Purchasing a smart high-definition led TV isn’t as simple as purchasing a phone; there are hundreds of models to select from, each with its own set of features. You’ll want to choose wisely. The following is a comprehensive Smart TV buying guide with important considerations to make while selecting the finest affordable smart television for your home.
The Main Factors to Consider
- Dimensions of the Screen: When buying a smart TV, the screen size is the most significant thing to consider. It is very dependent on where you want to put it, the size of the space, and the number of people who will be watching at any given time. Choose a 32-inch TV if the viewing distance is less than 5 feet. Choose 43-inches if the distance is between 5-6 feet. A 46- or 50-inch TV would also be excellent for viewing distances of 6-7 feet. You can use 50- and 55-inch panels for lengths greater than 8 feet.
- Resolution of the screen: The screen resolution, or how sharp and crisp it is, is defined by the number of pixels on the screen. A greater resolution translates to more pixels and a clearer image. Full-HD panels feature four times the number of pixels as Ultra-HD (4K) panels. As a result, the objects on the screen will appear more detailed and richer. Thanks to technological developments, we now have 8K televisions, but you’ll need actual 8K content to get the most out of it.
- Rate of Refreshment: The refresh rate is critical for any high-definition LED TV.It’s the number of times a display’s content is refreshed every second. In Hertz, it is defined as (Hz). 60Hz is the common refresh rate for television displays. If you’re buying a high-end television set, though, you should look for a higher number. Smoother motion is achieved with a higher refresh rate, such as 90Hz, 120Hz, 144Hz, or more. You won’t see any blurriness in swiftly moving objects, as is the case with ordinary panels. It’s not a must-have function, but it’s necessary if you want to play games or use your TV as a computer display.
- Sound: When purchasing a smart TV, audio is one of the features that are sometimes overlooked. Checking the audio wattage is a good rule of thumb (mentioned in Watts). The greater the number, the louder the television. This, however, does not indicate whether the audio would distort at greater volumes; you’ll have to look into it in the reviews or ask someone in the store.
- Features of Connectivity: You should also look at the number of ports on the television. Look for at least four HDMI ports so you don’t have to swap out cords every time you want to connect a device. Although most 4K TVs enable HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection), only the latest models support HDCP 2.2. Check for it in the spec sheet to avoid any problems when streaming from a 4K source device (such as a Blu-ray player) or a service that supports HDCP 2.2.
- Pricing: Last but not least, you should determine whether the Smart TV’s pricing reflects its features and performance. Checking the competition, i.e. other TVs in the segment, is the simplest way to do so.
