ABOUT THIS TV

The 50PUS8807/12 is a 50 inch 4K TV from Philips, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit VA panel with Glossy finish.

The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 89 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important spec of a display that impacts picture quality is its Color Gamut.

Philips did not provide a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess.

Now, since the TV features a big 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 accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! Meaning it is capable of producing accurate colors by default.

What Color Gamut means ?

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

In layman terms, this specification determines the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), thus producing a "washed out" picture.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.

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 specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

Understanding the static contrast ratio

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that may look muddy as shown in below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you imagine, this will affect your experience considerably.

Like resolution, the static contrast ratio is also equally responsible for details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, so lesser detail overall.

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

HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HDR10, HDR10+, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision.

Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the Philips 50PUS8807/12 can produce is 250 nits with the help of Direct LED backlight.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are planning to use your TV other than watching videos — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you would want to take a TV that features the lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

The input lag on this TV is 9 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. So its a go-to TV if you are interested in gaming.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Now, coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 200 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The vertical and horizontal measurements of this TV are 44.68 inches and 27 inches respectively. Overall, it weighs approximately 11.2 kgs. So plan your space accordingly.
