watching movie is like watching on a 70" TV but without borders

With free 5 year TV guarantee.

The Philips 56PFL9954 21:9 Cinema TV brings the cinema screen home!

In what is possibly the biggest development in TVs since widescreen, the Philips 56PFL9954 is the first commercially available TV with a genuine, cinema scale TV screen. The 21:9 aspect is, for the first time on a TV, to the exact scale of a cinema screen. This doesn't just mean an engaging wide picture but also the complete absence of those annoying black bars that blight most films. OK, so the screen isn't quite as big as most cinemas, but 56 inches is certainly big enough to give a genuine cinema experience in most living rooms. With all the excitement about the screen size and shape it would have been easy to have forgotten about the quality. Fortunately, that's not what Philips has done.

Key to the fantastic picture quality is Philips's Ambilight Spectra 3. This advanced ambient lightening system draws you in to the picture and makes it more comfortable to watch TV. In addition to 1080p HD Ready and 200Hz technology, this Philips 56 inch LCD TV also boasts the unique Philips technology of Perfect Pixel HD. Building on Philips's award-winning Pixel Plus, Perfect Pixel HD creates super-sharp definition and ultra-low noise. Perfect Natural Motion makes film replay a smooth, fluid process. Furthermore, with a, class-leading, response time of just 1ms, the Philips 56PFL9954 is one of the fastest responding TVs in its class. Factor in the astonishing contrast ratio of 80,000:1 and its clear to see that this 21:9 Philips TV is something very special indeed.

With a cinema sized screen you really need a cinema sized sound system to go with it. As ever, we'd always recommend using a TV of this size and quality with a separate home-cinema system. Having said that, considering the super-slim frame, this Philips 56 inch Ambilight TV is impressive. BBE sound enhancement and a powerful 2x15 watts amp give a more spacious sound with greater depth and width than is sometimes the case with large TVs.

Just when you think the Philips can't possibly offer any more, it responds with Net TV. As the name suggests, Net TV gives you access to a range of entertainment on the web: simply connect the 56PFL9945 to your home network via a LAN connection. NET TV also allows you to stream videos and pictures from your PC to TV. As you'd expect from this luxury TV, all the sockets you could possibly need are included. No fewer than five (one side-mounted) HDMI sockets cater for your High Definition sources. A USB socket lets you play back photos and music through the TV from memory storage devices. For other sources the twin SCART sockets, PC input, S-Video and component sockets prove comprehensive enough for any system. An added benefit is the coaxial digital output; perfect for connecting the TV to your home cinema system.

For home cinema to really mean home cinema, the Philips 56PFL9954 gets closer than ever before. Expand your horizons today!

Please note. Stand is an optional extra.

i know ps3 & 360 aren't even true 1080p. So its best to play with PC games. i wonder if PC games support 2560x1080 resolution
#12
Please view this before buying it.

Last time I saw this was in M&S in London Colney, the viewing angles were not impressive, and also alot of films will have black bars on the side considering the extreme aspect ratio of this.
#13
I am giving this some serious thought at this price, I have been looking at getting a 3D tv but so far none of them are up to scratch (crosstalk problems etc). I am thinking that I could get this tv and buy a 3D tv in a couple of years when the technology has improved.

I''ve been using RS for over a decade, I tend to take up their 5 year warranty, used it three times, each time instant new placement or better from stock right there, right then, no claims, no long forms, no hassle, no refurbs, no complaints, instant service.

If it's on a credit card you have Section75 Protection.

Simples.

(_;)At the rate its falling it will be £500 in a month.
#16
I am seriously tempted to get this for my bedroom, I know alot of people are being sarcastic and wanting one for the bathroom etc but this would be great in my room! I watch mainly movies from my PC on my 32" LCD was planning to get a 40" Sony for around £600 but this along with the ambilight will amazing especially given the fact I have a 14 foot wide wall right opposite my bed.

My only gripe would be how HD tv looks ie sky or virgin im assuming instead of top of bottom black bars you will get left and right bars which im hoping doesnt leave any screen burn or ghosting (not sure of the correct term)
#17
imagine pc version of MW2 on this @ max resolution :)

The Xbox 360 and PS3 can do and both are true native 1080p.

"Key to the fantastic picture quality is Philips's Ambilight Spectra 3. This advanced ambient lightening system draws you in to the picture and makes it more comfortable to watch TV"

Beg to differ.....went round to a friends house to watch a film and he had this "ambient light" system.....after 10 minutes i asked him if he could turn the annoying lighting around the TV cos 1)it was doing my head in and 2) i couldnt concentrate on the film - Im absolutely GOBSMACKED that they kept this gimmick and implemented it again!!! AWFUL !!!
#22
when will people learn that TV's are not as good as dedicated monitors in terms of game performace and as a display overall.
#23
so because you dont like it they should can it?//?,if you dont like it turn it off,how hard is that

i personally love it on dynamic setting when watching horror movies ,it really adds to the atmosphere,they kept it as as GOBSMACKED as you may be a lot of people like it

and richer sounds are one of the best companys around for customer service from my experiance

maybe they never will
#25
Damn - that's a nice display.

But it's LCD so it's kind of already dated.
LED has come to market & 3D has just arrived.
Looks like the paper thin 3D OLED by Sony will be the next step forward.

But I guess if you just keep waiting, that's all you'll end up doing... waiting.

Ummm,

98% of games are not native 1080p.
The vast majority are 720p
Quite a few are 640p
& rarely 576p

The PS3 & XBOX 360 can't handle native 1080p on complex games.

I don't think anyone was saying they wanted one for their bathroom I think they meant spend the money on this instead of a new bathroom.

LED is still LCD technology....also OLED will still be a few years away because of the expense and I highly doubt the first models will be paper thin ones they will probably be a 1mm or 2 thick

Don't worry about it, he's the personification of pedanticism from my experience on other forums.
#32
Wow.. Just wow... If I had the money, I'd buy it in an instant, don't have that much to blow on a TV at the moment though :(
#33
This is great if you don't mind watching 99% of all TV/consoles with wide black bars at either side.

Thanks K1LLER HORET.

alot of people who havnt played a PC version of these games so I guess they'll never find what real 1080p games look like. PS3 is very good @ what it can handle for a machine which only has 256MB main & 256 video memory (vs pc's 3gb ram & 512-2gb graphics memory)so I giv it credit. I actually play the ps3 version of MW2 as most my mates play that online & only a handful have the PC version. i actually sold my PC as it consumes too much power but do miss it alot (may think of i7 next :p )

after playing the PC version @ 1080p & 1920x1200 resolusion, when i moved to ps3 version graphics looked like 720p upscaled. but then i say ps3 only has 512MB total memory

dont belive me then find a geeky friend & ask to see their PC or RIG as they call it & you'll see real 1080p
#35
DO WANT!

Seriously tempted, but bought a new TV last year so can't really justify it.
#36
OMG! Heat added. That is real home cinema!
#37
Not a bad price for this, but it is super niche - I can't imagine playing any games at its native resolution and aspect ratio though, its just way too wide for that. If you had the cash it would be really nice as a dedicated, cinema-aspect film TV :).

As I have said. The PS3 and Xbox 360 can and do real native 1080p.

Plus you look a bit sad playing games in front of a PC screen to be honest
#40
But what do 4/3 images look like on it? very small in the middle I imagine?

I don't like viewing 4/3 in stretch-vision.
