The 43PUS8807/12 is a 43 inch 4K TV from Philips. It was launched in 2022. It features a 10-bit IPS panel with Glossy finish.

The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important spec of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't come with a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type.

Considering the TV comes with a 10bit IPS panel, we can safely assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 100% or above. The color accuracy on this TV should be Lifelike!

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the TV can display.

What this means is, it indicates the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A display with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB, NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB and rec.2020.

But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, the static contrast ratio of a TV has equally important role in picture quality.

Why its important?

There are two types of contrast specifications for a TV. Static and Dynamic. We are interested in static contrast ratio. Dynamic doesn't matter much.

Static contrast defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio < 1000:1 will produce black images something like this:

Example of a disply with low contrast ratio

Apart from this, such TVs may suffer from backlight bleeds that will affect your experience — as shown below.

Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio enables you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand.

This TV features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. For the record, it also comes with local dimming which is a plus.

HDR10, HDR10+, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision are also supported on this TV.

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can ignore these specs. But if you are also going to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to get a TV that features the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on this TV is 9 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. You will love this TV if you are a gamer.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, get a TV that has an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 100 x 200 mm. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.

Vertically, the TV measures 43 inches and horizontally 38.58 inches. In total, it weighs 11.2 kilograms.
