Well this is my fifth Philips TV over the years. The Philips 28 PW 6517 may not be the prettiest on the market, but as all my previous Philips TV have been reliable and functional, after a long trail round the shops we finally came back to what we knew.
I have to say for the features, not the cheapest, but also not the most expensive, like all in its class quite bulky, definitely meant for the corner of the room. The flat tube produces a high quality picture, although enthusiasts may pick fault, I found the picture excellent after adjusting it to my personal taste.
The onboard sound is good, Dolby and all, if you like to watch DVDs then you may want to think about additional surround sound/cinema system.
One criticism, and I have seen this with a few of my previous "tellys" from this manufacturer, is the on/off switch is not the most positive. I think I've switched it on, but the switch has not engaged, and you need to press it again, but you get use to the feel after a while. I have to add the switch has never failed.

A good family telly which does not stand out from the crowd in looks, but if my previous TVs from Philips are anything to go by, I am sure will give some good honest service

Replacement Remote Control for Philips 28 PW9617C (batteries included)

This Classic® remote control is a replacement which will operate ALL the functions of the ... more

original Philips 28 PW9617C remote. It does not
need any form of programming - just insert
batteries and it is ready to use.The Classic®
range of remote controls has been a popular choice
of the professional TV servicing industry across
Europe for over a decade. Unlike more generic
replacements, each individual Classic® remote
control is custom-designed to operate EVERY
function of the original remote that they replace.
The case style itself has been designed for
sturdiness and reliability, whilst the buttons and
text are optimised for visibility and ease of use.
To meet the demands of the servicing industry, the
materials and components used within the remote
are carefully specified to produce a thoroughly
reliable product.Usage notes: As a replacement for
the Philips 28 PW9617C remote, the position of
some buttons may be different to the original
remote control. Where one Classic® remote control
replaces a handful of original remote controls,
some with more features than others, there may be
one or two buttons which in some cases are
redundant. This remote control is an economic,
functional replacement (i.e. not a Philips branded
original remote control). Please view the product
image to see the part which will be supplied.
