Save up to $1,000 on 4K QLED TVs
What to consider when buying a TV
TV screens are measured diagonally from corner to corner. Generally, the larger the screen, the farther back you’ll want to sit in order to comfortably watch TV. If you’re cramped for space, you probably don’t want the biggest television they make. That said, if you’re torn between two different-sized models, no one’s ever regretted going with the bigger size…
A screen’s resolution refers to the number of pixels that it can display. 4K and Ultra HD TVs have the exact same resolution, so don’t be fooled by tricky marketing tactics. If you’re springing for a new set, look for 4K — it’s the new standard for HD TVs.
Higher refresh rate reduces motion blur to give a smoother picture. While most TVs generally have a refresh rate of 60Hz, many higher-end TVs have a maximum rate of 120Hz. But refresh rates higher than 120Hz simply don’t exist. So if you see crazy high numbers, it’s a mere marketing ploy.
OLED or LED?
OLED TVs boast improved contrast and deeper, richer blacks. But for now, LG is the only company that makes OLED panels, which are currently available in LG and Sony TVs. Since OLED technology is still new and LED TVs also offer a high-quality viewing experience, you might want to wait until more options are available before spending a chunk of change.
