Very tempted by this! Anybody have experience with this tv or similar? Would it be fine for gaming and as a bedroom TV?

this deal has come up several times before, if you search for it will find extensive notes.

its a good cheap hdr set - slow to respond from remote, very average sound, poor upscaling of tv signal, images look soft and the sharpness setting just adds other issues however does seem to work very well as a gaming monitor, the lag isn't that bad and quality images 1080p and above look punchy, vibrant and have a lot of detail. I hadn't noticed any light bleed on mine under normal conditions although playing in dark have noticed 1 small bright spot when gaming in hdr. for the price I actually thought the black levels are pretty good, I have seen a lot worse.

can load a number of apps with it being an android set, for the money would recommend it but don't expect anything exceptional

So for someone that's going to use it as a PC monitor for day to day use with 1080p/4k video via download/Netflix , Kodi and Xbox One/PS4 with no normal TV/SD content this gets the thumbs up?

Currently using an LG 42LM615T with no problems but the Ambilight seems like a nice extra and I've fancied trying 4K out for a little while. Seems like for the price it's a steal.

I have it in my office connected to an xbox one and ps4 and have been quite pleased with its gaming performance - there is also a computer setting as well as a gaming setting but not tried it with a computer - with hdr on for gaming it also turn on image smoothing which you cant turn off but not noticed any issues - I have not had chance to mess with other settings using hdr but with gaming turned off but would expect it to increase the lag

the set does seem to require a wired connection to get the best from the download services, the tv does struggle to populate thumbnails but I know my way around them well so can find what I want without images. my advice would be to use the apps on the s4/xbox instead

Sounds like pretty much what I'm after then, wired is fine also as it's going to be right next to the router but obviously with it also being connected to a PC I don't need the smart functions too much.

I bought the 49 inch version of this TV after having an 8 year old Sony bravia this is a brilliant TV for the money. I watched star wars on it last night and the ambilight was awesome although had to tweak it between different settings to suit me. also I would recommend searching for correct picture settings on YouTube as out of the box the picture is too colourful. Haven't tried any hdr content as it is hard to come by at the moment. If someone wants a good smart TV that can do 4k and has nice touches such as ambilight I would recommend. If you are looking for a 10 bit panel with full hdr compatibility look for a uhd premium TV which will be starting at over £1000.

this could be a winner for my dad.....he's elderly and not very well. Want something a bit future proof as he's using a crt set .....or do I wait for black Friday? ?????

I bought this on the previous deal at £341.99 back in October. Great value, good picture, I find the remote and android is quite responsive and loaded Kodi. Sound is poor and I've connected Harmon Kardon speaker. The only downside is that I have to go into sound settings to control the volume as they're connected as headphones. I can take or leave the ambilight.

Used below to get decent picture settings.

It's funny how one hit 1600+ and this is stuck at 80+
There is a video on YouTube for the 6501 settings which explains what they are, Philips call things differently so for example backlight is contrast etc bit annoying if used to other brands

Picked this up from my local Argos today, massively impressed with the picture quality, and app features, however the ambilight feature is truly stunning, sets the mood for the whole room and certainly adds to any gaming or tv watching experience! For this price, I highly recommend for anybody looking for a solid 4k tv at a budget

This or Sony Bravia KDL48WD653 48" ??

Hi there, it says it only had bbc iplayer, can you get itv player and 4od etc on this as well?

Also dont forget £10 voucher as well.

Does it have a satellite port? The images on the website show that it does, however I can't see it listed.

​They're totally different TVs. Very difficult to advise really

Got it home and set up and followed the pic settings listed on here and watching Robinson Crusoe with the kids through kodi was excellent.. However watching footy it is really blurry when panned out (so most of the game) but fine when close up... Any tips?

​The football on KODI was blurry or the TV source?

Me again just plugged sound bar into optical out and not getting any sound coming out the sound bar... Can't see anything obvious in settings that should be stopping it working... Any help appreciated

The football was blurry on itv through the digital tuner on the TV. Kodi was great watching Robinson Crusoe

The tvs not the brightest so don't expect it to be as good as a 1000nit tv but was added detail/punchier images on uncharted 4 normal ps4 but with hdr turned on

Itv or itv hd? The upscaler is not the best in these sets, Dave which is low quality channel ghosts a little if you look closely at logo can see 3, the better quality channels improve a little and is not bad. Make sure Sharpness no higher than 3 or 4 and poss even off although I find images to soft with none, go into advanced menu, Sharpness and turn all off. I have a humax 4000t that should upscale and output in 4k but they stuffed it up with firmware update, promised to be fixed on 21St so going to see if that does better job of upscaling

The optical plugs in until it clicks sometime have to use a little pressure, make sure you are plugging in right way round it's shaped, once plugged in to tv look at the end going to soundbar should be able to see red light, if not, not plugged in to tv properly, should then just work but will have its own volume control not the TV remote

At least JPs happy tonight

Oh yes, great deal!! We bought the 49inch Phillips ambilight a few weeks ago and it I'd definitely the best TV we have had!! The picture is amazingly clear and 4k is amazing!! The lights changing when watching a film or documentary or even the kids cartoons is beautiful!! Just decorated our living room and the ambilight just give you a feeling of warmth in the room, great deal!!
