60hz… Bleh. I want a 120hz tv.

I have a Philips TV and I like it.

Here is a link to the Philips Store http://www.philips-store.com/store/rpeusb2c/en_US/DisplayCategoryProductListPage/parentCategoryID.30003200/categoryID.30003200?origin=google_3694291_330960325_B&resid=idfOdQoBAiMAABrT7KUAAAAd&rests=1256446956967#

Walmart has it for 698 new.

The Philips I once had was terrible. Had multiple troubles and finally replaced it with a superior Sony.

my job is sending me to jamaica in 3 weeks. will this work in a 110v, 50hz outlet?

Just picked up a 42" LG 1080p 120hz for $599 at Fry’s this week and it wasn’t refurbed. Not good deal…

Want to get it, but not a need. Have an old 1080i philips TV.

Does kind of pale in comparison to the new Panny Viera 42" plasma that I got for $555.

Such is life.

DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

Costco has 42" LCD 120hz for $599 NEW with TWO YEAR warranty!!!

I have owned one 42" Philips LCD in the past and I’m never buying it again. Their brand ranks up there with the Die-Next ones.

I bought a very similar Philips 42" off of Woot on July 4th. (Mine was 3603, this is 3704). Though it has since been stolen, it performed well in the 2 months I had it. The brightness was fine and I even hooked my MacBook Pro up to it via a converter cable to get a huge 2nd display on which I played .avi’s. My only complaint with it during my brief ownership was the lack of a feature to edit the “Input” menu; this TV has many inputs (DVI, component, antenna, composite, VGA) and every time you switch from one to another you have to cycle through that long menu of options, most of which you’re likely not using. Most other brands let you edit that menu so only your in-use options appear (and high-end TV’s edit the menu for you.) Otherwise, if you seek a relatively cheap 42" TV, I’d recommend this unit.

id like to see a link or something to confirm this

The 42PFL3704D appears to be a very good TV. Check out this review:

it is only 60 Hz… i would much prefer 120 Hz. the difference is amazing

What! I am checking fry’s website and the cheapest they have is 32" LG 120hz and it’s 899!!! Can u please give me the model #. Maybe I’ll find it.
