The firm Philips is deciding today to launch a new mid-range model with its 32PFS5603/12.

TV screen presentation Philips 32PFS5603/12

The Philips has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
With this new model, Philips confirms one of its technological choices. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. 
The Philips 32PFS5603/12 is available in the Full HD resolution. And with his 32 inches, he’s in a series of TVs that is positioned in the range of small models.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, the television’s fluidity is at the top of its range.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Full HD quality picture .
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is interesting and effective; it is a mid-range TV that is worth the detour.

The sound of the Philips 32PFS5603/12

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the 32PFS5603/12 still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
The equipment consists of  two speakers for a sound power of 8 W.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.
