No, these are made by a Hong Kong company called TPV Technology, who bought the Philips TV business outright in 2014.

This has the same Innolux made VA panel found in other similar 50" sets such as the Panasonic 50EX700B and the Samsung 50MU6100/6120 series.

Firstly I agree ringing up is a much more elegant (and hassle free) way of dealing with it.

I don't agree with the rest of your post though. It certainly isn't fraud for a consumer to exercise their statutory rights of return and to avail themselves of a revised offer made by a retailer. Retailers (especially those as large as Argos) are aware of the consumer protection regimes and I dare say are aware that discounts will trigger action from a subset of recent purchasers. The savvy consumer is priced in. It couldn't be further from an honesty-related issue.
No need for any of the hassle in the end. Rang Argos and they're happy to refund the difference. Really excellent Customer Service.
Attention GAMERS!

After picking this TV up today I have done some extensive testing and playing with the settings and initially almost took it back.

The most problems come from the unintuitive user interface, if you set the device connected to the desired HDMI port in the TV settings as console or PC the TV doesn't choose the lowest input lag setting for you and you will be stuck with 100+ milliseconds lag as seen in the following image:
33277819-UyNwq.jpg(The test is done with timer on the webpage displayed on two displays simultaneously and the photo is taken with camera with minimum of 1/320 second shutter speed. The one to the right is PC monitor with known delay of 3ms and we can see that the Philips TV is lagging 110ms behind the monitor. With these setting in game I could pull the controller trigger twice before seeing the shot on screen - truly unplayable!)

Here is what you need to do:
You can still set the HDMI port as console or PC (as someone mentioned here in the comments the HDMI 1 port is limited to 30Hz in native resolution, so use 2 or 3 to be on the safe side) and then in the Settings/Picture/Advanced deselect the input being as PC, this will reveal extra options. Now select Settings/Picture/Picture Style/Game - Done (sort of)


This gives me the following numbers:

33277819-l4nVs.jpg
As you can see not the difference is only 16ms - this is very playable! Not as snappy if you are used to the PC monitor but very playable.

Now just tune the image settings to what you prefer, I suggest to start with removing noise reduction, sharpening, and set the colour preset from cool (default in game mode) to normal.

If anyone can make the text look good on PC output in 1080p with out sacrificing the input lag let me know the settings.

Happy tuning and gaming!

PS, Watching movies is great on this TV and the ambi light thing is very nice addition - great enhancement for the overall experience! (the novelty might wear off soon but so far its awesome!)

Superb price. I have the 43 inch 2-sided Ambilight and can't fault it. Ambilight is a real USP imo.

Thanks for the info. I knew about TPVision but didn't know about the panels they use. Maybe this info will help prevent the usual 'get a Sammy/Panasonic' instead...

Even with the same panels, a Panasonic or Samsung will be 2 different Tv's. It's alot more then panels. Different back lighting, processors etc

Highly rated by What Hi-Fi and, yes, has HDR and streaming services (Amazon, Netflix etc). Just poor viewing angles as the main weak point.

Got mine from very as a bedroom tv and it's great for the price
Good stuff, great price...

Most people will know this already but I've attached a Yeelight strip to the back of my TV for the same effect if you like the idea of the Ambilight but are not in the market for a new TV. Works like a charm...

You sure about that? Isn't the Yeelight the same colour all around? The Philips Ambilight changes according to the edge colour of the picture image, so different colours all round the TV, not the same colour.
i ordered a hisense from tj hughes, a deal from last week, how does this tv compare to hisense?

Ah fair enough. Assumed it was just a coloured backlight... My bad...
Is it Android

No, it uses an alternative Linux based OS, but it does have support for Amazon, Netflix, Youtube, Iplayer, ITV Hub, All4, Demand5, UKTV Player and Rakuten. Possibly others, thats all I could find on reviews/official site.
Heat for the price. So. E may disagree... But hopefully we will see a 4k hdr with 3d (no glasses) with amberlight in the near distant future. My favourite TV was the Philips aurea and it looked amazing in its day. Still a fan of 3d.... Let's face it, big films still come out in imax 3d..... So in my opinion it's not dead. Like VR.... It's a great addition.
Heat for the TV and a great affordable price.
Literally bought this for £459 the day before yesterday. Short of returning and re-buying it (which I could do), anyone know if Argos will refund the difference?

Sorry mate, I had this with a laptop before Xmas.....re-bought, and returned was only way bit of hassle but worth £50
Quick Q - will this TV support amazon video in 4K / HDR please?

I was thinking of this. Buying in store X, returning to store Y on original receipt. Cheeky but nothing untoward I don't think? Do you think the TVs themselves are individually barcoded, or as long as it's unused and boxed, it's fine?

You'll be fine, no serial number is recorded on the stock at point of sale, it's purely X amount of stocked item at point of sale, rather than seriel number XXXXX was sold from X stock at this time.

Nobody has had issues refunding a sealed product, it's simply change of mind. Going back later/different store is always sensible.
No need for any of the hassle in the end. Rang Argos and they're happy to refund the difference. Really excellent Customer Service.
Always had a soft spot for Philips TVs.

They seemed to have got their act together now.

Heat!
Bought the Bravia 49 8004 the other day for £429 but tempted to change to this for Ambilight.

Any opinions on whether Bravia better overall as usual price is higher.

Thanks

How do you find the TV please mate? Any good? Have one reserved
Anyone know the input lag time on this model had a look and can't find any info,i looked at another Philips set last week and it had a horrendous input lag time.
33267034-GhxHf.jpg
47 ordered... Yo Argos, where's my commission?

I'm hoping that one day I find a 55" hot deal that I can take advantage of, I can't justify the cost of a new TV when I only gain 4"

There's actually some good offers to be had on this as well at Argos, bundled with a Samsung HW-J250 soundbar for an extra £54.99, or a Samsung HW-K335 bar + woofer for £89.99.
If the viewing angle sucks can anyone recommend a reasonably priced adjustable wall bracket?

From the WhatHiFi review:
"Gamers will also appreciate the Philips' input lag of around 27ms and, if they're playing on an HDR console, its punch and vibrancy."
