A new level of screen brilliance – Mini LED TV
Mini LED technology pushes the boundaries of LED TV tech. By making the individual LED backlights much smaller, a larger number of them can be implemented. More individual LED lights means more, independently dimmable zones. The 65PML9506 actually has over a thousand zones, all independently adjusted for brightness. This gives a big uplift in contrast, brightness and detail, making picture quality more vivid and lifelike than ever.
Expanded vision with Ambilight 4-sided
This unique Philips technology enjoys its ultimate incarnation, with 4-sided Ambilight. Using intelligent LEDs all around 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, with this extraordinary Philips 65 inch TV.
P5 AI Perfect Picture Engine
The P5 AI Perfect Picture engine is the ‘brain’ behind the picture and even ‘thinks’ in a similar way to us. The powerful processor uses deep-learning AI algorithms to get the most lifelike images possible. Maximising detail, colour realism and smooth motion, the P5 AI engine optimises the Mini LED and Ambilight for a brilliant performance.
Gaming made better
With HDMI 2.1 connectivity at its heart, the Philips 65PML9506 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 beginning game play. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and FreeSync are supported, giving you the fastest and smoothest response possible. Unique to Philips, Ambilight’s gaming mode brings another dimension of immersion.
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 65PML9506 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.
Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 65” 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, the Philips 65PML9506 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.
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, Disney+ 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 (Works with Amazon Alexa).
Beautiful design – right down to the leather-backed remote
Fashioned from high quality materials and styled to a premium standard, the Philips 65PML9506 stands out from the crowd. The feet’s polished metal edges contrast beautifully with the brushed metal bezel. The quality of design even extends to the remote control, which features a tactile, Muirhead leather-backed finish and backlit keys.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yusuflimz from Almost Perfect The big question with Mini LED is its comparison to the fancy pants OLED. Pleased to say that had I had a blind test, I would not be able to tell the difference. Side by side with an OLED the blacks are beautiful. No doubt that Philips ambilight technology is second to none. For someone like me with sensitive vision, the ambient light really softens the viewing experience especially in a dark room. It also makes the TV seem much larger than it is and really enhances movies, and gameplay. Picture quality is nothing short of stunning. Some of the picture modes are a little warm for my liking but subjectively I found the Medium setting perfect. I'm not sure if the feet were designed with the Sonos beam in mind but the Beam fits beneath the TV perfectly if you install the included taller feet. Amazing! Why almost perfect? If you do have an AppleTV and or surround sound setup which uses eArc, you're in for a bad time. Setting the AppleTV to match Source frame rate under Dolby vision blacks the TV out every 10 seconds or every second sometimes. Highly disappointing. Philips seem to have corrected this issue on older TVs with a firmware update but still no date on when this one could get fixed. eArc surround is a disaster as the TV plays sounds through the wrong speakers. Not sure how Philips got this so badly wrong. This is not such a niche use case but if you're using the TV without AppleTV or eArc you'll be chuffed. Richer sounds experience was absolutely brilliant. Ordered, next day delivery, email notifications throughout keeping me in the loop. Follow up phone call from delivery making sure everything was okay, pricing was the best on the market, 6 year guarantee, why bother anywhere else?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sharon333 from Great features, great sound, Ambilight fab! Two weeks only but all good so far. Led is not not a patch on Plasma for picture quality/depth of field previously used to - so lamenting passing of Plasma somewhat.
