Prepare for Prime Day by making the right choice of TV
Buying a television is not something to be taken lightly. On the one hand, its base price can represent a certain budget, so it is better not to leave on a whim! On the other hand, the device will be enthroned in your living room, so depending on the size of the latter, it is important to choose the right dimensions. If you dream of a home cinema, in a studio, the experience will not be the most pleasant! Finally in the jungle of TV products, it is important to have some keys to fully understand the technical aspects of the devices. The price of a TV will depend on several factors that are important to recognize before deciding on a specific model. Discover all the Amazon Prime Day offers here Set the right screen size
If there’s one thing you don’t have control over when buying a TV, it’s where you plan to place it, usually in your living room. It is therefore the size of this living room that will naturally apply a first filter in your criteria: the size of the screen.
Indeed, to make the most of a television, there is a certain setback distance to be taken into account between the device and your sofa. This decline varies depending on the definition offered by the screen. And the math is pretty straightforward. There are three types of definitions:
- HD television: for a 1366 x 768 image .
- Full HD television: for an image in 1920 x 1080 pixels.
- Television : for an image in 3840 x 2160 pixels
For each of these definitions, the recommended distance between the TV and the sofa is calculated using a multiplier of the diagonal of the screen. If there is no precise figure, we can generally summarize the process in this way.
- HD television: screen diagonal x 4
- Full HD television: screen diagonal x 2.5
- Ultra HD television: screen diagonal x 1.5
Note that the diagonal of the screen is generally expressed in inches. It will be necessary to convert to centimeters. Let us take as an example a Full HD television of 40 inches (40 “) in metric, this gives a diagonal of 101.6 cm. To calculate the backward distance we therefore apply the multiplier 2.5. Between the television and the sofa, it will therefore take about 254 cm or 2.54 m (well, we are not at the ready!).
Flat or curved screen
Among the Prime Day offers there will be models toor curved. How to choose ? The curved screen provides better immersion and helps reduce fatigue. In fact, with the curve, the images on the edges of the screen are closer to the .
Note, however, that this will largely depend on your uses and the viewing angle you want to favor. Television is not always watched while being comfortably seated in an armchair directly in front of it. It may happen that you are positioned more to the right or to the left performing a parallel activity (cooking, cleaning) and that you do not want to systematically turn the curved screen well in front of you.
Take advantage of Prime Day to switch to a 4K TV
As we saw above, there are different screen definitions for televisions and this is one of the important things to consider. While a few years ago, brands communicated on their Full HD devices, today many televisions offer a 4K image. And that’s probably what the buyer should be heading towards in 2020.
It should be noted in passing that with regard to television, the exact term is rather(3840 x 2160 pixels). 4K displays more precisely a definition of 4096 x 2160 pixels.
TF1, Telefoot, France TV Sport, or even Ultra Nature and Europsport offer content in 4K. This is also the case with, Canal + Series, Prime Video or Disney +. You will also find 4K and if you have a latest generation game console, you will enjoy an ultra high definition display.
Some much more expensive TVs display a definition of 8K. However, there is only a handful of content available right now.
What screen technology?
Another important point: the technology of the panel. So should we opt for a televisionLED, OLED ou ? What are the differences ?
While the standard screenhas a backlight, in , each pixel emits its own when it is crossed by a . This results in much more contrasting images. Since every pixel is active, the OLED screen also returns absolute black. the principle is simple: to make black, the pixel is quite simply off.
For its part, QLED technology – or Quantum LED – was designed by Samsung. The Korean manufacturer markets it to its competitors. The QLED uses the classic backlighting of an LED LCD panel with a Quantum-Dot filter allowing to extend thecolorimetric. A QLED television can also obtain a rate of very high.
Finally, do not neglect the connection available on the TV. There are usually ports, you might as well make sure there is enough. Maybe you are juggling a Chromecast, a Fire TV or a box TV for example.
The usb ports allow you to connect storage media, for example if your films are on aexternal. These ports will also provide power to certain dongles HDMI ou des box Android.
In addition, the presence of an Ethernet port is also a good thing, especially for a connected TV.
