Philips 50PFT6550 Review – A Large-Screened FHD LCD TV

With all the large screen format TVs coming into the market these days, the Philips 50PFT6550 enters the scene much to the shock of many. This is a 50-inch TV that can only do Full-HD resolution rather than a native 4K screen resolution. However, despite its older pixel count, it does offer many than your average television set.

Philips 50PFT6550 Review - A Large-Screened FHD LCD TV

The Philips 50PFT6550 Can Only Deliver Full-HD Resolution

With the help of the company’s Perfect Pixel HD processing engine, the Philips 50PFT6550 is able to deliver crisp looking HD images. It also has sleek design benefits with the aid of a three-sided version of Philips’ Ambilight Technology. Furthermore, this is an Android-powered TV and carries the latest Android smart TV operating system as well. Add all of these with a reasonable price tag, and you may have a potentially winning formula for a large-format Full-HD TV.

Talking about its design, the Philips 50PFT6550 TV is placed with a serious luxurious tone. Also, by its looks alone, it already stands out from its competitors as it looks downright pretty. The TV makes the most out of what little it has to offer for its screen frame. There is an opulent-looking metallic silver finish, and there is a desktop stand (if you opt for placing it on a desktop instead of mounting it on a wall) has a gorgeous brushed aluminum that brings all the glamour to any party.

But what really sets the 50PFT6550 apart from its competition (visually speaking) is it has the emergence of bold pools of colored light found in three of its edges. This is courtesy of the aforementioned Philips’ Ambilight technology.

Even though the 50PFT6550 can only deliver a maximum Full-HD resolution (which means it can’t do 4K), image quality is still as impressive as ever. The TV is packed with tell-tale signs from the company’s TV expertise. It is the TV’s black level response that makes the shown images a wonder to behold.

It also uses a direct LED lighting system, which means that these lights sit directly behind the screen. There is also a so-called Micro Dimming Pro System which breaks down the picture into tiny segments. This will allow for more accurate picture analysis when deciding how you would use the TV’s lighting array.

The Philips 50PFT6550 has excellent picture quality, even for a TV that can only deliver Full-HD resolution. It has a top-of-the-line build quality and design, and it also has up-to-date smart features to everyone’s liking.
