These black and white screens were only available to the most privileged in the society, unlike now where you’re likely to see a TV in every homes.

Aside the price of a TV, there are a lot of other things you should consider before purchasing a television set. Surprisingly, TV sellers are likely not to tell you, they’d prefer just collecting your money for whatever TV its worth – they just want to make sales without considering if it’s the TV you really need or not. To solve this, we.ve put a list of things to consider before purchasing a TV set.
Things to watch out for Before Buying a TV
- Screen Size — a lot of opinions tend to imply that “the bigger the screen, the better”, but this is actually false. Your desired screen size should be determined by the space you intend on mounting the TV. This will ensure you don’t strain your neck or eye while watching the TV.
- Screen Quality — with the advancement of technology, this factor has almost entirely taken care of itself. Entry level TV screens in the market today is based on the LED technology; which is quite good for regular, and even sometimes advanced use. For best screen qualities where you are guaranteed 8K resolution, you can go for screens with the OLED and QLED technology; though this is not really necessary if you are not a demander for high graphics. That being said, you shouldn’t look the way of LCD or plasma displays, they have simply become obsolete, and can’t compete with current trends.
- Miscellaneous Features — this has to do with other attached features like ports, casing, user interface, etc. TV sets comes with ports like HDMI, USB, Card Reader, Ethernet, etc. you have to choose one that has the number of ports you desire. While the casing of some TV sets is prone to dust accumulation even if you clean it daily, some are not, also, some are built with full metal casing; though looks rugged, this may cause overheating on continuous usage. The issue with user interface is determined by each brand, so you should choose based on review from confirmed users. However, most TVs these days are built smart, so you shouldn’t have a problem picking a from any brand.
