Philips 32pfl7605h

The 32PFL7605H's ingenious remote control combines an elegant, tactile design with a remarkably low button count while managing to handle the vast amount of features at your disposal with ease.

The onscreen menus are similarly well considered; they're not particularly pretty, but are mostly logically organised and it is clear that considerable time and effort has gone into striking the optimal balance direct button feature access and selection from the onscreen menus.

The only downside to the system is the extent to which you need to get involved with the 32PFL7605H's various processing tricks. This is because some of the tools available can make pictures look worse if you set them too high or apply them to the wrong sort of material and Philips still doesn't seem particularly adept at adjusting all the processing options automatically.

In other words, you'll need to revisit the picture set up menus quite regularly if you want to get the best from the 32PFL7605H.
