The new technology and all the advanced features available now in modern devices like TVs, smartphones, tablets, and other electronics are definitely a blessing. Or, you might think so until you have to buy one of these gadgets. All their features sound extremely good on paper and in presentations, but when you actually have to make a purchase, you realize how confusing they can be.
Things like the resolution you want/need (4K or not?), the type of screen (LCD or OLED?), diagonal length (bigger?) and lots of other technical terms crowd together and make you miss simpler times when saying you want a flat screen TV was enough. It’s true that the purchasing process got a bit more complicated, but you don’t have to despair. We put together a short list of features that are very important when choosing the TV technology you want. These are the ones you have to look out for.
Understand the difference in name
Usually, the name of a TV tells you everything you want to know. First of all, you’ll see the diagonal length, but this is easy to understand. The second feature that can be seen in the name is the type. This is usually presented as an acronym of 3 or 4 big letters like LED, LCD, or OLED. There used to be a fourth one, plasma TVs, but this type didn’t catch on and right now there are no new plasma TV devices on the market (read more about plasma TVs on Wikipedia).
Even though these terms seem highly technical, the explanation is simple:
- LCD is short from liquid crystal panels that use a fluorescent light to create the image. They are not as popular as they used to be.
- LED TVs are more popular LCD panels that use an LED light to create the image. Actually, these are the hit of the moment as they are affordable and offer a good quality of the image.
- OLED panels offer the best quality of image possible right now, but they are quite expensive and out of the range of a normal budget.
So, the main difference between quality and extra-quality is in the name tag and in the price. If you’re wondering which type of panel would be better suited for an enhanced TV experience, then the LED LCD panel is the best choice for now. Also, make sure your TV provider offers the best quality possible; otherwise, your TV will display the same blunt image. Take a peek at the Direct TV Premier package so you’ll understand the difference between mediocre and amazing TV quality.
The resolution, diagonal length, and contrast
These 3 features matter the most (immediately after selecting the panel type).
- The hype on the resolution is 4K for now, but the prices are still a bit steep. If you can wait, the situation will be different by the end of the year. If not, an HD TV will do the job just perfectly.
- The contrast is important as it shows the quality of colors your TV will produce. So, the higher the contrast the deeper the colors and the better the detail.
- When we’re talking about size, don’t be shy! The bigger the better, but make sure that you have the necessary space for a big TV.
As you can see, choosing a TV is not easy. Still, this is one of the gadgets that we have to own in order to create a better and richer entertainment experience. This means you’ll have to learn a bit about TV technology in order to know how to choose the perfect one for you.
