Trusted Reviews
26 December 2011
  • Summary: Philips attempts to make its 21:9-ratio TVs more mainstream with a set that also marks the brands’ first foray into passive 3D technology
  • Pros: Watching films in 21:9 never grows old, Crosstalk-free 3D, Very good with 2D, too
  • Cons: Some sources don’t lend themselves to 21:9 expansion, It’s expensive by normal 50in TV standards, Ambilight looks a bit awkward

Philips 50PFL7956T Cinema 21:9 Gold

Pocket Lint
2 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Philips 21:9 Gold is a superb TV which truly earned its place in the short list for Best TV 2011 in the Pocket-lint Gadget Awards. For the money, there’s simply no better way to watch high definition films.
  • Pros: Decent 2D picture quality, great handling of non-HD video, superb movie-watching experience
  • Cons: 3D could be better, IPTV not as good as some other brands

Картинка, 3D, ширина – все супер… Philips опять молодец. Обзор 3D-телевизора Philips 50PFL7956T

DGL
22 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Какой бы телевизор ни стоял в вашей гостиной, при просмотре Blu-ray-дисков вам неизбежно придется мириться с черными полосами сверху и снизу от изображения. Все дело в том, что киноформат отличается от форм-фактора экрана ТВ: соотношение сторон составляет не 16:9, как у телевизора, а 21:9.

  • Conclusion: Précisons tout de suite que ce Cinema 21/9 Gold n’a pas besoin de régime alimentaire spécial : il se nourrit de programmes actuels, lesquels sont soit au ratio 4/3 (vieux DVD , certaines chaines TV), soit 16/9 (le reste). Il les adapte tous à son propre ratio via un zoom plus ou moins déformant.
  • Pros: Pas de barres noires avec les films en Cinémascope, Excellent ratio encombrement/effet immersif, Deux paires de lunettes 3D incluses, Présentation sobre, Pas d’ effet fantôme en 3D, Noirs fouillés, Compensation de mouvement redoutable, y compris en 3D, Son agréable
  • Cons: Télécommande peu pratique, Pied pas évident à mettre en place, Directivité verticale en 3D, Wi‑Fi en option, Très tatillon en lecture multimédia, Préréglages pas toujours pertinent

COMPUTER BILD

  • Excerpt: Für Kinofans muss es das Cinemascope-Format (21:9) sein, damit sie Hollywood-Knüller ohne schwarze Balken genießen können. Kein Problem für den Philips 50PFL7956K mit satten 127 Zentimetern Bilddiagonale.
