Our conclusion on the Philips 32PFS4132/12

Finally, this new Philips 32PFS4132/12 is a television set that can go anywhere; it can meet the majority of needs.
The choice of Philips not to include a smart TV system in this 32PFS4132/12 seems a shame to us. In our opinion, many will choose another model among the competitors in this range, that will have an operating system.
The Direct LED screen improves the overall image rendering and provides greater uniformity.
In parallel, it will be necessary to add an important parameter: the price. You have here a television set whose price is very competitive compared to its competitors. In other words, including your final decision, you will have to take into account the fact that this is a television set that displays all your video sources correctly and allows you to have a very well defined image 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.
