Product description

With the Philips The One 43PUS8505 - Ambilight (2020) + Soundbar, you can bring the cinema to your living room. The 4K resolution and the 10-bit panel provide colorful and sharp images, which are supported by the clear sound of the soundbar. During an explosion in a movie, you can see all the details of the debris flying at you, while the subwoofer in the soundbar provides the low tones of the dull bang. The P5 processor of the television improves the less good image sources and always keeps the image quality up to standard. Don't like having multiple remotes? You can connect the soundbar via the HDMI ARC port to operate your soundbar with the TV remote control.

    Philips The One: versatile and easy-to-use TV

    Jorn. Televisiespecialist. | 18 August 2020 | In the version: 65 inches | No soundbar | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Colorful and detailed image
    • Striking design
    • Nice and extensive smart menu
    • No deep bass sounds

    After the easy installation, I notice that the Philips The One immediately stands out because of its sleek design. The TV stands very firmly on the foot, which, like the edge, has a matte silver color. With the smaller sizes of The One, the foot is rotatable. The larger 65 inch version I am reviewing does not have a swivel base.

    After some settings change nice color rendering
    In terms of image quality, I notice that images are very sharp and clear. Although some colors seem a bit too bright or unkempt at the beginning, I like the color reproduction after changing a few settings. HDR images in particular have clear subtle color tones thanks to the HDR support. Black parts of the image look good dark for an LED TV. Another advantage: due to the reasonably high brightness, you can also safely watch TV in a brighter room, without the image losing contrast.

    Ambilight is a nice addition to most images
    The three-sided Ambilight works quickly and precisely. I find that the lighting on the wall behind the television in the colors of the picture works well, especially if you are watching TV in a dark room. When you get tired of the Ambilight, you can turn it off or less bright via the settings. I like that, because it's not equally impressive with everything you look at. For example, if you watch a film with many dark images, Ambilight mainly shows white and gray light.

    Standard sound, little bass
    While the more expensive LED televisions in the Philips line have a soundbar, The One has to make do with 2 built-in speakers. That is why the TV does sacrifice some sound quality here. For normal use, if you mainly watch live television or sports, the sound is fine. I notice that voices sound clear and can be heard clearly. As a movie buff, I do miss the deep bass tones. That is why I definitely recommend using a soundbar with this TV.

    Clear smart menu
    The Android smart menu is extensive and I find the operation smooth and simple. The apps I use most, such as Netflix, YouTube, and Disney+, are already installed. The remote control fits comfortably in the hand and feels sturdy. Philips OLED televisions have a remote control with a QWERTY keyboard on the back. I do miss that convenience with The One's remote control.

    A beautiful and high-quality cheap 4K television

    Bart S | 8 October 2020 | In the version: 50 inches | No soundbar | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Detailed and calm image, nice colors
    • Everything on 1 remote control
    • Ambilight really adds something
    • Has a swivel base!
    • Value for money
    • Setting image quality is a bit of a hassle
    • No OLED or 100 Hz, but then you pay double
    • sound not great, a soundbar is recommended

    This TV is seen as the best in its price range, and I can agree with that. Fine image, natural colors and sharp. This is especially apparent in nature documentaries such as our planet on netflix. Make sure that you set the picture quality correctly, the picture is not set the best out of the box. The ease of use of Android is great, all apps are available with a button on the remote control. Nice addition is ambilight, it makes the image wider. No OLED or 100 Hz, but that is not to be expected at this price.
    As with all flat TVs, sound is not great, a soundbar solves this.

    • design
    • Image quality
    • Ease of use
    • Built-in chromecast
    • No qwerty keyboard on the remote control

    After long hesitation, we ordered the 65-inch Philips The One (2020). We have never regretted our purchase. A really beautiful TV that seems to float because of the beautiful design. Most importantly, of course, is the image quality which is so phenomenal, so clear and sharp! I would recommend this TV to everyone. The installation is also done in no time. The advantage of this TV is that all my favorite apps are supported. Now I can access all apps at the touch of a button. An extra plus to this TV is the built-in chromecast.

    8,8/10
    Very good quality product for an attractive price
    • Very nice and sharp image
    • Nice remote control
    • User friendly
    • Attractive price considering the performance
    • In terms of design, the outer edges could be a little nicer

    At home we have always watched TV on Philips televisions, my father only bought from Philips, and we have actually continued this tradition.
    In the store we choose the most beautiful image, and the Philips image always gives us preference over other brands in terms of color, sharpness and intention.

  • 4.5 / 5 stars

    Good choice, even if you expect a bit more from a TV
    • easy installation
    • sharp and high-contrast image
    • Pause and record (via external USB memory)
    • Intuitive controls
    • Android OS
    • channel list cannot be organized yourself
    • does not decode all formats of media servers (including NAS) in network

    I doubted for a long time whether I would take a Philips again or move to one of the other major brands. We arrived at this device via the decision aid at Cool Blue and the Consumers' Association. Main points the great color depth, being able to record via an HD connected to a USB port and the Android OS.
    Not included the installation service of Cool Blue. Unpacking and assembling the base was ultimately more work than the installation itself, which was relatively simple (Go through pre-programmed steps). What was disappointing was that the channel list cannot be organized yourself and the order is as organized by the provider. Favorites lists can be created, but that is slightly different. My old TV had this option, but I can imagine that not many people took advantage of it.

    Best price for this quality
    • Best quality/price ratio
    • Supports all types of HDR: HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision
    • Amazing 3-sided ambilight when watching movies
    • Built-in Chromecast & Android TV
    • Quality design
    • Low refresh rate: 50Hz
    • Moderate sound (same for all modern slim TVs)
    • Heavy and unnecessarily big remote control

    I prefer LED TV over OLED TV because of burn-in possibilities in OLED TVs. I fear to have it after watching the same TV channel or playing some football games with the statically positioned scoreboard for a long time. I don't want to risk it after spending a lot of money on a TV. I think this TV is one of the best LED TVs that you can get, especially for this price.

    I have 58-inch version, which is the perfect size when there is 3 meters distance to the couch. The image quality is amazing. Some products in Netflix and Amazon Prime supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, the difference is noticeable.

    Ambilight helps to keep your focus on the movie. Also, it amazes all my friends already! You can set it by using video and audio easily with a dedicated button on the remote. When listening to music using the Spotify app, I set it to audio and the colors around keeps my mood high.

    I don't like the sound quality much and bought a separate soundbar with a subwoofer. It's not a must, but in my opinion very nice to have. Losing bass sounds especially when watching movies is not nice in my experience.

    I stated 50Hz as a low refresh rate as a con, but honestly, it hasn't bothered me. 100Hz should be better, but I haven't had any experience in a TV with a 100Hz refresh rate so I can't compare.
