Choosing the right screen size matters! Know how many people in your family watch T.V at once and where you’re going to place your T.V. set. Though a bigger space will need bigger screen, a golden rule is that you must invest on the bigger T.V. However, for non-conventional T.V. watching areas like bedroom, smaller screen T.V. is better. Also consider the distance of your viewing position, which can be 1.1/2 times than the screen diagonal. For example, you can watch 40 inch screen from the distance of 5 to 8 feet.
(40×2: 80—80 inches means 6.6 feet)
HD, UHD or 4K. Which one you have decided to take home?
The question may make many people puzzled as they don’t know these screen resolution differences.
Well, screen resolution means the sharpness and clarity of the TV picture. The more pixels a T.V. has, the clear picture it will have. A basic T.V set comes with 720 pixels while an HD format supports 1080.
Today, Ultra HD or 4k are advanced level of TV screen and has four times the pixels ratio than HDTV. It goes like 3480×2160 pixels! There is superb improvement in image quality as they appear richer, clear and lifelike. Choose it if your budget allow it. Sadly, there are few Ultra HD channels available and the existing HD content doesn’t produce 4K quality on ultra HD T.V. HDR is an upcoming improved TV resolution technology that goes beyond 4k.
Refresh rate is determined by the time taken by TV to change the images on the screen. A basic T.V set has the capacity of changing 60 frames per second which means 60Hz. But a 60 Hz rate is not compatible with the HDTV as it creates a motion blur. In simple words, a good refresh rate is essential to make the footage appear fast without jittering or blurring.
That’s why they come with minimum 120 HZ refresh rate. So, it makes sense to buy a T.V with at least 120 HZ refresh rate. Steer away from the sets with the phrases like “effective refresh rate” or without the actual refresh rate information.
So, these are the things telling you about the picture quality of the screen.
