Philips 52PFL7422D/37 Review – 52-inch LCD HDTV

Originally Reviewed on February 26th, 2014





Up for Review: Philips 52PFL7422D/37 LCD HDTV.

Philips brought a lot of joy to all its fans by introducing the 52-inch LCD HDTV series. They could enjoy beautiful pictures on a larger screen. However, many of them still wanted to have the bigger TV at a low cost without compromising on the picture and sound quality. 52PFL7422D/37 is particularly the model in the 7000 series, which is quite affordable and a fairly decent performer. In terms of performance and features, it may not compete with a high-end panel featuring internet TV, 3D playback etc. but it can vouch for optimal picture quality and superb sound. More importantly, the display quality does not alter with the change in lighting conditions inside the room. Although few newer versions have come later in the 7000 series, 7422D/37 is still the first choice of many.


We will discuss the TV in greater detail but before that let’s mention its prime features and specifications.

Philips 52PFL7422D/37 Features and Specifications:

  • TV Type: LCD HDTV
  • Screen Size: 52 inches
  • Pixel Plus with 6ms motion response time
  • Full HD 1920x1080p screen resolution
  • Digital Natural Motion
  • Line Doubling Progressive Scanning
  • Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 10000:1
  • Matching swivel stand
  • 16-watt Sound with Virtual Dolby Digital and Dynamic Bass Enhancement (DBE)
  • 1 USB, 3 HDMI and 2 Component Inputs

Philips is known for its fantastic picture display quality. The Pixel Plus technology is an excellent invention by the company, which is included on this model. The technology is programmed in a way such that it makes every pixel on the incoming content match perfectly with its surrounding pixels, resulting in sharpest possible pictures. Full HD 1920x1080p screen resolution delivers breathtaking and unrivalled high-def images and videos without any flicker. Digital Natural Motion helps produce continuous and smooth motion on fast moving content. Judder effect on fast motion sequences has really been a headache for many conventional TV viewers, but this 52-inch flat panel will make you feel happy. The Natural Motion corrects the judder and produces fine pictures with higher contrast and natural color details. You need not worry about the lighting conditions in your living room since the TV is uniquely programmed to adapt to the surrounding environment automatically.

Another praiseworthy feature is Line Doubling Progressive Scanning. This technology scans all the incoming image frames progressively and produces twice the sharpness produced by a conventional TV screen. The dynamic contrast ratio of 10000:1 provides an extra advantage to the panel. The display screen is thin and eye-catching, which is perfect for a flat LCD panel. Moreover, the matching swivel stand gives a touch of classy look. So, the panel is an absolute delight to watch even if it’s OFF.

Let’s talk about the audio. Since it’s been introduced prior to the models like 7403D/F7 and is built with 16-watt audio, the sound may not be as loud as that of a 30-watt sound system. However, the audio is equipped with technologies like Virtual Dolby

Digital and Dynamic Bass Enhancement (DBE) to offer you fantastic sound all the time. It also offers you an easy settings option to adjust the sound, bass and treble to your preference. If it’s properly adjusted, you would enjoy theater like music.
Digital connectivity options like USB, HDMI and several component inputs are available on the cabinet. This enables you to connect you external devices and view your treasured content on the big TV. Overall, you will get full value for your bucks.
