Philips‘ 42PFL9903D is part of the company’s Aurea II line of LCD TVs. The 42PFL9903D sports a 42″ TFT LCD with a pixel format of 1920 x 1080. The second-generation Aurea II technology involves the Ambilight technology that does a good job of integrating the frame into the picture viewing experience.
The chassis itself has a thinner bezel and curved corners. The bezel is also semi-transparent to make the Ambilight effect more, well, effective. The response time is an ultra-fast 2ms and the dynamic contrast ratio of 30,000:1 should yield some good colors. The price is on the high side but the Ambilight technology does provide a very unique, and on the whole a positive, experience.
