Philips Cinema 21:9 (56PFL9954H/12)

19 April 2014
  • Summary: The Philips Cinema 21:9 is aimed at a very specific audience. If you're a movie lover with deep pockets, you'll be very happy with this TV. Some projectors offer a better home-cinema solution, but they aren't all that suited to everyday use.
  • Cons: Aspect ratio isn't suited to all material; expensive.

  • Pros: Exclusive - currently the only TV in CinemaScope format., Rich connectivity with five HDMI inputs., Powerful sound., Heaps of multimedia functions, including YouTube access., Low power-consumption given the size of the screen.

Expert Review

5 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Not so long ago, Philips abandoned Australia’s TV market, thereby depriving us all of its superb televisions. Fortunately another distributor is now bringing in certain premium models, with Philips’ blessing. And surely the ultra widescreen Philips Cinema 21:9 56PFL9954H LCD display has to be premium. The ‘56’ stands for the picture diagonal in inches, so that comes to 142cm. But this is not a 16:9 display.

Philips Cinema 21:9 56PFL9954H

What Hi-Fi?
3 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Philips Cinema 21:9 (or the 56PFL9954H) is a unique TV and yes, it really does look as amazing in the flesh as it does on screen. What we have here is a television set no taller than your average 42in flatscreen, but with a diagonal screen size of 56in and an aspect ratio of 2.39:1, or 21:9. And there is a clear logic behind what might be seen by some as madness.
  • Pros: Looks amazing, packed with features, huge picture, detailed, colourful images, handles motion well, sounds above average
  • Cons: Misgivings over how the TV handles incoming signals, cost

21 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Wow. Das oder ähnliches kommt einem automatisch über die Lippen, wenn man den ersten Cinemascope-Fernseher der Welt sieht. Philips beweist viel Mut zum Außergewöhnlichen und erntet damit Anerkennung in der Fachwelt. Sicher auch von den Konsumenten: Die Wirkung des superbreiten Kinobildes ist schlicht phänomenal.
