What features to look for when buying a LED TV 2014


In this post we will try to explain what features should compare to buy a LED TV. The LED TV has many technical specifications, some misleading.
Also this year 2014 arrive Ultra Definition TVs, 4K TV. We expect to see the prices but for now we do not recommend buying these televisions still exorbitant price. It is advisable to buy a 4K TV in 2014?

If you want to buy a LED TV should look for the following features in the specifications.
  • Refresh rate (Hz): CMR, MCI, PMR, Motion, ....
  • Inch: 32, 37, 40, 42, 46, 47, 55, 65 (* 39, 50, 75, 84)
  • Local Dimming
  • Resolution: HD or HDReady
  • Connectivity: HDMI / USB
  • Compatibility: *. MKV, Xvid, m2ts, ...
  • Tuner: DVB-T/C/S/T2
  • Design
  • 3D: Active or passive
  • SmartTV: free browser, flash, ...
  • Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi or Wi-fi Ready

Refresh Rate / Refresh Rate / HZ:
This specification is the most widely used to promote a LED TV. You have to be careful because the number of Hz that is not really the advertised "Refresh Rate". Each brand comes up with a name for the number of your TV Hz. Anyway the higher the number of Hertz better, but it is important to find the actual frequency to compare models. You can see more about Hz LED TV in differents Brands MCI CMR PMR.

Screen Size:
The screen size is no doubt, the bigger the better. It should be clear that the input LED TV may look big but soon you regret not having bought a larger one. We suggest giving up other features in exchange for getting a bigger LED TV.
As editors say:
If you can't include the LED TV in the furniture of your livingroom, you must pull the furniture away.

Image quality:
It is perhaps the most important factor in choosing a LED TV. Most buyers locate the image quality as the most important in choosing a LED TV.
It is also the most difficult to assess, we must remember that in a store room lighting is not at home, the LED TV are not equally calibrated, ... We can then consider to choose the best image LED TV?
LED TVs with local dimming, have better picture quality than the non-local dimming. It is perhaps the only technical specification that can be found along with Hz, to decide which LED TV has better image quality. The other factors that should be assessed are black levels, color saturation, screen glare, calibration, all important factors that are not in the technical features of the TV.

Display resolution:
It is advisable to buy a FullHD LED TV, especially after 40in size. Check out our post on the differences between HD or HD Ready.

Currently there is only one important connector for our LED TV, the HDMI. We advise you to think how many devices you want to connect to your LED TV and look at the number of HDMI inputs having the model.
Besides there is also HDMI inputs USB ports, disks must look that is compatible with which files can play? and if your TV has the ability to record via USB?. They reproduce files of USB LED TV?
Another extra is the connection regarding the Wi-Fi, we have to look at the specifications if they incorporate Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi Ready, which means it is compatible but you have to purchase it separately.

We should not have problem with the tuner but have some form of cable or satellite TV. In that case we should look to the DVB-T / DVB-C / DVB-S toTDT, cable and satellite respectively. The higher end models also include the DVB-T2.

Do not neglect this aspect because a large LED TV will decorate our living room for a few years. If we want to hang on the wall should seek the thinnest LED TV possible, and connections (HDMI, USB) side.

The Smart TV allows you to connect to the Internet using applications or browser. Technology is still rather poor, if you want to use your TV as a computer screen LED better connect a PC via HDMI. Anyway we should look at the features if they have free browser or flash support.

Like the 3D SmartTV LED TVs to be used as an extra. The main problem is not the technology, is the content. Most people who have a 3D LED TV never use it. Anyway we must look if 3D TV is active or passive, if you bring sunglasses, 2D-3D converter, ... Different 3D models from Samsung, LG, Sony, ...

There are other aspects that do not appear in the specifications as input lag for gamers, the viewing angle, power consumption, processor, DCR, ...
Compare prices can save a chunk, recommend some online stores with good prices
