Ok design is subjective but 9 is a bit strong. Personally I find the rounded corners a bit dated. Also the bezels on all current Philips models look too wide in relation to the screen on these smaller screen models. Samsung and some Sonys are better in this respect.
Nothing regarding this TV, but as there are no forums there is nowhere else really to post.At CES were there no TV's ? I've been waiting for all the latest and greatest news on the slimmest, best looking, stunning panels for this year and so far there seems to be nothing it all (bar a 70" Goliath).
Did you bother to test input lag on this TV?
@AJ - There new TVs at CES - nothing really groundbreaking though - larger & more OLED prototypes (will these ever reach the market place?), improved 3D etc.. but nothing to really scream about. As far as 2011 model ranges go, enhancements look incremental of the same - improved 3D and interactive services seemed to be the biggest theme, plus now expected improvements in picture technology, etc... Nothing stand out sexy though.You're right though - not much being reported on TVs from CES. You can find a bit reported on on other sites - e.g. TechRadar, What HiFi, but not much.. Other places you may find news is on the manufacture's own sites e.g.http://www.sony.co.uk/hub/brav...
I done the ambilight effect on the cheap, by sticking some coloured led christmas lights on the back on my TV with blue tack. Looks pretty good, sure it does not change to match whats happening on screen but its £300 cheaper ;-)Also if you want to do a bit fancier you can get led strips from ikea or ebay.
@brian. LOL you are joking right??
@lamboy not at all i am serious. Will try to take a photo of it later.Honestly if anyone is taking down the christmas tree give it a try. You can stick the lights to the back of the tv. The lights are not visible but the different colours shine on to the wall behind the tv a la ambilight.
@brian that would be bambilight then would it (after rudolphs 1st born) ?
@brian - me too. Amazing things, Christmas lights
@Epic - you're right, 'design is subjective'. I loathe the sharp, black, shiny rectangles we're nowadays lumbered with - presumably to fit with the soulless homes that are in fashion. This Philips is much friendlier, IMO.
