THE SUITABLE TV SIZE FOR YOUR ROOM!
With the new UHD TV, it makes it fine for one to sit closely to the TV as the pixels do not break, however a suitable TV size is necessary to avoid eye-straining.
The measurements below shows the TV size that is suitable for the distance between the TV and viewing distance (in feet) from the position of the TV to the sitting position:
QLED vs OLED vs UHD
Breaking it own, it stands QLED stands for Quantum dots Light Emitting Diode, where it uses tiny particles called quantum dots where when it is hit by light from the TV's LED backlight, it produces a bright and light colours.
OLED (known as Organic Light-Emitting Diode) on the other hand produces its own light with each dot. It does not use an LCD. Both are a new type of technology for TVs. An OLED is a thin and light in weight TV, which eases the use of customers when handling it.
However, a UHD TV operates like a QLED TV in that it has an LED backlight and LCD screen, but it does not have QLED's quantum dots to improve the colour and brightness of the picture shown. To avoid misconcepts, a UHD TV is basically a TV with a higher resolution, but it is far from the new technology of QLED and OLED.
A TV's resolution is defined by the amount of horizontal and vertical pixels.
For 1080p TVs and lower, the resolution refers to the number of vertical pixels, while 4k and 8k TVs mean they have nearly 4,000 and 8,000 horizontal pixels, respectively.
Higher-resolution displays allow you to see more fine details in your favorite games, movies, and TV shows.
While the resolution isn't the only aspect of picture quality, it's important, and most people can easily notice and appreciate the difference between a high-resolution TV and a low-resolution one, especially if they're sitting up close.
TV BUYING TIPS
Go with 4K (aka Ultra HD) and better with HDR. It is the most important factors for TV picture quality.
Bigger is better. Bigger + 4K these days = spectacular. Jaw-dropping. Wow factor.
Upgrade the sound. Audio is more than half the experience, and your TV’s built-in speakers aren’t up to the task.
Upgrade your HDMI cable. Get a new HDMI cable worthy of your TV investment and see every single pixel replicated in glorious form.
HOW DO YOU ENHANCE YOUR TV VIEWING TIPS
Change Your TV Settings
It may seem simple, but getting to know your TV settings can completely change your viewing experience for the better. Chances are, your television has a preset picture mode that’s perfect for anything you use the television for. If the presets aren’t working quite for you, though, take a look at the colour temperature, brightness, and contrast. Changing these settings can deliver the best picture quality to enhance your TV viewing experience.
Change Your Comfort Settings
Sitting down to your favourite movie or show is a time to relax and unwind, so don’t be afraid to get comfortable. Put on your comfy clothes and grab a snack, and make sure your surroundings are as homey as possible. Keeping an extra blanket or pillows in the living room can make the time you spend there even more relaxing. Decorate with fairy lights or dim the lights for a movie theatre effect that will improve any movie night or TV binge.
Manage Your Profiles
It can be frustrating when you prepare everything and finally sit down in front of the TV, only to struggle to find anything good to watch. Creating and managing your own profile on each of your streaming services can help. When everyone on the account has their own profile, their lists and suggestions will remain separate from yours, which means you’ll get more content you enjoy when you search for something new to watch.
