Enhance all your viewing with the stunning effect of Ambilight, on the Philips 65PUS8555.

Ambilight 3-sided for unique vision
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.

Philips P5 Perfect Picture Engine delivers stunning image quality
With huge processing power, the Philips P5 Engine delivers the best picture possible – whatever the source. 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.

HDR optimised, with HDR10+
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. The 65PUS8555 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

I have the 70" model up from this 70PUS9005. Personally I'd pay the extra and get the 9 series for the 4 sides ambilight, it makes a huge difference. I paid £765 for my 70"

Not worth wasting your money on this rubbish the ambilight is a gimmick most people don't use and is just an attempt to cover inferior screen tech.Also with 50 hz refresh rate don't expect anything but motion blur from action scenes and will be useless for gaming with consoles. Honestly can't get across how rubbish these tvs actually are. No one else sticks bulbs on side of the screen for obvious reasons.


Just because your Philips TV broke within 3 years doesn't mean that they all break within 3 years. I've had Samsung, Hisense and LG TV's fail for various reasons, within 3 years.

The TV is 60hz, but marketed as 50hz as that's the PAL TV standard in the UK.

I've had a 50PUS6753 for a couple of years, and find the picture quality is better than my Samsung 55NU7400 which was purchased around the same time. The only thing I don't like about it is the operating system.

If it's going on the wall it's worth it, if not, not so much.


100% Agreed, We have ours on the wall but If I was having on a stand I wouldn't be as bothered about the bottom, we have an ambilight in our bedroom which is only 2 sided and it looks crap in comparison.

Absolutely ridiculous statement! A long established and respected retailer like Richer Sounds wouldn't be able to offer a 6 year warranty across all Philips TVs if they 'normally fail within 3 years'. Also, a refresh rate of 50/60Hz is normal at this and a slightly higher price point.

As for Ambilight, virtually every real world personal review I've ever seen shows that owners love it. Where did you get your information from to justify your statement 'most people don't use' it?

How do you find the brightness and black levels ? I’m seriously considering buying this TV but can’t find any reviews.

The brightness is good for me, we have a very bright living room too and it's really good. We did have one issue with the blacks on the first night we used it, we watched a movie on netflix and the dark areas we're really pixelated. Since then I've played with the settings and followed advice from another thread and I'm really happy with it now.
The only issue I'm having is with Prime video constantly losing connection but that happens on another android tv I have too. So I am going to connect it via ethernet.

Hey thank you for the feedback. Could you point me in the direction of that thread at all please ? I’m seriously considering this now.

The bottom doesn't look as bright as the top and sides due to the angle we have our TV at (It's best 15-20cm away from the wall) but If I close the curtains then it's just the same as the other areas.

Yes


When you turn the ambilight off does it stay off or revert back to on when you turn the TV back on? Thanks
Am I right in thinking that other hue lights can sync with the TV without having to use a computer as the video source? So if I’m watching Netflix through the TV I can get ambilight and my 3 hue bulbs to sync?

Hi mate, I've got the 9005, I'm on my second set, first was slightly damaged and had some backlight bleed, the second also has backlight bleed.. Any chance you could take some pics of yours with a black screen in a dark room... Thanks

Cheers mate, on mine during normal scenes it's not noticeable like the video you posted. Any chance on just a dark screen with no image? A picture would suffice. Thanks
