Philips Ambilight 58PUS7805/12 Reviews
Stopped working in 8 months
Unfortunately this tv was a defective Philips 65 tv I played a round with settings but a green line kept on comeing down the middle of the screen Evan tried factory rest no joy at all with the green line at all so I contacted
Theseller and they wear more than happy too help with the return of this tv for me I asked for a refund not a problem with that one so it’s been passed back too Amazon for a full refund as yet I have no refund and still awaiting for this I will up date more soon thank you UPDATE: refund policies are fast easy thank you Amazon for the refund
Cheap and Cheerful
Since day one I had nothing but issues. First with amazon after they delivered my a 50 inch rather than the 70. That took about 3 weeks to sort out. I didn't use the TV for the first 4 months as I had bought a house and was waiting till I moved in to us it. It's been in use about a year now and it's always been slow, the remote has been dodgy and the sound quality was rubbish so I bought a sound bar to help it out. I do love the ambilight feature but that's about it. Wouldn't buy another Phillips TV just down to this one. If you want something to last this isn't it and I will soon be replacing this as there is no way I'll get any life out of this thing.Johnny
Okay, this isn't an expensive telly, in fact its quite cheap as your getting a lot of telly!
It is my first 4K telly, I don't watch a lot of TV and it was bought really only as a monitor for my PlayStation 4 Pro and my XBox series X.
I love the Ambilight feature, it works great. The TV itself has a good selection of all the top apps you'd expect to find on a smart TV.
Options are easy to navigate
All in for the money I believe you'd have a hard time beating it.
However, on day one within a few minutes of turning it on I found a flaw thats seriously annoyed me almost everytime I use it, a dead pixel slap bang in the centre of the screen. Not good at all.
Overall I suppose I'll just have to put up with it.
That flaw aside im pretty impressed.
Terrible software let's this down
Excellent picture quality and pretty good sound, don't know what Philips were thinking about the operating system though, its terrible, has crashed a few times (there are quite a few firmware updates though)
Personally, buy this and use as a display only, connect an Nvidia Shield and you have a great combo.
Does lack Disney channel though in the apps.
Great TV, but sometimes laggy with TV apps
Absolutely love this TV. Only downside is if you are trying to use Netflix, YouTube ,Amazon prime, basically apps on the Tv it lags now and then and the controls will stop working if you are trying to fast forward or rewind for awhile in a movie or anything that's long. So now I've just stopped using the apps on TV and just using my Xbox to watch everything on again. But other than that it looks and sounds great! Would definitely recommendDan H
Excellent picture quality, the OS sucks though
Where to begin. I have a brand new Panasonic, which I know to be inferior to this TV. It took about 10 minutes to set up.Setting up the Ambilight was ponderous but managed it with Alexa paired.
An enjoyable evening ensued.
Fast forward to this morning .I got a message saying new remote software was available. Trying to download this I was told my (brand new batteries were low on charge.Different (new) batteries got the same response.
Googling came up with the fix to unplugremote and TV for 3 mins.I did, and the result was a dead remote - nothing - stuck on one programme.Phoned Amazon and after some discussion, she rang Philips.We waited 25 mins but there was no response.She asked if I could give here details to replace remote.I said there was little I could say.She then offered a complete refund for TV.
Having gone thru nightmare of returning a HISENSE TV which arrive with large cracks, I could not go thru all that again.While we were on the phone, I turned the tv off by the button underneath. and the remote began to work. At first only on and off only worked, but persistence resulted in restoration of everything except remote pairing.I shall have to manage without Alexa and hang on to the TV unless some other fault arises.The Amazon agent was really helpful.I declined the refund.
I would not recommend this to anyone.
Update: Even worse!Started day with remote playing up.Changing channels far from smooth..Pressing button sometimes produced no change, changing channels produce zeros all the time befor changing..Then sound disappeared from HDMI channels, and finally an error message appeared on a black scree, telling me HDMI need .. can't really remember what this message said - something about length of cable.Anyway, black screen would not go away every time I switched on so TV is going back.
PS Forgot.In settings the is a choie to test wi-fi settings, remote and many more.When I tested remote, the page was blank and I was told the remote needed replacing. Didn't offer to replace it or say how to get it.Not available on web.Back to my 10 year old reliable Samsung.4 month old Panasonic in other room great.
Exceptional TV viewing experience, but sluggish response
We have this setup in the corner of our living room, so when the Ambilight comes on it really turns the TV into a show piece and the light effect still works very well.It's better than it looks in the pictures, and worth buying this TV for.
Picture quality is very good, its not that far off my significantly costlier QLED. Sound is good for a TV unit, can always add a soundbar to improve but I haven't needed to.
This TV doesn't have Disney or Funimation available, but it does have Netflix and Amazon.That's what I have an xbox for, or could always get a firestick.
My only real complaint is that if left on for a while, the TV becomes real sluggish and unresponsive to the remote buttons. You'll hit volume up, see the red light flicker, and wait about 10 seconds for the volume to actually change. Now and again, it never even does, just gives up.This is easily solved by simply turning it on and off again at the wall, so not too much of a pain, but may irritate some who perhaps can't reach the sockets or such.
All in all, price dependent of course (I paid £380), I can easily recommend this TV.
Ambilight is fantastic, but the TV is disappointing
I thought that I’d give the Ambilight a go, and I have to say - it’s fantastic. Not a gimmick, you’ll be used to it after a few days and watching other TVs without it feels odd! The image quality is half decent for UHD videos and I’m pleasantly surprised with the sound quality.
However there are some real issues with this TV if you’re coming from a solid brand like a Samsung or Sony. The remote is not laid out in a friendly way (disorganised and the selection wheel/volume controls are not prominent so you never know what you’re pressing in the dark). It’s also extremely slow to respond to inputs - literally about 2 seconds from pressing the remote to the TV responding, which can be frustrating when browsing streaming services’ catalogues.
Another major issue is app availability. You’ll be stuck with a bunch of third party apps you can’t install, and there’ll be no Apple TV+ or Disney+, you’ll be stuck with the basics (Netflix and Prime Video). Channel navigation can be a bit clunky for live TV, too.
All in all I’m pleased with it for the Ambilight, it’s made a great bedroom TV; but I wouldn’t recommend as a primary television due to its un-user friendliness in a number of departments.
Love the reactive ambient LED lights
You don't realise how big a 70" screen is until you have one, then my previous 50" starts to feel like a portable TV.
For the price probably the best on the 70" range.
Found the settings that control the picture brightness easy to find and use plus all the preset settings for movies, natural, game modes etc.Renders films and games very well even does a half decent job with the sound when you don't have a sound bar to hook up to.
The reactive ambient lights on the back of the TV are a great feature,adds another dimension to the things you watch, I've yet to pair it up to Philips Smart lights to get the whole dynamic living room atmosphere changing to the film scenes, but when I do, its going to be amazing.
One thing that could be improved, on some scenes I see a fractional jitter as the scene is changing - hard to explain and give the right impression but could do with being more smooth - something I'm accepting along with other positives for the price instead of paying thousands for way overpriced OLED versions.
One of the worst experiences of my life plus update.It gets worse. Down to 1 star.
This is a great TV. Picture quality is superb, sound is probably the best I've heard from a TV in years. It has some great built in speakers.
The downside - Not compatible with Disney + or Spotify. The apps in the "app gallery" are very very limited.
The feet are absolutely awful, cheap looking and very very ugly.
