Philips PUK6400 Review – Affordable UHDTV with restrictions





The Philips PUK6400 is a UHDTV with a modest price. To achieve this low price is saving on the case and make the speakers do not impress. In the image panel is not saved, because it offers high contrast and good black levels. The color reproduction and viewing angles leave nothing to be desired. Gamers can skip this screen better because the inputlag is high. There are also downsides to the image; the corners are a bit dark and a bug turn the image interpolation itself time and again in.

The proportion of UHDTV’s relative HDTVs continues to increase. Where the first uhd models were outrageously expensive, they are now getting in all shapes and sizes for ever lower prices. It is therefore a matter of time before there are no more high-definition models will be found in the shops, just as there is now no sd television are available for sale.

Philips PUK6400

The television we see in this review, is an affordable UHDTV Philips, whose 40 “model at the time of writing for 500 euros PriceWatch be found. The 50” version, which we viewed is from 709 euro for sale and the largest size, 55 inches, cost a little less than 850 euros. Very reasonable prices so for a UHDTV, but to achieve this level of prices is TP Vision, producers of Philips televisions, have to make some concessions. So this model can not display 3D, you get an ‘old-fashioned’ infrared remote control and makes the screen using direct-LED backlight, making the body a bit thicker than the edge-lit models. You also have to do without it for many Philips televisions signature Ambilight system.

The PUK6400 runs on Google’s Android operating system for televisions TV, which is based on Android 1.5 Lollipop. This requires a large amount of apps available through a special version of the store called Google Play Butik. Android TV has integrated the functionality of Google Chrome Cast. More and more apps for PC, Android and iOS have support for the cast protocol, which allows you to send a very simple way audio and video to your TV.
