Philips 40PFL3505D Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LCD TV is $14 per inch of screen size. This is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 13% of new TVs.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual energy use is 4.4 kWh per inch of screen size. This TV is ENERGY STAR, but it is less efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 2 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has less key features than average and ranks in the bottom 6% of new TV designs.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Philips 40PFL3505D Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Electronic inputs are not available on the side of the TV. Devices such as DVD players and video game players must be connected in the rear.
LED Does not incorporate LED backlighting. LED technology is more expensive, but it saves on energy and allows the TV to be significantly thinner.
Local Dim Local dimming technology is only available on LCD televisions with LED backlighting.
Frame Rate Uses a standard 60 Hz (60 frames per second) which is adequate for many programs and movies, but you may experience slight motion blur during fast action scenes.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Philips 40PFL3505D Review
DLNA Not DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance). DLNA promotes interoperability between electronic devices, which makes sharing digital content easier and more convenient.
3D This Philips television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi This Philips HDTV is not Wi-Fi capable. You cannot wirelessly connect to your home-based internet network.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Philips TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This TV is thicker than average with a depth of 4.2″. If you plan to mount it on the wall, you may consider a thinner model. – Philips 40PFL3505D Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Philips 40PFL3505D Review
HDMI Provides 3 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and two other devices such as a DVD player and video game console. Do you need to connect a PC as well?
