The television has become a part of our daily routine. Be it the news in the morning, the soaps in the afternoon or the movies in the evening; there’s no getting away from the TV. It is the quintessential entertainer of families around the world. Between attractive loan offers and dropping prices the television sales are on the rise. From being able to connect to the internet and being able to view 3D content right in the comfort of the home, TVs are now offering something more than just entertainment.
Philips is a well-known name in the world of electronics. Philips Televisions are known for their high-quality, yet affordable electronic products. This is the review of the Philips 49PFL4351 49 inch full HD LED TV featuring Philip’s Pixel HD Plus technology and Perfect Motion rate for delivering crystal-clear, blur-free motion for an immersive viewing experience. The bezels are almost non-existent which allow for really wide viewing angles. It also carries on-board two stereo speakers with a peak output of 20W. The Philips 49PFL4351 is available at a price of Rs. 48,990/- in online stores.
The Philips 49PFL4351 is a sleek full HD LED TV which is packaged inside a very slim frame with a depth measuring mere 80mm (without stand). The bezels surrounding the display are so narrow that the display appears to be bezel-less from a distance. The frame surrounding the display is matte black with a matching set of table-top stand. The stand can be removed when the TV needs to be mounted on the wall. A mounting bracket is, thoughtfully, provided in the sales package. At the front, there is nothing but the beautiful, bright display.
The ports and sockets of this television are located at the back side along with the television’s controls. The ports include 4 HDMI connections, 3 USB connections, 1 AV connection, 1 Component Video (YPbPr) input, 1 PC-In VGA, 1 Headphone out, 1 Antenna IEC75, 1 AV output, 1 Ext 3.5 mm jack and 1 Composite (CVBS) input. The Philips 49PFL4351 weighs in at 11kg with the stand and 10.5 kg without it.
The Philips 49PFL4351 sports a full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels widescreen resolution for better depth and clarity. It supports full HD signals from all sources including Blu-ray and HD gaming consoles. It features an extensively upgraded signal processing algorithm to resolve this higher signal quality and resolution. It delivers super-bright and colourful pictures with a brilliant flicker-free progressive scan. It also sports the ‘Pixel Plus HD’ technology for finer details and clarity. Pixel Plus HD offers a unique combination of sharpness, natural detail, vivid colours and naturally smooth motion on all types of HD as well as standard TV signals and streamed content. Noise and artefacts, in content from all sources, are detected and neatly eliminated ensuring crystal-clear picture.
The 240Hz Perfect Motion Rate (PMR), by Philips creates extreme motion sharpness for clear images during fast action sequences. The combination of fast panel refresh rate, HD Natural Motion and the unique processing algorithm show the combined visible effect for unparalleled motion sharpness. The powerful, stereo 20W RMS amplifiers work together to create life-like sounds and complement the rich viewing experience. It supports HDMI input to carry uncompressed audio-video signals through a single cable. With Philips Easylink, almost all the connected devices can be controlled by just a single remote control.
The Philips 49PFL4351 also supports MHL which is a mobile audio-video interface for directly connecting mobile and other portable devices to high-definition TVs. Once connected through an optional MHL cable, these devices are simultaneously charged while streaming content to the TV. The USB connector allows access to jpeg photos, mp3 music and video files through USB drives, which can be navigated using the simple on-screen content browser.
