We're big fans of Ambilight, but there's no way we'd pay £1950 for a rubbish telly just for the accompanying light show. But the fact is that even if you took that feature away the 55PFL8008 would still be a brilliant TV, and that's why it gets a place...

Aside from not having as much online content as some rivals, the Philips 55PFL8008 is a premium TV in every way, capable of producing stellar picture quality and looking mighty fine while it's doing it.Next, read our round-up of the best 4K...

An excellent TV for 2D and 3D video, but only if you put the work in to calibrate...

While the smart functionality is a bit of an Achilles' heel for the Philips, we have to say that this TV's all-round performance more than makes up for it. Stunning 2D pictures, a great 3D performance and black levels deep enough to challenge those on...

Philips has long had a reputation in the TV world for going further than most when it comes to video processing. This trend continues with its new 55PFL8008. This is not automatically a good thing; sometimes picture quality can suffer through heavy-duty...

Philips' top Full HD television for 2013 - with the exception of the larger Philips 55PFL8008S, perhaps - is one of the best in the business. Detail in both moving images and close-ups is excellent, blacks are profound and its Perfect Natural Motion...

Even if the Philips 55PFL8008S isn't as "smart" as the competition, the level of customisable picture control is smarter than much else out there that we've seen - and that's where the smart money is. All £2,500 of it. If you're a TV techie...

Apart from its updated design and the new smartphone mirroring functions, the Philips PFL8008 is effectively the same as 2012's PFL8007. It therefore delivers excellent picture quality. So why four stars rather than five? Well, contrast levels are good,...

We might not have had a Philips TV in for a review here at AVForums for a couple of years but when one finally did come through our doors again, it blew us away. The manufacturer had made great strides in terms of image accuracy, black levels and...

One could be forgiven for thinking that the Philips 55PFL8008S/12 is simply a reskin of last year's 8007 series, given the many similarities between the two in terms of image quality down to the SD processing quirks. Nevertheless, there's at least one...

Philips' Smart TV Premium platform is still close to useless in its current form. It works and acts more like a slow website than actual apps that you know from your smartphones and tablets. A few apps are available now but Netflix, for example, will not...

Oferecendo uma imersão maior graças a projeção de cores do Ambilight, a TV Philips 55PFL8008G/78 traz também belas imagens em sua tela LED com cores vibrantes e muitas conexões para plugar todos os aparelhos nela. O problema está na lentidão dos menus (e...

International Review By Chip.de on 93

Von allen 55-Zoll-Fernsehern im Test ist der Philips 55PFL8008S mit Abstand das günstigste Modell. Dabei präsentiert er sich als insgesamt sehr gute Glotze mit hoher Darstellungsqualität bei 2D und 3D. Die minimalen Schwächen beim Bildqualität und...
