Philips 58PFL9956H new 21:9 active 3D TV first look


Philips' latest flagship 21:9-ratio TV looks set to renew our love affair with the ultra-wide format. It's just a shame that still nobody is selling native 21:9 Blu-rays.

Still, while this stopped the 58PFL9956H’s pictures from being absolutely perfect during our session with it at IFA, overall our time spent with Philips’ new movie-loving TV has most certainly got those now-familiar ‘width envy’ juices flowing once again.
