In the last 5-6 years, buying a TV has progressively become a hard task. No longer is it as simple as walking into a store, picking which size you want and buying it. If you want to buy a TV these days, there are a few questions you have to ask yourself:
- What size do I need?
- What connections does the TV need to have?
- Will it work with my current aerial?
- What functions does it have?
- Is it internet enabled?
The list goes on…
And don’t think you can just walk into a store and the sales rep will guide you to your perfect TV, oh no, they’ll just send you to the most expensive TV, hi-fi and cables and then claim it’s all made for you. It’s important to know what you’re looking for in a TV. This article isn’t here to tell you what TV to buy or what to look out for, it’s here to tell you why it’s worth going through the hassle to buy a HD TV, why it’s worth going from store to store comparing prices and functionality. High Definition television is incredible, so here are 3 reasons why you should buy a HD TV.
Picture and Sound
It’s obvious that this was going to be my first point. High definition television is clearly all about the quality of the picture and the audio. Some HD TV’s are capable of 1080p, which is the best possible picture money can buy. 1080p is a resolution of 1920 casino online x 1080p, which is outstanding compared to the 480p a standard TV produces (note: not all HD TV’s are capable of 1080p). HD produces a much crisper image and the large resolution means that this image will look brilliant on a TV as small as 17” or as big as 52”.
The sound quality is fantastic too as HD cables are capable of transmitting up to 7.1 surround sound. This means that with the right setup, you could have a real cinema experience right in your living room.
In the last 2 years, HD TV’s have started offering more than just showing you high quality television; they are offering internet enabled applications, media centres and much more. TV’s such as the Samsung smart series have a whole range of fancy things that they can do, you can browse the internet like you would on a laptop. This is great if you want to check the weather or just watch YouTube, and if you spend a little bit extra you can get a TV which has a camera that follows your hand movements so you can browse the web with your hand!
Internet enabled applications such as Netflix broaden your choice of movies and TV shows. Browse through a massive library and once you’ve picked what you want to watch your TV will play it for you (Netflix subscription required). If you have a TV with a USB port, you can just plug in a USB and display your photos, videos or just play some music. High end TV’s offer USB recording which is brilliant, just record a show onto your USB stick and you can watch it on your laptop later.
HD TV’s open up a whole new world of interactive media, so it’s a great reason to purchase one.
With all the amazing features that HD TV’s are capable of, you’d assume that they are massive. But in actually fact, they’re not. Many HD TV’s are ultra-slim and weigh next to nothing, it’s hard to work out how they make these things to light and thin so I’m not going to go into it. Below are two pictures of TV’s with the same size screen, can you guess which one is the HD TV?
Not hard is it? It’s clear that the flat screen TV on the right is the HD TV, it just looks incredible and can do so much more than its predecessor. Most HD TV’s are extremely energy sufficient too which means you’ll be saving money in the long run.
So there you have it, 3 reasons as to why you should go out and purchase a new HD TV. Remember to read up about different TV’s to learn which one suits you best, it’s important to take your time when deciding what you should buy.
