Philips 65PUS8601

 

Philips' new Ambilux technology might have hogged the IFA headlines, but the Dutch brand also had another innovative – and potentially affordable – TV series up its sleeve in the shape of the PUS8601s.

Philips 65PUS8601 review

 

Ambilight tech and detachable speakers make this Philips 4K TV something quite different...

Good detail and strong contrast ; Customisable sound ; HDR update to come

Lacks subtle colour and black detail ; Menus are difficult to use

As an overall package, the Philips 65PUS8601 offers something quite different; in terms of picture quality, it is only a few steps short of five stars
