Buying a new television nowadays is a major investment. Spending what could be a considerable amount of cash should make you think seriously about what is essentially a major domestic investment.

Given the way technology changes it is essential to try and make sure that your purchase is relatively future-proof.

Digital television (DTT) is a telecommunication system for broadcasting and receiving moving pictures and sound by means of digital signals, in contrast to analogue signals used by analogue (traditional) TV. With DTT, viewers are limited to whatever channels the antenna picks up. Signal quality will also vary.

The resolution of the screen is 1366 X 768 and with regards to being HD Ready the answer is yes. The Phillips has 2 scarts and the type and number of Multimedia interfaces the 42PF5421/10 uses is HDMI and 2. The type of Tuner for this TV is Analogue and the Phillips is available from a wide variety of outlets.

As far as overall features are concerned we would give it 6 out 8 out and the final individual verdicts would relate to the ease of use and overall value for money and our scores here would be, 8 out of 10 and 8 out of 10 respectively.

OK it might lack some of the top end features that you get with some other Phillips TV's such as a Digital tuner but makes up for it in the value-for-money stakes.
