TV’s have improved their image. Not only are they slimmer and smarter than ever, but the introduction of 4K UHD has led to sharper, more cinematic pictures.
With early Black Friday sales currently in full swing, there are serious savings to be made if you want to replace your old HD TV.
We’ve scoured the Black Friday bargain aisles in search of your next set, and found a brilliant buy in the stylish shape of Philips 50-inch 50PUS9005.
It’s currently in Currys PC World’s Black Friday sale selling for £449, which represents a massive £130 saving off the regular price tag.
Plus, Currys will make sure you do not miss out on any deals, as for orders placed between 10 and 19 November, if the items are cheaper on Black Friday, the company will refund the difference.
Why we love it
This isn’t just a fine looking telly, it’s packed with leading edge features too.
Offering 4k resolution with HDR (high dynamic range), it’s a natural match for 4k streaming services like Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video, as well as the latest PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S games consoles.
Naturally the connected set is smart too. Built on the Android TV platform, there’s a wide range of apps and services to download. It also works with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control.
Arguably the best reason to buy this Philips over rival 4K models is the provision of Ambilight, Philips’ unique lighting feature. Ambilight will bathe your wall in vivid colours which really enhance the mood of anything you’re watching on the box.
Philips tells us that 80 per cent of buyers who experience Ambilight never want to go back to a TV without it. Seems like a bright idea to us.
