Size of the screen

The most common screen sizes in the market include; 24, 28, 32, 42, 48, 55, 65, and 72 inches. Most manufacturers produce TVs with a screen size that ranges from 24 to 75 inches. In determining the size to opt for, you should consider the space available and your budget.

Screen resolution

Screen resolution refers to the number of pixels that are contained in the picture on display. If the image contains more pixels, it will appear sharper, and the details will be easily identifiable. Standard TVs have full HD resolution, and the images have an average level of sharpness.

But manufacturers have now introduced Ultra HD, also referred to as 4K. The 4K TVs enable the display of images in a sharper version, and you can stream your favorite movie from Netflix. Modern TVs such as the SCEPTRE TV display their images with good contrast and sharpness using the 4K resolution.

Refresh rate

The refresh rate of a TV is expressed in Hertz (HZ) and refers to the number of times in the second refreshment of an image that occurs on the TV screen. The standard refresh rate of a conventional TV is 60 HZ per second. If you want a better experience, you should opt for a TV with a refresh rate of either 120HZ or 240 HZ, as the images will be sharper.

TV type

They are two types of TV types available in the market. You can either opt for an LCD or OLED TV. The LCD TV sets are thin, and they have a beautiful display of images.

The images produced on the screen are sharp and are very conducive to a dimly lit environment. Also, the TVs are energy efficient, aesthetically appealing, and light-weight.

The OLED (Organic Light-emitting Diode) contains organic compounds that emit light on the TV after passing of an electric current.

OLED TVs are brighter than LCD TV. The energy consumption of these TVs is much lower as they don’t use backlighting.
