Philips TV Philips Ambilight 43PUS6754/12 TV 43 inch LED Smart TV : Great picture quality, sound pretty good, slight HDMI issue, lower power consumption

After purchasing this tv with no reviews available due to it being only just released, i took a gamble on purchasing this tv. The tv is such a transformation on my old basic he tv, the colours ‘pop out’ on even mormalntv viewing, but once you play a 4k film. That’s when it comes into it’s own. With the added bonus of having the lights on the sides and top at the rear of the tv ot projects the picture to be even bigger than your viewing, it’s adds a nice touch. The tv is of basic smart apps, but i got this for such a steal on prime day that i can’t complain as i stream my 4k films from apps so it was no biggy to me. The sound is a bit of a let down compared to say the higher brands but again adding a sound bar or in my case having a cinema system makes this a needless complaint for myself, but thought i would be honest if you decide to consider purchasing?overall i’m very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this tv.

 the ambient lighting on this 4k smart tv is of brilliance and unique intelligence by philips. The tv has a sound to light facility with the 3 side ambilight. The ambilight can be set to off, follow video, audio, colour or flag. It has sensational bold deep colours that enhances the picture quality. The installation was smooth and effortless.

Excellent tv at a very good price.

I have purchased this tv having read about it about a year ago and having purchased the 65″ a month earlier and i have never had such a fantastic picture in my life, they are amazing and the ambilight is fantastic for movie night. I am so confident in this tv’s image (and being 4k is no guarantee) and price that i would recommend going to your local tv shop and comparing it against any 4k smart tv (i doubt you can beat the price on here though because i tried) a 5 star tv through and through.

Wow, phillips have changed the tv game forever, people have tried to reinvent the wheel many times and failed, 3d, curved gimmicks etc. But ambilight is actually a new idea that works and adds to any viewing experience. The likes of blue planet 2 and planet earth 2 are incredible on this tv.

Decided to go for this during a black friday sale, i have been looking at oled tv’s but never seemed to want to budget for them especially at the price they are now. I play games and watch films so need a tv that would be suited for both. My main things i looked for with this purchase was screen size, 4k and colour options (hdr etc), motion smoothing and finally no moire. (moire is when something like a striped shirt or chain link fence would cause the screen to look strange and kind of glitchy when fine lines or patterns are displayed)the contrast modes and black levels on this tv are insane, they are as close to oled as i have seen and this is no exaggeration. Obviously, its not oled, so it won’t look like an oled. But going from this to paying for an oled makes little sense to me simply because the black levels are sooo good on this screen. It has a contrast processing mode that you can play about with to get it even darker and more vibrant and not a simple setting such as ‘high contrast on/off’ it has many different levels, and different single adjustments to make. You hardly notice the backlight on the tv when end credits are playing or say for example the netflix logo is shown the screen is as dark as it could possibly be and the netflix logo is very vibrant. It is a seriously good upgrade from my samsung hdtv, that one had poor speakers that distorted with certain pitch sounds, it had a smart tv option but you needed to buy a dongle.

The ambilight is amazing and really enhances the viewing experience and the picture and sound quality are fab. Sometimes the smart features don’t load straight away and we have to change the channel but overall no issues. This is such a high quality tv especially when you consider the price. Its nicer than some tv’s which could easily cost double of what this one did. Will not be going back from ambilight now.

Wanted to upgrade our tv for a while but finally convinced the mrs when we redecorated the lounge. I’ve kept my eye on this tv for some time as the reviews were good and i liked the ambient light feature. I got this when it was on offer and can’t believe how good it is 4k uhd 65 inch for £600 is ridiculous. I’m more then happy so far, the only slight gripe i have with it is the amount of hdmi connections it’s got ‘ 3 ‘ could do with one more, but i knew that before i brought it.

  • Ambilight is not a gimmick it really does add that wow factor!
  • Exceeded already strong expectations
  • Super bright 4k smart tv at an amazing prime day price!

Buy on Amazon

A nice large screen, and actually good value for money. Picture quality is decent enough, but anything other than blu-ray discs looks average. Netflix, amazon video, sky and dvd’s all look okay, but lack the dazzle of more expensive televisions, the sound from the speakers is actually quite good for a thin screen tv. Buy it for its hugeness, not the impressiveness of the pictures. (although ‘blade runner’ ‘batman returns’ and ‘the matrix’ on 4k blu-ray looked astonishing, again that’s down to the source being premium quality not the tv).

The positives:first & foremost a tv should be judged on its picture (& sound) quality and on those two counts you aren’t going to find better for the price. Give this tv a high quality 1080p or 4k source and the results are quite amazing, easily on par with tv’s costing two or three times as much, even the sound, usually atrocious on budget tv’s is very good without a sound bar, far superior to the budget panasonic tv it replaced, so much so that i’ve put on hold a decision to add a sound bar, so that was a pleasant surprise. The ambilight feature is also far more than just a gimmick and really adds to the experience if you position the tv correctly (flat against the wall, ideally mounted on the wall rather than a tv stand). Even the fake ‘hdr’ adds nice depth to the picture, it’s no oled but it’s better than no hdr. The negatives:the user interface and remote control are straight out of budget tv hell. Very slow and clunky, even compared to the ones on my 5yr old panasonic tv, that this replaced. The remote is very cheap feeling, with stiff unresponsive buttons and the fact that the user interface is so s. W in responding to your button presses, you’ll often find the selection you make on screen, lagging two or three button presses behind on the remote, often resulting in you overshooting your desired menu option, meaning you have to keep going back up the menu.

Ordered with amazon prime designated day delivery of saturday, arrived following tuesday, go figure anyway, not the tv’s fault, picture is superb, not the brightest hdr but at this price good enough. The ambilight is broken, only the right hand strip is working, i use a strip of white led’s behind it anyway so i’m not sending it back for that. So for me the most important thing is the picture quality and that bit at least is very good .

Edit: i ended up returning this tv because i couldn’t resolve the frame rate issues. So far the replacement unit seems ok. Got this tv in a sale so i’m pretty happy with what i got for the money. There are positives and negatives though. The good:looks nice on the wallambilight actually works really wellpicture quality is good (4k)a lot of tweaks can be madecheapsimple remoteblacks are very impressive for an lcdcolours are almost eye bleedingno lip sync problemsbright enough hdrthe bad:the picture can look bad (sd & hd)menus are convolutedtoo many tweaks can be madeseems to suffer from frame rate issuessoap opera effect on out of the boxso i went ahead and turned off all of the post processing malarkey and turned down the sharpness all the way and that improved the image immensely. I was still suffereing with very choppy frame rate issues though. I use a ps4 pro for all my content and the tv kept suggesting i put it in game mode. I followed its advice and the frame rate problems vanished. The picture can look bad a times when the image isn’t 4k, but i can’t attest to it too much as all the post processing is off on mine to improve the 4k image, it is a 4k tv after all. In summary it’s a good tv for the price, it’s not all singing all dancing and if you accept that then you’ll be happy with what you get.

Delighted i made this impulse purchase, the price was just too good not to get it. Was a bit on edge about the sound, it’s nots the best, my old philips tv sound was way better, but we have a small sitting room so no need for us to purchase a sound bar. But you would need one if you have a large open area. Our old philips telly had the ambilight on both sides, this has it on 3 side, which looks fantastic against the wall. It’s the reason i won’t go with another brand. Once you have it, your hooked. Haven’t used the apps except for netflix, honestly there is a 99. 9% chance we will never ever use them. So can’t give any feedback on that department.

Quite a nice tv that has so far looked great. The sound isn’t brilliant but good enough that i won’t be getting a soundbar. My only problem with the tv was that i experienced some flickering while watching hdr content but this seems to have been fixed after updating the tv.

Really pleased with it, here’s a breakdown:design:it has thin bezels which improve immersion but rather cheap plastic is used here. This is only really noticed when you get up close to the set so it’s not a big deal. The stand is metal, however, and it feels sturdy. The tv is quite thick when compared to others in it’s price range but i suspect this is because of ambilight. Overall, it’s a smart looking tv. Picture quality:the screen can get impressively bright and the black levels are also excellent. I would recommend fine tuning the picture settings and turning off (or setting to minimum) a lot of the image processing such as ultra resolution and motion style. I set the picture style to standard for normal tv and adjusted the brightness, contrast etc. Uhd and hd video looks very nice and the tv is great for all types of content.

Looked at loads of 50′ tvs in the shops but didn’t see this one, i got this because of the positive reviews on amazon. I was not disappointed picture quality is great and the lighting affect is a real bonus especially if you’re watching a rock concert or something like that, i already had a sound bar but even without it the sound is pretty good better than on my sony. Really pleased with my purchase.

Philips Ambilight 43PUS6754/12 TV 43 inch LED Smart TV (4K UHD, HDR 10+, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, Smart TV) dark silver

The only let down with my purchase is, some of the apps like “all4 and bbciplayer wont open?. I went for this make as philips has always been a trusted name. Im pleased with my purchase for the amazing picture, good enough sound for the bedroom. Not so fussed on the ambient light ( glad u are able to turn it off).

Excellent picture on this tv, and the ambilight really adds a great perspective to films. However only drawback is software, sometimes difficult to actually turn the tv off, and sometimes glitches on apps. I did consider returning because of this, but found regularly turning off at mains seems to alleviate problem, and also anything similar in spec is actually a lot dearer, so great value at the price.

Absolutely amazing tv for the price i paid (£379 black friday deal) coupled with the philips ambilight feature you won’t be disappointed as long as you are prepared to tweak the picture settingsso i had to do a little research online to find the best settings for picture quality as the standard settings do not do the tv justice. I found settings not for this tv but a similar philips tv and used this as a basis then played around further until i was satisfied. I can’t share the website but it’s for the philips pus6272 on the whathifi website. Also the hdr setting is hidden away until you play hdr content so bear this in mind when adjusting your picture setting, i found that hdr vivid is the best setting for this. Once i tweaked, i was very impressed with the tv. Both for watching content and playing video games one my xbox one. The ambilight feature is truly amazing, booted up planet earth 2 on netflix as i had the uhd membership and was blown away by how well it’s integrated into watching tv content, there is a slight lag but it’s not noticeable. As for sound i cannot comment as i used a sound bar straight away. The remote is ok and has a dedicated netflix button which is useful. The smart tv feature has all the usual apps you need – netflix, prime video, iplayer, all4 itvplayer and 5ondemand.

Bought this for my sons bedroom at a black friday price, worth every low cost penny. Good picture, pretty good sound, ambilight is great and plenty of built in apps – all you could need really. Menu is okay but not great for settings etc but not anything to really grumble aboutthe 43 inch size used to be for a main room but it doesn’t look big at all in a bedroom.

This wasn’t an expensive tv, therefore it is very good value for money. Picture quality in light scenes is excellent, but in dark scenes, not so good. As usual with these slimline tvs, the sound quality is not good. Will have to invest in a soundbar. What can i say about the remote?.Overall, for the price i paid, it is very good value for money.

It’s a 4k tv with hdr plus, it will display movies in 4k with hdr just fine, but for xbox one x gaming, you’ll only get the 4k, not the hdr which is a shame. However it was a reasonable price, i paid £329 in the black friday deals. There are more expensive models that would do have hdr in gaming. Where this tv comes into its own when you’ve got the philips hue lighting, which i have some. Set up an entertainment zone and it really does feel like you’ve been sucked into the action. If you just want a 4k tv, you could probably get better, if you’ve invested in the philips hue lighting system, don’t by anything elsealso paired it with a new amazon 4k fire stick, had issues with that and 4k content, but that was due to the settings on that, not on the tv.

I did some research, and this was the best i could afford for the quality of tv. First surprise, the lights in the back, really add to the overall watch quality. It is nice and light, and easy to put the stand on the base. The price is fantastic, plus free next day delivery.It is at least 20£ cheaper than other stores, plus free delivery, where other stores offer next day at 30£. No brainer on the purchase from amazon. The setup of the tv, now here i did have a little problem, but i would have thought it was p. I switched on and went through all the options, then tried to press the netflix button but nothing happened. So went to the home screen and again nothing happened. After a few attempts, i saw at the bottom i hadn’t agreed the terms, to press ok.

The picture and sound quality of this tv is amazing and the ambient light is out of this world. The only downside is that it decided one day that it will no longer be a smart tv. So all apps including netflix and app centre all stopped working even after a reinstall of the tv and reset to factory didn’t help. As of amazon they decided to replace the tv for me. I will see whether the issue will also affect the replacement and update this review.

Since ambilight came out years ago i always thought it was gimmick, but i’ve been so surprised by how good it is. You can of course turn if off if you don’t like it, but i often watch telly with the lights off and i think ambilight comes into it’s own here. Genuinely feel like it is reducing eye strain, but frankly i don’t really care, just really like the way it extends the essence of the picture. The sound has taken a pounding from many reviewers, but i was very pleasantly surprised. I’ve not listened to a tvs speakers at home in years, preferring to run audio through either a 5. Since the smart features are actually pretty good on this, and i was connected via the wrong hdmi port for arc (audio return channel), i found myself checking out the built in speakers. I didn’t buy this for smart features (i normally use a 4th gen apple tv since they allowed prime video), nor for it’s sound, but have been surprised by both. I find myself using both, to the extent where i decided by a new entry level 4k 7.

The display and the ambilight are this tvs two biggest draw cards. It’s a va, back-lit 4k panel. And it’s absolutely stunning for the price. So many other manufacturers have moved to ips, edge-lit, with various local dimming gimmicks and they just don’t look anywhere near as good as this panel. The contrast and black levels are best in class for an led. Where most led panels struggle with hdr source material this panel does not, which is a great achievement for the price. Movement is smooth and it handles fast action without two many artifacts and handles slow movement without judder. The software is basic, but good. Not much in the way of bloatware or apps that you can’t uninstall. The channel browser is linux based, simple and fast.

Purchased on amazon prime day for a £379, the ambilight is great and with a 4k input the screen is impressive, std definition tv on the other hand is terrible and greys look polarised, we stick with hd channels, streaming services and xbox one x and at 1/3 the cost of a top end 4k tv we are happy enough.

Bought this on prime day, so bought it for a great deal, but after getting it would of paid full price. Pictures so good in quality and the lighting behind the tv really makes movies and games pop.

I have a wireless headset and its receiver unit needs to be permanently plugged into the tv headphone socket. However, i found that when the tv was turned on, even though audio out was set to ‘tv speakers’, after about 10 seconds it switched to headphone output, muting the tv speakers. After a while, i found the solution was to set the easylink setting to ‘off’. Really, philips should have a default audio setting irrespective of whether easylink is set to on or off. Apart from that, so far i have found the tv to be absolutely brilliant, and what a low price.

It looks like the tv requires a polarised figure 8 mains cable (one side squared), and several reviews mentioned this. Even though the cable included looks like it will not fit, it actually fits if you push it in using a little force (this is from philips official customer service). I was misled by some reviews saying the cable was wrong, it wasn’t. If the cable you received is the same attached in picture, it is the correct one even there is no squared side on it. The tv itself is very good, ambient light is definitely a plus.

Old samsung broke 46′ led that cost £799 five years ago. I was concerned that i may get an inferior tv but now feel silly as it blows the old one away. I am not yet able to put on the wall as you can see in photo due to thread size in back of tv is smaller than samsung was. All in all my best buy for a number of years. Hard to believe there is a better tv out there for less than £1000. If you haven’t got hdr get it and even better with ambilight. 55′ model is ideal from four meters away.

Anyone looking for more needs to drop more dollar because this baby is mint. If you’re worried about the backlighting, it can be turned off, wife loves it as it draws her imperfect eyesight into the picture i’m not fussed one way or another, but will use it as disco lighting for house parties because it can follow audio. The interface is a bit slow, but who doesn’t use a console or skybox for the majority of their content. Nice to have netflix et-al there at a button press if needs be.

I bought this tv on amazon prime day and got a great price. I was a bit wary of buying it as i’m usually not a philips fan but the price was good and decided to give it a try. The first thing i noticed was the size ( lovely big screen ) and secondly how light it was to lift. Once turned on it was very easy to set up and internet connection was so quick and easy. Once i learned how to navigate the settings and finding where everything was , i then went to work on the picture settings to get the best possible viewing experience. I tweaked the settings bit at a time taking in what everything does until i got a vibrant very clear and sharp picture. Next i did the same with the sound settings which has a handy little graphic equalizer to tweak. I now had the picture and sound i hoped to get. I also bought a sound bar and connected that which enhanced the sound , this too connected very quickly via wireless. One thing i can’t find which possibly lets this tv down is bluetooth which is why i took a star off my rating.

Wps did not work at first so had to input the wpa key, no worries and got online. Streaming is good and through the wifi is very smooth. Let me warn you now that some films are super smooth if you have never seen a hd tv like this, it can take some getting used to. Watch lotr on netflix and you will see what i mean. When it tuned in initially snooker was on bbc hd which was great to fix the colours, they are to vivid imo so i dulled them a bit. The ambilight the nicest surprise. What a great thing to have, i can’t see me going back since it adds another dimension watching films. The interface is a bit clunky but seems like a fair trade off for the price. Managed to stream some movies files via dnla , i used the philips app for that – app isn’t the greatest so have patience. I made put the tv on static ip via the router to help connect all the time.
