See the incredible difference Ambilight makes, with the Philips 50PUS8555.

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 50PUS8555 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 50” 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 50 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 50PUS8555 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 4k TV, and especially impressed with the Amb Really pleased with the Phillips. Picture quality is good, even without a 4k source, and the Ambilight feature is excellent. I thought it might be a bit of a gimmick, but it really adds to the immersion. Great value as always, especially with the 6 yr warranty from Richer Sounds. RECOMMENDED

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality TV with high in features. Bought this Philips TV to replace a Sony TV. We've had it for a couple weeks, easy to setup, good Idea to setup the quality of the picture settings to your liking. Little bit disappointed that you can't control the volume from the remote for the Audio out from headphone socket. Saying that, the Audio on this TV is so amazing through built-in speakers. Easy manoeuvring through the Apps and there's quite a few. Also helped by having the keyboard on the back of the remote control. Would definitely recommend this Philips TV for all it's features and excellent picture quality, the Ambient lighting performs an enjoyable experience in night time big movie watching.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creates the right atmosphere! Bought for our snug. Decided to make a cinema games room. TV provides a super sound quality, ambient lighting which can also work with music if you want a mini disco. Richer sounds provided a 6 year cover free with the TV which gives you confidence with the product and company.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good TV but some issues The TV does not come with any operating instructions. The Ambilight feature is good and adds some atmosphere especially at night time. While my Moto G7 phone can find the TV via bluetooth the TV does not find the phone which is very annoying. It is, however, easy to Cast my phone to the TV. Sometimes the TV dies not find the internet connection even though the router is working correctly. The TV picture is excellent and the sound is reasonable for most purposes. The Freeview Play app works well but could do with improvement and while on many TV buttons for settings do not work or not work as expected. Overall I like the TV

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed at picture qaulity I chose a smaller screen TV initially, which was my mistake. Without fuss or any difficulty I arranged to upgrade to this larger screen size. Richer Sounds could not have been more helpful. This model fits the space available and to my surprise has backdrop lighting which enhances the viewing with amazing success. I am delighted with this upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moved into the modern era with 4k TV! Tried to research before purchasing and was guided by store towards 1 of 3 of the back-lit sets I was after. It was the best spec for the price due to it being recently userped by a newer albeit lesser model. Very happy with ease of set-up, connectivity and picture quality. It's not an OLED but it wasn't OLED price! Glad I made the jump to 50" even though it has meant big re-arrangements to the living room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great screen clarity, quality remote Very good picture and sound. Remote has keyboard on the back so handy for inputs. Ambilight is just a great feature, if you’ve not had it you won’t miss it, we have 4 Philips tv’s in the house simply due to this feature

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ambilight is fantastic, great picture, great sound A terrific value TV with all the bells and whistles you would want unless you're opting for OLED or next-gen gaming connections. Only slight downside is the signal for standard Freeview channels is a lot worse with this TV than my 8 year old run-of-the-mill LED TV. Hoping a cheap signal booster will do the trick. Probably won't be an issue for most.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for your buck We have been using it for a few weeks and we are very happy with the picture quality at the price range. Ambilight is a great addition to the experience. The sound is a bit underwhelming and a the panel is a bit reflective in a bright environment. Overall great bang for your buck

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture and ambient effect Never had Philips before, but very impressed with picture quality. The ambient effect is great for live sports. All usual extras as you’d expect such as Netflix, but not had a proper play with the other features. Would recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so good for premium line of Philips Before I bought it I've done some research. It is Philips only by name. Made by Chinese company TP vision to which Philips sold its display division back in 2012. Materials used are definitely not premium and got sort of cheap feel comparing to my Samsung 6 series from 2014. Android tv is a great feature. UHD looks good when watching YT sample videos (info pops up in the bottom right corner that it is uhd/hdr/dolby etc signal) so be aware because some videos have it only in the title but not actually HDR signal. Upgraded my Netflix to premium so I can watch 4k movies. Dolby vision in my opinion doesn't work good on this TV. Picture goes darker and brighter in some scenes which could be annoying. Maybe needs to be calibrated but as amateur I expected it to be ready out of the box on factory settings. I'm really missing pointer feature from samsung/LG remotes. That small keyboard on the back of this remote is OK but not easy for bigger fingers. Should be one more USB. You can plug in some old PC camera and it should work (works for me) so you can use Google duo communicator. If you a Google person it is great, not sure about apple. Tv froze on one occasion so far where I had to pull the plug out to reset it. Software was updated after first plugging in and singing on to Google account. Ambilight is a very nice feature but not a deal breaker for me. Overall I could have fork out bit more for a sony one however I'm still happy. Service and communication from richer sounds excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ambilight is the best Really happy with our purchase. It’s a very good tv. Picture is nice and sharp, colours vivid and bright especially watching 4K content. There is slight motion blur and I do mean slight, and not off putting. The sound is good as others have mentioned although I do toggle between built in sound and 5.1 set up. Just depends what I’m watching. If it’s normal tv I just leave it coming from the tv. The remote is nice and simple with the added qwerty keyboard on the reverse. Buttons have a nice click. Definitely the best feature is Philips ambilight. It’s not a gimmick as some people think. It’s hard to explain but it’s fantastic. You can customise is too to find what works for you/room. It can also be turned off which I have found doing in the daytime as direct sunlight in the room goes against it. Or have a custom colour as a flat light. Overall it’s a well made simple to use tv. Did I mention the ambilight is quite good too?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous TV I am so pleased that I decided on this Philips! Everything about it is top notch. Picture superb, connectivity superb, ambilight brilliant, usability effortless. Ignore reviews who say that it tilts back - they have set up the stand incorrectly - and it is a very easy job! Great looking quality chrome stand that swivels - perfect. Highly recommended and I cannot imagine a better TV - I watch lots of football and golf and the picture is faultless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Purchase An excellent TV for the price purchased. The sound is good, picture quality excellent. My only minor gripe is that it doesnt have teletext, but I guess most new tv's wont as well.
