Philips 75PUS8007/12 exterior design
Due to the fact that the Philips 75PUS8007 is not a premium model, its design will not be incredible, although we must recognize that it has a prudent design which seems to integrate well with almost any environment, especially if we plan to place it in a large room, since we are facing to the 75-inch version .
Surely the best thing will be to acquire the VESA support that helps us to have a simpler installation, although our recommendation is that you place it on the wall , so we can visualize the front part that turns out to be the most attractive of all its appearance due to the fine frame that covers the screen.
These allow the appearance of the television to be more elegant, since we see a more complete screen, in fact, the useful space reaches almost 95%, which is perfect when viewing content. To this we must add the inclusion of Ambilight + technology, which is incredible .
Since it emits LED lights from the sides with colors that adjust to the content we are seeing, we have a beautiful environment . The rear gives us a cleaner space that eliminates bulky parts, so we enjoy a really slim look.
The rear part stands out for not having the classic more voluminous space that sometimes affects the aesthetics in general. The only thing we noticed is that the construction materials are not that resistant.
We have a complete connector box that has the essential ports. Proof of this are its three HDMI 2.0 inputs , perfect for connecting external devices and sending their signal to the TV. We also have two USB that we can use to play or record content.
Likewise, we have other very useful physical connections such as its Ethernet port that allows us to connect to the Internet through the network cable, although this forces us to have the television very close. We observe interesting options such as its satellite input , its audio output , its headphone jack and its RF input .
At the level of tuners, we have a wide variety for a very complete channel scan. You can check the ones included in the specifications table.
Here we have the two most used options of the moment, which ensures a good wireless experience. For starters, we have Wi-Fi Direct to use the internet from a distance. As if that were not enough, we have Bluetooth 5.0 to connect more external devices.
Image quality and functions in general of the Philips 75PUS8007
The image of the Philips 75PUS8007/12 seems acceptable to us due to the optimization it offers, which seems sufficient to display any content. Firstly, we find a 4K resolution that, by offering four times more power than Full HD , delivers more realistic details.
This definition is complemented by an LED backlight that from our point of view is regular, since it has more disadvantages than benefits , therefore, the experience will be very limited, especially if we place the television in a very dark or bright environment.
Something interesting to know is that it has an MVA panel that turns out to be a subtype of the VA. This presents some advantages that improve the experience a little . To begin with, we have a faster refresh rate that favors us when viewing content with a lot of action.
The viewing angle is also very good, obviously it does not have the quality of an IPS panel, but it defends itself well. Likewise, we notice a significant improvement in contrast, however, here we notice a little sacrifice in brightness and color fidelity .
We found some functions that work to improve essential parameters of the image, so the final result is more enjoyable. There will be technologies like ISF Color that tries to expose a more vivid and intense color. Contrast continues to improve thanks to Micro Dimming Pro .
In case the content is being played from a lower resolution source, we should not worry too much, since Ultra Resolution improves the quality considerably. We also have support for HDR10 , HDR10+ , HLG and Dolby Vision .
We can consider that the audio is another of the weak points of this model, and we say this because we only have two speakers that offer 20W of power, which is normal in the mid-range, however, there will be more demanding content that could cause certain conflicts. The good thing is that we have technologies like Clear Dialogue , Dolby Atmos and Dolby Bass Enhancement for a more immersive experience.
Analysis of the software / Smart TV and more notable features
The Philips 75PUS8007 includes Android 11, a system that we stand out for the huge catalog of applications it contains, and this is because it has the Play Store that allows us to install more than 7,000 options, obviously the most popular platforms will be available .
We also have the ability to download music, movies and games to enjoy on the TV. Another benefit is the inclusion of Google Assistant and Alexa , two assistants that allow us to control certain functions using only the voice. Thus we enjoy a better order of certain characteristics.
Another mid-range of an almost similar size is the Philips 70PUS8556/12 , which stands out for including some interesting features that serve well for a television of its capabilities. We recommend reviewing the review we have done on the mentioned model to learn about its advantages.
