Up for Review: Philips 47PFL7403D/F7 LCD HDTV.

47PFL7403D/F7 is a fantastic model of the Philips 7000 LCD HDTV series. In terms of design, features and performance it looks like a clone of the 7403D/27 model in the line-up. You would not feel any difference between them at the first look. However, after turning it on and listening to the first audio, you would feel a little bit of difference in the sound. The musical trio such as Virtual Dolby Digital, Incredible Surround and BBE constitute the audio system. For better sound production the TV has got Auto Volume Adjustment feature which works fine. Philips has also taken an attempt to limit the power consumption, which is another stand-out character of the high def TV set. Another good thing is that the panel’s cost does not rise even if it has got a bigger digital screen.
