To understand modern TVs is not as difficult as it seems. In unfamiliar terms, it is easy to get confused, but almost always they denote relatively simple functions. The main thing is to find out what lies behind foreign words and abbreviations.
Often, marketers are trying to surprise buyers with the number of opportunities TV. Remember, the principle “the more, the better” does not work here – some of the new technologies may not be useful to you. This article will assist you to understand what to look for when buying a new TV and what the tricky terms mean.
Usually, TV chooses in size. But not always a big screen is excellent. If the TV with a meter diagonal is cheap, most likely it has a lousy picture and limited functionality. Do not buy a cheap TV with a large diagonal. Check the image quality and additional features.
Many manufacturers believe that the screen size is the main thing. Therefore, they produce models with poor-quality matrixes and poor fillings to beat the competition due to the price.
Large TV is not suitable for small spaces. You, probably, noticed that it is impossible to see the large image close up entirely. Therefore, if you overdo it with the size, it will be hard to focus on the picture. You will have to strain your eyes, using peripheral vision- from this you will quickly get tired, instead of resting.
The general rule is as follows: the diagonal of the TV should be three times less than the area from the eyes to the screen. If you choose an ultra-high definition LED TV for particular furniture, such as a cabinet, table or shelf in the closet, do not be lazy to measure them with a tape measure and record the dimensions. Grab the tape measure in the store and check the dimensions are already there. Do not try to do it by eye- you can easily make a mistake by a couple of centimeters, because of which the TV does not fit in the right place.
Please note that not all large TVs are on one foot. Some of them have two, and they are located at the edges. Such a TV may not fit on too small a pedestal.
How to understand which is better: Full HD or 4K?
Full HD is a modern standard for television and Internet video. Almost all TV channels and streaming services show video in Full HD. With this TV you can fully enjoy current films and distinguish small details on the screen. But be prepared that in a few years the TV will become obsolete. Top LED TV brands in India told that Full HD will replace Ultra HD.
- Ultra HD is the standard for the near future. It is four times sharper Full HD. But while he has his drawbacks:
- Many TV channels still broadcast in low resolution – on a 4K TV, this picture looks terrible;
- Ultra HD movies “weigh” a lot – with low Internet speeds, they cannot be watched online, only downloaded;
The minimum resolution for a 4K TV is Full HD. If you turn on the 720p movie, enjoy the picture will not work. Remember, until about 2010 no one shot movies in Full HD.
Over time, some of these problems will go away, but for now, you will have to endure. Although gradually providers of digital TV are moving to 4K.
