Philips 50PFL7956H

 

Philips attempts to make its 21:9-ratio TVs more mainstream with a set that also marks the brands' first foray into passive 3D technology

Watching films in 21:9 never grows old ; Crosstalk-free 3D ; Very good with 2D, too

Some sources don’t lend themselves to 21:9 expansion ; It’s expensive by normal 50in TV standards ; Ambilight looks a bit awkward

Philips 50PFL7956T review

 

There aren't that many 21:9 televisions on the market, but this Philips LCD is the best one we've seen so far

Physically impressive ; superb detail ; strong contrast ; ‘Easy 3D’ is just that

Ours had some backlight bleed ; not great for gamers ; iffy online picture quality

We’re not exactly spoilt for 21:9 choice, but nevertheless this is the best implementation we’ve seen

Philips 50PFL7956H review

 

If there was any doubt that Philips is one of the most innovative TV brands at work today, it's been emphatically eradicated by the first two TVs we've seen from the brand's belated 2011/202 range. First there was the 46PFL9706T, which used its...

The 21:9 shape works brilliantly for films; 2D and 3D pictures are both mostly very good; features galore

Crosstalk when viewed off-axis; black levels could be better

Philips 50PFL7956T Cinema 21:9 Gold

 

It's nearly three years down the line and Philips is still the only major TV manufacturer selling panels as the cinema intended. The original Philips Cinema 21:9 was a hit, if a rather pricey one. The second added 3D and won itself Best TV at the...

Decent 2D picture quality, great handling of non-HD video, superb movie-watching experience

3D could be better, IPTV not as good as some other brands

The Philips 21:9 Gold is a superb TV which truly earned its place in the short list for Best TV 2011 in the Pocket-lint Gadget Awards. For the money, there’s simply no better way to watch high definition films. The full screen experience combined with...

Philips 50PFL7956T review

 

Philips' ultra-widescreen Edge LED TV sets the gold standard for movies

Fabulous CinemaScope treatment of Blu-ray ; Manageable size for living room ; Affordable 3D glasses ; Built-in speakers ; Detailed images

21:9 zoom can go awry on 16:9 footage ; Net TV underwhelms ; Lacks ultimate contrast ; Ambilight too separated ; Picture can look processed

This LED TV may have unusual, almost unique, dimensions that lend it an almost futuristic appearance.

Gold 21:9 50PFL7956 LED TV

 

Extra-wide cinema format and ambient lighting offer a unique and special TV experience. The frame and base made of brushed aluminium lend this device a sophisticated look.

BBC iPlayer; brushed metallic design; MKV support from USB; onscreen slideshow from smartphone

No MKV support over network; slow web browser; choice of online video apps; Freeview EPG

Almost affordable and mightily tempting for anyone after the ultimate Blu-ray movie TV, where the 50PFL7956 is surprisingly easy to live with. Picture quality is outstanding and it makes a fine screen for gaming, too, though you'll have to learn to...
