42 in.


The Philips 42PFL3704D/F7 is an entry-level TV with a mid-range price. At almost $1000, we weren't very impressed with the TV. It seemed to have a hard time dealing with color. The gamut was off, the color temperature fluctuated wildly, and color representation isn't great.

The 42PFL3704D/F7 is currently available for $930, but we'd recommend waiting for a sale.
