More of a heads up than a deal, easily the cheapest 50" 4k tv. I'd have had one myself but just plumped for the 55" sammy. Hopefully ideal for someone, although specs are a little foggy, here's the website manufacturer link philips.co.uk/c-p…ons doesn't specify if it's hdmi 2.0 or not but presumably it is seeing as it's a brand new model. Has built in Netflix too, not sure if it will support the 4k version but here's hoping.

A dummy run by Argos me thinks. The Philips website shows a price of £5000. A curious difference there! On the Argos site the item is not available for delivery. Collection in store 'available' except for the small problem that it is "out of stock" in every store. What's more, if you put a search online for the model, you only get East European sites (Czech, Polish and Russian) returning results for it. Mmh...

In stock in my local Crewe, problem is tho that there are no reviews available andnot available from any other uk supplier. Think the £5k suggested retail is a bit suspect too, the euro prices that i've come across are around £930 ! Think this is a bit risky so gonna vote cold tbh.

expired no stock anywhere, and i just checked crewe and it said oos

There're a couple of new Philips units on sale on Argos, I'm going to hazard a guess and say they're awaiting stock, spec sheet seems very full for it to be a dummy run. Time will tell anyway...

yeah a billy no name brand

No stock at Argos (including Crewe). Philips site states "coming soon." This doesn't appear to be available, so it's a "cold" from me!

u changed the price op ? bit naughty

Banned

what a mess, poor show OP

per Googling : re "brand" remarks : do realise that Philips has itself given up all television production and in recent years sold off its television business to a joint venture with a Hong Kong/China based business TP Vision aka TPV. Then Philips recently sold their remaining shareholding in that business meaning there is no longer direct Philips involvement in "Philips" branded TVs

Got to laugh at people talking about me like I'm a naughty boy, as if I have posted a fake tv to get heat :,) especially when some of them haven't even posted a single deal.

This needs to be un-expired!
Its a great deal and I have managed to order in to my local store?
active 3D, 4k, 50" £849 whats there not to like?
The spec seems pretty good to me. Will let you know if its any good!

You managed to get one then lad?

How much was this when originally listed?

Mines in stock to collect but not sure it's worth the risk.
I already have the 55" Sony 905. Is it worth the upgrade?

I've reserved one too 3 stores near me have them

Anyone know if this does Netflix 4K?

Looks like a good TV on paper, i wouldn't say this is a bargain tho the RRP is £850 on Phillips website philips.co.uk/c-p…view

Available Ashton-under-lyne snipe retail ,which isn't a horrendous journey.

Oh nvm found my answer here flatpanelshd.com/rev…544

No HDMI 2.0, No chance of any 4K from Netflix doesn't make this a good buy

Plenty of stock in the Edinburgh area ready to collect in 6 days

Anyone think the 40" is good value @ £650?

No content and still suffers from motion blur.

Says "reserve it now to collect in 4 days" when I gave it a go. Don't want one however.

What's the point in a 4k tv when the only thing you can see is a 4k still image?. 4k is a bit ott anyway but if you're paying for it then you should have full 4k capability otherwise stick with a standard format.

They are good for 3D stuff:

It's a good point which has been made many times before. Freeview & sky broadcast in 1080i as 1080p takes up too much bandwith. There doesn't seem to be any desire for a 4k disk based system ( bluray is not making any money). Netflix in 4k - well if you've got fibre broadband & like old movies then maybe that's the way to go.

In desperate need of a new tv myself but holding out for a deal on a sony!

I suspect the folk that jumped on the 3D bandwagon are probably the same type that will jump on the 4k one. May be in the future 4k would be justified but at the moment I don't think it is. Not until we have 4k motion pictures and even then it's a little bit ott.

Oled is probably the future, Not 4k.

I agree OLED is the future, but why not 4k OLED sets?

3D for games is brilliant imho, I wish more would use it.

Philips website now says RRP is £850 so no Deal after all which is a shame as I had already reserved at my local in case

Your eyes could barely tell at the correct distance, Why not 8k? when does it stop?.

TV is RRP £850. so I save 1p?

Seems to suggest 3D but no 3D glasses are supplied with the TV.

- Includes 0 pair of 3D glasses.
