Philips 19PFL4706 Review – 19-inch LED LCD HDTV

Philips 19PFL4706 Review: 19” inch LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Philips 19PFL4706 LED LCD TV. The regularly increasing number of TV channels has encouraged manufacturers to launch inexpensive and normal TV sets in the market. Most of the modern family purchase high-end 3D HD TVs for their main living room. The high-end models sport a bigger screen size and come with a number of advanced features like 1080p HD resolution, 3D technology support, and wired or wireless internet connectivity.

Once you add an advanced model to the main living room of your home, an inexpensive or normal TV set will be required to complement or backup the main TV set. The 109-inch budget LED TV model is launched by Philips to suit the requirement of the second TV set for a modern family. The manufacturer has provided the model with a smaller screen size, normal features and a lower price-tag. It offers 720p resolution which will not match the requirement of the latest movies, television programs and video games.


Most of the recent digital content is being made in an original 1080p HD resolution. You can watch all types of content in an exact manner on a TV set that offers the same resolution. The 720p resolution will suit only occasional viewing of normal television programs like news, weather and chat show. Similar to the resolution, the 60 Hz refresh rate offered by the set is too low to support a wide variety of scenes. It might not impact your viewing of normal digital content, but the TV set will not be effective in completely removing the motion blur for the faster moving sports and action scenes.

Philips 19PFL4706 Features and Specifications Review:

720p HD Resolutions
60 Hz Refresh Rate
Ultra Slim Design
Pixel-Precise HD Engine
SRS TruSurround HD Sound

The refresh rate will also impact the popularity of the TV set among kids. As most of the kids love to watch the sports and action channels, the model will not suit their television viewing experience. However, the smaller screen size and normal video quality make the model considerable to complement your main 3D TV set. You can accommodate the slim and lightweight LED TV model inside a small apartment as well as place the TV set inside your bedroom, study, kitchen and dormitory. However, the lack of any angular viewing feature will affect the way you place and use the TV set.

Your options to access a wide variety of online and offline digital content is restricted as the model does not offer any smart connectivity and networking options. However, the basic video quality and smaller screen size of the model will not encourage viewers to access the offline digital library on the TV screen. On the whole, the overall video, connectivity and networking related features allow you to use the model only for watching normal and informative television programs being aired across different television channels.
