Choosing a new TV is a challenge for most users. For this reason, many resort to the advice of a friend or acquaintance, but few are the ones who make the big mistake of trusting a store consultant.
The store will flood you with information and offer you ‘feature-filled' models that you will never need or use anymore. To make sure you don't regret the choice you made later, check out PC Mag's tips to know which features are important and which aren't.
The media offers us a list of 5 important features your new TV should have. Make sure you also learn how to connect an Android device to a TV. And if you click here you will learn what are the main problems of today's OLED TVs.
720p TVs are still available today, but you should only resort to such models if you need a cheap TV, such as a nursery, kitchen or guest room. The best choice today comes down to choosing a 1080p resolution model. True, the higher resolution – 4K UltraHD will replace 1080p, but it will take several more years.
TV prices are falling steadily and today most users can afford even the 72-inch model, but unfortunately the rooms are too small to enjoy. There is a direct link between the recommended screen size and the viewing distance. Ideally, you have a screen that is large enough to cover a certain field of view in front of you so that your eyesight does not load. A 40-degree viewing angle creates complete immersion in the picture and a true cinematic experience. But what does this mean?
To reach this 40 degree viewing angle, you will need to measure the distance from the sofa to where you plan to place your TV and multiply it by 0.84. For example, if this distance is 108 inches, you will need to buy a model with a 90-inch display.
However, there is also an opinion that the viewing angle should be 30 degrees. If you want to comply with this opinion, you will need to multiply the distance by 0.625. Keep in mind, however, that these are just guidelines that should be seen as recommendations, not laws. Always consider some additional factors that arise, such as the financial side of things. However, the resolution of the screen as well as the layout of your room also matter.

Most TVs have an entire armada of different ports. At least 2 or 3 HDMI ports, USB, VGA, Scart and audio outputs analog and digital are required. This will allow you to include both your future technology gadgets and older ones. However, the TV is the center of multimedia in the home and must be prepared for all devices.
Finally, many TVs already include Wi-Fi to connect to the network. That's good, but try choosing a model with an Ethernet port, so if you have a weak Wi-Fi connection you can save yourself a lot of headaches.
It varies from 60Hz, 120Hz, 240Hz, 480Hz to 600Hz and shows the number of times a still image is refreshed on the screen (for example, 120Hz = 120 times). LCD TVs are said to be foggy in dynamic scenes than plasma. However, in reality, most people do not notice blurred images. It is almost impossible to find a simple-eye difference between a 60Hz and 600Hz TV.
