This or the Philips 50PUS6703?

I'm having the same dilemma.

I'm having the same dilemma.


I've seen the Hisense and was really impressed by it, but the video of the Philips TV showing Star Wars with the light saber duel was incredible. I'm edging towards the Phillips because something tells me it handles fast moving content better, just hoping someone can confirm that.

I'd definitely go for the RS version if it's identical, with that guarantee it's a no brainer.
I can't really find any in-depth reviews on this.

I’ve never had a had a Philips panel last more than about 2 years, not sure how others find reliability but could be the reason that Philips aren’t really competing at the higher end of the market

I have no experience with Hisense but with the RS guarantee your covered regardless
Edited by: "imthebest" 21st Aug 2018
Thanks for voting hot. Although Richer Sounds is cheaper and has a better guarantee, I can't go with it because I have an argos product card with £300 that I need to use within the next few weeks.

So can anyone recommend a 50+ inch argos tv within a budget of £450?
Whats difference in this and the Hisense H50N5300 on ebay/argos for £329

Just realised the RS one is 50hz panel, Argos one is 60hz. Think this might be the difference in the model numbers.

I guarantee you that both versions are 50hz native.

I got the Samsung 55" 6400 for this price and it's a world apart. And it was from John Lewis, so a 5 year warranty.
I had a similar model of Hisense and they were a nightmare to deal with. Great picture but this thing was crashing nighty.

Sorry, what does that mean? I was just reading Argos spec in the OP and it said 60hz?

Thanks, HG. Would this flaky OS be an issue if you're just plugging in a sky box / Virgin / Humax or similar or would this take the OS out of the equation?

I wouldn’t worry about any of this - this TV (like almost all other modern TVs ) is compatible with 50Hz PAL (European) & 60Hz NTSC (American) standards.

It just done it randomly for me. YouTube was especially bad and it would just freeze. Their tech support could only suggest downgrading the firmware. Then upgrading. 4 times. Then they didn't know what to do.
@honest_geezer - Can you suggest a different TV in argos within this price bracket?
I think if you plug in any of a Sky Box / Humax / Virgin Tivo / Amazon TV stick etc. you would bypass the TVs own OS, in effect just using it as a monitor, and the software / OS on these boxes are all pretty good.This would mean you wouldn't have to worry so much about a flaky OS making this / the Richer Sounds version as a pretty awesome deal for a 50 inch TV.

Well depending if you could stretch to £499 and you could find anywhere with stock this is the one I’d personally go for.

This or the Philips 50PUS6703?


Bargainz99921/08/2018 21:53

I'm having the same dilemma.


FWIW, I bought the Philips 50PUS6703 last week via Argos on eBay £50 off day. I'm really impressed with the picture quality, it looks great, black levels are as good as the plasma it was replacing and colours look excellent, and I genuinely love the ambilight, really fun but also immersive once you stop focussing on it. My only real complaint is the menu system, I have a Logitech Harmony but there is no IR signal you can send to switch directly from HDMI 1 to 2, you have to press Source -> and then select from a menu. The menu itself is fine at best, sometimes takes 6 or so seconds to respond, really annoying. If you use one input or regular TV channels I think you'd be fine (those you can change by number, just not other sources). Also, don't expect real HDR from either of these screens or anything in this price range, they can accept the signal but they don't go bright enough to actually display it properly. I'm happy with the Philips and it's a brand I trust (and maybe one day I'll buy Philips Hue bulbs and sync them with the ambilight...!)

Thanks for your feedback chinery. Sounds like a great TV. Can the ambilight be turned off?

I would be happy to buy from Argos Ebay, but unfortunately the £300 card can only be used either instore or on their website.

Yes you can turn off the ambilight completely, or tweak it to your liking (less bright, less saturation).

I haven't seen the Hisense and can't find any reviews on tech sites, but the panels look comparable from the specs, the only thing is that the brightness isn't listed for the Hisense (but the Philips is not bright on paper, so I'd be surprised if it was a lot dimmer). You might be able to find a shop somewhere that has a demo unit? Good luck!
Bargainz9995 h, 40 m ago

I have the 55N5500 and have not found the OS to be flaky at all. It's basic but works fine all the smart apps are there, including all catch up TV channels, Netflix, Amazon Video and Smart IPTV. The remote even has buttons for Freeview Play, Netflix, Amazon Video and YouTube which is an inspired touch. My TV hasn't crashed once in the 3 months I've had it. Perhaps the OP received a defective unit.
You also receive a 2 year manufacturer warranty with all their TV's.
