ABOUT THIS TV

The 55PUS8507/12 is a 55 inch 4K TV from Philips. It was launched in 2022. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel.

It can display a maximum resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

Now, the next important feature of a display that defines picture quality is 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 55 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. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike! It is capable of producing color accurate images by default.

What Color Gamut means ?

Color gamut spec of a display is a measure of the range of colors that the TV can show.

A display with poor color accuracy will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.

It is specified in different units - sRGB,sRGB (standard RGB), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, 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

Other than color accuracy, the static contrast ratio of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ?

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 might look dusty as shown in the below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you imagine, this will impact 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.

If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

There is no mention of this specification in the TV's official datasheet. So we have to make an assumption again. In general, IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Considering its a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio of Philips 55PUS8507/12 would be no less than 1200:1.

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

Coming to brightness, it is can achieve a maximum brightness of 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Direct LED backlight technology.

Gaming Performance

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

Unfortunately, we cannot find the input lag specification for this unit. Now, as this is not a cheap TV from Philips, input lag on this TV could be 20ms or below.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which your device inputs 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 < 20ms.

Dimensions and Ergonomics

The width of this TV is 49 inches while its height is 29.46 inches. It weighs approximately 17.5 Kgs.

Now, speaking of ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 300 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The unit doesn't come with either Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

To power its UI, the TV runs Android 11 Operating System.
