This product has a great picture quality
I bought this TV on the back of reasonably good reviews even though it was always coming second to the Panasonics in the same field.
Mainly I was interested in a high quality picture with as much detail as I could get for the money and with reasonable sound quality. I have no need for a loud sound scape just a nice well balanced sound spectrum that has dynamism and clear speech and none of the all too apparent booming of the lower frequencies that are all to often noticeable in other TVs.
I am impressed with the high contrast values and the reality is that with the proper combination of the TVs advanced features available to enhance the picture quality, the picture has a real feeling of depth about it.
This combined with the balanced sound makes for an enjoyable experience for me, especially when watching movies or documentaries where what you want are real colours without being over the top. None of the over-saturated stuff that you will often see on a gamers TV set-up.
There are only really a couple of small niggles with this Philips product;
1) The dynamic contrast is what makes the picture quality stand out but, even on the minimum setting it can be too obvious when it is altering the picture.
2) I wish there was a patch available for the different volume levels between inputs because the feature available in the audio menu does not work. The only way to equalize inputs that I have found to work is to first get your desired input through to the screen (that is, start watching it) then use the input menu to go to another input and once into that input come back to the one you want to watch. This, for some strange reason sorts out the loss of volume first experienced when watching say, a DVD.
Other than that the Tv is a joy to watch for only an HD-Ready unit. I can't wait for it to fail now so that I can compare the new Full-HD ones.
I have no chance of buying a new TV till this one kicks the bucket. It still works well and till that day I will continue to enjoy using it - if only there was that patch for the sound niggle.

excellent tv, great picture
i spent a lot of time comparing tvs in the shops (not in the internet!) and this model by far had the best picture. SD looks as good as HD and HD looks fantastic!
the sound quality is superb too, great for audiophiles.
