Philips 50PFL7956H

 

Philips attempts to make its 21:9-ratio TVs more mainstream with a set that also marks the brands' first foray into passive 3D technology

Watching films in 21:9 never grows old ; Crosstalk-free 3D ; Very good with 2D, too

Some sources don’t lend themselves to 21:9 expansion ; It’s expensive by normal 50in TV standards ; Ambilight looks a bit awkward

Philips 50PFL7956T review

 

There aren't that many 21:9 televisions on the market, but this Philips LCD is the best one we've seen so far

Physically impressive ; superb detail ; strong contrast ; ‘Easy 3D’ is just that

Ours had some backlight bleed ; not great for gamers ; iffy online picture quality

We’re not exactly spoilt for 21:9 choice, but nevertheless this is the best implementation we’ve seen

Philips 50PFL7956H review

 

If there was any doubt that Philips is one of the most innovative TV brands at work today, it's been emphatically eradicated by the first two TVs we've seen from the brand's belated 2011/202 range. First there was the 46PFL9706T, which used its...

The 21:9 shape works brilliantly for films; 2D and 3D pictures are both mostly very good; features galore

Crosstalk when viewed off-axis; black levels could be better

Philips 50PFL7956T review

 

Philips' ultra-widescreen Edge LED TV sets the gold standard for movies

Fabulous CinemaScope treatment of Blu-ray ; Manageable size for living room ; Affordable 3D glasses ; Built-in speakers ; Detailed images

21:9 zoom can go awry on 16:9 footage ; Net TV underwhelms ; Lacks ultimate contrast ; Ambilight too separated ; Picture can look processed

This LED TV may have unusual, almost unique, dimensions that lend it an almost futuristic appearance.

Gold 21:9 50PFL7956 LED TV

 

Extra-wide cinema format and ambient lighting offer a unique and special TV experience. The frame and base made of brushed aluminium lend this device a sophisticated look.
