Philips 32PFS4132/12 : a middle range Direct LED television set

Philips 32PFS4132/12 : the new Full HD

Today we are going to analyse the Philips 32PFS4132/12, a mid-range television from Philips. An review to check the capacities of this model.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 31.5 inches.
It is a small model. It will be more complicated for you to watch films or matches with all tour friends around.
Beside, this television is equipped with a Full HD resolution.  Even if it is in a mid-range position, it offers interesting specifications, partly justifying its price.
Although placed in the middle of the range, the manufacturer has tried to offer the viewer an image quality that allows an immersion.
We will see in detail if their objective is reached.

TV design presentation Philips 32PFS4132/12

The Philips 32PFS4132/12 appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
A good overall score for this TV; it corresponds to design in the spirit of the times. A quality of materials and a visual aspect that does not make you insensitive.
This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

TV screen presentation Philips 32PFS4132/12

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 use of LEDs provides an excellent image. 
This model has a Full HD display. With a screen size of 31.5 inches, this 32PFS4132/12 is at the bottom of its range.Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Full HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

32PFS4132/12 from Philips – The sound

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 32PFS4132/12 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 television set is equipped with  two speakers and a power output of 8 W.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 32PFS4132/12 Philips, it is the word correct that comes out.

Presentation of the Smart TV part of the TV set Philips 32PFS4132/12

Unfortunately on this model there is no smart TV. However, it can be considered as good news; indeed, you should have paid more for this TV set for a use that some of you would not have had. For the others, all you have to do is buy a TV-Box.

The connection system of the Philips 32PFS4132/12

As for the connectivity aspect on Philips 32PFS4132/12, it provides you with sufficient elements.
You will need to carefully choose the devices you want to connect to this 32PFS4132/12. The reason? there are few choices in terms of available connectors.

This model has a total of 7 connections, not too bad. Not all of your devices will be able to be connected. A difficult choice is on the way.

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

32PFS4132/12 from Philips – The conclusion

With the intention of making a difference this new 32PFS4132/12 Philips intends to make a difference. Well thought out and well finished. This mid-range is a wise choice.
Negative point on this 32PFS4132/12 is the absence of smart tv. It’s surprising in this day and age. But since we’re in a low-end product, why not.
With its Direct LED panel, this TV is doing better than average. The lighting is uniform.
Besides that, you have a TV set whose big advantage is its very competitive price. At this level, you have a TV that displays all your video sources correctly and allows you to have a very well defined picture in all circumstances.

Finally, we will note all the positive points that are to be added to the credit of this television set. Here are 3 that I find interesting:
the sound power, the display frequency, the screen size.
