Every important thing you need to know before buying a television

After passing high school, my parents bought me a PS5. Since I had a 32-inch TV I was not satisfied playing games that support the best graphics on that television.

The things I’ve mentioned above are very important for you to know before buying your TV. I’m insisting it these many times only because of your own good. I just don’t want you to regret the TV after buying it!


Types of television



Organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TVs are the best TVs you get right now! These televisions produce the best outcome that you can get the utmost. They contain organic semiconductor material to display the video content, so they are named OLED.

In OLED televisions, the organic material is placed between the conducting elements which produce bright amount of light and darker blacks than other types of televisions. Due to this reason the picture you are viewing have the best texture and looks sharper than other TVs.

So that the backlight set up is not needed for the OLED TVs. They are also built thinner and weigh lighter in the coming years since OLED TV doesn’t require any type of filter. 

In normal televisions, the viewing angle is mostly limited to 54 degrees, but in OLED TVs the viewing angle is extended up to 84 degrees.

They also consume less power compared to the other types of televisions, they usually consume 35% – 40% lesser power compared to the LCD TVs.

There are some major disadvantages of OLED TVs, they usually suffer from the burn-in issue which is caused by pausing a video for a longer duration. As you pause the video for a longer duration the image will be retained permanently by the OLED screen.

This may result in a short span of life for OLED TVs. And if you use OLED TVs for a long period, then the images that you are viewing will be slightly faded. They are also suffered from blurred motion effect.

This results in replacing the television which will cost you even more in the future.


  1. They produce the best image quality than any other television. They also have better contrast ratio than other television.
  2. They are slim and stylish, they usually blend with the background.


  1. They are very expensive, they usually cost about 900$ – 10,000$.
  2. They have a short span of life which leads to replacement of the television.


Light-emitting diodes (LED) TVs work on the principle of electroluminescence. They are basically an LCD TV that is modified by placing LEDs instead of CCFLs. CCFLs are used in LCD TVs, due to this reason they cost more than an LCD television.

The LED TV looks thinner and slim, they are more effective than a fluorescent lighting setup. To say, these are the most popular type of television which is widely being used by many people around the globe.

They also produce a much better outcome but it is no match to the OLED television. They are usually made for people who watch television in the day time compared to the night.


  1. They use the LED lights which gives a better outcome compared to the LCD TVs.
  2. It is more efficient than fluorescent lighting.


  1. They cost more than LCD TVs just because of using the LED lights, and the other features are all same.
  2. They usually cost 200$ – $5,480.


Liquid crystal display (LCD) TVs are one of the popular TVs which are used, they were well used in the early 20s then they partially lowered after the introduction of LED and OLED televisions.

LCD TVs use a state of matter called liquid crystals, when you touch the screen you can see the place where your finger has touched for a short duration while moving your finger towards any direction while touching you can see the display going inwards.

These displays accurately show the perfect image that you wish to see. They still have some sharpness issues still it delivers a good image. This display can easily be broken and it costs a new LCD TV to repair its screen. So better be careful with the display if you tend to buy it.

They are flat and weigh less, they usually can offer only up to 1080p. They usually lose their sharpness and appear softer while playing slow-motion videos.


  1. They offer up to 240 Hz refresh rate.
  2. They cost cheaper than most TVs. They usually cost $150 – $1,000.


  1. They are flat and look like typical TVs which are used in the old times.
  2. Their display is so sensible that even if you slightly damage it, it causes you to replace the display which will cost the price of another LCD TV. 


Quantum light-emitting diode (QLED) TVs are the improved versions of the LED TVs. They improve the color quality and produce a bright image while displaying. 


They use the quantum dot technology to give the output. They usually last longer and have a larger screen size, they also not burn-in prone. 


They are usually priced between the LCD TVs and OLED TVs.




  1. They produce better output compared to the LED TVs.
  2. They are not burn-in prone and last longer.




  1. They are more expensive than a typical LED TV. 
  2. They cost around $480 – $7000.
