Philips Wi-Fi LCD TV

This site has moved to

There is nothing special about 23" Philips 23iF9946 LCD TV except of one simple and great- a 802.11g that allows to stream audio and video from internet and a connected computer. The software, or I should say the firmware is such that you can browse acceptable files stored on a remote machine. The list of formats understood by 23iF9946 is very extensive: MP3, MP3 Pro, PCM, Wave, MPEG1, 2 + 4, DivX, XviD, JPEG, GIF, BMP and PNG. And to top this off, there is a FM tuner in case you miss your local stations. The resolution of the panel is WXGA ( 1280x768 ), with 400:1 contrast ratio and 450cd/m2 peak brightness.
Being an all-in-one device, I would think of it as a student's HDTV (although it does not come cheap at £1499.95 or $2600). Be it a $1000 less, there would be no substitute for a crammed dorm room.
