Viewing angles?


Not sure, maybe google? Or walk into a Costco and shout “VIEWING ANGLES?!” at the nearest employee?

Thank you, amended the deal to reflect.
This has had decent reviews and looks good for the price. However, I would be concerned that it only has one HDMI 2.0 input, with the other two being 1.4. That really limits your sources for decent 4K viewing. It's bad enough that so many TVs in this price range only include two 2.0 inputs but one is ridiculous.

Really hard to compare review scores like that though when they're so similar, unless they're by the same people. Better to check specifications when reviews for both are good.

Specs show they're basically identical.

Do they have it instore on display?
Anyone got info on the input lag?
For anyone that does not have a Costco account and wants this TV, I have just called Richersounds and price matched then using this post and they accepted it and I got 5 year warranty and free delivery and also got an extra £10 knocked off so new total for the TV is £369 delivered.
Make sure you tell them about the BLACKFRIDY15 to get the price down "good luck".

Well played!
Glowing review, excellent price, money in my pocket, richer sounds desperate ...... Do I need a new TV?
Friend has just bought this through Richer Sounds with a 6 year warranty and they will refund any difference if it goes down any further with another retailer.

I would only go for the 6753, 7303 or 7383. I received the 7303 yesterday and it’s solid. I’m really fussy, you won’t find a better tv at this price level right now and if you game amblight is unique.
Purchased from Richer Sounds for 369.99, used a 5% cashback card so happy days!
Problem is I have an lg 50" plasma. 10 years old but the blacks are still excellent. Is this edge lit?
Does the new Philips OS support Now TV? There’s frustratingly little info about available apps online
When contacting richer sounds, do you contact telesales or the nearest shop?

I must have got lucky as mine is getting delivered on Saturday
Thanks OP.

I tried Richer sounds but no go (same as gp1).

Anyway, I ordered it from Costco - seems like a good TV for the money.

Have you received tv I like most of it but not 100% sure the picture Is that good unless I use another source like Netflix 4k then yes that's really good. but just for general tv BBC itv the picture Is quite bad compared to my Sony on the same channels. What do you think, I think sat right in front of the tv its better but if i move to the left or right of the tv and the picture Is a lot worse viewing angles not that good. Any set up advice

Im thinking i need to tweak the set up a little more its quite confusing as there is a lot of set up. Sorry I didn't want to worry you just wanted to see another opinion form someone who has the same tv.

I remember there was a bit about it in the What Hifi review (whathifi.com/phi…iew). There's some instructions in the section entitled "Picture". Let me know if that helps so I can use it myself if my TV ever arrives!

Thanks mate still a bit worried after reading this on techadviser they say normal tv not great but 4k brilliant that's the same as I think. I may have to bring my Sony back down and put this one in the bedroom if I can't improve it.

"Viewing angles pretty good, but colours become washed out if you're sitting more than about 35 degrees off centre.

Although it supports HDR Plus, the 6703 isn't an amazingly bright TV. In Movie mode at a normal brightness level, the screen outputs around 150 nits. Switching to Vivid mode extracts the highest brightness, which with Brightness set to 100 saw a reading of 329 nits on our colorimeter.

It isn't dim - don't get us wrong - but you really need a peak brightness of 1000 nits or more to get the full benefit of hdr content."

Hmm, the techadvisor review seems pretty positive to me ("if you're after something that won't break the bank and is a good step up in quality from budget 4K TVs, it's a great choice").

The viewing angles are as expected from any VA panel. I have a Samsung VA in my bedroom and it gives a lovely picture. As for the HDR, in all honesty I don't expect any TV under £1000 to be able to do real justice to HDR so that's no surprise. In all honesty, like most new picture tech, it seems great when you first watch it but after a few weeks you stop thinking about it and just watch the programme being broadcast.

In the end we paid £380 for a TV that got a 4 star review at £700. It's described as a mid-range TV - and we've paid a budget-range price for it.

I am a little worried by your experience so I hope you're able to sort out the HD picture quality so it matches 4K. Either way, let me know what settings you settle on.

Yer you are right its a good all round review for the money like you said we can't expect too much. It's the viewing angle and the picture that's my main concern everything else is great 4k look really good.
Where the viewing angle is concerned, I think you'll have the same problem on all VA panels. IPS gives great viewing angles but is less colourful and dimmer. In the end you have to choose the panel based on what you need most - if you have a living room where people are really spread out, you should probably try and find an IPS panel. Otherwise, it seems, VA is your best choice unless you can stretch to OLED.

I'm a technophile but I always look at my purchases coldly. I try to find the sweet spot where you get the most bang for your buck and then see how close I can get with my budget. The reality is that for just a little bit better picture quality you can end up spending a LOT more money. And while you will really enjoy that extra deep black or HDR for the first couple of weeks, after that, it's just a way of accessing content. And if you can enjoy the content on the cheaper TV, why spend 3 times as much?
Has anyone figured out how to enable HDR10 yet? Can currently only get Sky Q to recognise 8bit (on HDMI 2)
I ordered this then cancelled as I saw a review which said it wasn’t that thin and wouldn’t look the best if walk mounted. Really disappointed as I was looking forward to this tv

only port 1 is suitable for this i think?

That would make sense wouldn't it, but apparently not!

"The TV can play HDR programmes* from HDMI 2/HDMI 3 connections, broadcasting, from an Internet source (e.g. Netflix) or from a connected USB memory device.

* Only HDR10 and Hybrid Log Gamma HDR are supported"

odd - thats a poorly translated manual - have you tried on port 1?
Finally got mine.

I'm trying to set it up correctly - does anyone know the correct installation for Freesat channels?
