Screen size and how slim the bezel is aside, there’s some other key factors you need to take into consideration when buying a new TV. Do you want something that plays 3D content? Are you going to jump on the 4K TV bandwagon? Does it have the Smart TV services you’re after? Will it actually fit in the living room?
Once you’ve answered those questions, you have to weigh up which of the many TVs from Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic and Toshiba fit the bill. Is the Samsung Smart TV platform the best for accessing online content like Facebook and Netflix? Does Sony’s Triluminos colour system really offer a more vibrant place to watch Blu-ray movies?
All are important factors that could be the difference between paying £5,000 or £500 for a TV that truly fits. So if talk of LED, dynamic contrast ratios and refresh rates leave the mind boggled, we’ve done the hard work for you.
