Top 5 things to consider when buying a TV

1. Where in your house will you be putting your TV?

What size of TV you need depends upon whereabouts it is going in your house. If your TV is for your living room, generally you'll want a TV that is 50" and above. If it's for a bedroom then you'd want to look at TVs around 32". Measure the space you would like your new TV to go in to make sure you have enough room behind and around the TV for cables. Also, make sure your TV is close to a wall with a mains connection so you are able to plug it in. It is also important to consider how far you need to sit away from your TV as some technologies will produce a distorted image if you sit too close.

2. What screen resolution do you need?

To put it simply, the screen resolution is determined by the number of pixels in the TV’s display. Most TVs now have a HD resolution, so you are guaranteed a good picture quality. 720p TVs have a 720 pixels in the horizontal rows of the display, offering a clear picture. 1080p, or Full HD, displays provide a higher quality image. With 1080 pixels across the display, details are much clearer. 4K TVs have four times more pixels than Full HD models, creating a crystal-clear image that is packed full of detail. TVs with 4K technology tend to come in bigger sizes, as this picture quality can be appreciated much more in larger displays.

3. How far away from your TV should you sit?

Ideally, you should sit around 1.5 times the TV screen size away for the best viewing experience. For a 50” TV you should therefore sit around 6.25’ away. Sitting closer to a TV could mean you do not experience as clearer picture quality.

4. Do you need Smart capability?

Smart TVs open you up to a world of on demand, streaming and much more, directly through your TV. Apps such as BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub help you to catch up on the week’s TV while Netflix and Amazon Prime provide a new source of entertainment. They don’t just provide TV services either, you can browse the web, keep in touch with social media and more. All you need is a strong internet connection and you are good to go. Not all Smart TVs offer the same apps and services, so it is important to check the apps you want are available before buying.

5. What is HDR?

HDR, or High Dynamic Range, technology produces a wider range of colours from the darkest blacks to the whitest whites, to deliver an extremely accurate, more natural and true-to-life picture quality. It refers to the contrast between dark and light colours within an image and helps to produce a delicate blend of colour and shifts in tone to unleash every detail. Images are more vibrant and offer a much more vivid experience.
