wow!!! good price at last.

The Philips 56PFL9954 21:9 Cinema TV brings the cinema screen home!

In what is possibly the biggest development in TVs since widescreen, the Philips 56PFL9954 is the first commercially available TV with a genuine, cinema scale TV screen. The 21:9 aspect is, for the first time on a TV, to the exact scale of a cinema screen. This doesn't just mean an engaging wide picture but also the complete absence of those annoying black bars that blight most films. OK, so the screen isn't quite as big as most cinemas, but 56 inches is certainly big enough to give a genuine cinema experience in most living rooms. With all the excitement about the screen size and shape it would have been easy to have forgotten about the quality. Fortunately, that's not what Philips has done.

Key to the fantastic picture quality is Philips's Ambilight Spectra 3. This advanced ambient lightening system draws you in to the picture and makes it more comfortable to watch TV. In addition to 1080p HD Ready and 200Hz technology, this Philips 56 inch LCD TV also boasts the unique Philips technology of Perfect Pixel HD. Building on Philips's award-winning Pixel Plus, Perfect Pixel HD creates super-sharp definition and ultra-low noise. Perfect Natural Motion makes film replay a smooth, fluid process. Furthermore, with a, class-leading, response time of just 1ms, the Philips 56PFL9954 is one of the fastest responding TVs in its class. Factor in the astonishing contrast ratio of 80,000:1 and its clear to see that this 21:9 Philips TV is something very special indeed.

With a cinema sized screen you really need a cinema sized sound system to go with it. As ever, we'd always recommend using a TV of this size and quality with a separate home-cinema system. Having said that, considering the super-slim frame, this Philips 56 inch Ambilight TV is impressive. BBE sound enhancement and a powerful 2x15 watts amp give a more spacious sound with greater depth and width than is sometimes the case with large TVs.

Just when you think the Philips can't possibly offer any more, it responds with Net TV. As the name suggests, Net TV gives you access to a range of entertainment on the web: simply connect the 56PFL9945 to your home network via a LAN connection. NET TV also allows you to stream videos and pictures from your PC to TV. As you'd expect from this luxury TV, all the sockets you could possibly need are included. No fewer than five (one side-mounted) HDMI sockets cater for your High Definition sources. A USB socket lets you play back photos and music through the TV from memory storage devices. For other sources the twin SCART sockets, PC input, S-Video and component sockets prove comprehensive enough for any system. An added benefit is the coaxial digital output; perfect for connecting the TV to your home cinema system.

For home cinema to really mean home cinema, the Philips 56PFL9954 gets closer than ever before. Expand your horizons today!

Please note. Stand is an optional extra.

Can't see this taking off really when all the TV programmes are broadcast in 16:9, so for the sake of being able to see the occasional extra wide film you have to put up with either stretched TV programmes or black bars.

This is not for the lounge.

Purely for the dedicated Home Cinema (Rich kids)

It is only Cinema that uses this format.

The biggest problem is blue rays arn't in this format. The ones that are have black bars hard coded in. I remember the reviewers having a hard time finding decent sources for it. Shame.

Real rich kids would have a 4K projector setup

Because there's so much 4k2k video out there?

Given 3DTV is pushing prices of normal LCDs and even LED's down nicely in time for Christmas this is a dying and old model that was priced orders of multitude above what it should of been years ago.

Get a 50" Panny Plasma instead tbh.

Agreed you'd have black bars on the sides for 99.9% of the stuff you watched waste space and money.

So sometime next year you will be able to pay £2000 for a 20" 3DTV that you can watch without glasses, I am currently recommended to sit less than 2 metres from my 52" 3DTV to get a good experience with 3D content so this 20" tv must come with a chin strap.

By the time you can get a no glasses 3DTV in a size 50" or above for a reasonable price (3-5 years) I will be ready to change the one week old 3DTV that I have now.

Was going to post this myself last night but if you look it says Some may be ex-display or ex-repair, please phone to check stock if you are making a special journey. so one per store usually means ex diplay Also only 16 in stock one in each store so doubt if they have much stock left its not updated.

No way read the real press and its going to be at least 5 years before no glasses 3d is here and a 50+in will set you back more than the current 9000 series samsung at £5000.

Glad to have sparked debate!! I posted the no-glasses tv as not many people are aware of this new technology.

Is this offer for brand new boxed stock, or are they ex-dem/ ex-repair?
