Philips 8506 review: Talented LED TV gets most things right

There's stacks of catch-up apps, with many shortcuts on the included remote control, to watch all your favorite shows with ease. (image credit: Philips)
The four ports facilitate eARC handover. However, the panel is 60Hz, so you'll never get 120fps high frame-rate content (not that it matters for most). (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Philips' big appeal is its Ambilight system, which projects light beyond the screen in real-time to dramatic effect. It's a three-sided system here. (image credit: Philips)
The silver-color is more interesting than dull black, although it's a little plasticky. (image credit: Philips)
The 8506 combines a consistent level of performance with Ambilight and a bullet-proof Android smart platform. (image credit: Philips)
