First world problem X)

As long as anyone thinking Philips owns the "Philips TV" brand or makes Philips TVs realise that Philips themselves sold out their last stake to TPV Technology in 2014 and TP Vision produce "Philips TVs" for most of the world!

Be aware - I don't believe this TV has a HVEC decoder, which means it can't stream NetFlix 4k.

I don't have any personal experience of that, but I did do a quick google which led me to an AV Forums review of the 55 inch version.

Found a better deal for the same TV which is brand new and with 3D glasses included - Mostly its a UK version

So it can't decode HEVC 4K streams. Neither does it have HDMI 2. I guess I can see why it's so cheap.

Saw this too and tried to add that deal on HotUk, but the site said it does not allow deals from Nigel O'Hara - make of that whatever you will!

TV is terrible, save your pennies & invest in a half decent one.

No VP9 either. This TV is already an antique and unfit for purpose.
As a low end model the picture is likely worse than a similarly priced 1080p.

So saying all this, what actual use is this 4k panel? Especially at this size. It will of course upscale 1080p stuff, but that won't necessarily translate into better quality - after all there will still be the same level of detail in the picture. In actual fact introducing this processing might reduce pq.

Might be good for a PC monitor though.

I'm assuming it does 4K at 30Hz... but im not entirely sure.

​does it upscale though? That's usually a feature on more premium tvs

Not quiet, but are you thick? Not all PC's are used with someone sat 12 inches in front of them doing office work.

Lots of people use them for HTPC or a gaming setup or even an advertising display.

It says 400hz, can't see 30hz in description

Checked argos and the reviews are 4&1/2 stars. Checked many places and good reviews not quite sure where all this info regarding hertz and being a poor TV is coming from

You getting confused with the hz for 1080p stuff and 4k stuff.

The 1080p is '400hz', even that label of 400hz is probably marketing fluff. The 4k stuff on this TV is at 30hz according to a post above.



From the Philips website:

Supported Display Resolution

Computer inputs on all HDMI
up to 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160
Video inputs on all HDMI
@24, 25, 30 Hz
up to 4K Ultra HD 3840 x 2160p

The concern with the Argos reviews is that they are written with minimal understanding about what they have purchased, basically confirming that the majority of people are being hoodwinked. Trading Standards should be all over this nonsense. It's like the 'HD Ready' situation all over again!

- The TV has no built in 4K functionality, these apps require VP9/HEVC decoders. i.e. No Netflix 4k.
- The HDMI inputs do not support HDCP 2.2 so you can't connect external devices (Sky/BT Vision 4K)
- You are limited to a 30Hz PC input for any 4K content. This is too low and not acceptable.
Unfortunately you cannot use Netflix on a PC for 4K streaming.
- The TV is not 400Hz, it will display a picture at 30/50/60hz. This exaggerated figure is the claimed back light rate. Again Trading Standards should step in and start forcing manufacturers to make this clearer.




Price gone up?

Thank you very much. That's a really good in depth answer. Much appreciated.

I originally posted this deal and will now expire. What Appliances Direct are doing is disgraceful. They realised that they were getting lots of hits on this TV page and have been slyly increasing the price by approx £10 every few hours.

BUT stupidly they have increased the price of this A2 condition refurb gradually by so much, they forgot that they have a A1 better condition refurb which now works out £10 cheaper!

Doh!
