How to Choose a Samsung TV on Black Friday
There are a few things to consider when buying a Samsung TV, the first being to decide whether you want an HDTV, 4K TV or 8K TV. This comes down to resolution: Full HD, 4K Ultra HD or 8K Ultra HD. For most, a 4K TV will do the trick. Those after something a bit more high-end should consider a QLED 4K TV over an 8K TV.
So, why a QLED 4K TV over an 8K TV? It all comes down to return on investment. There simply isn’t enough 8K Ultra HD content out there to justify buying an 8K TV, and there won’t be for a while. 4K Ultra HD has only just entered the mainstream in the UK and it’ll be the industry standard for at least the next decade.
But what’s the difference between a standard LED 4K TV and a QLED 4K TV? Short for Quantum Light-Emitting Diode, QLED TVs main selling point is that they’re a lot brighter and more color-rich than their LED counterparts, making them the go-to for customers looking for a more cinema-like home-viewing experience.
As we said earlier, an LED 4K TV trick will be more than perfect for anyone looking for a new telly to come come and watch the latest episode of Coronation Street after work, while viewing a movie or two over the weekend, while QLED 4K TVs are better suited to those wanting to feel like they’re in the movie with the cast.
Other things to consider are local dimming zones (segments of the screen that shut off to increase the contrast ratio and make a better image), and refresh rate (how often the television shows a new image). Higher is better here in both aspects for more realistic viewing for watching movies and sports, and gaming.
