    Another day, another of Philips' seemingly endless run of LCD TVs. The 37PF9631D is one of the brand's higher-end TVs - which is apparent from its looks, which combine exceptionally heavy duty build quality with real designer panache

    • Responsive and detailed picture, Decent sound
    • Slightly limited colour range, Some lack of detail from dark images

    Conclusion : By no means perfect but the pros certainly outweigh the cons...

    Feature-wise, this plasma has everything but the kitchen sink crammed in, but there are minor performance foibles. It's just oozing with the sort of tricks and treats that have become Philips' trademarks in recent years

    • Outstanding connections, Sharp sound
    • Pixel Plus 2 HD sometimes makes colours too bright, Some fizzing on skin tones

    Conclusion : Phillips puts in an impressive, if sometimes fizzy, performance...

    It's not the young and sprightly 42in LCD it was but this Philips is still a tempting proposition, particularly with its new bargain price tag

    • Excellent picture for the price. Plenty of features. Easy set-up and use
    • Colour balance a little pallid. Pictures can suffer from noise

    Does Philips make better LCD or Plasma TVs? John Archer attempts to find out.

    Conclusion : Comparing this Philips plasma set with the brand’s similarly sized LCD TVs, we’d probably be inclined to go for the LCDs. However, that's certainly not meant to imply that you should always choose LCD over plasma, for there are a number of plasma......

    A 50in Plasma from Philips for under two grand! Is it too good to be true?

    Conclusion : Ultimately the 50PF9631D’s picture flaws suggest that Philips’ core plasma panel technology is perhaps not quite as up to partnering Pixel Plus technology as the company's LCD technology. But the overall image quality is still solid, and a huge feature......

    With its wide black bezel, silvery speakers, and semitransparent stand, the Philips 42PF9631D 42-inch plasma HDTV is a graceful and imposing presence. If you walk around the unit, you'll find more to admire: well-chosen, easy-to-reach inputs and...

    • Good screen; Ambilight adds interest Responsive, intuitive remote
    • No CableCard slot

    Conclusion : It's worth reiterating that this price of $2399 is list; the 42PF9631D wasn't available for sale on our pricing date of 6/6/06. Street prices are often lower--sometimes substantially lower--than list prices. If you're interested in the 42PF9631 but are......

    Is that the Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? At this latitude? Localized entirely in my living room? No wait; it's just the ethereal glow of this 42-inch

    • Crisp 1024 x768-pixel resolution. Responsive light sensor dimming. Picture-in-picture is a snap. Intuitive remote. Plenty of resizing options. MP3 and slideshow compatible via USB. Color tweaking out the wazoo. Ambilight effect + HD Content = orgasmic...
    • Confusing menus. Included stand is nerve-wrackingly flimsy. Only composite cables included. Light on A/V inputs. Smart Picture Control too fidgety. Poor quality speakers. Ambilight heft + stairs = hernia
