Expert review by : John Archer (

Philips 43PUS6501


The 43-inch 43PUS6501 is Philips' latest attempt to dominate the budget 4K TV market. Available from Currys for just £499, it offers a two-sided version of Philips' unique Ambilight technology, as well as HDR playback and the Android TV smart platform.

The 43PUS6501 clings to just enough of Philips’ traditional processing, colour and clarity qualities to stand out from the budget crowd. To be clear, though – if it was priced even £50 higher, you’d be looking at an overall mark of 3 stars only.
