How to choose the best TV...

Content Image

Not sure where to start?

Choosing the right TV is a big decision, and a big investment. So it’s a good idea to take some time to consider the following factors:

• What will you be using your TV for?
• What size screen do you need?
• What type of screen do you want?
• Have you thought about audio?
• Will your TV be wall mounted?

This will then help you decide which screen size and type will be best suited for your needs.

TV screen sizes

This depends on where your TV will be placed, what you're using it for and how many people will be watching it. The screen size is measured diagonally, from corner to corner. If your TV is going into a particular space, then the measurements of the whole TV will be listed in the product description.

TV screen types

Many models have different and multiple features, each being a benefit for different purposes. For example, HDR creates bold lifelike images for gaming, whereas QLED boosts a vibrant, colourful picture for amazing wildlife documentaries. Let us help bust through the jargon and find the best TV for you.

Standard screens

Most TVs now include full HD (high definition) and LED (light-emitting diode) technology as a standard. These models will enhance brightness, offer crisp picture quality and create more realistic images for TV, films or gaming.

What about 4K TVs?

4K screens are now becoming more popular as they incorporate both LED and HD. But with 8 million pixels, they’re 4 times greater than full HD – giving you even sharper colours, clarity and images.

Looking to upgrade?

Want more impact from your films or games? Look for ULED or NanoCell technology. Hisense have created a ULED TV which offers a brighter picture, meaning you can watch your favourite shows with crisp, clear picture clarity.

NanoCell technology incorporates both picture quality and design. LG have used NanoCell to boost more accurate, natural looking colours from every angle. Meaning you get a better picture no matter where you sit.

The ultimate viewing experience

TVs with OLED or QLED will also support HD, 4K and smart TV. Which means you’re getting the best viewing experience. But they also boost the sharpness and depth of colour – creating a more realistic picture.

 

What’s the difference between OLED and QLED?

OLED (organic light-emitted diode) doesn’t need the backlight of LED, as each pixel can produce its own light. QLED is similar but also uses ‘quantum dots’ across the screen, to dramatically improve the image from every angle.

Both will give you impactful contrasts of colour and superb detail, for a stunning picture.

Why do I need a soundbar?

A great TV deserves great audio. And if you don’t have the room for home theatre surround sound, a soundbar has it all rolled into one. The slim design neatly tucks under your TV, whilst the wide shape holds multiple speakers (or channels), boosting clear, crisp sound around your room.

Most new TVs will have the audio port you’ll need to hook up your soundbar. Alternatively, use the Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection to stream music from your phone or tablet, and use the soundbar as a stereo instead.

Still unsure? View our soundbar guide.

How to find the right TV stand

These are a popular choice – they’re easy to move, great for storing DVDs, consoles or cables, and there are multiple options to suit your style.

Before you purchase your stand, think about the height, as this will affect the height of your TV.  Consider the width too, does your TV have feet in the middle or at the sides? Your stand should be 3 inches wider than your TV, but not so big that your TV looks too small.

Which TV bracket do I need?

There are 4 types of brackets to help you securely mount your TV. Each of these will have a weight limit, so remember to check that your chosen bracket can support your TV’s weight. 

Flat-to-wall - These sit flush to your wall and don’t have an extending arm, so you won’t be able to adjust the viewing angle.

Tilting - With a small extendable arm that flexes horizontally. These don’t sit flush to the wall, but you can tilt your viewing angle depending on the glare, lighting or where you’re sat.

Tilt and swivel - These brackets move both horizontally and sideways to adjust your viewing angle. They’ll have a longer arm and some models include a base for extra safety and support.

Multi-positional - The most flexible TV bracket. They’re slightly larger to cover more space but these allow more movement to help you find the very best angle.

This port is for your audio connections. Mostly used for soundbars and speakers.

AV
Connects to devices, similarly to HDMI, but only in standard definition.

USB
Lets you connect your TV to your phone or tablet
