Amazon.com Product Description

Philips' widescreen, 15:9 aspect-ratio 17PF8946A TFT LCD television is stylish enough and small enough to be used in any room of the house. The 17-inch TV offers high brightness (450 cd/m2) and high contrast (400:1), and an integrated TV tuner for cable or broadcast reception of all your favorite programs. This is an EDTV display, which means it's a step closer to high-definition or HDTV than standard TVs. When used with a progressive-scan DVD player (or 480p-output DTV set-top box) you'll get seamless, razor-sharp images from your favorite movies and concert videos.

LCD technology allows screens to be thinner and televisions to be lighter and more energy-efficient than ever before. The result is television that not only fits on a wall, but fits in places conventional televisions cannot. The 17PF8946A's comes outfitted with Digital Crystal Clear III technology, a suite of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast, green/blue stretch, and a 3-line digital comb filter. The comb filter removes blurred edges between colors and reduces dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

A feature called Active Control continually adjusts picture settings at over 60 times per second for all inputs, correcting both sharpness and noise reduction. Auto Picture lets you change--at the touch of a button--the picture settings (color, tint, contrast, etc.) for various types of programming, including sports, movies, multimedia (games), or weak signals.

Auto Sound allows you to select from 3 factory-set controls and a personal control that you set according to your preferences. Use the factory-set controls (voice, music, and theatre) to enhance appropriate programs. Virtual Dolby surround simulates enveloping surround sound from any 2 speakers.

Inputs include 1 component-video, 2 S-video, and 3 composite-video connections, as well as a VGA computer input, which accepts signals up to WXGA (1,280 x 768, from 60 to 75 Hz). Side-panel AV inputs accommodate a camcorder, gaming device, or VCR hookup, and a headphone output (minijack .125-inch) lets you listen in private.

Amazon.com Product Description

The Philips MAT976A1 WebTV Plus/MSN TV Internet receiver works in tandem with Microsoft's MSN TV service to simplify the process of using the Internet. There's no computer required--all you need is the MAT976A1, an existing television, and a standard phone line. Enjoy the seamless integration of TV and Internet viewing through this simple, low-cost package.

Easy-to-follow instructions come in the box. Once you've connected the receiver to a television and phone line, simply turn it on and follow the onscreen instructions that guide you through the simple process of selecting and purchasing an MSN TV subscription. Plans range from $9.95 to $24.95 per month, depending upon your needs and interests.

MSN TV (formerly WebTV) is a subscription-based online service that packages specially screened and selected content. All Web content is adjusted for viewing on a television, and the graphics are enhanced for better viewing. Using the included universal remote or an optional wireless keyboard, you can send and receive e-mail, surf the Web, and enjoy many benefits of being online--right from the comfort and convenience of your couch.

The MAT976A1's TVLens technology presents Web pages with stunning clarity: content is always readable, and the TVLens eliminates interlace flickering and enhances your perceived image quality. The unit comes with Philips Magnavox's WebEye remote infrared receiver, a device that lets you place the MAT976A1 out of view in a more convenient place. A small cable connects the WebEye to the main unit.

You can simultaneously watch television and maintain a connection to the Internet, even if your TV doesn't have picture-in-picture capability. You can view text and video information about TV programs up to seven days in advance. This data is automatically updated from the Internet and remains available even when you're offline. While online, a feature called TV Crossover Links grants instantaneous access to the Internet using Microsoft-embedded links in TV programs or commercials--a great way to learn more about the programs you're watching.

Though it won't be as fast as broadband service, you'll enjoy a quick Internet connection and timely downloading of Web pages thanks to the MAT976A1's 167 MHz processor and built-in 56K modem. The MAT976A1 also offers advanced graphics and video performance through Videoflash, providing full-screen, full-motion video and customized graphics acceleration.

The MAT976A1 supports up to six e-mail users per household. Each account can be password-protected and has a unique Internet e-mail address, favorites list, and customized settings. MessageWatch periodically dials in to see if there is new e-mail--regardless of whether the Internet is activated--and a red "message" LED on the unit's front panel notifies you when new e-mail is present. Parental control software is available for children's accounts, helping to prevent access to inappropriate content, chat rooms, and e-mail from strangers.

While MSN TV does provide access to the Internet and e-mail, it is not designed to offer spreadsheet, word-processing, or other capabilities often associated with personal computers. MSN TV service does, however, support Secure Socket Layer (SSL), the Internet encryption standard. This allows MSN TV to offer encryption-protected online banking and shopping to subscribers, making online transactions simple and convenient.

MSN TV services are available as a local call in most areas. In some cases, long-distance telephone toll charges may apply. To determine if local access is available for you, just type your number into the fields on this page and hit "search": www.webtv.com/accesslocator/accesslocator.aspx. Detailed MSN TV pricing information is available here: www.webtv.com/buy_plans.aspx. For toll-free MSN TV customer support, call (800) 469-3288.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Loved My Web TV Plus!
I had The Philips Magnavox Web TV Plus Internet receiver, I got it as a Christmas gift in 1999 or 2000 and I loved it. Before that I had an old computer that was on it's last legs so when a friend who has Web TV told me about it and that it was cheaper then buying a new computer I made plans on buying one for myself so I was very happy when I got one as a Christmas gift. I loved so many things about The Web TV Plus, one thing was putting the html sigs in my email but I think what I really loved the most was being able to watch TV while I was online and I even had it set up where I could watch a DVD or video while I was reading or composing email or reading or writing reviews on Amazon, etc, and even though I'm not a person who watches TV all day long I really loved getting my weeks worth of TV Listings and setting reminders of movies and TV shows I wanted to see so I could set my VCR timer and tape them or watch them while online but Unfortunately my Web TV Plus broke and for some reason Philips and also Sony are not making them anymore so I had to downgrade to a classic Unit. We now have two computers in the house and I use them but I still much prefer using Web TV which I find to be much more convenient and enjoyable and even though I had to downgrade to the MSN TV Classic Internet TV receiver and I preferred the Plus receiver I still prefer it over a computer. Buying a used or refurbished Plus receiver just wasn't an option for me but if some company ever starts making a new Plus receiver I will buy it and either give the classic receiver away to a reletive or I will sell it. Now even though the Plus receivers aren't being made right now you can still get the Plus service so if you have a Plus receiver take great care of it and hold on to it. I'm really hoping that they either make the Plus receiver again or what would be even greater would be one basic unit where you can choose to have either the classic or plus service. Also now if you also have a computer you can have your MSN service on both Your MSN TV and computer and you can check your email, etc, on both which I might consider doing someday. FYI: Web TV and MSN TV are the same but the service is just called MSN TV now.

5-0 out of 5 stars You gotta get one!!
There are various reasons why I love my webtv. First of all...so much easier than a computer and does basically all the same things. You can email, send and receive photos and voice mail recordings, print,surf the net, build web pages. You also do not EVER have to worry about viruses or upgrading. Webtv upgrades automatically when they have something new. Our latest is instant messaging which is great!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Send photos and voice recordings to your famil and friends
I have both the phillips and the sony models. My girlfriend and I send photos and recordings all over the world. We like the sony a little more because it is faster. But we reccommend both. You are going to spend a little more for the sony because of the larger memory and speed. I tried to email and download photos on a computer and it takes 4 times as long just to figure out how to do it. With webtv I'm allready done.

Philips' compact 20PF8946 TFT LCD television brings you 20 diagonal inches of high-quality image and silver Euro style. Perfect for use just about anywhere--living rooms, dens, offices, bedrooms, kitchens, dorms, you name it--the TV offers a standard 4:3 aspect ratio (suited to full-screen viewing of most television broadcasts), high brightness (450 cd/m2), and high contrast (500:1), as well as an integrated TV tuner for off-air reception of all your favorite programs.

This is an EDTV display, which means it's a step closer to high-definition or HDTV than standard TVs. When used with a progressive-scan DVD player (or 480p-output DTV set-top box) you'll get seamless, razor-sharp images from your favorite movies and concert videos.

The result is television that not only fits on a wall, but fits in places conventional televisions cannot. The 20PF8946's comes outfitted with Digital Crystal Clear III technology, a suite of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast, green/blue stretch, and a 3D digital comb filter. The comb filter removes blurred edges between colors and reduces dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

Asin: B0002U200Q
Catlog: CE
Sales Rank: 27505
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Amazon.com Product Description

Standing only as tall as a 34-inch standard (4:3) television, Philips' 42PF9956 delivers a full 42 inches of widescreen beauty from standard- and high-definition sources alike, closely matching the orientation of your favorite movies. Hook it up with a progressive-scan DVD player or an HDTV set-top box/receiver and you'll be set to enjoy vivid, detailed images on the set's native 1,024 x 1,024-pixel screen. It's even configured for PC use, accepting inputs as high as 1,920 x 1,152i (at 50 Hz).

With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile, which also makes it perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems. The 42PF9956 offers an extraordinary 1,000:1 contrast ratio for rich, deep blacks.

The 42PF9956 includes Digital CrystalClear technology, a suite of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast, a comb filter, and advanced, 10-bit processing. A feature called Active Control Plus continually adjusts picture settings at over 60 times per second for all inputs, correcting both sharpness and noise reduction, even adjusting for changes in ambient viewing light.

Philips invented Digital Natural Motion to eliminate "juddering" effects visible in moving pictures. Digital Natural Motion estimates picture motion and corrects unintended movements in both broadcast and movie material (DVD), resulting in smooth motion reproduction and excellent sharpness.

Audio/video inputs include the latest direct-digital HDMI input (with a supplied HDMI-to-DVI adapter in case you're already outfitted for the other digital video connection) and a pair of high-definition component-video inputs, one of which includes H/V sync jacks for use with a PC. Composite- and S-video and RF coaxial inputs round out the connection types, though there's also a .125-inch stereo headphone jack for use with optional headphones.

A set of side-mounted AV inputs accommodates spontaneous hookups with camcorders or gaming consoles, and you can use the set as a center speaker in a surround array (1 center-channel input) while feeding a powered subwoofer with a dedicated subwoofer output.

Onboard Dolby Virtual Surround simulates enveloping surround sound from any 2 speakers, and the set's own pair is powered by a generous 15 watts per channel (x 2). The speakers use Philips' wOOx technology for stronger and higher-quality bass output than conventional TV speakers.

Amazon.com Product Description

The Philips 42-inch 42FD9954 TV offers advanced plasma display technology and enhanced audio with a built-in 7-band equalizer--all in a package that's less than 4 inches deep. It has a wide selection of connectivity options, including DVI and VGA (PC) inputs, for all your home theater needs. The HD-ready 42FD9954 also features an anti-reflective screen, a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, 1,024 x 1024 pixel resolution, 160-degree viewing angles, and a wall mount.

The 42FD9954 features Philips' plasma ALiS (Alternative Lighting of Surfaces) technology, which increases vertical resolution without sacrificing brightness for better picture performance from any source, producing a full 1080i resolution. The high light output of this set--1,000 cd/m2 (candelas per square meter)--delivers exceptional detail even in well-lit rooms. It also has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio for increased picture depth, which results in greater dimensionality and a less washed-out picture. Other features include a 5-level autopicture function (soft, natural, rich, personal, and multimedia), picture-in-picture mode (PIP), tri-mode tint control, and a fanless design for less distraction during quiet film moments.

This set has a built-in 181-channel tuner, though you will need an HDTV tuner to receive high-definition broadcasts. The 30-watt RMS stereo speakers (15-watts per channel) offer lifelike sound. The 42FD9954 has a DVI-d input, VGA input, 1 HD component input, 1 SD component input, SVHS input, 2 composite A/V inputs, 1 stereo A/V output, a subwoofer output, and headphone jack.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great HDTV Viewing!
This TV is great overall. I am extremely happy with the picture quality when using it under HD. Its absolutely unbeliveable!! The drawback is Time Warner only has about 13 HD channels, everything else is in SD. Under a SD signal the TV is an average performer (which is why I gave it 4 stars & not 5). The picture does get grainy and my $300 TV looks much better than this set! But it is still "bearable".

I did go down to a local electronics store and do a comparision of this set against the leading brands (under HD signal), and i must say it was just as good or even better than some of those 5K+ TV's out there.

Its works great when hooked up to my pc, I did have to go out and get a decent video card with a DVI out. The picture quality is simply great.

Bottom Line: Buy it! But just be prepared to be patient until more 'n more programs get broadcast in HD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great experience from start to finish.
This is the nicest and thinest TV I have ever seen, and now owned. The colors are awsome, and everything is very familiar if you have owned a TV in the past, except for how thin this unit is. We bought this to give ourselves more room, and didn't actually realize how much room until the old 32" Tube TV was gone. We got to get rid of the TV stand, and the huge TV and now have a nice small unit that we can hang on the wall. Philips makes awsome product, and we have had a grat experience from Amzon throughout the entire process. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Good TV, but universal remote does not work
The universal remote does not work properly on this TV set.

The universal remote on this TV has a problem that Philips acknowledges but refuses to fix or compensate for. Like all TV universal remotes, you can program it to run your VCR. This one has a handy slider on the side of the remote control, to change it from TV, to VCR, to ACC (cable or satellite box). But, in VCR mode, the numbers buttons don't work on the VCR. They change the TV instead. The manual even states that the numbers should work on the VCR.

I called Philips and after a number of calls explaining my problem, Philips finally admitted this was a problem. The remote does not work like it should as listed in the manual. They said that they were not going to do anything about it.

If you don't care about using your TV remote to control your VCR (so you have one less remote laying around) then this is a very nice TV.

I compared it side by side to Sony's top of the line 24 inch TV. I liked the picture on the Philips better. The Sony had problems with deep reds bleeding. The Philips TV also had better sound and a much deeper, booming base, then Sony's top of the line sound system. The Sony did seem to have a little better stereo separation and surround sound, but the dynamic range wasn't as good as the Philips.

Now, maybe if you played with the video settings and listened to to the sound in a house, instead of a store, the Sony might perform better. I did play with the audio settings on the Sony TV, but no matter how hard I tried, the bass sounded washed out.

I almost returned this TV because of the remote control. But, it was much cheaper than the Sony, and I thought I could live fumbling with two remotes for the...savings. Anyway, I will probably only keep this TV for a couple of years and will replace it when high definition TV's become reasonably priced.

One thing to note is that the 24 inch TV's are the largest TV's that are still managable. I am able to lift the TV by myself. It still fits on a standard bedroom dresser. Once you get to 27 inch, it takes a lot of effort to pick up the set. And it is too large except for an entertainment center or TV stand.

But, the 24 inch sets come with a lot less features than a 27 inch set. None of them have picture in picture or variable outputs.

This TV does come with component video inputs which are nice if you have a DVD player. Also, the A/V input is no the right side of the TV, instead of the front like most TV's. I like this, because if you want to hook up a camcorder or game system to the TV, the plugs are easy to get to and you don't have wires sticking out of the front of the TV. This is good as long as you put the component on the right side of the TV. If it is on the left side, then you have to run the wires across the front of the TV or hook them up in back.

I did have one other problem with this set, but it might be caused by my Chinese DVD player. I plug the audio out into a stereo. When I plug the DVD player into the TV, I get a hum on the stereo. It is very light and can only be heard when the stereo is cranked way up. But, I think it is probably a ground problem with the DVD player. The VCR does not cause similar problems.

One other note about the remote: it does not have a button for the A/V inputs where you hook up the VCR and DVD. So, you have to change the TV to channel 2, and then use the channel changer buttons to back through to A/V inputs. But the remote does have 4 colored buttons that you can set to your favorite channels. You could use these for the A/V selections.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great picture & sound for the money
We are very pleased with our set so far. The sound is great and the picture is clear. The flat screen does cut down on glare.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great TV, Great Price
This TV is a great deal for a good picture. It stands below most Flat TVs in price for this size, but still delivers good picture. It is definitly worth it to buy a flat TV such as this, because they not only look better now, but will last longer as they are made with higher quality parts. The small investment over a normal TV is easily offset over years. The picture of this TV is similar to any flatscreen WEGA you'd see, but for 100-200 less. I read that Philips actually makes the tubes on a lot of competing flatscreens so that may be why. It doesn't have all the WizBang features, like PIP and such, but for personally I don't even care about those. So in general it's a good TV for the price, with a great picture. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Need an affordable set? Don't rule out big-screen TVs. Magnavox's MS3250C offers a 32-inch screen and features galore, including a dark-glass picture tube, DNR (Digital Noise Reduction), a comb filter, and contrast-enhancing BlackStretch circuitry, all of which works together to make the set's image as clear and vivid as possible.

You can hook up your auxiliary audio/video components via rear-panel AV inputs, which consist of 2 composite-video jacks, an S-video jack, and a coaxial RF input for an antenna or an older VCR or cable box. A set of AV outputs (composite-video, stereo analog RCA audio) is just the thing for feeding inputs on your digital video recorder or VCR.

The set offers a pair of 5-inch, oval speakers capable of delivering clear, full-bodied sound. Incredible Surround creates spacious surround ambience through just 2 speakers, while SmartSound minimizes drastic swings in volume that occur during program changes or commercials, providing a steady sound level.

SmartLock lets you block certain channels to keep children from viewing inappropriate material, while SmartMute engages the closed-captioning feature whenever you press the mute button to silence the MS3250C's speakers. With SmartPicture you can set color, tint, contrast, and brightness for various types of programming with the push of a button.

The bilingual onscreen display (English, Spanish) lets you set the clock, a sleep timer, and a daily alarm so you can wake to the news or another favorite program. Other features include auto channel programming, closed-captioning, and a 181-channel cable-ready tuner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Picture and Sound is GREAT!!
I just bought my first 32" TV after researchering for 3 weeks... I was right in selecting the Maganavox MS3250C 32" TV. Excellent picture and sound leveler to avoid loud commercials which some models of Panasonic, Sony and JVC did not have.
Easy set-up for auto programming and picture plus the remote control was universal which the others were not for working with your DVD, VHS and Stereo. After having it for the required warrenty period, I have found this TV was the Best Price without bells and whistles to be the Best Buy by far for great picture and sound.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
We were in the market for a 32" TV and were going to buy another brand. After looking at the features that we would really use, we felt that this TV had the basics. We were not looking for a lot of bells you use very little. We wanted a TV with a great picture and sound. We were very pleased with this TV. It has excellent picture and sound. We could not have been more pleased with the quality and price of this product. Consumer reports also rated this product highly. You can pay a lot more $$ for other features like PIP; however, if you are looking for the same basic features like us, this is your TV.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great TV for not too many bucks!
We just bought this TV at our grocery store (of all places) today for our family room, and WOW! What an improvement! It replaced our Mistubishi 27" TV (moved it up to the master bedroom) which was state of the art when we bought it 6 years ago. I wasn't sure that a TV in this price range would meet our needs, and boy... was I pleasantly surprised!

The picture is extremely clear and sharp (the first thing we watched was a brand new "Shrek" video), but what really blew us away was the sound. We barely had it turned up to 1/3 of the volume abilities and it was booming away as if we were in a movie theater, with no distortion. You can select different sound and viewing modes (music, voice, theater, etc.).

It doesn't have a million bells and whistles, but if you're looking for an inexpensive large TV that will serve you well, then this is it! I'm not an electronics connoiseur, but I think this is going to be great for us in the long run. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Phillips Receiver & WebTV Service Reviewed
Phillips sells what they refer to as a receiver. You buy either their box or Sony's, hook it up to your VCR, dish, and TV and then subscribe to the WebTV service. Its a bit like buying the cable box and then paying for cable. The receiver is quiet and easy to setup. I have had problems with it using my Sony VCR and no longer use it to record. In particular, twice during the first couple of weeks that I owned it, I programmed the box to record programs a week in advance. During both times, it recorded some programs and then it seemed that the box reset and all the additional programming was lost. Further, it did not change the VCR channel. I verified that I had set it up correctly several times. I am an engineer and have no problems with these matters. I reported this problem to the WebTV service and a week later, they informed me that I should contact Phillips. I have not done so.Regarding the software, if you want to listen to real audio or run java programs you will have problems. They currently do not support the latest real audio version so most internet radio stations are not available. In addition, the box automatically discounts after 10 minutes if there is no keyboard or remote input. This cannot be disabled. Thus, tunning your box to an internet radio station and then working in the house is essentially impossible. With those limitations aside, I say this is a great product. It allows you to surf the web, buy products, etc while watching TV. A nice feature when watching TV is that as your surf TV channels, you see the name of each program currently playing. Most programs have a synopsis quickly available to find out about the shows. WebTV says that they have concentrated most of their efforts on the TV integration and it shows. Very nice product in spite of the negatives mentioned above.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for all ages.
I have a webtv Plus Mat 976 reciever. I've actually learned all the stuff you need to know abt. computers from this easy version of a pc. You learn about copy & pasting word's , making your own "free web page's,decorating your e-mail including capturing a tv show you are currently watching in your "pip" and freezing the frame of the show in your e-mail. there are alot of "plus's" to webtvPlus which has allot more function's than the msn Tv version. I also recommend this type of internet device for the elderly or very young..because it is sooo simple.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Gift from the Gods!
I love this machine - my WebTV Plus is wonderful, works perfectly, no problems with anything. I had the Sony Classic before this and it is still going full blast in my Sis's home. You never get a virus, you move around anywhere you want to go and it has saved my legs in shopping on line. I am furious that they are discontinuing it and what is with the price gouging on the used ones? They ARE more expensive than mine was new. If you can find one - buy it fast for a backup.

5-0 out of 5 stars Signed, Sealed, and Delivered!
My Webtv Plus was a gift to me. I was not very thrilled, and said, "oh, what do I need it for," especially hearing of the monthly provider charge. Well, to make a long story short; Due to an electrical storm, my webtv got affected. I was devastated. I had to replace it immediately or I would go into cardiac arrest, or maybe even something worse. When I was informed that the Webtv is going to be slowly phased out, I could not believe it.Something so fantastic, the best invention since the wheel, to be taken off the market. How dare they!! I not only have the webtv, I also have a computer. I enjoy the web much, much more because it is hooked up to myTV and also my Vcr. Why would they want to discontinue something so fabulous as this. if they want to discontinue something, then let it be the clock! ... Read more

Enjoy compact quality and style with the Philips 20PS40S with high-contrast, black-matrix picture tube. The set's three-line comb filter removes blurred edges between colors and reduces dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped t-shirt). Video noise reduction, meanwhile, minimizes any residual picture grain.

A hallmark of the set, its QuadraSurf remote control lets you personalize and customize your channel surfing and TV viewing by family member or program theme. QuadraSurf delivers your favorite television shows at the press of a button.

A component-video input grants optimum connection with a compatible DVD player, while standard composite- and S-video inputs accommodate all DVD players. You can choose between a set of rear AV inputs and a set of front AV inputs for extra convenience.

Other 20PS40S features include a 240-minute sleep timer, AutoPicture (which optimizes brightness, contrast, color, tint, and sharpness), AutoLock (which uses V-Chip technology for parental control), and AutoSound (which lets you select settings for voice, music, movies, or custom). Incredible Surround simulates surround sound from the set's two speakers, while bass and treble controls let you adjust the sound to your taste.

3-0 out of 5 stars Simple television for a small bedroom
If your looking for a tv thats not to big, but not to small to go into your bedroom. This is the TV that you want! Even with DVD's out, lets face it, VHS is still very important for watching homevideos, and old movies, and recorded things ect. So VHS is still not obsolite, that makes the internal VCR very convinient for this TV. The color quality is great. Some drawbacks are the mono sound system and the lack of outputs.

Amazon Product Description

Make your living room or office the center of your universe with Philips' 42-inch, perfectly flat 42PF9936 plasma television. The set's widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio) dimension closely matches those of your favorite movies. Hook the 42PF9936 up to a progressive-scan DVD player and you'll enjoy vivid, detailed images on the set's native 852 x 480-pixel screen. You can connect it with your PC, too, using the set's RGB input and supplied connection cable. An integrated TV tuner offers cable or broadcast reception of all your favorite programs.


Philips' Dynamic Contrast technology optimizes the contrast of the picture by stretching the white, gray, and black levels.

With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile, which also makes it perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.


The 42PF9936 includes Digital Crystal Clear technology, a suite of picture innovations including Dynamic Contrast, a comb filter, and advanced, 10-bit processing. A feature called Active Control Plus continually adjusts picture settings at over 60 times per second for all inputs, correcting both sharpness and noise reduction, even adjusting for changes in ambient viewing light.

Audio/video inputs include a direct-digital DVI input and a VGA computer input. Onboard Dolby Virtual Surround simulates enveloping surround sound from any 2 speakers.

5-0 out of 5 stars $100 alternative to a $1000 computer
I have used WebTV for two years, several hours daily, and I remain impressed with its sensible design and ease of use. I prefer it to other computer-based internet services that I have. It has most everything most people want in an internet connection: email, newsgroups and web browsing -- and no hastle with computer software and its constant upgrading (you receive periodic free upgrades automatically over the internet). You do have the added monthly expense of a subscription to the WebTV network that serves as your ISP. You need a standard telephone line connection, it can be an extension on your family line -- you probably won't need a new telephone line. Before you buy verify that WebTV offers a local telephone number for your dial-in use so your connection to WebTV won't be a toll call. Note that WebTV uses your telephone to connect to the internet, not through any TV cable service you may have.You will also need a TV with minimally audio and video input sockets. If you are planning to use it for serious email, you will also need a keyboard, either a wireless unit they sell or you can plug a standard computer keyboard into it. With use you may also want to buy a printer adapter and inkjet printer, limited primarily to specific HP printer models.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cheap alternative but Becoming obsolete
I don't own this model but an older version. In general webtv is not the greatest alternative to a computer. Sure 150 is ok but really if u bought 2 models of these u have a computer right there. Right now the network is getting sloppy on junk mail filtering.I even had someone hack into my address to send out junk mail. With this in mind I would spend money on a computer and buy software to avoid this and other problems, because in the long run a computer has more flexibility. Webtv will become obsolete in maybe the next 5 years because of so much incompatibilty with most of the stuff on the web works with. My current model cuts off on me a lot. Especially on incompatible websites and listening to realplayer. With the monthly amount u pay, u might as well get netzero. Unfortunately, u must have a computer. Sure 150 may be cheap and if u can barely afford it, I would just say work harder and save ur money for just a low cost celeron computer. I mean u can upgrade a computer better than upgrading webtv. Webtv upgrading is done by the network and isn't doing much. Even msn messenger is crappy, u can talk 2 only 1 person at a time or put all ur people in one conversation. Yahoo instant messaging isn't compatible and Aim isn't either but there is a website irc that allows u to do a little with it. Currently I am writing this review on my webtv, but I am getting a computer next month. I have had this for about 5 years now and I could say it was worth it then. Now computers are cheaper than ever and internet providers 2. The webtv company isn't keeping up with the changing technology and will need to go a whole lot faster if they are gonna stay afloat.By the way this is a 14 year old perspective. So if ur just technology inclined and have an ok amount of money u should start off with this, but eventually ur gonna need to get a computer.

4-0 out of 5 stars good if you buy cheap
I like the webtv calssic. I just wish i had bought it cheaper. It is for those of us who cannot afford a compter. If you buy it cheap you can say it was worth more. : > p.s. I am useing it to write this review

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Start to theinternet...
I've had this product for 3yrs.and for some one who'snot wanting anotebook,or full computer with cputower, this is just the thing to down load the internet. It's simple, easy, and great on the eyes,for those with visual problems, you can have the text set for your particular needs.

3-0 out of 5 stars It gets you online,but it's a lesson in frustration.
I've owned a web tv for a few years now,and it's nice to be able to go online,but after a while, you realize how limited this device really is,and how bad you want a PC. I owned an older model of Webtv classic,sold it,and ended up buying the model you see here for sale. You can send email, browse a lot of the web,chat,instant message people that have MSN,and build your own web page.What I dislike about the experience, is that webtv,or MSNtv as it's called now,is frequently incompatible with many web sites. No java compatibility, for example,which is popular with many websites,and allows you to view what they have on the website or allow you to chat on that particular website. People may wish to send you pictures or other files, and you discover that webtv has told you that "this is a type of information webtv cannot use" or a similar message. It's a rather frustrating experience, that happens way too often.Webtv has Real player and Windows media player. Real player allows you to hear music/voice/sound downloads or samples,while Windows Media player is supposed to allow you to view little movies with sound. Both are out dated and nearly worthless,as newer versions have come and gone, but webtv gets no updates to those programs. The sound on the version of Real Player that web tv uses now is horribly choppy,and when,for example, I try and listen to audio samples of a CD at Amazon.com or anywhere else, the song skips and plays in small chunks,with loads of distortion. The only time I've had the thing work correctly, is when a website actually has the option for people that have a 28k modem,(like the Webtv classic has) and believe me, there aren't many. A needle in a haystack. The version of the Windows media player webtv uses is even worse! You simply cannot see whatever image is supposed to be there,and most of the time, no site will even let you view anything because this software is so very out dated. The sound when using this is even worse than when attempting to use Real Player. Since webtv has a Keyboard,but no mouse,navigation on websites is a clumsy affair. You'll wish to click on an item,only to skip over it completely to something else by accident. You try to back track and the same thing happens in the opposite direction. You're forced to use the arrow buttons and Tab to move around websites,and there are scroll up and scroll down keys. There is no option for use of a scanner for webtv,only a printer,and the very few printers compatible with webtv are not [affordable] when compared to printers available for PCs.I would recommend this product to people that cannot afford a PC,have no prospects of getting one any time soon,and need a way to use email and surf the web.This might be suitable for the elderly,as it has an easy interface and set up. I also don't believe people can send you viruses. You will never get the full benefit of using the internet with this device. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

If you're used to watching letterboxed widescreen movies on a standard 4:3 aspect-ratio TV, wait 'til you see your favorites on a set that uses all of its available screen space for widescreen video. Philips' 30PW8402 30-inch RealFlat television has a 16:9 aspect ratio, so your widescreen DVD movies and HDTV television programming (from a DTV receiver, sold separately) will match their original dimensions. The 30PW8402's RealFlat tube provides reflection- and distortion-free pictures for maximum viewing comfort, while the DAF (Dynamic Astigmatic Focus) CRT gun ensures reliably excellent quality.

The set offers numerous image enhancements. Crystal Clear III encompasses velocity-scan modulation anda 2D Y/C digital comb filter, which improves quality of incoming interlaced video signals by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

Velocity-scan modulation improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas.

EyeFidelity (480p/1050i) brings interlaced sources like VCRs and non-progressive-scanning DVD players into the digital realm, giving you a choice between different line doubling and scanning techniques, progressive or interlaced, to reduce motion artifacts like jagged edges and stair stepping. A feature called Active Control 2 continuously analyzes incoming signals and optimizes picture color, sharpness, contrast, and digital noise reduction 60 times per second.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a lossless, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface to link the set with any audio/video source (such as a set-top box, DVD player, or AV receiver). HDMI supports standard-definition (SD), enhanced definition (ED), or high-definition (HD) video, plus multi-channel digital audio--all using a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports up to 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

Five audio/video connections accommodate composite-video, S-video, and high-definition component-video (480p/1080i), with one set of composite-video-based AV inputs for feeding a DVR, VCR, or surround receiver. A set of side AV inputs (composite- and S-video) simplify spontaneous hookups with camcorders, gaming consoles, and other devices.

The set pumps 10 watts RMS per channel into its twin speakers. If you're not using a surround speaker system at home, the set's Virtual Dolby Surround will simulate surround sound from any 2 speakers. A .125-inch headphone jack lets you listen in private.

Amazon.com Product Description

Designed to offer a superior large-screen image "without all of the bulk," the Philips 55PL977S Matchline Series Cineos TV gives you 55 inches of screen from a body that's less than 18 inches deep. Cineos screens make use of Philips' patented Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) reflective technology, which frees them to be lighter in weight and smaller in size than current projection lenses or CRT screens. The 55PL977S offers an HD-ready, flicker-free screen with perfect convergence, no visible pixel grid, and no risk of image burn-in.

The set offers native 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution and a multitude of analog and digital inputs, accepting high-resolution pictures from DTV set-top boxes, PCs, DVD players, and other devices, including both 1080i HD signals and 1,280 x 1,024 PC feeds. All standard-definition interlaced video signals are treated to Philips' PixelPlus line doubling, which turns them into near-high-definition (HD) images. By doubling the number of lines and the number of pixels per line, PixelPlus enhances both regular TV broadcasts and DVD inputs for unparalleled sharpness and depth.

Active Control performs continuous picture analysis and maintains control of Automatic Digital Noise Reduction and auto sharpness. A three-line digital comb filter gives you improved chroma/luminance separation over standard two-line comb filters.

The set's double-window, dual-tuner picture-in-picture feature splits the screen into two independent halves, letting you do everything from watching two shows simultaneously to watching one while surfing the other, or scanning channels while keeping an eye on video input one, two, or three. The TV also has single PIP (free positioning), as well as threefold and sixfold side PIPs. In addition, you get photo finish, freeze Main, and freeze PIP. Replay lets you playback the previous few seconds in a PIP screen--if you missed the action, replay it as many times as you want while your program continues in the other window.

The set uses two-way stereo speakers and also features an auto volume limiter to minimize drastic level changes between, say, a TV program and its commercials. A center-channel speaker input lets you use the set as a center--no bulky or costly center-channel required--and a rear-panel subwoofer output makes it easy to hook up a powered sub for deeper-than-deep bass effects or low-end musical authenticity.

A 20-watts-per-channel sound system offers both Virtual Dolby Surround and Incredible Surround, processing circuitry that produces the sensation of surround sound without the hassle of installing additional rear speakers.

Other connections include 3 each composite- and S-video inputs, 3 component-video inputs (2 HD, 1 standard), a 15-pin D-Sub PC connection, and a DVI direct digital input for use with a compatible DTV set-top box or other DVI device. A set of audio/video outputs lets you integrate the set with your stereo or surround receiver, and a set of side-mounted AV inputs with a headphone output simplifies hookup of a camcorder, gaming console, or VCR.

4-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware
I recently purchased (not from Amazon.com) a Philips Cineos 55" HDTV. Please be aware of an issue concerning the picture images. After hooking up the set and turning it on for the first time, I discovered the picture quality was very poor. The screen reflected "rainbow-like" images, almost dream-like. I wanted to eliminate that the cable was causing the pronounced picture distortion, so I hooked up a smaller TV and compared pictures through the use of a splitter. The picture on the small TV was fine while the Cineos was not. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. Now for the good news! I contacted Tweeter, with whom I purchased the TV, and the salesman gave me a "Rapid Response Team" number to call. After the call, Tweeter sent a TV technician to my home. He too confirmed the fact that there was a rainbow effect. Tweeter promptly exchange the TV with a new one the very next day!! I'm happy to say the second Cineos delivers the same outstanding picture quality that I saw in the showroom!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Clock doesn't work
I'd been eyeing this TV as a bedroom TV because of it's great looks. The light up "feet" and clock are eye catching but once I brought it home, I found that the clock didn't work. This item is now out of production so I couldn't find a replacement for it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Short-lived Product
At just 2 years after purchase this TV stopped responding to the remote control. An authorized Philips service center informed me that the computer chips were cracked and would cost more to replace than the TV was worth; Philips said it was out of the 90 day warranty, so I would have to pay all costs. The TV is useless without the remote. Since this TV has never been dropped or damaged, the defective chips must have been there since the beginning and deteriorated with use over time. I would not buy another Philips product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little TV.
Attractive and classy television with a clear picture and easy operation. The lighted feet and clock face are a nice touch. Has the neat feature of allowing you to set the alarm to wake up to any tv channel you set or to three different programmed sounds. Good sound quality with the speakers located on the front sides of the TV, it projects the sound around the room and towards the viewers unlike tvs that have the poorly designed speakers just on the sides. If looks matter to you buy this tv -it looks great. Not compromising performance for them here. Great for bedrooms.

5-0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic
This little "baby" is really a classic . The picture is unbelieveably "crisp", the size is just right for me when I want to alone and away from the 36" TV......Also the remote is simple and direct...click you're there . There's no "02"..."enter"....you just hit "2" and bing. Well I hope they sold many of these "babies"....cause they are super.Buy one you will love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect bedroom TV
I love the design, it's not just a square box, but ease of using sleep timer was clincher. Push of one button forwards it in 15 minute increments. I was wide awake by the time I programed my prior set's timer, an RCA.

The wake up timer is also easy to set. It does require a few steps though to initialy program but from then on it's one button too. You can wake to TV or 3 different alarms(rooster, xylophone or harp). It does not have a radio though as one reviewer states.

The nightlight is terrific, the two feet and clock have a cool neon glow. It too is set with push of one button. If you have it on, it will turn off automaticaly when you turn TV on.

The picture quality is fine, as it is for most TV's, and stereo sound is bonus for set this size. There are lot's of features to customize viewing.

Overall this is great small TV with some unique features and design and is worth the somewhat premium price. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Offering premium quality in a 34-inch CRT set, Philips' 34-inch Matchline Series widescreen 34PW9819 offers a Real Flat, high-definition picture tube to give you the best home-cinema viewing when you use the set with a progressive-scan DVD player or an outboard digital set-top box for DTV reception. Picture enhancements include a sophisticated 3D Y/C digital comb filter (which improves the quality of incoming interlaced video signals by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl) and Digital Natural Motion and Pixel Plus, which bring interlaced sources like VCRs and non-progressive-scanning DVD players into the digital realm. Pixel Plus digital processing offers a choice of two different scanning techniques: progressive scan or Pixel Plus.

Progressive scan doubles the number of picture lines, eliminating line flicker and providing a jitter-free picture. Pixel Plus improves the appearance of onscreen motion. The number of picture lines is increased along with the number of pixels per line, giving normal broadcast signals, DVD reproduction or Digital TV signals, unparalleled sharpness and depth. This gives you near-high-definition and natural looking detail from SD (standard-definition) interlaced signals. Further, a feature called Active Control continuously analyzes incoming signals and optimizes picture color, sharpness, contrast, and digital noise reduction 60 times per second.

Double-window, dual-tuner PIP (picture-in-picture) delivers the ability to split the television picture in half and display two independent television shows at the same time without having to use an additional source for tuning. A surf button lets you easily switch among only the channels that are of interest to you (the ones that you have programmed into the TV’s Surf control through the onscreen menu). Surf allows two-channel surfing or nine-channel surfing.

The set offers Dolby Pro Logic surround decoding along with four-channel sound and 15 watts per channel (left, center, right, subwoofer) with deep bass for a rich, theatrical presentation. An integrated center speaker sits in the best possible position for dialog reproduction, and a feature called 3D Surround simulates surround sound from any two speakers.

An HDCP-protected DVI-HDCP direct-digital HD input and two sets of high-definition component-video inputs accommodate a PC, a set-top box/HD satellite receiver, and a progressive-scan DVD player, while side and rear composite- and S-video inputs accommodate other hardware. Rear-panel audio/video outputs make it a cinch to hook the set up with your home theater surround receiver for a truly immersive AV experience. A .125-inch headphone jack lets you listen in private. The set includes an NTSC tuner for standard TV reception and comes with a universal remote control.

Amazon.com Product Description

Who says you need a big house for a big-screen TV? Philips' 62PL9774 Matchline Series Cineos TV gives you 62 inches of screen from a body less than 18 inches deep. And your sports events and movies have never looked better. Cineos screens make use of Philips' patented Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) reflective technology, which frees them to be lighter in weight and smaller in size than current projection lenses or CRT screens. The 62PL9774 offers an HD-ready, flicker-free screen with perfect convergence, no visible pixel grid, and no risk of image burn-in.

The set features native 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution and a multitude of analog and digital inputs, accepting high-resolution pictures from DTV set-top boxes, PCs, DVD players, and other devices, including both 1080i HD signals and 1,280 x 1,024 PC feeds. All standard-definition interlaced video signals are treated to Philips' PixelPlus line doubling, which turns them into near-high-definition (HD) images. By doubling the number of lines and the number of pixels per line, PixelPlus enhances both regular TV broadcasts and DVD inputs for unparalleled sharpness and depth.

Active Control Plus+ performs continuous picture analysis and maintains control of Automatic Digital Noise Reduction and auto sharpness. In addition to measuring picture noise, this feature uses an ambient light sensor to adjust the picture settings according to viewing conditions in the room. A 3-line digital comb filter gives you improved chroma/luminance separation over standard 2-line comb filters.

Digital Natural Motion (DNM) is a digital signal processing technique that eliminates motion "judder" in images, naturally smoothing your images. The Philips chip used for DNM has the processing power of several Pentium processors and the ability to detect fast-moving sequences from film and video material. It processes multi-directional movements simultaneously.

The set's double-window, dual-tuner picture-in-picture feature splits the screen into two independent halves, letting you do everything from watching two shows simultaneously to watching one while surfing the other, or scanning channels while keeping an eye on video input one, two, or three. The TV also has single PIP (free positioning), as well as threefold and sixfold side PIPs. In addition, you get photo finish, freeze Main, and freeze PIP. Replay lets you playback the previous few seconds in a PIP screen--if you missed the action, replay it as many times as you want while your program continues in the other window.

The set uses 2-way stereo speakers and also features an auto volume limiter to minimize drastic level changes between, say, a TV program and its commercials. A center-channel speaker input lets you use the set as a center--no bulky or costly center-channel required--and a rear-panel subwoofer output makes it easy to hook up a powered sub for deeper-than-deep bass effects or low-end musical authenticity.

A 20-watts-per-channel sound system offers both Virtual Dolby Surround and Incredible Surround, processing circuitry that produces the sensation of surround sound without the hassle of installing additional rear speakers.

Other connections include 3 each composite- and S-video inputs, 3 component-video inputs (2 HD, 1 standard), a 15-pin D-Sub PC connection, and a DVI direct digital input for use with a compatible DTV set-top box or other DVI device. A set of audio/video outputs lets you integrate the set with your stereo or surround receiver, and a set of side-mounted AV inputs with a headphone output simplifies hookup of a camcorder, gaming console, or VCR.

Amazon.com Product Description

Don't just watch the game, live it. Philips' 51-inch, high-definition television offers a massive, "you are there" picture while occupying minimal floor space: the silver projection set stands just 2 feet deep. It also sets you up to enjoy rich, detailed HDTV signals in all their glory, whether full 1080i resolution via a digital set-top box (not included) or seamless, progressive-scan images from compatible DVD players or satellite receivers.

Designed to meet the demands of curved CRT faceplates, Philips' 35-point convergence brings with it the accuracy of digital technology for flawless convergence of red, green, and blue electron guns and a superb picture with no colored haloes.

If a video image remains stationary, it can eventually burn a permanent after-image into the screen. Automatic Phosphor Aging Compensation (APAC) periodically shifts your television picture in increments that are tiny, but still large enough to blur image retention. Active Control performs continuous picture analysis and maintains control of Automatic Digital Noise Reduction and auto sharpness. A 3-line digital comb filter gives you Improved chroma/luminance separation over standard 2-line glass comb filters for a difference you can really see.

Eye Fidelity gives you a choice between 2 different scanning techniques: progressive and interlaced scanning. Progressive scanning doubles the number of visible picture lines per field by displaying all picture frame lines at once, eliminating line flicker. Interlaced mode reduces annoying motion artifacts and helps smooth jagged lines sometimes seen on images of curved and angled surfaces.

The set's single-tuner picture-in-picture feature lets you monitor one TV channel while simultaneously watching another of the set's inputs. Its 10-watts-per-channel sound system offers both Virtual Dolby Surround and Incredible Surround, processing circuitry that produces the sensation of surround sound without the hassle of installing additional rear speakers.

1-0 out of 5 stars I would advise against!!!
Where do I start! I bought this T.V. in december of 2003 for a family christmas present and it lasted 2 weeks before I lost the picture. I called the store and they replaced the t.v. which I thought was very nice but the screen had numerous scratches right out of the box. The manager saw them and said he would fax the order to get it fixed. A month later, a repairperson came to my house but he had the part to fix the picture and not the scratches. He had no knowledge of the scratches but he would place the order to get it fixed.
April rolled around and I lost the picture again on the new tv. I was a little discouraged considering this was not some 100.00 t.v. from Walmart, I paid a lot money for a television that was just not lasting, this was two t.v.'s in four months. I called Phillip's, thankfully I still had a warranty, but I found out they had closed there repair centers. They had a local repair shop come get the t.v. and I asked the Phillips rep. if they got the new screen yet. Now comes the battle!!!
Phillips said they would repair the t.v. but not the screen because they said they never recieved the order. The screens were only on warranty for 30 days and it was 3 months later. I explained to the phillips repair rep. that the store I bought it from faxed the order the same day. She told me that they closed their centers, here in florida, around that time so they do not have that information. Somehow this is my fault and I was told to call there customer service line. I called the number and I was told it was not their problem. I asked to speak to a supervisor, they refused to do it, then I asked for the number to Phillips headquarters which I found out does not exist but I could write a letter to them(still have not heard back from them) keep in mind this is the CUSTOMER SERVICE line. The customer service is based out of the carribean somewhere, I paid a couple thousand dollars for a t.v., had 2 different t.v.'s that could not last 5 months and Phillip's refused to help me.
The end result was I got the t.v. back a month and a half later,turns out it was a manufactures defect, the screen was fixed by the store that I bought the t.v. from because they could not get to Phillips either. It was the most frustrating time I have ever had and now I am going to purchase the extended warranty as I do not trust this t.v.
It is a great t.v. when it works, but I also have a Toshiba big screen that is not HDTV and in four years time I have never had a problem. So in closing I should caution"BUYER BEWARE"

5-0 out of 5 stars Hands-down, the greatest!
I had the unique (yet torturous) pleasure of accompianing my friend to Best Buy where he purchased this tv about a year ago. I have used it countless times since then, and in my opinion it is the finest non-plasma television I have seen.

The screen is absolutely humungous--you don't know 60 inches until you've seen it in person! The tiny picture here does not do justice to this behemoth.

I hope to purchase this television for myself later this year, and I know I will enjoy it as much as I did the first time I saw it in the store. I just hope it will fit through my door!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Size and Value
I saw the same TV at Best Buy and was happy when I came to Amazon and could buy it for over $600 less. When people come over they think that it is a $5,000 HD-Ready TV.

We are very happy with the size and the value! It is very fun watching DVD's on and the picture looks great! ... Read more
