Shopping Guide: How to Choose the Right TV for your Home
Are you looking to bring home the right TV for your home? If yes, then you should know that television is one of the most vital gadgets that people buy in India. But, being the commonest, customers still make mistakes and buy the wrong type and regret later.
Hence, it becomes vital to keep in mind some factors so that you are able to bring home the right TV. No matter whether you choose an LG TV, Lloyd TV and any other brand, following some tips beforehand will assist you in purchasing the best TV. Read on!
1) The screen size of your television
The first thing that you need to consider before buying a TV should be the display size of it. Why? It is because you may buy the wrong type for a home where you are installing it, and it may ruin your viewing experience. Hence, the screen size of your TV should depend on your room size. If you want to set a 43 inch size LED TV in your small living room, then it won’t be a fruitful experience. You should at least have a 4 feet viewing distance from your screen if you have a 32 inch screen. For a 55-65 inch screen, you should aim to have a minimum viewing distance of 9 feet.
2) Go for a Full HD TV instead of HD Ready
If you are able to stretch your budget a bit, then it may be possible to upgrade from an HD Ready resolution to Full HD. If you want to set your TV in a small room, then a Full HD TV should be your goal. HD Ready TVs are great for customers whose major priority is watching only set top box based content. On the other hand, if you are planning to stream content via Smart TV functionalities, then an HD TV is a must. It will help you play games and watch movie marathons without glitches.
3) Check out the connectivity options
If you are buying an LG TV and any other brand for purposes other than just watching set top box based content, then you should ensure to get more connectivity ports. These days, televisions come with 2 to 3 HDMI and USB ports so that you can easily connect a camcorder, Blu-ray player, gaming consoles and more. The higher the connectivity option, the better.
4) Give importance to the refresh rate
The refresh rate on your Lloyd TV and other brand mean how many times the picture on your TV display gets refreshed per second. It is measured in Hz. You should aim for at least 60 Hz – the higher, the better!
5) Smart TV option
These days, most of the leading TV manufacturing companies like LG, Lloyd and more come with Smart TV connectivity. It means that you can easily switch to the internet and access movies, streaming video platforms like Netflix, Hotstar and other leading apps. However, some Smart TV options are not actually smart as it means having its own ecosystem, Operating System and app store, which may not be liked by many.
6) What about the audio output?
You should know that the audio output of budget TVs are not good and hence; you may need to install a sound bar with your TV to enjoy the enriching sound. Even if you are investing in a large TV, it would be recommended to invest in a quality sound bar. If you don’t want to buy a sound bar, then at least invest in a decent 2.1 speaker system.
You should consider these options while buying a TV in India and elsewhere. This way, you would be able to bring home the best quality television, always!
