True but the £10 you can’t use against present purchase and the screen size lil bit smaller too.

The 6753 has Bluetooth, slightly different selection of HDMI connectors and a narrower stand otherwise it appears to be identical: link

Great TV



had my over 6 months now really is a brilliant tv I don't use the ambilight much as I like it dark when watching films but for casual tv watching its great to have on.


the only issue I have with tv is when I watch any 25 framerate content on dvd Netflix etc the picture stutters and have to switch to game mode picture setting which fixes it even if I leave tv on game mode you still have to change the setting every time you turn it on bit annoying same with gaming like fifa. 24p you can leave it on any picture mode without the stutter.

don't let that put you off as this tv has incredible picture quality
What ade the smart apps like on this. Are there iptv apps
Can you sideload apps like kodi and cyberflix on these?
I know you can on older Philips TVS because they were android
Can't use ambilight in my house as TV stand in corner and not enough flat wall needs flat wall behind for it to work properly

You’d need to go to the 7000 series
Great TV but the software is terrible and laggy. It can take several presses of the remote to get change channels or select an on demand service.

I use mine in Monitor mode. I can't stand the motion enhancement stuff, and even with motion processing turned off, it's still causing judder in the other non-monitor modes.

It's got Freeview Play so all the major catch up services and the inbuilt YouTube/Netflix are fine as well. Only comment is as above, they're slow to respond to the remote.

Only I've since been told the 6753 *doesn't* have Bluetooth so they are virtually identical with the exception of what HDMI ports you get.
Fantastic TV for the money I just picked up two refurbished units for £399.

The OS (I’m coming from LG’s WebOS) is not the best - 3/5, there are better out there. The OS really lets the TV down. No Alexa and no Google Assistant - Philips apparently said that they would be coming to this model.

If you picked up a Firestick 4k on Prime Day then you shouldn’t worry too much about the OS and it’s poor choice of apps.

As mentioned by another member, the buttons on the remote are a bit clunky and you will often find yourself pressing a button twice.

Apart from the negatives above, fantastic TV for the money. Picture is great, no problems with viewing angles. Ambilight is really good too, can’t imagine not having it now.

All in all good value for £379 - 4/5 - think this deal would be extra extra extra hot if this tv ever gets to the £349 pricepoint

Terrible TV with stuttering issues that can't be fixed. Save your cash and buy a better model.
These are the 2018 models with marked with a 3 at the end.


When are the 2019 Philips TVs out? ie models with a 4 at the end eg 6xx4

Were announced in January and we are already half way through the year!

Stuttering issues? I’ve had this TV since Christmas and had zero problems with it. HDR can be a bit funky with Xbox games but nothing that messing with settings can’t fix

What is the refresh rate? I can’t be doing with screen tearing but capped at 60hz to it prevent it during gaming.

Had mine 3 days so I gave it a fair chance, the stuttering issues (well known problem forcing you to use game mode) drove me mad.
HDR was horrible in that everything ended up dark with a grainy picture,
and when using Netflix for 4k the TV couldn't convert the sound format Netflix use to anything that most sound bars support.

Basically, it was cheap for a reason.

Sent it back and got a different set

I also returned mine due to the stuttering issue. Using a Sky Q box it was very noticeable. I don't know the ins and outs of it, but I believe it's related to the refresh rates - there's a thread on AV forums pretty much dedicated to the issue - avforums.com/thr…-17 .

I had this set for 3 weeks. I noticed a stutter and the TV kept trying to play catch-up with the image and rubber banded all over the place. I had every setting and profile under the sun and it happened on every device and the built in apps. The processor these units are shipped with aren't up to the task. It's handicapped and it's a known, well reported issue. I post every time this model number comes up because it's such a heap of junk.

Just went and checked my Amazon order and I was wrong, I have the 6753 not the 6703... Maybe that's what it was then! On mine the only complaint I'd have is that the OS is a bit slow at times depending on what's playing. I think the more expensive models run Android and are supposed to be better, but to be honest 99% of the time I'm playing my Xbox so I don't touch the remote!
Dont really see the point in getting this when RS have the same TV with a 6 year warranty for £20 more?!

The TX48CX400B is a Vestel TV with Panasonic branding. Not nessacarily a bad thing, but you can get new Vestel 4K TV's (Branded as: Toshiba, Techwood, Hitachi, Bush, Digihome, or Medion) for not much more than £150.

Stuttering wouldn't go away in any mode for me hence why I returned it.

Then again, I believe a product should work as is. Out of the box. Which this TV doesn't. If you're happy with putting it in game mode and are happy with your purchase then that's fine. But I bought this TV based on its good reviews online and it's clear to see those reviews were paid for because this specific model isn't up to scratch.
Im nearly put off buying this tv now lol i only want it to watch tv and the odd movie on my firestick... is this stuttering issue while viewing "normal" tv? would i better holding out for one of the other models AO.com had on offer coming back into stock? I guess the ambi light feature is attractive..

Thanks Ian

Ambilight is pretty cool but you can get an even better effect (in my opinion!) by using the correct colour temperature white rear lighting - it’s called bias lighting and is used in movie industry production. Thing is you can get cheap bias lighting strips you can apply to practically any TV. I‘ve done this the results are good.

Ambilight isn't just a static light though, the light intensity and colour changes relative to what is being shown on screen. The effect is not the same.

I know. Ambilight is a bit of a novelty. Very pretty. Great if you enjoy that, and probably helps relieve eyestrain a bit, but it deviates from the objective of bias lighting. You're better off just using a white light. The home theatre boys specifically use 6500K at the D65 point, because that's absolutely neutral to a calibrated screen. If you throw a colour behind the TV, that results in perceived colour shift.

I don't think ambilight is trying to be anything other than a fancy feature.

Either way, ambilight can be set to be static colour and brightness.
