Philips 49PUS6401 review


This likeable 4K screen packs in the technology and doesn't cost a fortune...

4K and HDR ; Exciting, punchy screen ; Bright and vibrant colour palette ; Plenty of crisp detail ; Ambilight is a fun feature ; Good price

Colours can be a bit overblown ; Black depth could be deeper and subtler ; Patchy backlighting ; Limited catch-up services ; No HDR support for Netflix

If you love Ambilight, 4K and HDR, this well-priced 49in Philips will impress you with its talents
