Is it worth buying it ? This is the question we are going to answer.

The design of the Philips 32PHT4504/05

Cheap doesn’t mean ugly. This could be the rule that has been respected by the designers of Philips.
Nothing has changed in the design of this new model. Philips continues to ride the wave of its design to which we are now accustomed.
Considering the price level the design is good. We perhaps would have liked something more accomplished, but it is, it must be remembered, an entry-level television set.
The 32PHT4504/05 is quite standard, flat.
With its glass surface of 32 inches, has a new type of color. It’s not black and it’s nice to look at.
As far as the base is concerned, there are also things to say. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.In short, the Philips does the right thing on this model. An entry-level TV for which we would have liked more design work. With this Philips 32PHT4504/05, no frills. Basic and that’s almost all. It could even be one of those TV sets you turn on to listen to the news; like a radio.

Even on an entry-level model, the display restitution on this Philips works very well. The image is faithful and allows to benefit from a clear rendering, without distorting the original source.
With this new 32PHT4504/05 Philips, the company makes an assumed technological choice. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. It is one of the best devices in its range.

This model has a Full HD display. And with his 32 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is among the most models in its category.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, you can forget about using this TV in game or home theater mode. image shifts can be important and the accuracy (compared to the original source) is very average.
Even better, thanks to its advanced technology, the screen of this television provides a Full HD quality resolution.
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is average; but what more could be asked of a low-end device.

32PHT4504/05 from Philips – The sound

For those who are not too demanding in terms of quality or sound rendering, this model is interesting. Indeed, the audio system is a little short. Which is normal for this entry-level device.
The television set is equipped with  two loudspeakers and a power output of 5 W.
In other words, the final rendering is just fair. Depending on your requirements, you can add a few speakers to amplify the sound experience.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 32PHT4504/05 Philips, fair is the right word for it.
