Philips 55PUS6401


The generously specified Philips 55PUS6401 is a budget 4K flatscreen with HDR (High Dynamic Range) compatibility and Ambilight. This 6 Series model is the largest in a family of three at 55 inches. It's joined by the 49-inch 49PUS6401 and 43-inch...

There are many reasons to buy this TV, but they don't include proper blacks and HDR performance.

Philips 55PUS6401 review


A well-priced mid-range 4K TV which benefits from Ambilight. There are a few picture quality flaws, but there's also a lot to like about this Android-based TV. Here's our Philips 55PUS6401 review

Overall, the 6401 is just a few caveats short of being a cracking mid-range UHD buy. For the most part, 2160p definition, colour vibrancy and an aggressive feature set should tick enough boxes to satisfy those stepping up from a 1080p telly. There are...

Great tv


I bought this TV to replace my plasma set. The plasma was eating electric and acting like a radiator in my living room so I decided to go led. Great picture when watching HD but it doesn't upscale non HD unlike my other set. Overall I am happy with...

Bought this and the 49" - not disappointed!


I bought this and absolutely love it. The ambilight is a lovely feature that takes a little getting used to, but is brilliant! The only let down is sound quality, I'm off to buy a soundbar shortly - but this is the case with most thin TVs as there just...

Absolutely amazing!


This tv is amazing. I have never used Philips before as I have had some preconceptions about their ability to make a decent tv that would do the job. After purchasing this tv I take it all back. It is sleek, smart and does exactly what I want and the...
