The new Philips 6809 exists in 40, 50 and 58 inch models. The TVs have Philips’ characteristic sleek look with a very slim bezel and a minimalistic stand.

Prices have steadily fallen throughout 2013 and 2014, and Philips is following this trend. However, you will have to make some sacrifices. First off, Philips has decided to remove its trademark Ambilight system from the 6809 TVs.

Philips has also decided to pass on HDMI 2.0, which is required to connect future 4K players, as well as HEVC, which means that the 6809 TVs are unable to stream Netflix and other streaming services in glorious 4K.

On the other hand, Smart TV functionality is built-in, including apps for Netflix, Spotify and Youtube. The TVs also feature USB recording and Philips’ Multiroom function that allows you to stream recordings to other TVs inside your house.

40-inch 40PUS6809 is available now for around 650 Euro, 50-inch 50PUS6809 for 999 Euro and 58-inch 58PUS6809 for 1799 Euro, but prices can vary depending on your region.
