Television or TV has come a long way from being a big, ugly box containing a picture tube. Today, you can buy a huge television available in a slim form factor and boast of immersive visuals and smart features like Android OS, OTT apps, etc. Also if you are looking for a TV that won’t pinch your pocket, full HD TVs are your best bet as they offer a good balance between visual quality and value for money. If you’re looking to buy a full HD TV to add to your festive celebrations, here’s a complete list of the best picks in Chroma.
Things to consider while buying a full HD TV
● Display Type: The most important thing to consider while buying a TV is the display. Choose between LED, OLED and QLED depending on your budget. The LED panel is the most popular and cheapest option, while the other two are found in more expensive TVs.
● Screen Size: The size of the TV screen is also a factor to keep in mind. Depending on the TV’s distance from the seating arrangement and the number of family members watching simultaneously, it’s important to go for a size that provides an immersive experience.
● Connectivity Options: When buying a TV, keep in mind what connections you need. Whether you want to connect a gaming console, use a USB drive to play media, and more, choosing a television that has the necessary ports is crucial. A safe option is to have at least two HDMI ports, two USB ports, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connecting audio accessories.
● Sound: The sound system a TV provides can make or break your experience. Remember that the higher the sound system’s wattage, the louder the output. Choose one that delivers sound that fits the space in your home. Of course, it is equally important to provide rich output to the speakers so that there is no audio distortion and you also get dialogue clarity.
