Philips 50PUS6523/12 50-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV : Great value

This is quite a good looking television with a thin bezel and discrete stand (so discrete indeed that i thought it was meant to be a wall-mount at first)we first set this up next to our existing television (a 50” plasma by panasonic) in order to more easily compare the picture quality. It soon became apparent that which is better depends upon what you are watching. For football, the plasma had the edge as it copes better with fast movement. For nature documentaries though, this set was amazing and the closest you can get to feeling like you are looking through a window (albeit with a strange colour filter in it)to get a great 4k tv for less than £700 was unheard of to me, for this to be less than half that – you would expect something to be very wrong. However, i freeview play and uk tv play make a great effort to sum up all tv shows worth watching into one convenient place without having to try every service separately when browsing. And what’s more – this is as yet the best smart tv interface i have found over the years – and i cannot recommend it more. The remote is very simply laid out for once despite being a very customisable tv – the remote could be understood by anyone of any age and harks back to the straightforward almost empty remotes of years past. Colour – here i take issue – when compared alongside my 50” panasonic plasma, colours are noticeably ridiculous and flawed. Sound quality with both is on a par, if i had to pick i’d give it to the panasonic but with either i still prefer to use a sound bar and speakers for the best effect.

Really happy with my television.

Had problems with channels being deleted and unable to restore, and sound quality was not too good.

I bought this 65-in tv for my xbox and i am really happy with it.

The picture isn’t always great when streaming tv through the internet. For the price paid and the technical specification of the product i would have thought the overall picture quality would be better.

The tv arrived without a power cable, which was extremely frustrating. The tv itself is good value for money, although it will need a sound bar or speakers i suspect as the volume doesn’t go very high.

Very good quality for the money. Smart features are good but some are not worth having. Find remote a bit fiddly but getting used to it.

Love the tv but disappointing that at the moment for some weird reason it won’t tune any bbc channels. All my other tv’s can tune them from the same aeriel. Might return for a replacement if it doesn’t sort itself out.

I have wanted a television for my bedroom for some time now. And although this would be perfectly good in your living room being 43 inches, it is great for lazy sundays or before going to sleep in your bedroom. I have actually looked at a toshiba tv of the exact same specifications. 43”, 4k quality smart tv so have something to compare it with. And i have to say that set felt like the quality of materials used were better than this set. This set felt like the plastics used were a little cheap in comparison. But it still looks great so it is a minor quibble. The stands were very easy to install. I laid the tv gently down on the bed then they slotted in and had two screws in each which was very quick and easy to do. Setting up and the control menus are very easy to use. That is where this has an advantage over the toshiba. Controller is simpler in layout which means you are not looking around for the right button. And the menus are simple and intuitive. I had the digital channels installed and was set up on my accounts on netflix and youtube in no time and i liked the fact i could log in to youtube on the tv by simply turning on the app on my phone or ipad.

Great value for money, looks fab.

Sound is so much better than other smart tv’s i have bought recently.

Brilliant picture, great colour depth and super-easy to use.
