Philips 55PFS6609 TV review

 

Although Philips televisions have a reputation for being inscrutable, the brand appears to have reined in its loopy picture processing predilections considerably with this 55-incher. Now you really don't need to tweak overmuch to get a picture...

Overall, this 6 Series Philips has much going for it. Both sound and vision are a cut above the norm and while it wouldn't be our top choice if connected Smart functionality was top priority, or we wanted a screen specifically optimized for sports,...

Philips 55PFS6609

 

Stick with HD content and the Philips dazzles with confidence, but rivals offer better performance for a better price

Excellent with high-def content ; Bright and crisply detailed picture ; Punchy colours and highlights ; Stable motion ; Ambilight

Upscaling could be better ; Muddled sound quality ; Remote is cheap and sluggish to use

We’re left with mixed emotions on the 6609. On one hand, it’s not as good with standard-def content and it can be sluggish to use.
