    I freaking love ambilight.

    If only they made a 75 inch version.

  • HDMI 2.1? 4K120HZ?

      And same price at Domayne…should read the review on there. I wouldn’t suggest anyone get this over an LG or Sony on sale.

        Domayne is Harvey norman, just like The Good Guys is JB.

        Unfortunately its been months since a 55" OLED has been close to this price - the last being LG A1 at $1695 last October, which is hampered significantly compared to LG C series.

        Definitely would buy an LG, Sony or Samsung on sale if they were anywhere near the same price, but sadly that doesn't seem to be happening these days

    A friend who works at Phillips says they have sold their TV division to some other company and get royalty from them for using the name.

    • That is correct, I believe it's owned by AOCs parent company TPV.

    Warranty claims sucks with Phillips, I got a screen with so much ghosting it's unusable.

    Called the Philips warranty line but it went to a 3rd party company it seemed, the tech said Phillips won't approve the claim.

    The email support is terrible weeks between communication and ticket has been open for over 6 months now.

      Really? I thought the exact opposite. I bought a Philips 4k 40" monitor, one of the first large format 4k screens and it had an issue when resuming from sleep, in that it didn't. After using it for 9 months, I had enough of the issue and contacted Philips. Apparently there was a firmware update to fix the issue. They came and collected it, about a week later, said that the update had failed and that they're going to issue me a full refund. I got a full refund from the store I bought it from. I then bought a similar monitor for half the price.

  • Does anyone know how it’s compared to LG C1?

    • 805 is 2020 model, and C1 is 2021 model

        Speaking of the colours and picture quality do you have idea?

      I'd like to know too - from an image/processing POV

    I remember when i bought a Phillips plasma 50inch with Ambilight. I bought it second hand back in the early 2000s the guy who bought it brand new had spend $12k on it. I had never heard of Ambilight till i got that TV and man IT WAS amazing. Such a great feature especially if you like watching TV in the dark / in a light controlled room.

    • Yeah not the same unfortunately

  • I contacted Philips last week to ask when the 2021 OLED model would be available here. Soon apparently.
    No dice for the 2022 models.
