Philips really put on a show this year at CES, and their announcement is huge! There are so many new products announced here, it hard to keep up. Let’s start with the HDTV range. We have the 4000, the 5000 and the 6000 series of LCD TVs.
The 4000 series is their mid-range LCD offering, but at the bottom of the feature list for this release set. The 4000 series comes in 40, 46 and 55 inches, and include NetTV and MediaConnect for wireless networking with your PC’s media collection. With NetTV, you’ll get access to FilmFresh, Netflix, Blockbuster and Vudu. The prices, in ascending order of sizes are $749, $999 and $1499. You can also find smaller versions of the 4000 series, in 19, 22 and 32 inches, at $199, $249 and $449 respectively. The little ones won’t feature NetTV and MediaConnect, however.
One step higher is the 5000 series. They ship in the same 40, 46 and 55” sizes, but add Pixel Precise HD processing engine and a 120Hz refresh rate. the 5000 series will retail at $679, $899 and $1099 respectively.
And if you want something more, there’s the LED 6000 series. This takes the 5000 series, and adds 3D support. The price tags on these will be $999 for the 40”, $1299 for 46” and $1699 for the 55”.
Philips also released five new home theater setups, all with full 3D support. They all have built in NetTV and MediaConnect, with the top of the line sets featuring DNLA and Wireless rear speakers. These will cost you anywhere between $269 and $449.
If you’re not looking for a whole home theater system, then you can opt in for just a 3D BluRay deck. Three different models retail between $169 and $219. The most expensive one will also feature MediaConnect and NetTV.
So if you want a philips TV this year, you’ve got tons of choices to choose from.
