Unique 3-sided Ambilight for expansive viewing
With increased colour accuracy and detail, Philips’ unique Ambilight system is more impressive than ever. The 3-sided Ambilight uses intelligent LEDs around the top and sides the TV, casting colour from the picture 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, with this extraordinary Philips 55 inch TV.

With punchy processing power, the Philips P5 (Gen 5) Engine delivers the ideal picture – whatever the source. Enjoy deep blacks, bright 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.

Multi-format HDR support, including Dolby Vision and HDR10+ for a stunning picture from all sources
For wide-ranging picture enhancement, the Philips 55PUS8897 offers Dolby Vison and multi-format HDR support. This includes the sophisticated HDR10+. HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology. Each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments.

Gaming made better
The 55PUS8897 models take Philips’ expertise with gaming to an even higher level. Game Bar lets you adjust the picture settings whilst gaming is in progress. With support for VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and 4K@120Hz refresh rate, you get a great gaming experience with exceptionally low input lag. Unique to Philips, Ambilight’s gaming mode brings another dimension of immersion.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With Dolby Atmos decoding, the Philips 55PUS8897 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 Dolby Bass Enhancement for a richer sound.

Compatible with DTS Play-Fi Home Theatre
The Philips 55PUS8897 is one of the first TVs to be compatible with the innovative DTS Play-Fi Home Theatre system. When using the DTS Play-Fi app, this lets you integrate the TV into a home cinema speaker system, using the TV as the centre channel. Wireless surround sound doesn’t get much easier or more flexible than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phillips Ambilight TV Always great service from the Boscombe Team they know there stuff
Date published: 2023-04-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Philips tv with a couple of issues I find this Philips tv to be generally excellent although it’s not perfect. I’ll get the couple of issues out of the way. SD content is quite poor as the picture becomes really soft and is difficult to watch. Another issue is the lack of direct option to increase/decrease backlighting. There are a lot of options to tweak the picture although brightness/backlighting isn’t one of them and that’s a shame as sometimes the picture can need this adjustment. The good points far outweigh the couple of issues. HD/UHD is excellent especially UHD. The couloirs are bright and clear and this makes gaming on this tv really excellent. The ambilight gives depth to the picture. There’s a lot of options for tweaking picture and sound, this tv can connect to DTS play fi which is a great perk. Sound is good for flatscreen tv. After using Samsung tv’s over the years it’s been interesting to see how the Philips compares. I think the Philips does 99%of it’s features excellenty with the only issues I’ve had are the ones mentioned.All in all an excellent tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Richer Sounds Whichever tv/audio you want to buy, use RS. I have for nearly 30 years and will never change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I've owned this set for several weeks and I can definitely recommend it. Picture quality is very good, I've piped the audio into an AV receiver though I did notice while setting things up the internal speakers in the set are particularly good and it would be quite acceptable standalone. The remote responds instantly, setup was easy and the TV looks great- visitors are commenting on it. Ambilight is a nice feature, when the TV is off I use the ambilight as mood lighting in the living room. The delivery crew were helpful and polite and this TV isn't too heavy so it was easy to install single handed.
