Philips 65PFL9708 9000 Series 4K TV review - Pocket-lint


That price, 4K picture amazing with right source content, ambilight technology a real highlight and point of difference, lots of user control to tweak picture styles (inc. ISF presets), booming sound quality, well built and good looking set, smart...

Upscaling of some content is crude, slow menu system needs tweaking, clouding visible in some over-bright settings presets, no ambilight from bottom edge, some time-out and auto-off issues, are we ready for 4K in the UK yet?

There’s a chicken and egg thing going on with 4K. People are keen on the idea - as are we - but the delivery of native Ultra HD content lacks. Well, it’s as good as non-existent in the consumer space for now. And while that should be a huge minus...

Philips 65PFL9708 review


And so the price war begins with this stunning 4K TV from Philips

Mostly excellent picture quality ; Ground-breaking price ; Effective Ambilight configuration ; Good audio

Set up requires extreme care ; Processing can be over-ambitious ; Limited viewing angle ; Limited online content

Philips isn't generally associated with aggressive value - at least when you're talking about the upper reaches of its TV range.

Philips 65PFL9708 TV eyes-on: 4K is here and it looks stunning with Ambilight - Pocket-lint


We knew that a Philips 4K television was on the way, but the company has been somewhat coy when it's come to the details. Wait no longer, as the IFA electronics

One of the cheapest 4K TVs out there, but it isn't as futureproof as the competition

Philips 65PFL9708S


Philips delivers the biggest UHD/4K bargain yet

Excellent UHD/4K picture quality ; Good audio quality ; Ambilight works great on such a large TV

Picture settings need handling with great care ; Philips' online service is second rate ; Upscaled images look noisy using Philips presets

Finally, we didn’t see much benefit from the TV’s noise reduction systems. They’re utterly unnecessary and actually quite damaging with native UHD content, and even with upscaled sources we often felt they were doing more harm than good. There’s much...

Philips 65PFL9708


A fine 4K TV that's full of pros and with only a few cons. A real contender

Excellent detail with HD and UHD ; Good upscaling from SD ; Punchy whites ; Ambilight

Tricky to finesse picture ; Hit-and-miss motion ; Blacks lack depth ; Limited smart apps

Look past the state of the Philips PFL9708’s smart offering, though, and it’s actually one of the best 4K TVs we've seen. And it also happens to be the cheapest, which is another string to its bow…

Philips 65PFL9708 4K TV review - hands on


The Philips PFL9708 looks the business and costs significantly less than its rivals

With the 65in 65PFL9708 due to go on sale in the UK at £4,500, and in no less than a few weeks, TP Vision has one of the least expensive 4K TVs on the market. From what we've seen, it has plenty of features that ensure Full HD content looks superb at...

Philips 65PFL9708S 4K Ultra HD TV Review


Philips joins the 4K Ultra HD market with their new 65PFL9708S flagship TV. It has an attractive price but what about the performance?

Excellent colour and greyscale accuracy ; Impressive video processing ; Reference 3D performance ; Excellent screen uniformity ; Solid build quality ; Comprehensive set of connections ; Decent audio perforemance ; Attractive price

Some minor banding ; Occasional motion artefacts ; Smart platform still limited

The Philips 65PFL9708 is a very welcome addition to the ranks of new 4K Ultra HD TVs on the market. It's design might seem rather pedestrian but in all honesty we prefer the simple gun metal bezel and unfussy stand and it's good to see that it can...
