Apart from its shortage of subtlety and a few gripes with sound (it's a bit on the shrill side), the Philips has a lot going for it. For a mere £280, an insightful, refined picture and selection...

Sharp picture, bursting with detail
Natural, punchy colours
Impressive SD and HD scaling
Design and remote are bland
Need to buy a separate dongle for wifi
