Cheapest this particular set has ever been.
3393385.jpgScintillating OLED picture, Alexa voice control and SAPHI smart tech all come together to make the Philips 55OLED754 a clear class favourite.

Picture perfected with the Philips P5 Perfect Picture Engine
With the Philips P5 Perfect Picture Engine at its heart, the 55OLED754 delivers stunning image quality. Enjoy the deepest blacks and the brightest whites, the most vivid, brilliant colours and natural, lifelike skin tones. You also get Philips’ most fluid, razor sharp pictures with incredible detail and depth, in sport, movie, or any other genres - every time and from any source.

Total immersion with Ambilight 3-sided
Unique to Philips, Ambilight technology expands the picture’s presence, giving a more immersive and engaging experience. With intelligent LEDs around the top and sides of the TV, colour from the picture is cast into the room – in real time. Colour, vibrancy and excitement move beyond the screen and into your living room to bring you a viewing experience beyond the ordinary.

OLED TV
Delivering the ultimate picture quality, this Philips TV uses OLED technology. Unlike conventional LED TVs, OLED doesn't need a backlight. Each pixel makes its own colour and light. When they are turned off, they are completely black. With deeper blacks you get enhanced colours and astonishing contrast that allows you to enjoy the purest, most lifelike image.

Get the best from HDR with HDR10+ and WCG 99%
For the highest quality picture, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology to date. With HDR10+ each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments. Combined with Wide Colour Gamut at 99%, this Philips OLED TV produces stunning image realism. The 55OLED754 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, the 55OLED754 is also compatible with Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas around the world. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in, the Philips 55OLED754 decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. Featuring a built-in 2.1 speaker set-up with subwoofer and a 40 watt amp, it provides powerful, well-rounded sound.

Voice control with Alexa built-in
New to this TV is voice control via Alexa. With Alexa built-in, you simply speak into the remote to make function changes. Switch channel, change source or even adjust your lighting and thermostat, all by simply asking Alexa. Controlling your smart home just got easier, with Alexa built-in.

Smarter TV from SAPHI
Packing the latest SAPHI smart system, powered by a Quad Core processor, this Philips 55” OLED TV is a slick performer with Smart content, too. Connect up to your home network by Ethernet or Wi-Fi and enjoy access to a wide range of apps including favourites such as Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube the BBC iPlayer and more. A built-in web browser lets you browse and stream to your heart's content.

Freeview Play for catch-up TV
Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels. Simply scroll back in your TV guide to watch shows you missed from the last 7 days. Just make sure your TV is connected to the internet and you're good to go.

All the connections
With four HDMI sockets and host of other connectivity, the 55OLED754 easily becomes the heart of your home entertainment. Use the HDCP2.2 compatible sockets to connect your UHD Blu-ray player, games console, set-top box and still have a spare. The RCA component input is ideal for older games consoles and DVD players and is harder to find on many modern TVs. Twin USB sockets are perfect for media devices and even let you record onto a compatible device as a PVR (Personal Video Recorder).

Philips still exist and are doing just fine.

However, it's not one of those cases where another company just bought the rights and slapped the name on cheap TVs. TPV bought the entire Philips TV division, including the staff, having previously been partnered with them for several years (any Philips TV since 2011 has had TPV's involvement). Nothing actually changed in terms of how the entire setup worked except for the ownership, and they've still produced consistently high quality TVs since then (including this one). This all happened back in 2014, so it's not exactly breaking news.

Ambilight is amazing, can recommend it!!
Got one of these on black Friday at this price. Really good picture quality and ambilight is really good. Oled doesn't have the peak brightness of the QLED Samsung displays but it's hard to give up the pure blacks. Really compensates for the lack of brightness

It didn't. The TV manufacturing business was licensed out to TP Vision, and a lot of the TV staff went to TP Vision.

TP Vision only make Philips TV's, these aren't off the shelf rebrands.
Any good for gaming?
Better than b9 or c9?

Not likely.

B9 hit £999 recently as well so if you're in the market for OLED might as well hang on until the CX range launches and the B/C9 hit record low prices.

That is an 8 year old article, Philips TVs was moved off as part of that and as mentioned are now made elsewhere but still use some Philips tech such as ambilight
We have an older Philips ambilight LED -not oled- 2018 and a Samsung QLED which has better picture but use this Philips for film nights as the ambilight makes it so much more immersive.

I've had this for a few weeks, but had to return it because of a fault and bought a B9. They both have their strengths and weaknesses:

Philips positive:
- Ambilight (matter of taste, I quite liked it, even if just set to white as a bias light)
- Never noticed reflections on the screen, whereas with the LG the reflections are quite annoying. Not sure if Philips uses a less reflective screen coating or that the Ambilight makes reflections less noticeable.
- Sound has more bass. The Philips sounds a bit like a soundbar whereas the LG sounds more like a TV. Both sound 'ok', but you're better of with a separate audio system.
- Low quality content and non-HDR content looked better to me on the Philips. (without lots of tweaking the settings)

LG positive:
- Dolby Vision looks a bit better, some scenes looked a bit dull on the Philips.
- Much better user interface, the Philips 754 user interface and remote looks and feel slow and cheap.
- Apps run a lot better

Overall the LG is a more polished product and smart TV. For HDR content (especially Dolby Vision) the LG looked better to me, for other content the Philips was more enjoyable to watch. If I had to choose now, I would go for the LG B9. I'll probably stick some led strips on the back though.

I wouldn't say they're doing 'just fine' they are a shadow of what they used to be. Most of the core business of electronics, lighting white goods, has now gone, leaving them as just a medical equipment company. They were not too long ago one of the biggest companies in Europe.

You're welcome to say whatever you like, but reality doesn't change and they're doing just fine. Where they are now is a choice, not something forced upon them. Philips Lighting (now Signify) was/is the largest lighting company in the world, yet they still decided to sell it off, because they're focused on the medical supply business. They're profitable and doing fine in that field.

I bought an OLED TV with the same concerns about screen burn. Firstly, my LG OLED is amazing - the picture is just the absolute best. I've had no problems with screen burn.
However, I spent the first year of ownership worrying about screen burn. Every time my kids watched some Youtube cartoon with a bright logo, my teeth would grind. Every time my wife switched on Sky News and then walked out the room, I'd have to bite my tongue so hard it hurt. When watching something on iPlayer, I struggled to fully immerse in the show as my eyes kept flicking to the BBC logo. Worrying about screen burn really stole from the experience.
So you probably don't need to worry about screen burn. The question is, can you not worry about it and just enjoy the TV?

I'm willing to put up with screen burn on the proviso I can get 2 or 3 years quality viewing out of one on my eventual purchase.

Well I'm not waiting for my plasma to die but having looked at some oled TV's recently maybe it should (for my sake right now hope not!) or at least rest in peace or go to another loving caring home.Smallest oled right now is 55" & I want a 48" but not available until March I've been told.

Same:)
I mean, I am still on year one!
My missus doesn’t even pretend to listen to the explanations about permanent logos:)
Kids hate me for imposing limits on YouTube and other crap games like Roblox they could play all day long:)
But, so far, no screen burn in and 90% of content we watch as household has no permanent logos whatsoever and we play a variety of games - not same old game every day:)
But I agree, all that worrying ignited by those misinformed QLED advocates robs a bit of experience so my advice is:
-Ignore QLED fanboys
-do your research on screen burn in and real tests
-activate all anti-burn in features like pixel orbiter and standby, screen dimming on Xbox
-save a planet and stop wasting electricity on 24/7 news and such nonsense
-be xtra careful for first 100 hours juts like with Plasma
-don’t worry that much- screen burn-in is really a result of screen abuse! And I guarantee, even OLED users that have suffered it won’t probably tell you all truth and admit they messed up!:)
Overall, I think you just have to be very unlucky to have issues with screen burn in! Just like with anything else in life - cars, other electronic gadgets etc.

Stop showing me things I can't afford!
If the 804 was this price it’d be hot
Got this TV on Black Friday. It's a fantastic bit of kit, Ambilight really does make a lot of difference.

Something to be aware of, screen settings are saved for each individual input, so dont think turning motion smoothing off on Netflix will also turn it off on your Playstation etc. Inputs.

I think you're missing the point, this TV was over a grand up until I posted it when it's price dropped to £989, then the code brings it down a further £20, the £989 reflects the next best price.
got a 3 year old OLED Phillips model which i got early last year, brilliant TV and the picture is top notch! everyone who comes over always comments on the picture quality.
