Almost 5 years ago I had some discussions with +Christian Meder
about buying a new TV.
He told me of the great tv from #philips
which have the so-called ambilight feature. It doesn't took really long for the decision to buy a philips tv :-).
But at that time I don't wanted to invest 1800€ for a 42" tv with ambilight. So it was only a 42" tv without #ambilight
but 700€ heaper.
At this time, you had to build the intelligence by yourself if you would like to have a smart tv (#linux box with vdr, xbmc and so on).
This christmas my grandpa get my old tv... which means I need a new one :).
After looking to some samsung and lg tv I had a closer look to the philips models.....and ordered a new philips 47PFL7008k...of course now with ambilight :) and for 1000€. What should I say?It's absolut amazing.
I really like the new one (of course it is a smart tv which has wifi, apps, an integrated camera for skype, integrated tuner, recording functionality and so on) and I really love ambilight.
So everything which I've tried the last 5 years to build around my old philips tv is now included, wonderful.
And if I will sell all the old stuff which I don't need anymore, I think I will get at least 300€.
...I think this was a good invest and therefore a good decision :)
