Therefore, a high-definition TV

it is worth The decision between Full HD (1,980 x 10.80 pixels) and 4K TVs (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) was long a question of price, because high-definition television cost significantly more money. The prices have evened out in the meantime, however, since all manufacturers have switched to 4K. Occasionally one finds even Full HD TVs on the market, but this is most of the remaining stocks of old Display-productions.

Even if you cannot receive 4K content, because, for example, the Internet connection is too slow or the TV channels do not provide a so high image material, it is worth 4K: The Displays derive from more modern production facilities, and usually provide a much more dynamic, contrast-rich picture than the Full HD Panels. In addition, the new Displays offer a number of image enhancement techniques, even low resolution movie sprucing up the material. A reason for a new purchase, still after Full HD TVs around, there is no more.

note: in fact, 4K TVs to UHD TV. The difference is the number of pixels. Real 4K is 4096 × 2160 pixels, UHD 3840 x 2160 pixels. This is mainly due to the aspect ratio 17:9 is 16:9. Despite the slightly lower resolution, has established itself but also in the case of UHD, the term 4K.

view Outdated rule: The seat pitch must have had votes

As the TV has a resolution of Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels), was the seat distance to the appropriate TV size is crucial. Because the closer you sat to the TV, the more you could count every Pixel individually. In the case of a 65 inch big screen TV the Seating distance should be more than two meters, to be able to make the image even more to enjoy. These times are over, because the manufacturers rely almost exclusively on high-resolution 4K Displays.In the case of a 4K TV to the Seating distance is almost doesn’t matter, because even from a distance of approximately one and a half meters, the image works even with a huge 65-inch TV sharp. The old rule of thumb that must fit the TV to the Seating distance, therefore, is not practically valid – only the personal taste or the existing counts at the place of installation.

will display sizes in the Overview

Even if the Seating distance is no or hardly plays a role in the inch size, nevertheless, decisive – finally, the TV must fit in your own four walls. As each TV uses a different TV stand and the frame varies minimally, although no exact information, but on the basis of the inch size can be based values of at least a few rough guidelines. In the following Overview you will see the usual inch sizes in inches converted. Since by default the size is given as the screen size, we expect also the approximate height and width of a standard screen.

32 inches = 81.28 cm = 39.8 x 70.0 cm (height x width)

40 inches = 101,60 cm = 49,8 x 88,6 cm (height x width)

43 inches = 109,22 cm = 53.5 x 95.2 cm (height x width)

49 inch = 124,46 cm = 61 x 108.5 K (height x width)

50 inch = 127,00 cm = 62,3 x 110.7 cm (height x width)

55 inch = 139,70 cm = 68.5 x 121,8 cm (height x width)

60 inches = 152,40 cm = 74,7 x 132,8 cm (height x width)

65 inches = 165,10 cm = 80,9 x 143,9 cm (height x width)

70 inch = 177,80 cm = 87,2 x 155 cm (height x width)

caution the keyword SmartTV

"Smart TV" is a well taken selling point of the manufacturer. The Problem here is that There is no Standard that describes what features should be included in a SmartTV. Some manufacturers sell also TVs, which have only a Wi-Fi connection as SmartTV. Others are collaborations with providers like Netflix or Amazon close, to be able to have their services integrate, but otherwise, no Apps, such as, for example, the media libraries of the public broadcaster. Who buys a smart TV, don’t know, therefore, in doubt as to what the TV can really.

Display the differences at a Glance

In the case of the display technology currently, there are three tags, which provide in part for uncertainties in the customer: OLED, LCD, and QLED. CHIP shows in the following Summary the significant differences.

OLED: Displays with this technology do not require a backlight because the pixels themselves illuminate. The advantage of this is that higher contrasts and a rich black can be achieved – the image is still plastic. Theoretically, OLEDs have a slightly lower power consumption. However, there are also drawbacks: OLEDs can "burn". That is, if over a period of several hours, the same image is displayed, it can remain permanently visible. Especially in the case of OLED-TVs of the first Generation of this effect occurred more often. In addition, OLED Displays are much more expensive than the LCD competition.

LCD: This technique is used in most of the available TVs – from cheap to luxury class. High-quality LCD TVs (see QLED) to the OLED models in terms of image quality, but barely. Serious differences there may be, however, particularly in the case of cheap TVs. The images look so dynamic and rich in contrast and the black level is more like a deep shade of gray. This is partly due to the fact that the image needs to be illuminated from the rear, and not every Pixel is illuminated. It is also another very common Problem: the "Backlight Bleeding". What is meant is an uneven illumination of the display. This flaw occurs more in cheap TVs, to exclude 100 percent you can see the Backlight Bleeding on LCDs but never.

QLED: Is a term that Samsung has shaped and active drives. In principle, it is a modified LCD that promises better color reproduction and higher brightness. QLED comes to the picture quality of an OLED display is very close – but it also costs more than a Standard LCD TV. More QLEDs learn in a practical tip on
