14 Reasons For

Reasonably Priced

One customer mentioned in their reviews that this TV was good value for money. Trustedreviews.com wrote on expert review site Trusted Reviews in October last year “The Dutch brand also had another innovative – and potentially affordable – TV series up its sleeve in the shape of the PUS8601s” in their review of the Philips 65PUS8601.

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its TVs

On average Philips 4K and 8K TVs have good ratings compared to other brands as do all televisions manufactured by Philips.

3D Compatible

Unlike most of the other televisions that have been on the market for around the same time as the 65PUS8601 which are not 3D compatible, the Philips 65PUS8601 is 3D compatible.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 3D compatible televisions currently available including the UE65JS9000[pl_2824054_price], or the UE65JS9500[pl_2824055_price] both from Samsung which has better reviews.

TVs which are 3D compatible that might be worth considering include the Samsung UE75JU7000[plb_2824304_price].
