Philips 42PFL9803

It has been hard to find any first hand reviews and experiences with the Philips 42PFL9803 so far, the a Norwegian website called aftenposten, were lucky enough to review the 42PFL9803, where they give it an overall score of 5 out of 6, and a very high rating for image quality. They say, it is expensive, but it’s very nice, and sets a new high new standard for black and contrast levels. The color reproduction is very precise, and we have hardly seen better noise reduction. There is little doubt that Philips 42PFL9803 is a hot HDTV.
