Philips are hoping to take a further hold on the LED TV market with the introduction of two new sets to add to their already impressive 9000 LED Pro Series lineup.
Shipping in December 2009 will be the 40 inch 40PFL9704 and the 46 inch 46PFL9704 televisions.
On paper the features are truly impressive and will surely give the likes of Samsung and Sony a run for their money.
Lets take a look at what they are offering:
- Full HD 1920 × 1080p resolution
- 200Hz Refresh Rate
- 1ms Response Rate
- Full LED Backlighting
- Ambilight Spectra 3
- 5,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast
- 179″ Viewing Angle
- 5 HDMI Sockets
- 2 SCART Sockets
- 4 Built-in Speakers
- Net TV with Integrated Wi-Fi wireless connectivity
- Built in Tuner Support for DVB-Terrestrial and DVB-Cable
Being a Full Back-lit where the LEDs are situated along the whole of the rear of the set we are expecting a really impressive picture from these sets. Of course there is a trade off in slimness when compared with the popular Samsung Egde-lit TVs but these sets are quoted at being 89mm in depth so they are a move in the right direction.
Coupled with the now defacto energy saving qualities of LCD LED back-lit televisions this latest range of stunning looking Philips LED TVs will certainly cause a stir in what is now becoming a very competitive market.
This is definitely one of the best set of specifications to come out this year and as you can expect they have prices to match.
The 40PFL9704 will retail at around £1799.00 and the 46PFL9704 will be a whopping £2499.00 .
Lets hope that when they hit the shops the reviews live up to the expectations.
