Buying the right TV online can be a tedious task. It requires a lot of research and decision-making before choosing the right one. Unlike smartphones, television sets are a long-term investment. Therefore, the first step is to decide your budget. After you have decided on the budget, you must consider your requirements. There are plenty of options available in the market to make you confused. Let us have a look at some of the most significant factors that you must think about while choosing your TV online.
The most important factor to consider while buying a tv online is the size of the screen. This is usually dependent on the number of family members watching the TV at once and space where you are going to place it. After you have decided on these two things, select the largest screen according to your budget that will fit perfectly into that space.
Another important thing while deciding the screen size is the distance between your TV and where you are sitting. Generally, you should sit at a distance, which is three times more than the height of the screen in the case of HD and 1.5 times the height of the screen for 4K Ultra HD. A 43-inch screen can be ideal for a medium-sized bedroom and for a living room, 55-inches to 65-inches is perfect.
The second most important factor while selecting a TV online is the display resolution. The higher the resolution, the greater is the number of pixels, resulting in sharper and well-defined pictures. Though 8K TVs are being introduced into the market, it is still rarely seen in Indian households. 8K TVs offer four times greater resolution than the 4K sets. However, it is better to stick to a 4K Ultra HD TV set. They offer a resolution of 3840 X 2160 pixels. The average price of a 4K TV is around INR 50,000. With the increasing popularity of OTT platforms, a 4K TV can be ideal for modern-day uses.
If you are not willing to spend such a large amount right now, you can also go for a full HD (1920 X 1080 pixels) TV set. They are still the most common TV sets in India. You may not even notice the differences in the picture quality between an HD and an Ultra HD set unless you pay extra attention to the details. In 4K sets, you will find that the smaller objects are more defined, sharper and richer.
While choosing a TV online, you will find various display types such as LCD/LED and OLED sets. You will mostly find LCD LED sets as they are the most common televisions in the market. In an LCD LED TV, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are used to illuminate the LCD screen.
Full-array LED sets are also available in which the LEDs are placed directly behind the screen. This results in lighting up specific portions while darkening the other parts, for better mixing of dark and light areas on the screen. This feature is known as active dimming or local dimming. It offers a better and more detailed picture quality. There is one more LED technology, called quantum dots, which is becoming more and more popular. An extra layer of nanocrystal dots is added to the screen that improves the color and brightness of the images. The average price of a 24 inch led tv is around INR 10,000 to INR 12,000.
Now, there is another display type, known as OLED. This display type is usually found in 4K and 8K sets and is quite expensive. Organic LEDs are used behind the screen for better image quality.
Refresh rate, generally represented by Hertz or Hz, is the number of times an image is refreshed on the screen in one second. Usually, the refresh rate is 60 Hz. However, 120 Hz TVs are also coming to the market. Though a 60 Hz refresh rate is enough for good picture quality, 120 Hz can improve the quality during action sequences. If you want to play high-resolution action video games on your TV, then you can go for a 120 Hz TV set.
While buying a TV online, this is one factor that escapes our attention. Always check the number of connectivity options before buying a TV set. Nowadays, we connect a lot of devices to our TV such as soundbar, console, streaming stick and therefore, a decent number of HDMI ports are necessary. Try to buy a TV with HDMI 2.1 format, which offers improved gameplay, zero screen tearing, and variable refresh rate support. Apart from the HDMI ports, you will also require USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet ports.
Once you have selected the right TV for your home, you can go to the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store, an online electronics shopping store, where you can use your Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card to buy your preferred TV set. With more than 1 million+ products, you will get plenty of options to choose from. You will also find various discounts and offers on your product.
