    Top tips for choosing the best TV screen for you

    At first, the way you can buy a new TV may seem like the easiest thing in the world. You find a TV, you pay for it then you take it home, right?

    But things are not always that easy. There is a wide range of TVs, each offering its own unique combination as processing speed, algorithms, resolution, etc. This means that finding the right TV for you will take a lot of effort.

    Since the cost of buying a TV is quite high, your best wish when you decide to buy a TV is that you don't end up buying an unsuitable device. In this article, we have collected for you a set of tips that will help you choose the perfect and suitable TV.

    Screen Size

    We recommend that you measure the living room wall (or wherever you plan to place the TV) to make sure the screen dimensions fit where you want to put it. (The number of inches is the diagonal length of the TV screen, from the bottom corner to the top corner on the other side.)

    In the end, the screen size is determined by the size of the available models, as TV screen sizes are constantly increasing year after year. In general, according to aitnews tech website, the most common TV screen sizes at the moment are : 32 inch TV screen, 40 inch TV screen, 50 inch TV screen, and 55 inch TV screen. You may find screens of other sizes but they are very rare.

    The distance you sit from the TV is also important. We recommend making sure your screen size is approximate twice the distance between the device and your seat.

    Screen Resolution

    Screen resolutions vary from one screen to another, including what is described as “HD Ready”, which is the lowest level of display resolution, known as 720 pixels. As for “FULL HD”, the display resolution is high definition (1920 x 1080) and gives the best picture and viewing, and it is known as 1080 pixels. It is preferable when buying a new screen to be FULL HD, which bears the 1080p logo.

    Screen Type

    Screens vary with their technology. LED screens are characterized by having more outputs and large sizes of them that support Wi-Fi and 3D, and are also characterized by being less thick and weight, with their support for the FULL HD feature.

    In contrast, LCD screens have fewer outputs, and only a few have 3D technology available. The screen supports FULL HD, but with lower quality than LED screens.

    As for plasma screens, they are characterized by the ability to view the screen from all angles, and their cost is lower compared to other types, but they lack other additional features.

    Contrast Ratio

    The contrast ratio describes the screen's ability to produce better and clearer color tones and images, the higher the contrast, the higher the screen's ability to do so.

    The contrast ratio is the difference between maximum white and maximum black, and is usually expressed in a ratio such as (1:1000000), meaning the difference is 1000000, the higher this number, the better.

    Connectors and Ports

    Most TVs now have built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet ports so that you can connect them to the Internet. However, not all TVs also allow you to use network connections to access multimedia stored on other devices on your network. So if this is a feature you want, make sure the TV you're buying supports it. Also note that some TVs also support Bluetooth connectivity with external devices.

    The ability to access content on other smart devices

    In general, if you have a number of personal smart devices in your home, TVs that can access content on other devices in your home - via Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi, are worth looking into.

    Brightness

    Screens brightness these days range from 500-1000 nits, which is enough to display images efficiently in normal room lighting.

    Notice! A higher amount of brightness does not necessarily mean a better picture, but rather a balance between brightness and contrast to get a good picture.

    Viewing Angles

    To check image quality with different viewing angles, pause an image on-screen that has a perfectly bright and colored element on a dark background, and start walking around it from the opposite side, if you notice a noticeable gray color on parts of the image, loss of color vibrancy, or the appearance of clouds and streaks, keep away of it.
