7 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This 4K and 8K TV received an expert rating of 60 out of 100 from tweakers.net. If all the 4K and 8K TVs that were launched in the last 12 months are ranked by average expert review score then this television is in the bottom 9%.

Not 3D Compatible

Most new 4K and 8K TVs are not 3D compatible. The Philips 49PUS6561 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], or the UN78JU7500[pl_2756560_price] both from Samsung or the Grundig 55 VLX 8582[plb_3262884_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

Most comparable spec TVs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 49PUS6561 do not have a built-in camera. The 49PUS6561 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.

There are a number of other televisions which also have a built-in camera which you might also want to consider including the UN65JS9500[pl_2756557_price], or the UE60JU6400[pl_2894934_price] both from Samsung or the LG 75UH855[plb_3350140_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

Most TVs that have been on the market for the last year do not feature OLED technology. The 49PUS6561 is no exception to this as it too does not feature OLED technology.

We compared all the other TVs which also feature OLED technology to this TV and we think the U65S8806[pl_3212361_price], or the U55S8806[pl_3213698_price] both from TCL-Digital or the LG 55EF9509[plb_3155972_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 79mm thick TVs currently available including because of it's better review score, the 49PUS6551[pl_3301766_price], or the 49PUS6501[pl_3305115_price] both from Philips.
