philips 32pfl9604The Philips 32PFL9604 32-inch LCD HDTV impresses in so many ways I don’t know where to start.

I will start with the design. You can tell straight away that the Philips 32PFL9604 is a highend HDTV. With a slim aluminum body and touch sensitive buttons the 32PFL9604 looks amazing. I love it’s design, it’s a refreshing change from 90% of the other HDTV currently on the market.

As well as having a great design the Philips 32PFL9604 is also packed with the latest features and highend specifications. One of it’s great new features is it’s true Internet connectivity. Unlike most other “Internet connected” HDTVs which just offer “Widgets” and a small portal limited to a small selection of sites, the Philips 32PFL9604 offers the full unrestricted Internet.

The Internet can be delivered to the 32PFL9604 by either an Ethernet cable, or by the built in 802.11g Wi-Fi, with no need to buy an additional “dongle”.
