When it comes to the television screen, we generally go by the rule of “bigger is better”. However, you have to be careful in this regard, first because the giant TV you buy may not fit in the living room furniture, and second because the viewing distance comes into play here, since if the screen is so big that forces you to move your neck to get from one edge to the other, you will end up with fatigue and even cervical problems.
For this reason, you must take into account where the television will be located and where you will sit to watch it, or rather at what distance. As a general rule, for a 55-inch TV you should sit at least 1.70 meters away, while for a 65-inch diagonal screen this distance is extended to 2 meters. If you want to go BIG (in capital letters), for a 75-inch screen Samsung recommends sitting at least 2.3 meters away, while for the gigantic 85-inches, this distance increases to 2.6 meters.
Resolution: Full HD, 4K, 8K… what is more worth it?
Today we do not stop seeing content advertised in 4K resolution and even in 8K resolution. Obviously, and we are not going to lie to you, a TV with 8K resolution looks better than a 4K one, and this in turn looks much better than a Full HD. However, you must also take into account some factors such as the fact that ultra-high resolution content is still somewhat scarce and that although it is true that the price of 4K televisions is already at a quite acceptable level, they are still quite more expensive than Full HD.
What we would recommend is that if the TV you intend to buy is 42 inches or less, you can perfectly opt for Full HD resolution and thus save a lot of money. However, for larger screens, the pixel size of Full HD TVs is already too noticeable, and therefore the recommendation is to take a step forward and go for a 4K TV or, if your budget allows it, even 8K. ; Keep in mind that although there is not much content now, the trend is that there will be in the near future, so you will already have a TV prepared for it.
LED, QLED, OLED… what type of matrix should you choose?
As a general rule, almost all modern televisions sold today use an LED matrix; however, other manufacturers such as Samsung have shown that there are other technologies that leave LED backlight technology far behind, such as QLED: a QLED TV is based on Quantum Dots, extremely thin semiconductor materials (size to nanoscale) that produce different colors of light depending on the size of the particles, something that allows a color precision that conventional televisions are not capable of emulating.
In addition, QLED televisions take advantage of many other features of these Quantum Dot arrays, such as high luminosity (the brightness of the screen), a very important factor in order to obtain higher quality content that, in marketing terms, is known as HDR.
If we put this QLED technology in perspective against OLED, which you will have heard widely by now, it must be said that in the end it all comes down to different principles of technology: while Quantum Dot uses inorganic materials, which does not deteriorate or “expire”, OLED uses organic materials that, in addition to having a lower durability, make them susceptible to image retention and Burn-in.
In short, if you are interested in having a great image quality on the TV you intend to buy, do not hesitate and go for a TV with QLED technology, because today it is the best you can find.
