Philips 17PF8946A 17-inch HDTV Review

Posted on Saturday, April 02 2005 @ 19:27:43 CEST by LSDsmurf

Got the Phillips 17inch HDTV LCD after buying a Sony 42 inch rear projection HDTV. Got the Phillips for my office so I could take advantage of HD up there as well. Ordered 2 Comcast DVRs as well, the Motorola 6412 dual tuner. I am in heaven.

The biggest plus for the Phillips is its picture quality. It is great on the digital channels and awesome on the HD ones. The analog channels are just OK as is the case with any high quality high definition TV.

One cautionary is that the HD component hookup uses the same input as the VGA monitor. A funky kind of cable is included with a VGA like plug on one end and a 3 cable component collection on the other. So if you plan to use HD and VGA without a manual cable switch forget it. You can do a VGA and plain digital, but this is an HD ready TV. I did not buy the TV as an extra monitor so I don't care, but thought I'd throw this in for those that are.

In summary, this is the perfect TV for an office/small room. If you want HD in a small space...this is it.
