The 86PUS8807/12 is a 86 inch 4K TV from Philips, launched in the year 2022. It features a 10-bit IPS panel with Glossy finish.
The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 51 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important feature to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction Accuracy, which is defined by its color gamut specification.
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 86 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 quality on this TV will be Lifelike! It will produce color accurate images out of the box.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut spec of a TV is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can produce.
A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated colors that will spoil the immersion.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 Adobe RGB, rec.2020. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.
But you don't need to worry about that, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
After color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.
What is Static Contrast ratio ?
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.
This defines the intensity of black levels. That is, a TV with static contrast ratio < 1000:1 may produce black images something like this:
Apart from that, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds that will impact your experience — as shown below.The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Also, a TV with high constrast ratio allows 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 features a static contrast ratio of 8000:1., enough to produce deep blacks and eye-catching visuals. The panel comes with local dimming 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 luminance the TV can produce is 250 nits with the help of Direct LED backlight.
If you are planning to use your TV only for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
The input lag on the Philips 86PUS8807/12 is 9 ms and its minimum response time is N/A. For a TV, its the best you can get for gaming.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the latency at which key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of your TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
Although for better experience, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 86 inches vertically and 76 inches horizontally. In total, it weighs around 23.6 kilograms. So plan your space accordingly.
