  • Attractive design with a matte display free from glare, Accurate colour reproduction: average deltaE: 1.7, Good audio quality, Low energy consumption: 130 W, Light, comfortable 3D glasses with less eyestrain than active 3D glasses, Limited crosstalk in 3D
  • Hard to make the most of 2560 x 1080 pixel resolution: HD content doesn't look great, Contrast ratio isn't good enough: 900:1, Vertical resolution halved in 3D, Viewing angles too narrow in 3D
  • Passive 3D technology is a great choice for the Philips 50PFL7956H, which looks better in three dimensions than the active technology-based 58PFL9956H. On the other hand, a contrast ratio of 900:1, a ghosting time of 19 ms and a tricky resolution of 25...

  • BBC iPlayer; brushed metallic design; MKV support from USB; onscreen slideshow from smartphone,
  • No MKV support over network; slow web browser; choice of online video apps; Freeview EPG.
  • Almost affordable and mightily tempting for anyone after the ultimate Blu-ray movie TV, where the 50PFL7956 is surprisingly easy to live with. Picture quality is outstanding and it makes a fine screen for gaming, too, though you'll have to learn to liv...

  • Fabulous CinemaScope treatment of Blu, ray, Manageable size for living room, Affordable 3D glasses, Built, in speakers, Detailed images
  • 21:9 zoom can go awry on 16:9 footage, Net TV underwhelms, Lacks ultimate contrast, Ambilight too separated, Picture can look processed
  • A living room-sized version of a CinemaScope TV aimed at those who mostly watch Blu-ray movies, the Philips 50PFL7956T comes with a raft of must-have features – including a clean and easy 3D mode. The fullscreen option for split-screen games provides a t...

  Published: 2011-12-12, Author: John Archer , review by: trustedreviews.com

  • Watching films in 21:9 never grows old, Crosstalk-free 3D, Very good with 2D, too
  • Some sources don’t lend themselves to 21:9 expansion, It’s expensive by normal 50in TV standards, Ambilight looks a bit awkward
  • Although it won't suit everyone, the 50PFL7956T's 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio makes it a brilliantly rewarding TV for die-hard movie fans. Especially given the crosstalk-free nature of its 3D playback. Narrowly missing out on a nomination for the Trus...

  • Decent 2D picture quality, great handling of non-HD video, superb movie-watching experience
  • 3D could be better, IPTV not as good as some other brands
  • A must for dedicated cineoholics but there’s better options for straight 16:9 material - not many better, though....

  • The 21:9 shape works brilliantly for films; 2D and 3D pictures are both mostly very good; features galore,
  • Crosstalk when viewed offaxis; black levels could be better

  • Fabulous CinemaScope treatment of Bluray, Manageable size for living room, Affordable 3D glasses, Builtin speakers, Detailed images
  • 21:9 zoom can go awry on 16:9 footage, Net TV underwhelms, Lacks ultimate contrast, Ambilight too separated, Picture can look processed
  • Is the Philips 50PFL7956T the first affordable CinemaScope TV? Not quite, but this effort from Philips halves the price of a 21:9 aspect ratio telly while also halving the resolution of 3D. Using Edge LED backlighting and passive Easy 3D tech, the Philips...

  • Flicker-free and bright 3D visuals; cinemascope-sized screen; smart TV; two-player gaming; Ambilight function.
  • Motion artifacts and judder; mediocre shadow detail; excessively squashed images for regular broadcasts; no 3D photo support.
  • The Philips Cinema 21:9 Gold renders clean and flicker-free 3D pictures, but is lacking in motion production and smart TV. ...

  • Joli design et dalle mate (peu de reflets), Colorimétrie fidèle (delta E moyen de 1,7), Bonne qualité sonore, Faible consommation d'énergie (130 watts), Lunettes 3D légères et confortables :, moins de fatigue visuelle qu'avec des lunettes actives, 3D : effet crosstalk contenu.
  • Définition de 2560 x 1080 peu exploitable : manque de précision de l'affichage HD, Taux de contraste trop juste (900:1), Définition de l'image divisée par deux en 3D, Angles de vision étroits en 3D.
  • La technologie passive polarisée apporte un vrai plus à ce téléviseur. Il offre un meilleur rendu 3D que le 58PFL9956H (doté d'une 3D active). En revanche, son taux de contraste (900:1), son temps de rémanence (19 ms) et sa définition (2560 x 1080 pixe...

  • Avec ce téléviseur LCD, Philips tente de démocratiser un peu son format 21 :9ème en réduisant un peu la diagonale notamment. Il reste tout de même 50 pouces ce qui relativise un peu la descente en gamme ! Toujours est-il que le constructeur en a profit...
