Philips Cinema 21:9 58PFL9955H/12

 

This 58in widescreen telly is one of the best LED LCD TVs we've ever reviewed.

Vibrant and well saturated colours ; Excellent sound quality ; Amazing picture quality

No Freeview HD tuner ; Crosstalk with 3D ; Slight haloing during off-axis viewing

Sure, the 58PFL9955H’s lack of a Freeview HD tuner is irritating, the work needed to get the best from it might seem intimidating, and the crosstalk with 3D (however minimal versus rival LCD sets) is definitely an area for Philips to work on for next...

Philips Cinema 21:9 58PFL9955H review

 

The second 21:9 LCD television from Philips certainly has some minor niggles, but for out and out wow factor it leads the field

Proportions look fantastic ; detailed images ; sounds decent ; solid build ; nice remote

Struggles with motion ; no HD tuner ; doesn’t handle movie subtitles well

There are minor niggles and images take a fair bit of tweaking, but for out and out wow factor, this Philips takes some beating

Philips Cinema 21:9 56PFL9954H review

 

This Cinema 21:9 set looks absolutely stunning, but it's hard for it to justify its hefty price tag

Looks amazing ; packed with features ; huge picture ; detailed, colourful images ; handles motion well ; sounds above average

Misgivings over how the TV handles incoming signals ; cost

One of the coolest TVs we've come across for some time but it has some frustrating flaws

Philips Cinema 21:9 58PFL9955H review

 

Philips' second-gen super-widescreen TV is even bigger than before, and it's all set for 3D action, too. So, is it time to clear a 58in space on the wall?

Movie buffs with big wallets will love it. It’s not perfect, but we’d sell our gran for one

Philips 58PFL9955H Cinema 21:9 Platinum

 

Philips doesn't do things by halves. Designed primarily to rid Blu-ray movie transfers of those pesky black bars top and bottom, this uniquely (for now – LG demoed a very similar product behind closed doors at the recent CES) shaped TV increases the...

Full-screen CinemaScope movies, HD detail, contrast, black levels, colour, Ambilight, speakers, remote control

No Freeview HD, messy 3D, distorts some sources

Almost four grand gets almost the finished article, but this unique 21:9-shaped LED-studded screen is a specialist screen. With wow factor in spades, this 58-incher lacks a Freeview HD tuner or convincing 3D pictures, yet its jaw-dropping contrast and...

Outside of beaming pictures from a projector, Philips’ monster Cinema 21:9 TV has been the closest you’ll get to experiencing true widescreen cinematic splendour in the living room. Now its second gen
