Ultra-thin (only 6 mm) and rather elegant in its genre, this TV Ultra HD / 4K Philips 55PUS7181 has an argument that others do not have: Ambilight. And here it is the 3-channel system with the added bonus of a game mode and a World Lounge for light effects adapt both to the images and wall color.
As the new Sony models, Philips TV runs Android 5.1 (Lollipop) with a quad core processor and incorporates the same 16 GB of internal memory (expandable via USB) for downloading all kinds of applications. Those equipped with an Android smartphone or familiar Gmail and the Google ecosystem so sail on familiar ground. And as the device ships Wi-Fi n and Bluetooth 2.1, it is easy to connect to the network, to add different devices (including wireless headphones) and use their smartphone or tablet as a remote control (with voice recognition).
feeding unflinchingly all types of sources and even less able to magnify the qualitative, this Philips TV operates the arsenal of conventional video processing mark (Pixel Precise HD Ultra, Perfect Natural Motion, Ultra Resolution). Algorithms it will however be used sparingly because rendering is not always optimal. On some sources, the image tends to lose natural. However, in color, the image is finely nuanced, the contrasts are good and the flow engine is efficient, both in the action scenes of the last Mission Impossible on the Roland Garros images.
A final positive note sound. Powerful, generous, precise on the voices and with many possible settings.
