If you hurry, you can get £30 off (ends tonight), with a vouchercloud code for £30 off a TV over £499 (or equal to it !). Brings Price down to £469. On top of this Top Cash Back are offering 2.5% (potentially another £12.50 off).

Also after you place your order they ask if its ok to call you about their extended warranty plans. Whether you buy one or not, you can either have an upgraed delivery time slot or its cash equivalent (ie £20 credit). Or you can have a straight £20 off voucher but only if nx purchase is >£299 spend (yuck no thanks....just show me the money!)

Add to this the other £20 "They Shoot...You Score" England Promo, of a £20 refund if England qualify through the Group stages....and potentially you could have this set for :

£499 - £ 30 - £12.50 - £20 - £20 = £416.50

On the Philips website, they say they guarantee all of their TVs for 24 months from date of purchase, if you register your purchase on their website

Doesn't matter who the retailer is they still have to abide by UK and or EU law.
If you don't know what to do I suggest you look on Consumer Action Group, it really isn't hard.

Pity this 55" model is an IPS panel, rather than a VA panel like the 50" version.

Hi Buddy, I'm upgrading from a "Teco"HD Ready TV, so hoping it won't make a difference Being a bit of a noob, I did look up the differences, and found that the IPS panel is suited to those that want a beautiful / impressive immersive visual experience...(which in all honesty, is why I'm really buying an ambilight TV in the first place).

Heres the full text explaining differences, hopefully it helps someone :
*****
IPS panels solve the issues of TN panels, with better color reproduction and viewing angles, but do so at the cost of refresh rate and response time. IPS panels are especially useful for those not wanting to play too competitively, but want a beautiful/immersive visual experience. PLS and AHVA are similar enough to IPS to usually not be differentiated.

VA panels provide a good middle ground with better-than-IPS refresh rates and contrast levels, but have worse viewing angles and color production, although generally still better than TN. Response times are VA’s largest downfall, though, being slower than IPS and its variants and TN.

What’s best for you will depend on all of these items. For those wanting to play at a competitive level and who favor FPS or racing games, TN panels are best. Those wanting a more impressive and immersive experience may want an IPS (or similar variant, such as PLS), especially if working on artistic endeavors. Finally, those wanting a general monitor for work might consider a VA panel, although due to their higher response times, they won’t be good for gaming.

Don't know about anybody else but I'm loving the World cup footy in UHD on the iplayer at the moment.
Trouble is games that are on ITV in HD don't look as good... Only have a humble Hisense tv but good enough for me.

Blimey! Nine years before posting a deal...Chumba_Wumba.

Mind you it can be a bit scary, especially if the deal nose dives into frozen territory.

lol...to be honest its actually been 9 years of leaving sarcy comments on other people's deals...that finally convinced me to post a deal of my own...why ?

In order to try and restore balance to the universe....that's right Jamgin, I'm not doing this for the heat, I'm trying to save the universe!
(and also maybe a little bit because I want to watch the World Cup in 4K on the BBC iPlayer app - but that's just a minor side issue really )

My brother in law has this telly, its a really nice set. Havent seen it in use for games but HD and SD TV looks incredible. I even almos took back my recent Sony purchase to get one instead. So anyone on the fence, don't hesitate.

agreed, i have this philips set, and have been watching all bbc games in 4k on the iplayer, very nice. But what i have noticed is that unusually, ITV HD's picture quality of their feed is much better than the BBC HD's (not talking about 4k) - i always preferred BBC hd coverage but this time round the wide shots are noticeably fuzzier and desaturated vs ITV's.
Incidentally folks...please read carefully through the OP, and ALL the little discounts and credits that should allow you to get this TV for a quite frankly ridonkulous potential price as low as £416.50...

And if you're worried about not being able to use the £30 voucher code... here's a very viable replacement :
Just make sure you sign up and create an account before placing your order...simples !

Oh and i bought it from Argo's then for £370.

Says display specification! Philips told me that if the model are the same no matter what size they have same panels. I actually think they might all be ips panels. Who to believe, philips would not give me the type of panel.

I wouldn't stress about it, this tv is incredible value, buy one, it's going to be way better than your current tv. If you don't like it send it back. I had the 50in And gaming isn't a issue on it
Dreadful TV from a dreadful Chinese manufacturer. This is "Philips" in name only as the TV business was sold to a Hong Kong outfit years ago. Mine went back for a FHD Samsung which is far superior, especially on SD content. As already stated, tech support is pretty much non-existent.

Harmony remote users; note that there is no support for discrete input switching.

From what I've already read, I'd say certainly no more than there would be for any other brand or make of TV.
The Argos reviews also seem dont seem to indicate any issues.

Also ironically I have an old Phillips TV, their last great CRT TV lol, that I bought over 15 years ago, just as flat panels were the shiny and still pricey new boys on the block. Its still going strong by the way...and weirdly has the best sound of any TV, I've ever owned (well it was £1195..I know what was I thinking). Its sitting in a corner now waiting to go, a bit like an old yet trusty faithful pet, thats sturggling now to walk about. I'll be sad to see the ole blighter go. As will my kids, who grew up with it.

Definitely a point worth considering, if you're buying for SD content. Also its probably less likely to catch fire, than a Samsung fingers crossed, lol Thank you.

Thanks. What do you think of the Smart OS? Is it anywhere near as good as LG's or Samsung's, what's the lag like, does it have the main apps including the Smart IPTV app etc? Good, credible reviews for this TV are not easy to come by. Thanks in advance.

Congratualtions on your FIRST deal @Chumba_Wumba this must be a record that needs a special badge from the hotter pepper team, 9 years is a long time to over come your fears and deserves recognition for saving the Universe!!!

Oh and the TV is fabulous by the way!
Very tempting, I still have the old HD version of this TV and it was awesome in its day, any views on this compared to say a £600 samsung really not sure what to buy, needed for virgin V6 box and ps 4

I’m not a football fan but tried out the UHD trial on iPlayer and I’m finding the wide shots extremely desaturated, at first I thought it was my tv so I’ve been watching lots of 4K Netflix and confirm it’s got to be the camera.
