Do you want to enrich the look of your living room with a beautiful TV? Or, are you in need of one and don't have proper knowledge about TV and how to choose an appropriate one? If you are looking for basic knowledge or tips to consider while buying a TV, then keep on reading.
The trend of TV has been somehow decreasing due to the advancement of smartphones and the internet for the past decade. However, TV nowadays is as smart as smartphones with a bigger screen and better customer experience. Buying a Television for your home can be stressful with all the budget that one has to pour into it. Here, are few things to consider while buying a TV that'll cool your stress down.
Bigger the size, the fancier the TV, and the better the user experience. However, one must not forget the capacity of the room. Measure the dimensions of the room and thoroughly examine the size of the TV that you require for your room. You might regret buying a 55-inches bigger, fancier TV if you have a small room of just 7-ft height and 8-ft length. So, select the size that is suitable for your room.
Viewing distance, when put straightforward, is the distance from the TV that must be kept in order to prevent any kind of stress in your eyes. Normally, a distance of 4-ft is a must if you're buying a 32-inches LED TV. And, for TV with 40-48 inches, a viewing distance of at least 7-ft is a must. Likewise, for 55-inch or 65-inch LED TV, a 9-ft viewing distance is needed.
For better viewing experience, the resolution should be considered. If you are looking TV for normal usage like for watching news once or twice a day, and are short on budget, then you can go for a 720p resolution. Nevertheless, if you have enough budget and use the TV for gaming, watching movies, Netflix, etc., then don't settle for less than 1080p i.e. FHD. If possible go for UHD, or else go after FHD.
TV must have a good screen with good visuals, but the audio output of the TV should also be checked. Budget TV may have a pleasing display but the audio output may be a disappointment. So, try to get a soundbar speaker to enrich your experience with better sound quality.
The more connectivity options better the experience. If you want to use the TV for other purposes like gaming, watching movies, etc., then look out for other connectivity options like HDMI, USB port, 3.5 mm audio jack, and other AV ports. Also, the presence of Bluetooth connectivity will be an advantage.
Refresh rate means the number of times the picture on the screen gets refreshed within a second. The higher the refresh rate is smoother the video appears. Go for TV with a refresh rate between 60Hz to 120Hz.
The contrast ratio describes the range of brightness levels your TV can display. Better the contrast, better the brightness levels. There are different ways of measuring the contrast ratio; so, check thoroughly while looking out for contrast.
Not all 'smart TV' is smart. Some smart TV offer variety of apps and features, whereas some lack in such apps. Better go after the Google-certified or android-certified Smart TV that offers a variety of features including play store, voice assistant, etc.
