Ambilight vision – only from Philips
Unique to Philips, Ambilight technology expands the picture’s presence, giving a more immersive and engaging experience. With intelligent LEDs around three sides of this 43 inch Philips 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.

Gaming made better
With HDMI 2.1 connectivity at its heart, the Philips 43PUS8556 has many features that makes it the ideal choice for gaming. Once connected to one of the two HDMI 2.1 compatible sockets, a low latency mode is automatically selected when begining game play.

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 43PUS8556 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the Philips TV. Paul at Richer Sounds Croydon was extremely understanding and helpful. He arranged to exchange my Samsung TV which had problems with the Philips. Very many thanks Paul and the team at Croydon store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all rounder for a great price I bought the 43" TV in April and it has been a fantastic addition to the house. The picture quality is great and the Ambilight feature really enhances the experience. Pretty easy to set up and the navigation is decent. I can't really comment on the sound quality as I bought a Sonos Beam soundbar to give the audio the extra edge and it has been sensational with the eARC connectivity. I have had to play around with the setting to get the results for the picture, for example, you can turn off Motion Smooth and enhance the contrast. In general, the picture quality is excellent, however, some broadcasts push the TV to its limits and the "Soap Opera" effect is evident but it can be reduced with the settings. The Philllips 43PUS8556 is well built, very sturdy and I have the stand on a swivel so I can slightly move the screen. For the price, you get what you pay for, I wasn't expecting the high-end sound and vision. I wanted a mid-range TV that delivers the goods and it does just that.
