Dolby Vision and Ambilight make the Philips 43PUS8555 a compact TV with a big spec.

Ambilight 3-sided for unique vision
Unique to Philips, Ambilight technology expands the picture’s presence, giving a more immersive and engaging experience. With intelligent LEDs around the top and sides of the TV, colour from the picture is cast into the room – in real time. Colour, vibrancy and excitement move beyond the screen and into your living room to bring you a viewing experience beyond the ordinary.

Philips P5 Perfect Picture Engine delivers stunning image quality
With huge processing power, the Philips P5 Engine delivers the best picture possible – whatever the source. Enjoy the deepest blacks and the brightest whites, the most vivid, brilliant colours and natural, lifelike skin tones. You also get Philips’ most fluid, razor sharp pictures with incredible detail and depth, in sport, movie, or any other genres - every time and from any source.

HDR optimised, with HDR10+
For the highest quality picture, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology to date. With HDR10+ each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments. The 43PUS8555 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 43” TV is also compatible with Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas around the world. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With Dolby Atmos decoding, this Philips 43 inch TV has the potential to deliver a more immersive sound with a truly cinematic feel. Other sound enhancements include Clear Dialogue for enhanced speech, Night mode for reduced dynamic volume and Bass Enhancement for a richer sound.

Android TV for smart TV
In a complicated world of catch-up TV, Android TV makes sense of it all. Using a clear, intuitive interface, Android lets you effortlessly switch between Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and many other services. Android lets you pick up where you left off in the latest series or check out new movie releases – all without getting lost within complicated menus.

Voice control with built-in Google Assistant and works with Alexa
Working via the built-in Android system, Google Assistant helps you find content, apps and even controls compatible smart home devices, such as the Philips Hue lighting system. All this is available by simple voice command. Alternatively, connect your Amazon Echo or similar Alexa device and use voice commands via Alexa.

Sleek design – with swivel stand
With its metal finish bezel, the 43PUS8555 exudes quality. The swivel stand lets you get the perfect viewing angle – avoiding annoying reflections in the room.

Handy, QWERTY remote
Flip the remote over and you’ll find a very handy QWERTY keypad. Perfect for entering passwords or for entering text on search engines and websites, this thoughtful feature saves a huge amount of time compared with using a shared numeric keypad.

Fully connected
Four HDMI sockets make it easy to connect a Blu-ray player, games console, TV set-top box and other device. All sockets are HDMI 2.0 version with HDCP 2.3, making this TV compatible with UHD Blu-ray players and 4K HDR streaming services. Other connections include twin USB sockets, featuring recording to a compatible USB device. Throw in an optical connection for a soundbar/base plus headphone socket and you've everything you need from your new TV.

A top quality TV, in a compact size, the Philips 43PUS8555 is a premium choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great, all-round, modern television In simple terms, this is a great, all-round, modern television at a reasonable price. The silver styling is more distinctive than the majority. Set-up is a joy and really staightforward. Picture and sound are as you would expect from a quality, 43" HDR television; stunning. There's nothing gimmicky in the operation of menus and TV services. It all works well, with no lag or glitches. The combination of Ambilight and the ability to turn the screen on its robust, well-designed base is a nice touch in a big room. Ambilight certainly adds something special to movie-nights and gaming sessions. I'm sure you can pay more and get more from a 43" HDR TV, but if you just want a telly that works and plays all the stuff most of us need, this could be the perfect choice for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality smart TV with Ambilight I am very pleased with my purchase and, having done my research beforehand, I was not disappointed. I hadn't experienced the Ambilight feature before so arranged to see it by way of an in-store viewing. This is my first 'smart' TV and I like having most things built-in and available at the touch of a button. It was easy to set-up and connect to my other equipment and I liked the ability to personalise the names of the HDMI connections to aid selection when using them. The swivel stand is useful for altering viewing angles and has a classy feel to it. There are numerous settings that can be chosen to suit your personal vision and sound preferences and I like the feature that allows you to add more web-Apps. The sound is good on its own, but benefits from more bass via a soundbar/sub-woofer for films etc. The picture quality is crystal clear when viewing Netflix or i-player type services via the internet (I only use a wireless connection and have had no issues of quality reduction). I like the 'watch from the start' or 'pause live TV' options when viewing supported TV channels via Freeview Plus. The built in Freeview HD channels don't always load - I'm guessing due to my aerial performance / reception - but when they do , those too are sharp. I have not tried 4K viewing yet as it is rare via Freeview live TV and I would need to upgrade my Netflix to benefit, but to be honest, the quality is so good on Freeview HD, or via my plugged in HD satellite receiver, that I might not even bother. Overall, this strikes me as a well-made, good quality TV that offers pretty well all you would need and I think it represents good value for money for this size set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, modern, well equipped I purchased this 43" Philips Ambilight in the August bank holiday weekend sale after having researched it's features and previously speaking with Richer Sounds staff prior to my lockdown viewing appointment. The in-store demo, albeit on a different size Ambilight TV and a comparison with another (Panasonic) TV was a close run thing, as all my other gear was Panasonic and both 43" models were in the sale, but I'm so glad I went for the Philips Ambilight model. Delivery was a week later and set up was fairly straightforward. It fits really well in a recessed wall area, but may not be so pleasing if continuously spreading out on a larger flat wall (?) On the whole, picture quality is exceptional, sound good without soundbar/sub-woofer, but enhanced with it, especially for more bass on movies. The Panasonic is better for its quick info "i" button when looking at channel info and remaining time etc., but this is only a small criticism of the Philips model. Loving my first 'smart' TV and it's 6-year Richer Sounds guarantee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ambilight + Smart TV = amazing Received this TV from richer sounds a few weeks back, they recommend a wall mount for me too and I bought that - perfect choice! The TV itself is amazing, quite lightweight, just what I was looking for since I mainly wanted it for streaming apps! The fact that's it's an android TV is a huge bonus (has all apps like Netflix, Disney+, prime video, Spotify etc). The sound quality is good enough for me! I personally can't fault the picture quality either! The in built Internet browser is a bit temperamental and sometimes causes the TV to freeze but besides that, no other issues so far :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture and sound We bought the 8555 to replace an old, slightly smaller Philips ambilight tv. We feel that the ambilight system really enhances the viewing experience. The tv is positioned on a wall bracket in the corner of our main bedroom. The 8555 is framed by a narrow silver bezel and is a slim and relatively light tv. We are very pleased with all aspects of the tv, especially the picture and sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV. Easy to set up. My first experience with a Philips Ambilight TV and was not disappointed. Ended up re-decorating the room to get the most out of the effect. Great picture, great features and the keyboard on the back of the remote is a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from greatly surprised It a good looking TV, the stand solid and well made gives you about 45% rotation ease to use with lots of source input ability's Amberligth takes a bit of getting use to, but you can turn it off. only disappointment was that you cant seem to load Now TV app. Had older Now TV white box works well with TV, as they are going to be phased out, got a new stick type which TV doesn't like much WIFI poor, may have hard wire TV to hub to make it reliable, useful this TV has that opion.
