Could you ask Phillips if this will be available to buy in the UK?

Or will this one be like pretty much every flagship model it gets plenty of reviews in the UK but isn't available to buy anywhere in the UK.

For colours, is this TV as good as a plasma screen?

"The Philips 55PFL8008 also deserves major kudos for the sharpness of its HD pictures. The level of precision and detail it delivers is as high as we’ve ever seen from a non-4K TV"
I have to strongly disagree. After testing side by side, with similar settings, 4 different 8008S sets with 8000 series Samungs (in shops), the Samsungs have a distinct and very easy to spot advantage regarding the level of detail. Still would not buy a Samsung yet as Philips does (for now at least) better motion handling.... As it turns out I am not sure what to upgrade my Philips 9664 with...

The fatal flaw there is 'in shops'. Most (pretty much all) use demo modes in shops that up all the detail and brightness settings to make them look better in those conditions. It's not representative of what you see when used using normal viewing settings.

That goes without saying, which is why in 2 of the instances I tested using Philips demos (the Hong Kong connection and Ultimate Sharpness). One instance was by running a HDMI splitter from a Panasonic DMP-BDT500, another running the same demos from a USB stick, the other 2 by simply watching the same shop demo running on both Philips and Samsung side by side. The results were similar.

Having both an LG 50" Plasma TV and this Philips, the Philips knocks spots off the LG. The colours are far brighter and the overall picture is absolutely amazing. The ambilight feature is a revelation and makes watching TV a far more immersive experience. I would personally never return to Plasma.
