The Philips 42PF7421D 42 inch LCD HDTV brings several innovations in flat-TV technology such as Pixel Plus 2 and active control with light sensor (dimming backlight) that provides great viewing experience without straining your eyes. This LCD TV has an integrated HDMI interface which creates an uncompressed digital connection from the source directly to the screen, eliminating conversion to an analog signal. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and produces clearer, unblemished picture. Also, this TV has a 8ms response time suitable for full motion videos. In addition to its stunning images, you also get top-end audio with its sound enhancement techniques.
