Phillips introduced their new 63-inch 1080p HDTV at the 2007 CES show in Las Vegas.

The big-screen experience is closer to home than ever before with the introduction of Philips Plasma HDTV. Packing features that deliver a dynamic punch to the viewing experience, the grand 63PFP7422D offers stunning picture quality thanks to 1080p resolution and Pixel Plus 3 HD technology.

Philips 63PFP7422D will wow viewers with spectacular widescreen imagery and a high impact HD, 1080p picture. Perfect for showcasing 1080p Blu-ray discs, the next-generation format for home entertainment, the powerful FlatTV provides consumers with the movie theater experience in the comfort of their own home.

Adding to the image performance, the new 63PFP7422D utilizes Philips Pixel Plus 3 HD technology. Philips Pixel Plus 3 HD enhances content from already pristine sources such as HD signals and DVDs. Pixels of an incoming picture are altered to match surrounding pixels resulting in an image that is brilliant and natural. Skin tones are natural, colors pop and details become amazingly lifelike.

Lending a touch of elegance to this powerful performance, the Plasma features a sophisticated design that will enhance the decor of any environment. For additional convenience, the FlatTV features a host of connectivity options including multiple HDMI and USB inputs. The USB inputs enable users to display images in slideshow format as well as play MP3 tracks through the FlatTVs sound system.

Set-up made simple
Ready to connect out of the box, users need not worry with a complicated set-up.  Philips new Settings Assistant software is a simple, easy to follow guide that activates when the set is first turned on.  Users are guided through six preferences, including contrast, sharpness and color saturation, where they optimize the picture settings to their personal preference.   Customizing the picture is as simple as selecting which option A or B according to the consumers preference. This new application lets consumers enjoy their FlatTV display without a complex set-up.

The 63PFP7422D will be available in June with a suggested retail price of $5,499.

Best Affordable HDTV's

You want to move up to HDTV but just can't stomach the high price for the best 1080p available. Like many people out there, you may be interested in moving up to an affordable flatscreen TV for space savings at home and the better imagery of HDTV. Many people are amazed and very happy with the quality of the lower priced HDTV's for sale at most retailers. It is true, they are not as good as a top brand 1080p with the latest technology when you compare the two. As technology improves, the prices will drop on current models. The TV market is much the way the computer market is with technology. The latest and greatest is highly priced, but will soon be improved upon and price will drop greatly.

Top Rated Affordable HDTVs

  • Vizio has LCD HDTV's from 20-inch to 47-inch and plasma HDTVs from 42-inch to 60-inch * available in large chains such as Costco, allowing easy returns if you are not happy.
  • Polaroid with LCD and Plasma HDTVs
  • Maxtent LCD and Plasma Models
  • Westinghouse has affordable and high end models both

My First Affordable HDTV Experience

Usually I am prone to spending money new technology toys, but for HDTV was a little hesitant. Believe it or not, my first HDTV was a Polaroid 26-inch model FLM-2632 unit for my bedroom. Not sure of the best size for the living room, I purchased a smaller unit for the bedroom. At a local Circuit City searching the units on display, I discovered the Polaroid model with a picture more impressive than higher priced sets. I was skeptical having a name associated with outdated instant print camera technology. Thinking I would return it within the return policy period, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and try it. Well, after bringing it home along with an a HD- box (for expanded list of HD channels) from my cable company, I was impressed. Today I still own the Polaroid and it has been running without a hitch.
