to Philips about it, the gal I talked to suggested I update the video/graphics card, which was easy to do after I found it under Device Manager, on my computer. After updating it, I rebooted the computer, turned on my TV and it instantly worked when I clicked on Start Projecting!
[...]Thank you Target! And, thank you Philips!
I bought this tv to use as a monitor, its pretty awesome. The sound is more then acceptable if you dont turn it up too loud, which isnt an issue for me because i hooked it up to a surround sound system. It comes with net tv, i dont use it but its a nice feature i guess, wifi works nicely, but as a monitor for my computer it really does not make any sense for me to use it. it is easy to switch from computer to tv to x box or whatever and the picture quality is great. Ive never bought a tv brand new before this and I dont regret it one bit. Buy this tv
