Television set Philips 32PHT4504/05 : new reference Direct LED ?

What is the new Philips 32PHT4504/05 worth ?

Today we are going to analyse the Philips 32PHT4504/05, a basic model from Philips. A deeper analysis in order to check what this model is really worth..
First of all, regarding the size of the screen, we are facing a 32 inches.
Simple and about average. It’ll be just right for anybody who wants to watch TV without changing their home into a home cinema.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a HD resolution. From our point of view it is interesting. Given the price, this model appears as a good choice. Not too expensive but anyway it is made with elements which we think will withstand in the long run .
No wow effect on this model, but the correct one. In short, the manufacturer’s goal with this model is to provide a product that meets everyday TV needs.
An analysis will determine if the objective is achieved and if it is relevant to buy it.

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. The design of the Philips 32PHT4504/05 is largely inspired by the other models in the 4500 series.
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.
This new Philips 32PHT4504/05 is rather flat.
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 conclusion, even if design is important, it is not on this point that we judge the 32PHT4504/05. You can put it in your living room ,it will not look out of place.

TV screen presentation Philips 32PHT4504/05

This Philips is trying to stand out from the crowd with a Direct LED screen.
With this new 32PHT4504/05 Philips, the company makes an assumed technological choice.
It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent.

The Philips 32PHT4504/05 is available in the HD resolution.
With a screen size of 32 inches, this 32PHT4504/05 belongs to the series of standard models in its range.
At the same time, we are dealing with a nice display on the screen.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, this television sets itself below its competitors. The game mode is to be avoided, as well as the cinema mode, due to the delay that can occur in the image.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s cheap; with the price that goes with it.

The sound of the Philips 32PHT4504/05

The speakers are of average quality and, therefore, the result does not work miracles on this point. Voices, for TV shows, are well reproduced; but for movie or game mode, you may have saturation and distortion in the sound.
The equipment consists of two speakers and a power output of 5 W.
In other words, the final rendering is fine.
However, we will recommend to add speakers that will allow a better experience.

In short, sound is not the characteristic that will make you buy the 32PHT4504/05 Philips. Low quality; enough choice to listen to the news or let children watch their educational programs.

The Intelligent aspect of the Philips 32PHT4504/05

To smart TV aficionados, keep moving on. This model does not have one. In case you can’t do without it, and this 32PHT4504/05 is your final choice, you will need to add a TV-Box next to it.

Presentation of the connection technology of Philips 32PHT4504/05

Its connectivity is decent for a basic range. You’ll have little choice.
You will need to carefully choose the devices you want to connect to this 32PHT4504/05. The reason? there are few choices in terms of available connectors.

This model has a total of 6 connections, not too bad. Apart from a few devices, you will not be able to connect many elements. Low choice compared to the competition.

You have the following connections at your disposal:
1 USB port, 2 HDMI ports, 2 audio outputs, 1 antenna input

32PHT4504/05 from Philips – The conclusion

In conclusion, the Philips 32PHT4504/05 is correct for simple use. No home cinema; and to be placed in a room less than 15m².
To say the least, it’s complicated for a manufacturer to offer a model without smartTV. There are some among the competition, and at the same price. By choosing this 32PHT4504/05 you know where you stand.
This model uses Direct LED technology for its display. The result is good: the lighting is uniform and the contrast is pleasant.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

From this new Philips we can retain 3 positive points:
the screen size, the sound power, the display frequency.
