I've got the 65 inch version of this TV and after being a bit put off due to no reviews and never having a Philips TV, I went for it with Richer Sounds and the 6 year warranty. Incredibly pleased with the picture quality. I'd never seen ambilight and its brilliant during movies. HDR10+ along with Dolby Vision/dolby atmos that kicks in automatically when loading up Netflix. Compared to an LG 50 inch 4k TV I bought last year, the HDR in games is far more punchier in game mode with minimal lag and the colour range has a lot more depth. BT sport etc in 4k looks staggering. If I had to be picky I'd say the interface to change tv settings could be more intuitive. Sometimes instead of going back in menus after a change to make another, you've got to start the process again from the main menu. Also I found the TV lagging massively in the menus the other day and found it was just getting an update ready so don't worry if you get the same thing. Other than that I absolutely love the screen and feel it reflects true value. Recommended to others!

Yes, it can easily be turned off but that's not the end of it. It has a massive amount of settings including choosing the colour of the wall it is being projected on so that it can adjust the projection for optimum results!). Ambilight is a very very clever innovation.

Has it's own settings menu via button on remote to toggle on/off and other options inc. Lights can follow video (light 'bleed' in relation to tv colours), audio or set to colour.

Overall, really impressive in darkened room.

Yes you can disable it or have it associate with movies, music etc. You also have an ambilight dedicated button on the remote to have it fire up when the TV is off to illuminate a dark room if needed. Also the intensity of the ambilight can be changed to suit the light strength you require.
This cant get Plex still right? Thinking this model wont have Plex in its app store and not an android tv, thinking I need the more expensive model if so that reason.

Been waiting for a 55"/60" inc version of one of these, anyone know if there's likely to be one coming soon? The 50" was the last one on sale via Argos, think 70" is too big for our space.
Mine broke after two years so wouldn’t buy another. It now has what look like sun spots on it or someone shinning a torch on the screen from behind.

You can turn it off
Is purchasing it off eBay any good? I’ve seen the 43 and 50 inch versions and I’m very tempted but as it’s eBay I’m twiddling my thumbs
Bought!
Now I need to buy a bigger house to accommodate the 70 inch.
Any hot deals???
Thanks for posting @Spicyhotnot we have added this to the Highlights section

Looks like a good TV but I couldn't play games looking up to the ceiling like that ,far to high. just bought the the Samsung q70r 55 for £936 unbelievable HDR with freesync very minimal lag

We took those pictures on moving in the house as it was the first thing we put up. Now it's been angled downwards, so it's in the perfect position for our eyes when reclining on the lazyboy sofa. The Samsung q's are nice tvs but a friend said I must go to 65 inch to see the true benefit of 4k. I wasn't prepared to spend the qdot price on a 65 inch, as I used to blow 1k-2k on tvs years ago. As our rooms nice and big we thought we'd try it and so glad we went up to it from a 50 inch 4k LG. This offers unbelievable value for money, games like Odyssey are amazing in HDR and the ambilight is really immersive so hopefully plenty will take up the offer. Its clear now you don't have to spend over 1k to get a really decent big screen!

Yes fair enough mate first time I've spent close to a 1000 on a TV myself, got it through unidays, I have to say I'm very impressed with the HDR on the q70. I previously had a Sony xd80 50 inch but the q70 is far beyond that picture wise, especially the blacks.also watching reviews the q70-80-90 are probably the best TVs you can get for gaming

Gimmick


Haha we thought the same but it really isn't. Takes a few hours to not be focusing on it but then you really notice when it's not present on another TV. Least it can be turned off if not required but I can see why people rave about it now!
Fantastic.If I had the dosh it would be in my living room tomorrow.

Same as 2year warranty and broke after 2yrs 2 months seems a common issue sun spots on the screen these are newer models so maybe the issue won’t happen

Would never buy a philips TV again myself,mine has had numerous faults and the repair company (sublet twice) said most of their business is with Philips sets.If you must buy one then either get it from JL or RS for a much longer warranty.
I spent more money on a smaller OLED and starting to regret it now
How well do these link up with hue bulbs? And is it easy to do?

I can't see how this is £899, it is £999 on the website and with the code it is £949.

The price doesn't seem to have changed and the two that were sold before this was posted both sold for £999.

Have you seen it’s a lens cover for sure ? I got quoted £350 and no guarantee that replacing the led where it is affected would fix it so that’s why I have left it I only got 1 spot now but worry £700 for less than 2.5yrs ownership and now I’ve seen it on a few different models of Philips tv
Must admit I wouldn’t buy a tv without amblight now just gutted about this white spot issue I think Philips should fix it if under 3yrs old jokers

Have a look at this link on youtube it shows whats involved, the most difficult part is seperating the glass lcd panel from its surroundings the glass is possibly 2mm or so thick and breaks easily,

Running the tv without the lens covers may damage the glass lcd panel because of the heat from the led is now concentrated in a much smaller area and may burn the panel leaving black smoke stains which will show up when wathing the tv

This sort of job ive only attempted on faulty tv's i have purchased to repair, my success rate is not very good, roughly 50/50
with broken screens and the cof cable bonding to the glass being the cause of failure
Proceed at your own risk.....

Tried it found nearly all the filters just fell off touching them real poor quality glue I would say. Not touching rear led tv again after this experience, think it maybe to do with wall mounting a tv like this and when you clean it makes the whole tv flex slight causing this filter to fall off and the glue to break away. Do not wall mount a rear led tv is my suggestion
