For a quality 1080p model at this price it's awesome....

Just ordered 2 to replace the crappy grundig ones in our spare rooms (which cost £219 each 3 months ago from argos)

Looks like it will support Freeview HD when it starts broadcasting later this year in some areas.

Any reviews? The price is pretty good.

Only one HDMI, one VGA, one SCART, one component. You'd need a DVI->HDMI adaptor for a PC. At least you can connect up a legacy video device like a PS2 or older DVD player via the SCART socket. Wii can use component.

I did try looking for reviews but it's a new model so they're limited....

Very good spec though and 1 HDMi is fine for most if it's for a space room or bedroom..

PLay.com have just put it on their site and have 33% off straight away....works for me

I note freeview HD mentioned, are there now several tv's that should support this? I think I saw one mentioned yesterday - seems functionality worth picking out, for those that will be using freeview, rather than freesat, virgin, sky etc.

This TV only supports DVB-T MPEG4 which is not the same standard for Freeview HD which is DVB-T2.

I believe the DVB-T MPEG4 standard is used in Ireland.

To the best of my knowledge, there are no Freeview HD products available as yet, Pace are starting some trials next month when Granada (Winter Hill), and Crystal Palace commence HD broadcasts on 2nd December 2009.

Agreed, Mpeg4 support in a UK TV without support for DVB-T2 is a waste of time. You will end up having to buy another freeview box if you want to receive HD. I wonder how long it will be before all UK tvs include DVB-T2 support as standard.

I noticed on the Philips UK website this is listed under PC monitors with built in TV tuner rather than in their TV section, are there any downsides with this rather than buying a dedicated TV, I am just looking for a bedroom TV and won't be hooking it upto a PC, Thanks for any advice

Usually pc monitors come with a 3 year warranty unlike a Tv which just comes with 1 year.

Also noticed that the Philips site and product spec does not specifically mention FREEVIEW, it only states "DVB Terrestrial"

Not sure if this is an issue or if "DVB Terrestrial" = FREEVIEW ???

I think Freeview is just the BBC branding for DVB Terrestrial, probably because it's more consumer friendly.

Well, not just the BBC, a consortium of sky, bbc, itv and ch4, but yeah. DVB Terrestrial (DVB-T) is the technical name for it, same thing.

I don't really see the point of 1080p HD on a 22" screen though, and with 32" 720p sets dropping in price all the time to only £50 more than this, I would have to say theres sod all reason to buy this. The only reason I can think is those strange people (usually wives) who object to TVs based solely on them being "too big". Too big? There is no such thing!

I've just bought one, reason being that we have just bought a new house which means my PS3 is going in the spare room, which will also be an office, so my current 27" tft is too big and this one will do nicely as a PS3 TV and a PC monitor.
