BUYING GUIDE FOR TElevision
What kind of factors to look out for?
Whether you’re looking for a basic or a high-quality TV, the biggest hurdle while buying an LED TV will be the screen size. While many have suggested that bigger the better, yet it all depends on how many people watch the TV at one, the size of the room and your budget. If you have a huge living room or a bedroom, you should opt for a larger size. While considering all this, you should also look out if the TV feels comfortable in the spot and if it is the right spot for a TV. Choose a size which will keep you seated at an appropriate distance from the TV screen.
Resolution of a TV is best defined as the sharpness of the TV picture, usually in terms of horizontal lines of pixels. The resolution of your TV becomes the most important aspect to decide on as it decides on the quality of the imagery you’re about to see. Resolution is measured by lines of detail, defined by a number, and categorized as either interlaced or progressive scan, patented by either the lowercase letter 'i' or 'p'. Most of the resolutions come in 720p or 1080i resolution. Although 1080i has more detail, the best picture quality is given by the 4K or UHD TV which ensures you get the minute details and natural colors while there are no image distortions.
Even when you have a TV with the best specifications, you are sometimes stuck with poor sound quality. Many manufacturers concentrate wholly on the display specifications while completely ignoring the audio aspect. While buying an LED, make sure you have the Surround Sound equipped TV and you will be able to enjoy the wholesome goodness of video and audio.
The refresh rate, expressed in Hertz (Hz) defines how many times per second a picture is refreshed on the screen. The standard refresh rate is 60 times per second, or 60 Hz. Different televisions handle the faster refresh rates in different ways. One method is to merely insert black images between the original pictures, misleading the viewer's eyes into seeing a less blurry, more solid picture. The second technique is to generate and insert new images showing a state of movement in between the two adjacent pictures to display more realistic-looking motion. While buying an LED TV, get a TV with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Modern LED TVs come with HDMI, RFI coaxial, S-video, RGB, and VGA monitor ports to connect them with. HDMI connections are a must when it comes to LED TVs as they support all kinds of devices that offer gaming, sound and storage. Always make sure your system has more than enough ports so that you can accommodate as much utilities as you can. If you buy a 4K LED TV, make sure it supports HDMI 2.0 as it will help in connecting the future Ultra HD sources.
Nowadays, there is almost a handful of companies that provide all the necessary features but these are never the ones you want. While all this is happening, you have the media streaming devices to your rescue and they help in improving the visual experience and everything you need to watch. While buying a streaming device, you should look for the compatibility with your TV. Also make sure that the media streaming device that you buy has the shows and movies that you want to watch without having to scour the internet for hours.
When buying a new TV, always opt for a bigger size than you were initially planning to buy. Due to the increase in number of TV sizes, there is a direct correlation between recommended screen size and seating distance. The further away you sit, the smaller your screen appears. The selection of the TV will also be dependent on the size of your room and the entertainment cabinet the TV is installed in.
