Choosing The TV That Fulfils All Your Dreams


The television can easily be counted as one of the most prominent inventions of the 20th Century. In the present day and age, it has become one of the most common ways people view the larger world beyond them, as well as being one of the best ways for people to escape the monotony of their world and spend some quality time with family and friends.

The new millennium brought the advent of digital television. Since 2010, with the invention of Smart television, Internet television has increased the availability of television programs and movies via Internet. With the rise of e-commerce websites over the last few years, it became easy for the people to buy TV online. All of this has flooded your options when choosing the right TV set for you. By the end of 2013, 79% of the world's households owned a television set. Presently, with all the leading trends and innovations in technology, we have a countless array of features available in televisions to choose from. So just how does one choose the right TV for themselves?

1. Set Your Budget.


Before you begin your search for the TV of your dreams the most integral step is to sit down and decide on a budget. With the increasing number of brands and schemes available online chances are that your TV shopping budget should not exceed your expectations. Many websites give you the option to compare television prices.

2. Is Bigger Supposed To Be Better?
Irrespective of whether you're looking for a basic or high-performance TV, the most relevant factor in your decision will most likely be screen size. You will have to consider the environment that your TV will be placed in. Will it be your bedroom or your living room, how big the room is and how many members of the family watch TV together. Then pick the largest screen size that will fit comfortably into that space — and your budget. The sweet spot today, considering price, performance and the typical living room, is between 32 and 50 inches.

3. The Correct Resolution For You.


Resolution describes the sharpness of the TV picture, usually in terms of horizontal lines of pixels. They’re not a deciding point in your decision but should be considered nonetheless. Like a bargain, HD set may support only 720p, which means the set displays 720 lines scanned progressively (or in a single pass). Other HDTVs support the 1080p HD format, also called Full HD, which has 1,080 lines of resolution. But at this stage, we can say 1080p sets are a thing of the past as well. That’s because almost every TV manufacturer is rapidly shifting from HDTVs to Ultra HD sets (also called 4K). These 4K models have four times the number of pixels as current HDTV screens. We’re talking 2,160 horizontal lines, or 3840 x 2160 pixels. If you wish to get a TV set that is future proof go for an Ultra HD.

4. Is Your TV Set A Smart TV? 


Almost all medium and upper end TVs nowadays come with the Smart TV feature inbuilt. Unless you have a need for this or if you are looking for low end TV you can always turn to external devices like Amazon Firestick or Google Chromecast. Since you can connect an inexpensive HDMI stick or box to make any TV "Smart" -- in the sense that you get access to Netflix, Amazon Instant, and the rest -- the "apps" on TVs are often redundant. Which makes this decision  completely a personal choice and not a necessity.

5. Connectivity Across Devices


Almost each and every TV set come with inbuilt ports to suffice all your needs. Still this is one feature that warrants a thorough analysis. Your TV should be able to support at the very least the basic connectivity options like HDMI and USB. These options have become a necessity with the current trend of sharing and viewing media across various platforms.
