Cyber Monday TV buying advice: what to look for
If you're in the market for a new TV set, the good news is there's plenty of choices out there; the bad news is, picking out the differences between models and ranges can be a little overwhelming to the untrained eye. These are the key features to look for in a new television and should help you pick out the best deals from the duds.
What size TV do I need? TVs are usually categorised (as well as priced) by the size of the display first and foremost, measured diagonally from corner to corner, so before you go shopping grab a tape measure and work out how much living room space you want to give over to your new set (and think about how far away you're going to sit).
Aside from the obvious - a bigger TV gives you a bigger picture - you need somewhere in the region of a 55-inch set or higher to really appreciate the extra resolution in a 4K picture (of which more below). Aside from that, it's really up to your personal tastes and the size of your budget as to how big a television you want.
Look for the TV set depth, the overall weight, and whether it can be wall-mounted to work out where you can put your shiny new box, or if it will fit in the space you've already got.
For some extra immersion, look for curved sets, though again this is down to personal preference and the size of your room.
TV terminology explained
- Full HD - these displays can handle 1080p video, which is really the minimum resolution you should be looking for from a new high-definition TV today.
- UHD or 4K - the cutting edge in display technology is often referred to as ultra-high-definition or 4K, and it offers a pixel-count roughly four times as high as 1080p.
- HDR - a new TV technology that affects your display's colour, contrast, and brightness. High dynamic range sets can produce dramatically more vivid and bright images while offering much more detail in dark shots.
- Ultra HD Premium - televisions marked with the badge below can display images at 4K resolutions or higher, contain HDR technology, and meet certain standards for colour reproduction, too. The complete package.
What is 4K, and do you need it?
In consumer TV tech, 4K (sometimes called Ultra High Definition, UHD or 4K UHD) is the next step up from high definition - 3840 x 2160 pixels instead of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Like any new tech, you don't necessarily need it but if you have the budget and want to be set for the future then it's definitely worth investing in. At the rate new TVs are made, you may even find it hard to buy a TV that isn't 4K-enabled somehow. TV channels have started experimenting with 4K, some Netflix shows now come in the format, and in a few years everything will be in glorious 4K (though it will still display fine on older sets).
For the very best in terms of 4K quality and colour, look for an industry standard label called Ultra HD Premium. Rather confusingly, Sony has gone its own way with a different term and spec called simply 4K HDR. Either of these labels means you're getting the best possible 4K picture that type of device can offer.
That brings us to HDR, or High Dynamic Range, something else that a lot of new sets are now coming with. Essentially it produces a better range of colour and contrast across the board and takes advantage of the extra pixels available with 4K. Again, it's worth stretching for a set with HDR if you want to get the best possible picture.
What else should you look for in a TV? Once you've chosen a 4K TV set (or a non-4K TV set, if that's all you really need) and picked a size, most of the work is done, but there are still a few other features worth looking out for.
Ports is a big one - make sure you have all the HDMI, USB and other connections you're going to need for the kit you already have (and want to get in the future). After you've taken satellite boxes, games consoles and Chromecasts into consideration, those ports can quickly fill up, so make sure you've got enough.
You will also notice OLED sets. These screens, pioneered by LG, are arguably the best-looking screens on the market. OLED screens (organic light-emitting diode) are likely to replace tradition LCD or LED screens in the coming years, as the picture quality is a huge step-up - but remain prohibitively expensive for most consumers. In short, a 4K OLED set could be the best TV you could buy but you'll be lucky to find one for less than £1500 this year.
