The good news for anyone looking to upgrade that television set you’ve probably had for quite some time now is that prices have dropped considerably. After many manufacturers had people believing that 3D TVs would be the next big thing (they weren’t), some of you may be a little skittish about trying out the new next big thing which is 4K.
This hit back in 2013 and for all you early adopters, it’s been a true luxury where you find yourself going to the theater much less as the quality often surpasses those at your local multiplex.
Do you remember how it felt when you first saw HD? Well, it’s double that with a 4K television. You may have heard about 8K TVs on the horizon, but this article is about helping you with the new format that’s not just a flash in the pan trend. 4K is here to stay, and prices have dropped so you can get one for as low as $500. Netflix has gotten a really good supply of 4K content, so now is a great time to upgrade that television.
Some of you may be just looking for a high definition (HD) TV, so we’ve got you covered there too.
Samsung KS9500 Series
You can have an amazing picture quality, but if the sound isn’t as good, you’re going to notice. They use a technology called SUHD Quantum Dot color that gives up to a billion color combinations. After trying this one out for ourselves, we can confirm that it’s not marketing hyperbole either. This set is beautiful, and it doesn’t matter what you like watching. You’re going to see things in all their brilliance with the KS9500 series.
You don’t have to worry that you’ll need only 4K content to view on these TVs. They will upgrade whatever you’re watching to bring out the best it can be. With the SUHD, it is able to analyze the brightness of what you’re watching and remaster it for optimal viewing.
The curved screen is another exciting aspect of this, as it delivers a truly immersive experience making wherever you sit the best seat. Earlier curved TVs made it so you had to be sitting within five feet to fully enjoy the immersion, but Samsung has taken their state-of-the-art screen to a whole new level.
Remember when those quality TVs were over a hundred pounds and became the sole focus of whatever room they were in? Well even with a stand, this one is under 60 pounds and is thinner than most picture frames. You can also access the internet and any app you want on this. Older TVs would require you to buy a converter to have internet access so you could get Netflix, but it’s all just one flick of the remote switch away now.
LG OLED E6 Series
What this means is that there’s no light behind the picture so you’re getting the absolute best picture color quality money can buy.
The color contrast is incredible, and if you’re watching a movie that does a fade to black, you’ll wonder if your TV has been turned off as the blacks are that realistic. The LG OLED E6’s ‘picture on glass’ design makes this a true work of art. Where TVs used to be an eyesore, LG is turning them into pieces that blend beautifully with your living area. Its thin design makes it easy to either hang on the wall or on a stand.
Samsung JS8500 Series
The Samsung comes with a separate box for all your connections, so you don’t have that cable octopus look that’s nearly impossible to get through when you need to unplug or change something. You can put the box in an out of sight place, so there’s only one cable to lead to the TV for all those who hate clutter.
LG 55LH5750 HD TV
While LG is more known for the top-of-the-line 4K OLED, they’ve created a great budget HD TV that gives a truly faithful 1080p picture. While it doesn’t support 4K or high dynamic range format, it delivers a great picture on a budget.
