What's the Ambilight do these days?

I remember it getting very positive press from the usual tech media outlets 10 years ago but Philips seem to have disappeared off the televison radar since then.

Could be tempted to get one of these for the bedroom, got a feeling Mrs Loyal will love it

"This flat panel offers a suitably sharp UHD picture, but it’s hardly the brightest TV on the show floor. As a result, I’d advise you to manage those HDR expectations right now."

This isn't unique to the Phillips. There are some excellent Sony TVs with the same issue. If you already have a good plasma (for example) then the difference between 1080 and 4k isn't that great. But if your 4k screen does HDR well then the wide range of colours and detailed highlights will be the defining feature separating the two display technologies. It's why every TV says HDR.

Again this doesn't mean it is a bad TV just like the Sony XE series it can be a great TV but not giving you the true HDR experience.

I have an 8 year old Panny FHD plasma, funnily enough. The ruddy thing just won't die! but I want a new TV so this is going in the bedroom, oh yes!

Yes, if you want Ambilight (and i do) Philips TVs seem to be the only avenue open to us. The only downside is they are not widely available here and certainly not at John Lewis or I would be requesting a price match to get the 5 year warranty. Incidentally, the standard Philips warranty is better than most (2 years).

Have a little Google before getting from Argos because I seem to have found it cheaper at quite a few retailers.

I meant more as in technical function, like is it still projecting pastille colours up on the wall behind the set in sync with what you're watching at any given time?

You sure that's not the 6162 non-Ambilight model? Looks like Ao.com have matched the argos price as it was 409 quid earlier. But I can get 5% cash back at Argos with my USDAW pre-paid card plus the Quidco...

Can the Ambi lights be controlled (and work together) with a Philips Hue hub and lamps or is it a totally different system?

I've never heard of ambilight or seen integration with lamps before, so hukd has educated me again. Impressive, but I think it would drive me mad to have the lights changing all the time. Great for those who like it though.

I've been watching this for the past week and also looking at other pricing. Where did you find it cheaper and you sure it not the 43PUS6162 model which is non-ambi light and not HDR?
Only time I seen this cheaper (kinda) was on Saturday and Sunday where Argos had it at £429.99 but Argos Ebay was listing it at this price, nearly went for it on Sunday with the 10% Ebay Quidco also but still not made my own mind up. Fancied the Samsung Curved panel until I noticed no headphone socket but found simple way around using a £10 DAC to add the headphone socket. Seriously limited choice if like myself require a centre stand and preferably a headphone socket (sounds like I on an iPhone Vs Android comment!).

The model that was cheaper was definitely the 6162 (non-Ambilight). Very confusing model naming, isn't it? I too have been watching this TV for a while and this is the cheapest price it has been, but like you say they sold JUST TEN of this model on Argos ebay for 399 on Saturday.

Edit: they've relisted one at 399

Definitely not sure hence I said 'seem' because I assumed the same model number would all be Ambilight but that appears not to be the case

I am quite tempted by this for our bedroom and even more so by that Very deal @seaniboy has mentioned for the 50 incher.

I am just not sure if she'll be in to it, it will be very much Marmite kind of thing she'll either love it or despise it, you can turn the Ambilight off though can't ya?

As my reply to @bellboys alluded to, I'm not up to speed on what these Philips sets have and don't have because the model seems to be the same.

I would like a 4K HDR telly in the bedroom and I think the missus would be in to the Ambilight function so even though I've never been a Philips fan for a whole host reasons at this sort of money I can go with the flow and bend the plastic

Yes, Ambilight can definitely be turned off. Thing is this seems a pretty capable 4K TV in its own right with the added attraction of a tech that no other TV manufacturer can offer (Ambilight).

Lol, in same boat with the price of it, caught myself out looking, playing "spot the difference". Seems 61xx series no light, 62xx series light, but even then be careful with the exclusion of HDR also with some of the model numbers. Also seems to be different types of ambilight also, 2 sided (6xxx series),3 sided (7xxx series also 7 and above adds Android OS) and 4 sided (8xxx/9xxx series).Been researching quite abit ahead of this week knowing I was looking a telly for the bedroom, seen some youtube demo's of the ambilight and it appears within the settings part purely for the ambilight, one option is to turn it off totally if needed.

Dark? Not really ambilight helps plus it's not far off the nits of most OLED screens

One of the Argos reviews says it suffers from terrible input lag making it impossible to play fast games on. I googled it and there is a discussion on the Phillips site. Just wanted to know from the hukd tv critics if this is the case or if something else is going on like those people got dud panels?

I'd like to know about input lag too.

Anyone know if this supports full 4:4:4 chroma? Looking for a 40"ish 4k set to use as a dual purpose Monitor and TV. Thanks
