Some Quick Tips
Before we get into details, these are just a few short tips that you need to keep in mind as you look at all the features.
- More is More
In the case of TV’s, the latest technology is by-far better than the ones before it. So, if you have the budget and are still confused between HD and 4K LED TV, close your eyes and go for the 4K LED TV set.
- Refresh Rate is Important
You need to look for at least 50 to 60 Hz refresh rate to enjoy the high-paced action you dream about in both sports and the games that you play on your LED TV. A higher refresh rate provides smoother motion in everything that you play.
- OLED’s are Better than Others
OLED TV’s are better than any and all LCD sets so don’t settle for less.
- Look for More HDMI Ports
You should get a TV set that offers at least four HDMI ports or have the newer version HDMI 2.0, if you can.
- Get a Sound Bar
The thin LED technology has ruined the quality of sound for most LED TV’s. When you buy a smart LED TV or any other, it is important that you plan to get a sound bar sometime soon to complement your television set.
Now that you have taken a look at the quick tips, it’s time that we see the details of all your best LED TV features.
The picture resolution usually refers to the crispness and the sharpness of the Tv picture, usually in the terms of the horizontal lines of pixels. 4K LED TV offers the best screen resolution and has four times the number of pixels as in HDR, thus the name 4K. The advantage of the increased number of pixels is that the tiniest objects on the screen show amazing details and the text is sharper and easier to read. 1080p might still be the most common resolution today, but 4K is becoming increasingly popular and is a better choice if you want a television that will last you years.
HDR is a new feature of the 4K LED TV and stands for ‘High Dynamic Range’. This resolution delivers more colors, has better contrast levels and are brighter than the average HD television. The content though, is mostly available in the HD version, but 4K LED TV is becoming slowly but increasingly popular. You should not choose a television set just for the HDR format, but you should buy an HDR set as the format is slowly gaining momentum and becoming popular in the masses.
The contrast ratio generally describes the level of brightness that a television set can display. With a good contrast ratio, shadows and hues appear in detail. If you want to manually see which set performs better in terms of the contrast ratio, we advise that you play a movie or a clip that is really dark and see how the television set performs in the dark light.
With this guide, we are sure that you would find it easier when you choose the best LED TV for your home and would be extremely smart about it.
