ABOUT THIS TV

Philips 55PUS8807/12 400x400 Image Philips 55PUS8807/12

The 55PUS8807/12 is a 55 inch 4K TV from Philips. It was launched in 2022. It comes with a 10-bit IPS panel with Glossy finish. The maximum resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a pixel density of 80 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display that will impact your viewing experience is Color Gamut.

This TV doesn't provide a color gamut specification, so we have to make an assumption based on its panel type. Considering the TV features a 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! Meaning it is capable of producing accurate colors AS IT IS intended.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that it can show.

Meaning, this specification indicates the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low 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 1953, DCI P3 etc.

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

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, next in the list of important specifications is Static Contrast.

The importance of static contrast ratio

The static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A TV with low static contrast ratio (less than 1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such displays may suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

Obviously this will impact your viewing experience, especially in a dark room.

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

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

This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., good enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming which is a plus.

HDR10, HDR10+, HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and Dolby Vision are also supported on this TV, so that's a plus.

As for brightness, it is can achieve a maximum luminance of 250 nits. The backlight used on the panel is Direct LED.

Gaming Performance

Now if you are going to use the TV other than watching videos — like as a PC monitor or Gaming, you should take a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming, both input lag and response time affects the performance.

The input lag on the Philips 55PUS8807/12 is 9 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. Gamers will love this TV.

Understanding Input lag and response time

This lag is the amount of time at which your inputs changes the content of your TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

But ideally, look for a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 300 x 300 mm. However, there is no Swivel, Tilt or Pivot feature support in this TV.

The TV measures 55 inches vertically and 49 inches horizontally. Overall, it weighs 17.5 KGs. So plan your space accordingly.
