I had been looking at the Philips 9002 Oled.. but I’m still not sold on tech that has inherent screen burn issues that companies refuse to cover with warranty. For well over a grand that’s simply an investment I decided I wasn’t willing to make.
So when I checked the rest of this years Philips lineup and saw that the PUS7303 series used a Direct Lit LED panel .. not only that, but it’s VA too (vertical alignment) as opposed to IPS (In Plane Switching) .. I was very excited.
In short, Direct Lit LED panels have the screen lights behind and across the entire screen.. this means you get far superior blacks and conformity of image. As opposed to the cheaper and far more common Edge Lit panels of today where the screen is Lit from lights around the edges... this causes lots of issues, such as light leaks and clouding around the edges of the screen. Also far worse blacks in the images.
The fact it’s a VA panel also means that again, the contrasts are far superior to an IPS panel which are far more common. However this does mean that you lose colour quality if viewing at acute angles (from the side, this doesn’t happen with IPS panels).
However, anyone who watches a TV from the side... we’ll... who does that?!
Direct and Center, the Direct-Lit / VA combo delivers astounding blacks and colour contrast. Absolutely zero clouding or other bad uniformity issues here.
Paired with the Philips Local dimming tech and the powerful P5 chip inside and this set is probably the closest you’re going to get to Oled without actually buying Oled.
And because it’s LED/LCD... you needn’t worry about image retention as you would the Oled.
Yes, the Android has some issues.. Philips have updates on the way to rectify these and hopefully streamline usability.
The remote is solid and also requires updates itself as it runs the Google voice assistant. It has a full query keyboard on the underside to save time inputting information.
Inbuilt Netflix button and Amazon instant/Prime video installed already, alongside BBC iPlayer and other smart TV apps like Youtube etc.
On bank holiday this set was reduced from £700 to around £500...
Couldn’t resist... that’s the deal of the century for a 50” TV with this much going for it.
The three sided ambilight is the icing on the cake.
If you’ve never experienced ambilight. It’s Philips patented party trick.
Tiny but powerful inbuilt led lights run along the top and sides of the rear of the set. Set to “follow video” and they immediately and in real time analise what’s on screen (closest to the edges) and they paint that particular shade of colour on the wall behind.
Sounds gimmicky... maybe it is. But put it this way, once I had an ambilight TV.. watching a TV without it... just seemed hugely lacking.
It actually enhances the viewing experience and removes the limitations of the screen size by extending the visual experience around the TV whilst acting as bias lighting to reduce eye strain.
It can be turned off... or set to a single steady colour.. or set to follow audio.. or set to rotate through pre programmed colour hues.
It can even be linked (through Philips Home Hue Hub - sold separately... in conjunction with Philips hue bulbs... also sold separately) so that every Philips hue bulb talks to the ambilight and replicates the colours from the screen around your home.
There’s examples of this on YouTube.
Seriously. Top, top TV. Great value. Incredible image quality. Don’t even hesitate.
Now I have the second one about a month and the Apps don’t freeze but the HDMI issue remains, so I get up and restart the TV and HDMI comes back to life. I have searched on the web and found other Philips TVs give the same issue.
Send back or live with (I have chosen to live with, perhaps may get fixed with an update, I hope)
Picture quality from Sky HD, PS4 and Internal apps is very good, just wish I had a theatre sized screen, as those black bars of wasted screen do bug me when watching films, but fine on SKY HD, the wife can watch Casualty happy and I do watch a lot of TV Series from my Plex server.
That ambient light feature did not make it past day 1, don’t like it, that will be a personal preference of people, but I don’t live in a night club and don’t need it.
In conclusion, nice design, respectable picture but please Philips fix your software, so if the HDMI is blank, refresh to make sure its blank.
So it's become apparent that the set does indeed have direct back lighting, it appears to be in 4-5 sectors of the set, however there are issues with the design of this, leading to very inconsistent back lighting of images, and indeed it is apparent that the backlights are of different colours! This might not be a problem if you only ever watch full screen and bright TV shows / full screen bright games, but the issue is massive as soon as you watch anything dark (Haunting on Hill House for example) or films that have borders.
The effect of this is that its like you are looking through a reflection constantly which causes eye strain.
I've uploaded photos of both the original and replacement sets to show the fault in a dark room (dim lit or in my pictures, lights off) with a dark (black) input. The darker of the two images is the old (original, October 2018 manufacture date) and the brighter is the new (November 2018 manufacture) set.
Both of these sets were from different batches a month apart so I can say that this is actually an issue with the design of the set itself rather than just blind luck that I received 2 faulty sets.
Needless to say they are both being returned for a refund.
So I've had mine for just over a week now and here is my thoughts on it;
Firstly download and manually update the TV from the Philips site. The update makes it function far far better than it did out of the box, and for some reason auto update refuses to pickup this update at all. Picture quality and stability of android is definitely improved from where it was when I received it.
Set your expectations realistically. VA panels have limits on viewing angles and anything off of dead centre results in partial colour shifts which becomes more apparent in black/dark scenes which is a pain if you use it for watching more films than anything else. Unless you are sat perfectly straight on (maybe you have the TV at a slightly odd angle to your sofa / sitting area because you have an odd shaped room or a window in the way) then you will see this. Some people are less sensitive than others, and I know I'm particularly sensitive to this issue and this set doesn't negate it very well. Other sets on the market seemingly do a better job of this when I've tested them at friends houses / stores etc.
Early indications were that this was a full array back lit panel. From what I can tell however it seems to be edge lit (get below the set and look up on a black screen, you will see edge lighting) but it could just be a bad set that I have may be faulty or have a light bleed issue. I need another set to compare it against.
Black levels are... "OK" everyone raving about black levels must have come from a significantly lower end set with very poor black levels or does not change contrast and back light settings to get blacker blacks.. This replaced my 10 year old Samsung LE46A656 and the black levels on that were an edge better than this set. Watch any show / film with black bars and you'll see this issue very quickly. Using the ambilight as bias lighting does help with the black levels looking a bit pants. Don't expect the inky blacks you see on higher end sets.
Calibration for best picture is essential, but there are hardly any guides on the internet for this set so I had to use guides for the next model up then tweak accordingly. Note that this TV does seem to push reds pretty hard, but if you reduce them you loose skin tone so expect some reds to "pop" a little more than they really should regardless of how you calibrate it.
The menu is badly translated. The first "contrast" Setting option is actually backlight. In the advanced options "Video contrast" is actually the contrast.
The reviews indicating audio / video sync issues, I've found that this is resolved by turning off all picture processing except sharpening. e.g HDR upscale, 4K upscale, smooth motion (though I always leave this off because I find it looks bad on every TV I've ever tried) and so on. Read most review sites and the recommendation is always to turn these off anyway which is what I've always done on every set to get the most "natural" image.
Image settings to NOT preserve across inputs and you can't just copy one input settings to another. This is seriously annoying and how, in 2018 is that not there? Many other sets, including cheaper ones that I have used, have this feature.
The remote is going to be marmite. Having the keyboard on the back is nice but its very chunky and not massively ergonomic. Additionally the flatter nature of the buttons makes input ambiguous at best often resulting in buttons not being pressed because there is flex in the assembly. For example directional and OK should have been separated into different buttons.
HDR is again "OK". There isn't the peak brightness really in order to get the most from it. If you want the best from HDR look for a "HDR Premium" set as this will have the peak brightness required to really make it worth while.
Over-all it's an OK set, so long as you buy it WELL below RRP. Black Friday had good deals for this set, but even then I still feel it was a bit too expensive for the quality. Ultimately you are being charged a premium over other sets mid-range offerings because of Ambilight.
