If you are in the market for a brand new television, 2015 looks set to be the best year to splash the cash to upgrade. With notable sets coming out from the top manufacturers, as well as a whole
host of new-fangled technology packed into the thinnest screens ever, let’s take a look at some of the most popular televisions available right now, as well as those special purchases that have the
wow factor you may have been dreaming of.
In this TV buying guide 2015, you will discover a range of televisions that offer the viewer the very best image quality, as well as a range of added extras that will boost your viewing pleasure into
overdrive. From 3D televisions, Ultra HD sets, as well as curved screens, only the very best will make this TV buyers guide, to save you time and effort hunting for the best of the best.
There are a number of features to look out for when purchasing a new set, and although some features may appeal more to some rather than others, certain functions will be universally appealing. If
it is a 3D television you are after, then by all means go for it, but contrast ratios, up-scaling and the quality and type of 3D glasses will be of importance.
Know the Size of your Room
The very first thing to think about when shopping for a new television is how big your room is and how that can have an impact on your viewing pleasure. Many people buy too big a television for
their room and end up with an entertainment room dominated by a large screen. Know that there is an optimum viewing distance when watching a screen, which may mean that having an Ultra HD television
may be a little overboard for your tiny city pad.
The majority of new flat screen televisions are perfect for wall mounting, but not all televisions come with a dedicated
wall mount. Ensure that your television has built-in brackets to be used on a wall, which will make the whole process easier. Why not get a professional to take care of the wall and you can
enjoy your films and television shows from a whole different angle.
Look for High Refresh Rates and Contrast Ratios
In the past, many televisions suffered from low refresh rates that made the pictures on screen appear to be fuzzy when watching fast moving content, such as sport. A high refresh rate will
minimise this annoying side-effect of television, and will be noticeable when watching sport or playing video games.
Having a high contrast ratio helps make your television screen burst into life, with vivid colours and black and white really standing out. LED televisions make the best of their localised dimming
feature to give the viewer the best results
Choose a Screen that Uses the Latest Technology
Plasmas, LCD and LED: The range of different technologies used in creating screens has evolved into a selection of tech that can have a big impact on the quality of the images. Plasma screens use
a gas to show images and have a great benefit in giving high contrast ratios and smooth image transitioning.
LCD screens are a proven technology to display crisp and clear images on a very thin panel that use less energy than plasma, and do not suffer from screen burn unlike the plasma screens. LED
screens however are the latest technology that mixes the best of both worlds. LED screens use less energy than plasma or LCD displays, as well as having high contrast ratios and pixels so compact
that they are hardly visible.
Consider your Budget Wisely
It is easy to get carried away when buying a television and opt for the largest screen. But this isn’t a necessity when dealing with image quality and the accessories you may be able to get
bundled with a new set. Consider the smaller televisions that use newer technology, such as LED screens that give you the best image quality, a longer life and less power consumption.
Added to these benefits of a smaller television with better image quality, you may be able to get a free bundled speaker system, whether it be a simple two speaker set-up or a full surround sound
system. Adding value to your purchase will go a long way in enjoying your television and saving you the purchase of extra kit.Ensure that your television has multiple HDMI input and outputs to ensure
you can connect your games consoles, Blu-Ray players and other multimedia playback devices to your set. Choose a set that comes under your budget and you can spend the left over cash on your
favourite games and films, meaning you can start enjoying your new television straight out of the box.
