Philips 24PFT5303/05 24-Inch Full HD LED TV : Nice but screen is too small

I’m probably a little bit ‘old fashioned’ (or do we say ‘traditional’?) in that i have one main screen / tv, and i’ve always dragged my feet over another screen in the house (okay, other than the monitor for my computer). I’m also of an age where a 22″ screen seems more than adequate, for everything other than watching a film (my first tv was a 14″ colour portable, and that was frivolous?)anyway, i’m really been pleasantly surprised and quite impressed with this ‘little’ tv setup. I’m bought quite a few philips products over the years, as i rate them right up there on ease of use and quality. My expectations are that, they might not have all the latest ‘gadgets’ and ‘gizmos’ (e. Gimmicks?) but it’ll do everything that i need, and it’ll do it well. The tv certainly has disappointed. Un-packing is straightforward (yes, the initial impression will be of a considerably smaller, and lighter box, than the one that the ‘giant’ tv comes in – obviously) with everything that i needed to get started. I was a little dubious about the ‘laid-back’, ‘stand-less’ design, but now that it’s in situ’ i really like it. It keeps the lines clean and simple. First setup was as a ‘digital tv’ with its in-build ‘dvb’ tuner. I’ve got a digital compatible aerial at home, so plugged in and away it went to search and store all the channels. Certainly no longer than i might have expected to scan through, and a fairly simple process. Initial picture quality is actually quite good. I set it up on my desk and viewed it from a good 6′- 10′ away (est.

It is nice but the screen is too small. I also do not have bbc 1 and 2. The picture quality is great and the sound is great. After all we are talking about philips here. However, the screen is too small. It reminds me of the screen of a computer pc. However it makes no difference to me as i rarely watch tv. The tv only gets to see the light of day when i have guests. A bigger screen would have been nice though. It would be interesting to know if anybody else has had this problem.

Was ok,but the package was damaged.

Bought to replace old emotion 19 inch tv in kitchen. Although the picture quality is pretty good compared to my old tv and i can pick up the main hd channels with my amplified loft aerial, the sound quality has let this tv down. The sound reminds me of an old transistor radio, very tinny and gets worse the louder you have it. The bass control appears to have very little effect and other sound adjustments just make it quieter. I’ve had to add some old pc speakers to the headphone socket which improved the sound a lot, but to adjust the volume you have to go into the headphone menu and do it there (you can’t just use the remote only). This tv needs a sound bar at the very least with its own controls or run it through the other outputs. Note: tv speakers stay on when headphones plugged in (unless you go into the menu and deselect) and volume of headphone can’t be adjusted by remote only.

Bought for my sons xbox in his bedroom. Easy to set up and great picture.

Just what the car a a new needed.

  • Didn’t open till the end
  • Neat, slim and performs well. Just think carefully about what you need. This could be a winner as a second screen.
