Philips 50PUS6523/12 50-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV – A Very Good Television


Great picture quality and contrast. This tv is on 24/7 in our office and it works great even when exposed to sun light.

Great tv, for a reasonable price point.

The tv is great quality price, the picture and sound are awesome. Easy to set up so many preinstall apps incluiding prime video. But i put 3 stars because the power cable is missing, i wasn’t on the box.

Really happy with my television.

Picture and sound good at a fantastic price. Now considering buying another.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Trusted Name, brilliant product.
  • A Lot Better Than I Imaged It Would Be (But Funny Specs On HDMI Inputs)
  • Not suitable for wall hanging

I would have gone 5 stars if i didn’t have the issues with the tv installation. When i ran the setup everything went ok until connection to the server to install the smart features. It didn’t work through the setup. It took me a while to figure out. I used the phillips support site to download and install from usb to correct version of software. But, until that i’ve been trying to reinstall the tv multiple times.

Wasn’t sure given the price what this would be like but it’s excellent quality very pleased , though maybe should have gone for a bit less than 50 inch screen haha.

Bought from amazon warehouse. Couldn’t see any issues with it. 55inch looks great on my wall. Sound and picture quality is awesome.

My first ‘proper’ smart wifi enabled tv. . Gorgeous picture with blu-ray, hd-dvd, dvd and youtube hq videos. Don’t get me wrong – an excellent smart tv for those starting out on a 4k capable tv experience, but not for me. Just watch out for the ridiculously small buttons on the remote (which has a curved back, impossible for picking up when relaxing and needing to wake up sufficiently to pick up and aim the damned thing) and the confusing menus for someone who has spent over a decade with panasonic gear. I now have the panasonic equivalent and peace is restored albeit with a slightly inferior picture (but not by much). A flawed miracle that may suit others (sent back).

The picture isn’t always great when streaming tv through the internet. For the price paid and the technical specification of the product i would have thought the overall picture quality would be better.

I have just upgraded from my 39′ panasonic 1080p tv. The picture quality is superb- the screen is bright and colourful but also has great organic looking blacks. Great bass and doesn’t buzz on the high end. My only issue is that the interface can be sluggish at times but as i don’t use the smart features all of the time, this isn’t really an issue.

I bought this 65-in tv for my xbox and i am really happy with it.

Purchased this product during black friday sales , great value for money. Connections are easy and setup is straightforward.

This really is a fantastic tv especially for the price that i bought it for from amazon. Very easy to set up and use. Terrific picture and i have to say the sound considering the width of the tv is impressive. If your thinking about buying one, do it. I’m very happy with this uhd tv. Obviously not had it too long to comment on reliability, but great buy and would buy again.

First time i recived a damaged tv with a blue line on the left of the screen,but the repleace of the tv was verry quick and the second tv it working verry good the quality of the image it s awesom,the sound can be better but at this priece it the best 4k tv you can get.

Excellent tv, can’t fault it, and tvsandmore are the best customer service i have encountered for a while.

Having bought four different makes of flat screen tv sets over the last ten years, i can say this latest phillips 55 inch ultra hd flat screen bought off amazon is truly a great buy. It arrived several days early, and because i am infirm, my adult son wired it up and said it was simple, and all you have to do is read the instructions if you must, but the tv does most of the ‘tuning’ itself. Apart from making sure the power is on and you are hooked up either by cable or wireless to your wi-fi (i. Skybox or bt box or another provider) simply update the ‘apps’ that operate the set. This is done on screen with the click on the remote control. In five minutes all was working beautifully, including youtube and netflix and loads of others. The picture is superb and sharp in focus and colours are natural. The sound is good too, although we have rigged up our samsung sound system to enhance the new set further.

It looks nice and works great.

I must admit to having already formed an opinion that this budget tv form their range was going to offer poor results and i was wrong it is pretty good :)i shall however go over the hdmi inputs specs which seem to me are a little strange. 2 only on hdmi1computer inputs on hdmi1 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzcomputer inputs on hdmi2/3 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzvideo inputs on hdmi1 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzvideo inputs on hdmi2/3 up to 4k uhd 3840×[email protected] hzalso not listed on the product spec page is that hdr support is only hdmi2/3 and arc is on hdmi1it does not say which specification the hdmi ports meet. So to get the best picture out of a uhd blu-ray it needs to be on hdmi2/3 but if you are using an a/v amp and want the tv sound on it it has to be on hdmi1 with no hdr and 30hz maximum. I assume the better models offer more flexibility. Anyway, setup was easy and the tv is pretty light weighing only 8. 8kgit does have satellite support but no uk channel lineup but if you pick austria they are in amongst the 800 channels so unless you are a nerd ignore the satellite connection. Tv aerial freeplay support works as expected. Either wifi or wired network connection are available with options for sound style (the speakers point down and are on the bottom). The silver grey colour of the tv clashes a bit with by black tv stand but i can get used to that.

Brilliant picture, great colour depth and super-easy to use.

This is quite a good looking television with a thin bezel and discrete stand (so discrete indeed that i thought it was meant to be a wall-mount at first)we first set this up next to our existing television (a 50” plasma by panasonic) in order to more easily compare the picture quality. It soon became apparent that which is better depends upon what you are watching. For football, the plasma had the edge as it copes better with fast movement. For nature documentaries though, this set was amazing and the closest you can get to feeling like you are looking through a window (albeit with a strange colour filter in it)to get a great 4k tv for less than £700 was unheard of to me, for this to be less than half that – you would expect something to be very wrong. However, i freeview play and uk tv play make a great effort to sum up all tv shows worth watching into one convenient place without having to try every service separately when browsing. And what’s more – this is as yet the best smart tv interface i have found over the years – and i cannot recommend it more. The remote is very simply laid out for once despite being a very customisable tv – the remote could be understood by anyone of any age and harks back to the straightforward almost empty remotes of years past. Colour – here i take issue – when compared alongside my 50” panasonic plasma, colours are noticeably ridiculous and flawed. Sound quality with both is on a par, if i had to pick i’d give it to the panasonic but with either i still prefer to use a sound bar and speakers for the best effect.

    First of all the quality of the tv is very poor cheaply made plastic. It says 4k but i’ve tried x box one s, ps4 pro and amazon stick 4k but the tv can not support any them devices basically it’s not even 4k. The sound quality is poor you have to buy a speaker.

      Overall, lost a star because of two issues for me. 1) after hanging on the wall, there is no access to the various ports, usb,hdmi etc. 2) every time i switch on the tv, it tells me there are no channels registered and to connect an aerial or cable and register some. I don’t have a tv licence so do t want any channels.

      I decided to upgrade my tv from a normal one to a smart one. I chose this one because it had the amazon prime app built in. After getting it set-up i was amazed as to how well the nfl looked on it.

      Screen is far from bright enough. It just looks dull and washed out, which misses the mark for an led uhdtv. My old samsung 1080p lcd is about 2-3 times brighter. If you increase the brightness to try and remedy:a) it’s not actually brighter, just more exposedb) blacks turn grey.

    Bought to use as the main tv in living room after seeing all the vine reviews, however i will not be trusting them in future. A review of a free product removes a majot factor, the opinion of value for money. The tv is extremely laggy, the sound is terrible and the picture quality is poor. You have to make sure the room is dark for it to work on any level of reasonable, curtains closed. If it was free of charge tv then of course it be fine, but for £500 definitely not. You need a fast internet connection, connect to a 4k service provider like netflix or youtube to get any kind of good quality picture. The vast adjustments options make it very difficult to find an overall setting to enjoy, and the sound is terrible whatever the setting. Again if it was free of charge tv then of course it be fine, but for £500 definitely not. On top of all this poor quality, i experienced the tv freeze a number of times where i had to unplug it to make it work again and a terrible buzzing sound decides to come bow and then, where again you have to reset the tv for it to go away. Dont waste your money and time on this as if you actually pay moneh for it, then and only then can you know whether it is good or not.

      This tv doesn t have android on so you cannot install app. It has some apps already installed, just like netflix , youtube and many more but still. Also it gets laggy if you stream on it from pc, you have to change your picture style to game mode, which also reduces the quality. Overall picture quality very good in standard mode, 4k.
