ABOUT THIS TV

Philips 50PUS8507/12 400x400 Image Philips 50PUS8507/12

The 50PUS8507/12 is a 50 inch 4K TV from Philips, launched in the year 2022. It comes with a 10-bit VA panel. The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important spec of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, but don't worry, we have other means to guess that.

Now, since the TV features amassive 50 inch screen, it won't come with a cheap panel, so here we can assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 90-100% or above. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images.

What Color Gamut means ?

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

A TV with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will not be pretty to look at.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Viz — sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few.

But don't worry, below is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.

Understanding the static contrast ratio

Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Apart from this, such TVs often suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

This will affect your experience, especially in a dark room.

Also, a TV with high constrast ratio allows you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.

There's no mention of this spec in this TV's official specsheet. So once again we have to take a guess. VA panels in general have superior contrast ratios. As you know, this TV features the same, so the static contrast ratio would be easily atleast 3000:1 or above.

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

Coming to brightness, it is can produce a maximum brightness of 250 nits, which is powered by Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

If you are not planning to game on this TV, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, you should get a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Unfortunately, Philips did not specify the input lag on this unit. Now, since this is not a cheap TV from Philips, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which your key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of your display. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.

Although for better experience, look for a TV that has an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — If you plan to wall mount the TV, you can make use of the VESA mount provided with this TV, which by the way has an interface size of 300 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The TV measures 50 inches vertically and 44.68 inches horizontally. It weighs approximately 11.2 kgs. So plan your space accordingly.

The UI on this TV is powered by Android 11 Operating System.
