Philips 32PFT5603/05 32-Inch Full HD LED TV : Nice but screen is too small

Just had sky q installed with this tv we can if we require watch and listen to which ever program we like.

Good picture and controls but the sound is very tinny.

Image is satisfying for movies and video games up to ps3. Sounds like a mobile phone speaker. If you have it as your main tv, you will need speakers.

I don’t usually bother writing reviews but am doing so after almost not buying this telly because of negative reviews. After doing lots of research on 32 inch tv’s i decided on the phillips as it ticked all my boxes; not a smart tv, full hd, 1080 pixels and white. It arrived really quickly, was incredibly easy to set up, looks fantastic and the picture quality is amazing. The remote activates my amazon fire stick so does away with a remote. Overall we are really pleased with it and glad i chose it.

Very pleased with the picture quality, after using the many available adjustments it is possible to get really natural looking colours, unfortunately the sound is very tinny and quiet however you adjust it, yes it is a flat screen tv so the speakers can’t be great due to the lack of depth but this tv is at least three times thicker than my little tablet which has far better sound, more volume and even some bass so there really is no excuse for this.

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.

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

I was worried reading the other reviews but just received this tv (28 aug 2018) and it must have new software as it’s unplugged daily (installed in our motorhome) and does not need to go through any setup when powered up again. Picture quality is great – and freeview works well. Sound is pretty poor compared to a big 50′ tv but acceptable in our motorhome and a sound bar could be used if you wanted deeper bass or higher volumes. For the price it’s a good deal.

  • Much better than expected with latest software
  • Decent image, horrible audio
  • Amazing picture, lovely telly.

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.

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.

Was ok,but the package was damaged.

This was bought for the bedroom and the picture and sound quality are great. It’s a nice size and very slim.

Looks great, you can’t see any stand so it fits perfectly on an appropriately sized bookshelf. I have it set up with one of the new fire tv 4k sticks (bought for the volume and power remote not 4k obviously). I haven’t had to use the philips remote apart from initial setup; there’s nothing wrong with the philips remote but the fire tv one is outstanding. The tv will even let you turn it on and off with alexa, my wife thinks this is great. Great tv for kitchen or bedroom. I would have liked an hdr /bt2020 version though.
