You might feel that selecting and purchasing a LED TV from the market is an easy task, however, it is not there are numerous brands from, which you have to select one. This is almost an impossible task, but I have prepared a list of factors that could help you to select and purchase the best-LED TV on the market today.
LED TV buying guide
- Screen size
- Screen Resolution
- Screen Type
- Sound quality
- Connectivity option
1. Screen size
The first thing that comes to everyone’s mind while buying a TV is the size of the television. Nevertheless, most of the people do not realize the fact that screen size is very important and should be selected based on the ideal viewing distance and size of the room. To be frank, most people in India purchase a LED TV of a screen size just in a way that it could impress the guest. However, screen size should be dependent on the size of the room and on the distance at which you are sitting or standing to watch the TV. Therefore, before you purchase a LED TV, you should fix a place to mount the TV and a place you plan to fix the chairs. Based on these data alone, you could purchase a LED TV of the right screen size.
|TV Size||Ideal viewing distance|
So, why exactly does the ideal viewing distance matters? An ideal viewing distance is the distance from, which a viewer could read everything on the screen clearly without any issues.
2. Screen Resolution
Most of the people who consider buying a LED TV in India do not really care about the screen resolution. However, today, people are more careful enough to select a TV based on the quality of the picture. Nevertheless, they fail to realize the fact that the quality and sharpness of the picture depends on the resolution of the picture.
|Horizontal x Vertical Pixels||Resolution||Quality of picture|
|1280 x 720||720 Pixels||HD – High Definition|
|1920 x 1080||1080 Pixels||FHD – Full high Definition|
|2560 x 1440||1440 Pixels||WQHD – Wide Quad HD|
|3840 x 2160||2160 Pixels||UHD – Ultra HD|
It is always better to purchase a TV based on the type of service you are planning to use. If you were planning to use a DTH service, then you should know that in India, the DTH services come in HD and FHD quality only and it would be a waste of money if you purchase a TV with WQHD or UHD picture quality. On the other hand, if you are planning to use online streaming services like Netflix, Hotstar, and Amazon Prime etc. they provide WQHD and UHD quality picture and 1440 Pixels and 2160 Pixels LED TVs are best recommended. Now, you know exactly, which type of LED TV you need to purchase.
3. Screen Type
Even though, we call it LED TV. There are different screen types that come incorporated on a LED TV. Majority of the people who consider purchasing a LED TV from India neglect this factor as they think the factor is not so important. However, it would be a foolish decision to do so.
- Edge Lit Screen – Edge-lit LED TVs are those LED TVs with lights that are placed across the perimeter of the TV. This, in turn, makes the screen glow making it possible for viewers the watch the video clearly when looking at the center. This type of LED TVs consumes less power.
- Back Lit Screen – This type of LED TVs comes incorporated with lights behind the screen. The LEDs in this type of TV is equally distributed all over the TV so they are brighter and, in turn, costlier than edge-lit screen TV.
Therefore, it is very important that you consider purchasing a LED TV that could satisfy your needs.
4. Sound Quality
LED TVs come with different type of speakers. As we, all know there are different sound technologies today, Dolby, DTS, Dolby + DTS etc. Here are some of the common factors to consider while selecting a sound system used in a LED TV.
- Speaker output – For a 32- 42 Inch TV, a sound system with 15 Watt output is best-recommended
- Position of the speakers – It is best recommended that you purchase a LED TV with front-mounted speakers rather than speakers mounted at the bottom
- Sound adjustment features – This feature is very important while purchasing a LED TV, make sure that the device comes with options to fine tune the sound according to the shape and size of the room the TV is mounted.
5. Connectivity options
With the technology developing these days, the concept of using antennas for receiving TV service signals is long gone. We today have HD, FHD, WQHD, and UHD quality DTH, and online streaming services. The connections could be wireless or through a cable. It is very important that you purchase a product with both wireless and wired connection options rather than purchasing a device with any one option.
LED TVs come from different brands; some of them are international and some Indian brands.
