Not bad, could do better, but dont regret buying
25 September 2018
Ok, I bought this and lasted two weeks before sending back, because Apps like Netflix and Plex kept freezing and when I switched to HDMI, the picture was blank. I took the view that must be faulty, no one is really complaining, so I had a replacement.
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.
