It sounds like your problem is that you simply don't understand how brands work (or indeed, what a brand actually is).

TPV Technology had been making Philips entry level TVs since 2004 in a joint venture known as TP Vision. TPV Technology slowly increased their stake in TP Vision until they acquired all of it. 3,000 Philips staff were transferred to TP Vision when it became a wholly own subsidiary of TPV Technology.


TPV Technology had been making displays since the 1960s under it's other brands.

I'd say these won't last long in Lidl on Friday morning, based on past experiences I'd say each store will only have a handful and they could be sold out before the shop even opens if people start queuing early.

PCWorld/Currys have a few reduced to €449.

Tesco have what looks to be the next model up with Ambilight etc.on a Black Friday special. Can't find it online but think it was a 50" 6500 series for about 470 Euro.

Has a satelite input so can get FTA channels but I don't think it's freesat.

The LG mentioned below is certified freesat HD.

While the Philips 6500 does have the ambilight I'm actually leaning more towards the LG myself.

Cheers. I'm half in the market for a TV so there's a danger I may come out with one when I just go in for bread and milk.

I cant see any youtube reviews for this exact model.

I'd say these will be snapped up regardless.
50 inch for the bedroom?
