Looking for a decent-sized LED TV for your adequately spaced living room? Like other forms of technology, TVs have come a long way over the last decade. Today’s TVs come with a host of features and options that it’s almost impossible to make the correct choice.
This article will help you choose the right TV based on your specific requirements, and ensure you pick one that has all the features you’re going to need.
But before we get down to the details of the different options available, let’s discuss another important aspect of TV purchase – the size.
The Right Sized TV
Thanks to technology and large scale consumerism, the cost of a new LED TV is highly cost-effective. Owing to this affordability, buyers generally tend to get swayed by hyper marketing and end up choosing the biggest TV their money can afford.
But the real question is: do you really need that gargantuan 65-inch television? This is especially true when you consider your living room space.
An oversized television can overpower your living room and become the centre of attention. So this begs the question, what is the right sized TV for you? For the longest time, 32 inches has been the standard TV size amongst most TV manufacturers. A 32-inch TV provides all the viewing pleasure and is generally the best fit for most living room spaces. So you can go with it and you will be completely satisfied.
Features to Look for
Although most TVs come with standard features, there are a few recent tech additions that manufacturers have added. These tech additions could mean the difference between an average TV viewing experience and a great one.
Televisions that come with built-in smart features, or smart TVs, are a great choice as they give you the ability to download your favourite apps that you can watch directly from your TV. No need for messy dongles and expensive cable boxes, simply connect to the internet and stream all your favourite shows, movies, and series directly on your smart TV.
One of the best-selling smart TVs online is the Mi smart TV. Mi has, over the years, built a reputation for reliability and cost-effectiveness. A similarly spec’d TV from Sony or Panasonic would cost far more, and give more or less the same viewing experience.
High Definition or 4K
HD televisions are all the rage. And why wouldn’t they be? The viewing experience is great, and the screen resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels is standard among most TV formats. If you’re looking for great viewing experience and don’t want to spend a fortune, a 32-inch TV with 1920 × 1080 pixel resolution can cost less than 15,000 INR. Another great option is to go for a 4K television.
These are great for viewing videos at extremely high resolution with crystal clear picture quality and attention to detail. Although 4K televisions are slightly on the expensive side, they do tend to have better value in the long run. The only drawback is that 4K formats are still on the limited side in India. So if you’re watching an HD video on your 4K television, you might feel a little ripped-off.
Nonetheless, most formats are gradually moving towards 4K, especially in the West. If you are looking to do a little future-proofing, then a 4K UHD TV is definitely the way to go.
