Impressive image quality and great looks, but crosstalk is a problem in 3D...

For the true movie-nut there's nothing quite like a trip to the cinema; the smell of the popcorn machine, the sticky carpeting underfoot, the awkward teenage fumblings on the back seats, and, most importantly, the gigantic widescreen vision of your...

I really like the Cinema 21:9 and it is definitely one of the better TVs I’ve ever had the pleasure of testing. It has great picture reproduction capabilities, awesome sound and some nice features. However, there are these tiny things that Philips...

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...

My, but this TV isn’t cheap. Except, when you factor in all the features, the remarkable aspect ratio and the stand-out picture quality, it sort of is. The picture works well whatever you throw at it but the LED dimming makes widescreen content...

First-generation products that might be regarded as ahead of their time don't always hit the ground running. It's fair to say that ' first attempt at a 21:9 TV wasn't without its issues. It'll be interesting to see what the second...

En film-tv som ger dig bra bild och bra ljud, men till ett pris som ändå gör den aningen svårmotiverad eftersom 16:9 idag är ett format som mer eller mindre är...

Watching a 16:9 widescreen program on a 4:3 TV is appalling. Black bars sit top and bottom and a large portion of your precious screen real estate goes unused. Fortunately most TVs now use a 16:9 ratio, though this means we still get black bars when...

Philips' upgraded Cinema 21:9 TV adds full LED backlighting and 3D compatibility to a movie-friendly aspect ratio. Its 3D performance isn't great, but otherwise it'll be well worth a look for home-cinema...

The problem with widescreen TVs is simply that they’re not wide enough. Or at least, they’re not wide enough to truly satisfy your average movie addict. The reason for this will be abundantly apparent to anyone who’s ever been annoyed...

Philips' first cinemascope (21:9) ratio TV sent shockwaves through the home entertainment universe when it launched in 2009. A TV that delivered widescreen movies without black bars at the bottom and top of the image was a daring step that helped...

Just as Spinal Tap’s amps go to 11, then Philips’ 58PFL9955H goes to 21. Or 21:9, to be precise. This is the much-anticipated sequel to the brand’s original, ground-breaking and seriously movie-friendly Cinema 21:9 – a TV...
