What's wrong with them?
I've got the older one of these, pretty good

HDR is hit and miss in places due to the low NIT on the screen

Not sure if this is better than the 49inch Samsung posted yesterday

Brilliant comment. Not. Either give reasons or bog off.

Got the 43PUS6262 2 sided Ambilight and simply can't fault it. Ambilight is brilliant. This is only a tenner more so HOT!

Which is better TV? This 50PUS6272 or Samsung 50MU6120 or the Panasonic 50EX700?
A few points:

This is a Philips TV in name only. The brand was wholly sold to a HK manufacturer in 2014, hence there is no support from Philips. If in doubt, check the official Philips TV support forum & check how many issues even get a response from Philips, never mind a resolution.

supportforum.philips.com/en/…rum

If you have a Harmony remote it work work with this TV (probably any other Philips branded TV) as there is no support for direct input selection. Owners have been requesting this since the buyout but all requests for help are simply ignored.

The stand is a rather agricultural bent coat hanger design. You get a few slithers of fabric to stick on it to protect whatever it's sitting on but I doubt they'd last long.

The picture is VERY bright. You can dull it down but I couldn't find any way to prevent bright whites from being bleached out.

When the picture brightness is turned down the menu brightness is still set to retina burn.

Dark silver? Well it isn't chrome I suppose. In my opinion nothing shouts cheap quite like the silver coloured plastic bezel on this.

Mine went back as soon as it became apparent that there was no support available.

Had a Philips TV for the last 6 years (just the one - it's been faultless). I'll never buy another TV without 3 sided Ambilight. Just couldn't do it . . .

As above, your TV is a Philips, this isn't.

Not that guy, but I bought this TV on Black Friday from Very. It's sluggish. I'm using it largely as a PC screen and it skips frames and I notice a lot of video playback is jerky on it. It's also slow response time, so I'm constantly feeling my like my mouse is on a sheet of ice.

Watching stuff on it looks great. Don't get me wrong. Most people wouldn't even notice the things I'm mentioning. But the reason I bought it over an arguably better tele was because I've wanted to try Ambilight for many years. I don't think I should have made a sacrifice on response time to enjoy the Ambilight.
A relative has an original Philips from years ago. 720p and its really good. The light effect is also really nice.
Another relative bought one this year. It's alright. Not great but has a lot of features that they use very heavily. Its good on many levels, thee main snag is the picture quality. Its lacking
Unfortunately all this 4k/UHD malarkey is largely another triumph for the marketing men. You really need to feed these sets a minimum of 1080 but I suspect many will be using standard Freeview/Freesat. Standard definition broadcasts will look attrocious, especially on the larger models.

I got this a few wks ago to replace an old lg lcd tv, picture quality is a massive upgrade from the lg and the bezels are tiny in comparison. The ambilight is an added bonus, havent had any of the issues mentioned above and would recommend this if its in your price range

Does following this guide solve it for you? hotukdeals.com/com…819

I'm tempted by the TV, but the mixed reports of input lag is putting me off, because I'd also have it hooked up to my PC.

It turns out that running the TV on the GAME picture setting, not running it in the advanced "computer" screen setting, has removed the input lag issue. Unfortunately the GAME picture setting has insase colour accuracy and the contrast is so high that gaming on it or watching TV via the PC is a non starter.
