This 50PFP5532 comes with a 50" screen, bringing you maximum visual comfort, and employs Pixel Plus 3 HD and Clear LCD image improvement technologies for clearer and more precise images.

Whatever the layout of your room, you can follow the life of your favourite soap characters thanks to its 160° viewing angle. The 50PFP5532 plasma screen also includes two HDMI sockets and a digital tuner for even more possibilities. With the 50PFP5532 plasma screen from Philips, you'll see television in a whole new light!
Screen Format 16:9 Image ratio (width/height). There are 2 formats. The traditional 4:3 format and the 16:9 format. The 4:3 format can be used for all programmes whereas the 16:9 is more specifically designed for use in home cinema systems.
Screen size 50" (127 cm) The size of the screen is measured diagonally and often shown in inches (1 inch equals 2.54cm). The higher this value, the larger the screen. For maximum comfort, the distance between the user and the television should be 3 times the diagonal size of the screen.
Brightness (in cd/m²) 1300 Brightness is measured in cd/m² and it corresponds to the brilliance of white tones. The higher this value, the brighter and more natural the image.
Contrast 15,000 Contrast is the difference between the brightest white tone and darkest black tone on the LCD screen. A contrast rate of 1500:1 for example indicates that the clearest image is 1,500 times brighter than the darkest. The higher this value, the higher the contrast rate.
Response time (in ms) The response time of a plasma screen is practically zero. It is only limited by the speed of the video processor. The response time is the time required (in milliseconds) for the pixels which compose the screen, to switch from one colour to the other. The lower this time, the clearer and sharper the image. A slow response time provokes an afterglow effect (light lag) in quick scene display. For plasma screens, the value of the response time is insignificant as it is limited by the speed of the video processor.
Resolution (horizontal x vertical - in pixels) 1366 x 768 The resolution indicates the number of pixels that make up the screen, both horizontally and vertically. The higher this number of pixels, the finer and clearer the image.
Viewing angle (horizontal/vertical - in°) 160 The viewing angle (in degrees) determines the maximum angle from which the image on the screen can be seen correctly. The higher this value, the further away you can be to view the screen's image correctly.
Audio Audio Power 2 x 10 W Determined in Watts, the sound power delivered by the speakers of your screen.
Noise reduction No Whether its sound or images, noise constitutes a parasite signal that reduces the quality of the final signal. On the screen, it is present in the form of small luminous granules.
Mono/Stereo Sound Nicam stereo sound Indicates the type of sound delivered by the loudspeakers of your television
Speakers 2
Connectivity Connectivity 2 x HDMi Indicates the range of audio and/or video outputs and inputs available. This is important to note if you wish to build your own system using numerous appliances (DVD player, video recorder, etc)
SCART connectors 2 The scart socket is a wide spread jack that enables you to transmit a video signal in composite, S-video or RVB format as well as an audio signal in both directions. This connectivity is therefore really versatile and allows you to connect a large range of screen accessories.
DVI Input No A DVI input (for a Digital Video Interface)
transmits a digital video signal without using the analogue jack. It thus enables you to transmit signals without losing in quality. Generally speaking, it can be used to connect devices to a computer of DVD compatible player.
HDMI Input 2 The HDMI input (for a High Definiton Multimedia Interface) eventually replaces the scart socket. It allows for the transmission of high quality digital audio/video signals.
PC Input No The PC (VGA) input enables you to connect your computer to your television without needing to use a VGA adapter.
Audio output Headphones socket Indicates the transmission possibilities of a television's audio signal to an external device. The headset socket is the most wide spread and it allows you to enjoy your favourite programmes without disturbing others around you. It is extremely useful for those who have hearing difficulties.
Tuner Standard PAL I

(00-00-000) Indicates the reception standards of the tuner(s) built-in your television.
Double Tuner Digital tuner The double tuner is really handy when you want to watch 2 programmes at the same time. However, you can only use the Picture in Picture mode with other sources. This mode requires an HDMI connection.
Functions TV text No Teletext is a program, in text format, that is diffused at the same time as visual programmes on the television. It comes with many features, including current affairs information, a programme guide and even subtitles for TV programmes. Please note that Teletext is not available in some countries.

You can buy this item for £679 on ebay without delivery option. There is a choice of five outlets to collect in person.

Cold because anything above 42" (in both experts' and my opionion) should be FULL HD 1080P not HD READY, as the difference in quality will be easy to judge at such size.

Unless you suffer from myopia and don't wear glasses.... then you might as well stick with your old low-res box...

Drivel, tell that to anyone who has purchased a Pioneer or Panasonic 50 inch 720p plasma who will be more than delighted with their purchase!

As for this TV seems like a decent deal but the Panasonic 50PX70 can be had for roughly the same price and is regarded as a better TV.

Keep saying it, why buy any new televeision that's not the industry best-standard of 1080p.

Why buy old technology..??

Easy to judge from 3 feet away, from any further away than that, they are virtually indistinguishable from each other!
I looked at many, many TV's, both 720P and 1080P, before settling on a 50" 720P Samsung plasma, mainly due to the fact that I wouldn't justify a £500 difference to 'step up' to 1080P, and unless I had my nose virtually touching the screens, the picture quality was near enough perfect on all HD sources on both resolutions. :thumbsup:

1080P doesn't guarantee picture quality though, but unfortunately most people seem to think that it does. Contrast, black levels, colour quality, etc, are all more important to final image quality than resolution alone, and as 90% of people still watch mostly SD material, 1080P is still overkill, unless you can get it for the same price as 720P. ;-)

.... yeah its all to do with panel quantity over no. of pixels

I'd still take my SD - yes only 852x480 Plasma - even for H-Def material over any plasma under a Kuro .. genuinely - else I would have upgraded by now .... (old pro' panel Panasonic)

hmmm, ok first off there is no way your standard definition set can display the quality of a HD or Full HD panel. Im sorry but it comes down to maths, there over double the pixels in a Full HD set. Ive seen even the cheapest Samsung or Philips or LG way out perform a relatevly high price set.

Where the tv comes into its own is in the picture processing. Yes, even with a Full HD set it may not perform as good as a HD ready (1080p against 720p), it all comes down to the software processing the image. Philips is the best i have seen processing a HD source But youll pay a price for a good set. But there are others that come close , in my opinion.

Please before anyone buys one of these sets, get a good viewing of it. Or read a good review from one of the many mags out there.
Dont just assume HD ready or Full HD means good. Especially with an LCD panel!

This is a plasma TV screen isn't it ?

Why then in the description are references made to an LCD screen !!! :p

In AV Forums I once read about Philips plasmas going on the blink just after the 12 month warranty period.

Apparently - though I can't say whether it's true or not or whether it's still the case - cheapo components with a short lifespan are used in their TVs hence a guaranteed breakdown after a certain time.

Stop moaning and go out and buy a REAL1080p for £1200 then report back the difference. ;-)

Most who know on here state they cannot see it and VERY few application support this size unless you upscale. I only posted it as it is a VERY GOOD lowest available price so hopefully those reading would benefit from it.

Personally I have a CRT 24" and a DVD / HD recorder and (god forbid) a VIDEO:oops:

Please vote on the merits of the price, i.e can you find it cheaper ( NO ), not if you may or may not like it !!! even though you have no intention of buying it :thinking:

Picture quality is not down to number of pixels only.
Also consider viewing distance. The distance I sit (4m) from mine (50" Plasma) you could not appreciate 1080p over 720p, so saved some money.
Next someones going to say that Plasma is **** compared to LCD.
#14
plasma is sht compared to lcd :p
#15
Cor!
Blimey!

I for one will be so happy when the industry standard is reached whereby ALL Tv's, (like the old 405 line and later the 625 lines) are of the same display quality.

No more ' I know better than you' arguments followed by the 'I told you so's' that will follow when certain changes take place.
It is all so trivial and stems from the male psyche to dominate and therefore shows great weakness.

Why should it matter, on HDUK, who is more correct and who is wrong. You will never meet these people so they are no threat to you, honestly.
