Cheers for that. Was watching that tv for a bit. Harvey Norman has it gone back up to 649 since last week.

Tesco Liffey Valley had (not sure if still has it, but it was only a couple of days ago) the 50 inch model por 595 (and currys for 599)
Richersounds still has it for 649, and that is a good price.

I see the 43" is €472.00 in Argos as well at the moment. Great price for it.

I bought the one from tesco, I had an old philips 42pus8404, and went for the 50 (thought about the 58 from richersounds, but it was too big)
Ambilight, as always, great.
It has android 9 in it, so you can install apps and games. It can do picture in picture between the channels (satellite and cable/aerial inputs) and hdmi, or hdmi and internal apps (so i have the virgin set top box in PIP in one corner while it is on advertisements and check youtube,etc)
Remote control, on the back, has a keyboard.It has a microphone to talk to google or alexa. Of coruse, chromecast,etc
It has all formats of HDR (including dolby vision) and netflix recognizes it.
The ambilight can be linked as well to philips hue (the wifi lights) and to a new speaker (philips wifi home speaker i think) that has ambilight too.
It can follow the video, the audio, a flag (that you choose), a color set by you. You can turn off the screen and leave the audio and ambilight running.
And can set, if you have it in your room, to use the ambilight as a sunset to help you relax at the end of the day, and alarm to wake you up.

Sounds great - I currently have the Sony Bravia 55XD8577 4K Ultra HD, but this 58" Philips does sound like a step up

I have an older model amiblight (55") and absolutely love the lights, couldn't go back to normal tv's, serious first world problem. The smart capabilities aren't great but I have sky Q and and xbox 1 hooked up so don't have to use it.

Great deal!

Actually looking for a 50" at the moment if anyone comes across one, the 43" seems a great deal!

Seriously tempted by the 58" version of this. Have been looking for a 55" 4k TV at a decent price, and the ambilight have really caught my eye.

Would like to buy from Richer Sounds, but they are beaten by a good bit on this.

Think this would be the one I would go for - seems to be the consensus on HUKD
