So, what is the craze about the latest LED TVs and what should you know before you spend your money on one?

So, what are LED TVs?

LED TV sets had light-emitting diodes behind the display and arranged in a grid of zones that can be individually lit or darkened. This technology makes the back-lighting more precise, and pictures appear more detailed regarding contrast. Previously, this arrangement was found only on Ultra HD television sets; this feature is becoming increasingly common on modestly priced sets. These days, for the latest LED TVs, prices tend to start at $200 for 32-inch sets, which are ideal for the bedrooms, while you can buy a 50- or 55-incher for below $500.

More or less most big-screen televisions, whether it’s an OLED, LED, 4K or Smart TV, all offer almost similar viewing technology, and customers won’t find the little differences in most cases. So, if you’re in a hurry and here are some important tips to look out for if to choose the best LED TV or any other flat-screen television for your home.

  • Don’t buy a TV that comes with a resolution of less than 1080p.
  • Avoid buying TVs that has a 720p resolution.
  • Always purchase a TV with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
  • Consider buying a 4K Ultra HD TV if you want your TV if you don’t want to upgrade your TV five years from now.
  • Though OLED TVs are more expensive than a typical LED, pictures look much better and offer more detail.
  • If money is not an issue, look for the state-of-the-art HDR-compatible TV sets, which offers more realistic colors, than any other OLED, LED or LCD TV.
  • Always trust your eyes for contrast ratio specifications as manufacturers tend to exaggerate the numbers.
  • Buy a TV that has at least 4 HDMI ports. If you want a 4K TV, choose the one that comes with HDCP compatibility.

  • Retailers often tell buyers that most of the TVs are “Smart TVs.”  Well, don’t take it an accurate statement as it’s a marketing gimmick.
