The Philips 55PP9701 is a rear projection television that is high definition ready. The design of the set is very simple and to some extent can even be said to be modest and yet very sleek. The cabinet is full black and the front side has been given a very clean look. The very thin bezel makes the screen appear to be larger while the set seems to be smaller. The set, at the time of release, was priced at a whopping $4700. Even though the set gives a fantastic performance out of the box, calibration improves the performance of the set to a great extent and offers a picture quality which makes you think that it was worth paying that kind of money for.
Overall, there was not much that the set went wrong with and will not matter much during daily viewing. The reds produced by the set seemed to be a lot more oversaturated. The Philips 55PP9701 was exceptionally good with the high definition broadcasts as well as DVD’s. The remote is a bit of trouble as only a few of the buttons light up and may take a while to learn where all the buttons are. Apart from the minor complaints, the performance of the set is fantastic and does not disappoint at all.
