Philips 65PUS8901 Ambilux TV


At an IFA 2015 show rather short on spectacular bits of AV tech, Philips' first Ambilux TV shines out like a beacon in the night. Literally.

Philips 65PUS8901 review


Pricey, but this Philips 4K TV is all about the Ambilux...

Bright and sharp picture ; Vibrant and dynamic colour palette ; Decent sound quality ; Easy to use ; Ambilux feature is immersive and fun

Black depth and subtlety is lacking ; Backlighting and motion stability issues ; Complicated menus ; No 3D ; Pricey

A pricey set with a vivid – albeit uncompetitive – picture, but the Ambilux feature is a highlight

Philips 65PUS8901 AmbiLux 4K UHD TV review


Is this fusion of projection and 4K UHD really such a bright idea?

Amazing, room-filling lighting ; HDMI HDCP 2.2 compatibility ; 4K Netflix and Amazon Video ; Decent audio for its size

Buggy Android TV platform ; Awaiting firmware update for HDR ; Suffers from motion artefacts

With designer good looks, admirably bonkers lighting system and vibrant picture quality, Philips first AmbiLux UHD TV is something else.

Hands on: Philips 65PUS8901 AmbiLux review


Has Philips just created the finest gaming TV around?

Great projection effect ; Slim chassis ; Superbly different

Not the greatest panel ; Sure to be super-expensive

Philips AmbiLux 65PUS8901 TV review - hands on


Incredible rear-firing projectors make films and games jump out of the screen on Philips' latest TV

The Ambilux is set to arrive in the UK and throughout Europe towards the end of the year. There's no word on cost yet, but it's looking highly likely it will fall towards the top end of Philips' price structure. Either way, we can't wait to get it home...
