I’ve pinned it, but please sort them chronologically or at least put the review date and software version used. Since the product is improving fast, not all reviews will reflect the correct status as of today.
Very good suggestion and will be most useful, thanks!
Another suggestion. For example, there are already some people sharing their experience with the PPM but it would be great if we have a template for that with some basic information that is important not only for the backers but also for Philips so they can understand the customer’s experience better. A simple example would be:
Software Update Version:
From all discussions so far, I find that these are questions we all ask and this is like the prerequisite info we need to get an idea about the conditions in which the review is made.

Let me know what you guys think. This would also help Philips tackle issues and provide timely feedback if needed.
Just now read that PHC review - assuming on older firmware?
But that’s pretty amazing that it achieves 600 plus lumens on normal, and over 400 on energy saver, and then they report 2:24 hours on normal and 3+ hours on energy saver. That means I can probably use this with the latest firmware to get through an NFL game without plugging in which is incredibly promising!
Right now my Nebula Capsule II probably gets just north of 2 hours on it’s battery mode, which is probably 150 lumens at best (maybe even 100 lumens, I don’t know how to measure). So this result is making me giddy for the PPM, as long as YouTubeTV works.
One question - is this PHC blog stating this only achieves 225:1 contrast ratio? That seems, kind of abysmal, but hard to put in context with my current projector experience. I realize that projectors cannot achieve TV like/OLED like contrast ratios, but I was expecting north of 500:1?
That’s my concern. I honesty am not much interested in knowing if PHC sample is perfectly calibrated, especially after they sent him a hand revised one, I’d rather prefer a random sample (possibly mine) to be reasonably well calibrated.
Yep, my concern as well. If they sent a fully calibrated unit to the reviewer, it is not a representation of an uncalibrated retail unit.
@Philips_Support_P Do you know if the PHC reviewer already has the updated review unit? And what was the reason for sending an updated unit instead of simply sending the firmware update? Thanks for the information!
The sample sent to PassionHomeCinema doesn’t have any special calibration, it’s the same what everyone else received. One difference is that we preloaded the manual color adjustment app, which was removed from 1.0.25. We don’t have many ‘extra’ units to ship around since backer shipments take priority.
