This model is the 55'' version of the 40'' TV that we tested in our labs, the Philips 40PFL6606H.

Everything we said in the original article holds true--the only thing that's different is the size!

The only exception is that some manufacturers fit different sized televisions with panels from different sources.  In that case, our comments are only valid for the panel that we originally tested.  Contrast, black levels, colour handling and ghosting are all subject to change from one panel to another.

Manufacturers who do fit the same panel in all of the TVs in a range can expect the same results across the whole range.  The only factor which could be prone to slight variation is the brightness, producing slightly different contrast.  According to our own tests, and assurances from manufacturers, the results of one TV can accurately be applied to others in the range.


  • Great contrast ratio: 2180:1
  • Matte finish doesn't suffer from reflections
  • Media player supports NTFS
  • Low energy consumption: 85 W
  • Good quality audio


  • Colour reproduction isn't very accurate: average deltaE: 3.9
  • Narrow viewing angles: 0.7/5
  • Media player doesn't support many video formats


The PFL6006 combines good quality audio with low energy consumption. It's just a shame the picture quality could be better: Philips has once again produced a TV that will satisfy the general public but which won't necessarily thrill Home Cinema fans.
