50PUS6704/12 from Philips : Our view

What about the new Philips 50PUS6704/12 ?

Recently Philips has released information about its new model of television . It is the 50PUS6704/12.
Classified in the mid-range category. we thought we had to have a closer look at it in order to check whether the constructor had done a good job or not.
In its 50 inches model , this television offers a definition dedicated to the pictures treatment.
We are dealing with a rather large model.
In addition this Philips displays a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  Even if it is in a mid-range position, it offers interesting specifications, partly justifying its price.
Should we let ourselves be convinced by this 50PUS6704/12 Philips ? All answer elements just after.

The design of the Philips 50PUS6704/12

Sober but in line with current trends. Philips has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
Nothing has changed in the design of this new model. Philips continues to ride the wave of its design to which we are now accustomed.
A good overall score for this TV; it corresponds to design in the spirit of the times. A quality of materials and a visual aspect that does not make you insensitive.
The Philips 50PUS6704/12 is quite standard, flat.
Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.This TV could simply be one of the best in terms of design for mid-range. It has nothing to envy from its competitors. Even when it’s off, you won’t get tired of looking at it; only happiness!

TV screen presentation Philips 50PUS6704/12

The Philips could hardly do better than this 50PUS6704/12 with a Direct LED screen.
With this new model, Philips confirms one of its technological choices. The quality of the LED gives an excellent rendering. It is one of the best devices in its range.

With regard to the display, the company proposes a Ultra HD 4K resolution. Which puts it among the above-average TVs in its range.
With a screen size of 50 inches, this 50PUS6704/12 is at the top of its range. Beyond its size, we are still in front of a beautiful quality screen.
By providing it with a frequency of 60 Hz, this television is therefore less well placed than its competitors. Shifted image and lack of precision make this model a low end of the range.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a Ultra HD 4K quality picture .
To conclude the display part, we could say that it is interesting and effective; it is a mid-range TV that is worth the detour.

50PUS6704/12 from Philips – The sound

It is the custom to say that a good sound comes from a device with a lot of watts, however Philips has managed to combine average audio system power with very good sound quality.
For the sound part, the television set is equipped with two speakers and provides a sound power of 10 W.
In summary, you get an average rendering.
However, we will recommend to add speakers that will allow a better experience.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 50PUS6704/12 Philips, it is the word correct that comes out.

Thanks to its above-average number of connections, this TV is very generous.
