The Philips 150MT

If you have read our review on the Philips 180MT , you would be very familiar with the concept of the TFT LCD monitor/television. As such, we would skip with the introductory language, and just go straight to the heart of the matter.

In within the "MT" family of Philip’s hybrid LCD monitor/televisions, there is the 150MT. It comes with all the features you can find in its bigger brother except for a smaller viewable screen area (15-inch). For all else, it remains equal. This means we have the same advantages in aesthetic appeal, ergonomics, television functions, remote control and image quality. In other words, we can credit Philips in its astuteness, in recognizing that, there will be consumers whom might not afford the 180MT , but might prefer the smaller price tag of the 150MT.

Let us not dwell on this any further and dive into the review proper.
