Originally Reviewed on February 25th, 2014

Up for Review: Philips 47PFL7403D/27 LCD HDTV.

Razor sharp picture display, high quality and seamless video streaming without any eye distraction, ultra clear sound and a good brand name – this is what you basically look for on a new TV set, right? What if you’re offered a top model from Philips that includes a few extra features along with the ones mentioned above, all at a budget-friendly price tag? You would definitely go with the set. Philips 47PFL7403D/27 is specifically the model we’re talking about. The increased LCD HD display screen, enhanced sound system, affordable cost and longer life are what make the TV stand out.


Below, we have got a small list of its important features and specifications. Let’s have a look at it before we study the model in greater detail.

Philips 47PFL7403D/27 Features and Specifications:

  • TV Type: LCD HDTV
  • Screen size: 47 inches
  • Full HD 1080p Screen Resolution
  • Perfect Pixel HD Engine
  • HD Natural Motion
  • 120Hz Clear LCD with 2ms Response Time
  • 30-watt Invisible Sound System with BBE Enhancement
  • USB & HDMI Connectivity with EasyLink option
  • Easy Settings Assistant

Philips does a fine job by increasing the screen size to 47 inches. With the increased size, now the LCD panel looks even thinner and slicker. What can you talk about the picture display? It’s just amazing. Due to the inclusion of Perfect Pixel HD Engine the TV delivers astoundingly beautiful display. Perfect Pixel HD technology is coded in such a way that every pixel of the incoming content is magnified to perfectly match its surrounding pixels on the TV screen. Result is fantastic display with optimum clarity, sharpness and colors. Full HD 1920x1080p screen resolution is another special feature of 47PFL7403D/27, which is so far the highest screen resolution in the HDTV segment. Thankfully, Philips has made it completely future proof to support HD content from all kinds of HD sources.

The model does not disappoint you when watching videos and fast motion pictures. It includes HD Natural Motion, which produces smooth and life-like pictures and videos. While watching moving scenes, the most annoying thing is the judder effect. Thanks to the HD Natural Motion, you will never feel judder effects while watching films and motion sequences. The 120Hz refresh rate produces realistic and continuous sequences when you are watching fast moving content like Hollywood action movies and sports on the LCD panel. The 120Hz refresh rate uses Double Frame Rate Insertion to increase the sharpness of motion reproduction to more than twice produced on a conventional LCD. The 2 milliseconds response time makes sure that all sequences displayed on the screen are perfectly smooth and continuous.

Let’s move to the Audio section. First thing to consider here is that the speakers are invisible since their color blends perfectly with the cabinet color. Performance-wise, the 30-watt sound system offers excellent sound with clear audible vocals. Furthermore, the audio is BBE-licensed, so you would experience high definition sound with real natural quality.

The flat panel includes 1 USB and 4 HDMI ports that enable you to connect compatible USB and multimedia devices like your USB stick, digital camera and Blu-ray player, and watch the external device content on the big LCD screen. It also offers an EasyLink HDMI option to easily share functionality between your TV and connected devices.

The TV also offers you an Easy Settings Assistant Wizard to help you personalize the color, display, ambilight and sound settings to your preference. It is pretty easy to adjust the settings with your remote control system. Due to the optimum display and audio quality the TV ensures that you are always a part of the action.
