Similar price at Curry’s (399) but this is the cheaper deal
I guess that depend on whether you have a membership already or not. Might be worth the extra cost for the warranty mind.

Still waiting on 7 series reductions.
Agreed, c’mon the 7 series... a wee 55” will do me dandy!
Remember that you need to have an active Costco membership for the full duration of the warranty period. I double checked this in store last week.

Just got the 50PUS7383/12 for £449 from a&o with the eBay 15 discount ,
Which only gives it 55%
Is the picture difference on the 7 series worth an extra £200.
Good deal for good TV - currently £419 at Richer Sounds, so depends what value you place on a 6 year warranty
Was looking at the Hisense H50A6200UK as I have vouchers to spend at curry’s . Is this Phillips a better TV ?

If you have Phillips hue, or like the ambilight or want to hook it up to sync with win 10, when you fine tune and tone down the ambilight effect, it's great, this TV wins hands down.
I got this from the deal Richer Sounds had on with the 6 year warranty.
Well impressed with the TV. Picture quality and ambilight is stunning for the price you can't go wrong

Thanks for the reply . The I like the look of the ambilight but picture quality is the most important factor and from what I’m reading this seems the business and is right on my budget

Just to say, I have the 7000 series, and the remote, although feels solid, the software is a little bit clunky, compared to the lg in another room, try and have a play in store, however, the ambilight, somehow enhances the picture, and I found softening the effect, lessened the in yer face, gimmick effect, and made it a subtle enhancement, I have it on when watching any TV, but comes into its own, when watching a blockbuster, esp sci fi! Some folks may like it full on, but there are loads of adjustments, for music, video, static ect.
This one or Samsung nu7400?
Had the 65pus7601 for around 6 months.

I loved it but it ended up switching hdmi itself or black screen every 30 minutes or so.

Philips blamed it on software but couldn't give me a timescale for fix so AO let me choose another TV with the £1400 I spent. (Samsung UE65MU8000)

Ive also got this 50pus6703 model in the bedroom. It's going the same way. While watching HDMI sources or even built in netflix app I get no signal warning and shutdown timer. It's a pain and I'm hoping one day it completely dies so I can justify getting something else.

Really disappointed with philips and wouldn't have another.

I think I'll email Costco head office and get an official response from them as it sounds like the different customer service staff on the day probably just don't know and have threw out an answer. I'll come back and confirm once they get back to me.
Oh god please don't let this thread end up 8+ pages long like the other 20 or so threads on the exact same model.

Just look at the price here, and then refer to the comments on (all) the other threads to save the same arguments all over again

Boooo!

Let’s get stuck in
Has it not been cheaper?
Can you use the ambilight with a PS4? Is this any good for gaming ?
Walked into Costco yesterday to see if they stocked this in store, they didn’t. Called Richer Sounds, popped by and got it for £385 price matched plus the 6 year warranty.
I have this TV in the 55" (picked it up for £400 with the eBay 20% code that was running over black Friday) great TV - Cant see myself ever buying another TV without Ambilight -its a major game changer - Whether its a movie or my PS4 it fills my whole wall with colour - its immense

I have noticed that the corners of the screen is darker than the actual picture. not sure if this is normal for this TV and its panel???

Contrary to other peoples options, i love the menu's and the netflix button on the remote is very usefull -

There is not a huge difference in my opionion to a 4k picture compared to a HD one, i think you need the panel to be OLED to notice a big difference , but the ambilight more than makes up for this

Bought one Thursday, sent back Sunday, so many issues with picture quality that it wasn't worth keeping
Got mine and a Yamaha soundbar for £630 having struck a deal with the Director at Richer Sounds, Belfast. Ordered it Thursday, arrived this morning.

RS, Belfast are brilliant.

Yes it works with whatever is on the TV at the time. It's fantastic, i got the 55inch last week and I don't regret it one bit
On the off chance anybody might be interested it is possible to retrofit an Ambilight kit to your existing telly as it is something I’ve been researching.

Couple of links here

lightberry.eu/

ambiscreen.tv/

Another option but this is more for those just wanting colours to reflect the back of the tv is to fit an led strip, works quite well and uses the USB port on the tv to power on & off in sync with your tv.

You also get a remote for changing colours etc, around £12 on amazon, check your screen size carefully though if you want it all the way round ..

Here we go - confirmation that you need to be an active member for the full 5 years of the warranty period. So for people who will be creating memberships just to buy a TV, it won't be worth it as you'll need to add 5 years worth of membership fees onto the TV price (which is approx ~£150). For people who have a membership anyway then happy days.

Useful to know, but in fairness that email doesn’t say you need to have had full membership for the duration you’ve had the tv.

Just you need to be an active member which I would read as having an active membership at the time the fault occurs.

Thanks for taking the time to have it checked out though - maybe reply to that email to say put another way if I buy a particular tv in year one but don’t renew my membership in years 2 & 3 but a fault appears in Year 3 and I renew my membership before I report the fault the warranty must still be valid? See what they say to that..

I think you’ll find the reply will be clear in that as long as you have an active membership the warranty on the tv is covered.

Wouldn't ever get a Philips "4K" again. Great for ambilight. But terrible picture always dark and dull. Even followed a video for the best results... Still poor. Returned
