Whether you’re looking for a basic or high-performance gaming TV, The biggest factor in your decision will probably be screen size.Smart TV

The Guidelines from the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers recommends sitting at a distance where the screen fills up about 30° of your field of vision as a minimum for a good experience. Higher field of view was first made possible with Full HD resolutions, but 4k enhances that ability even more.

Extended Warranties : Save Your Money

Smart TV with HDRBiggest revenue generators for electronics stores is the extended warranty as they are so rarely needed.

So, if you do get a lemon, it’s likely to be apparent, at least within the first 30 days of ownership….. a time period usually covered by a regular store-return policy. Beyond that, most manufacturers offer a one-year warranty. Credit card companies may offer additional automatic coverage on purchases, so check with your provider. Costco is a good place to buy as they have 90 day return policy.

Smart TVs

Smart TVs are essentially regular TVs that have built-in wifi capabilities for connecting to the Internet, which is why they’re also known as Internet-ready TVs.

Why do smart TV’s have terrible browsers in them?

QLED TV
The tv manufacturers Business models is to be blamed, Apps make money, Web Browsers let you bypass Apps (FCC looks other way .. capitalism).

All of the smart tv interfaces load slowly, feel unresponsive, and as many others have noted suffer from ui design issues in addition to the performance problems.

TV Screen Size OLED TV
Bigger and closer is usually better when it comes to choosing the perfect tv for your room. Not only is the tv size the biggest factor affecting the price of a television, but it also has a huge impact on the perceived picture quality and color. The more a TV fills your view, the more captivating the content will be.

Smart TVs For Streaming
Almost all new TVs come equipped with a smart platform. Some TV manufacturers choose to use their own smart platforms, where others choose to integrate smart platforms like Android or Roku. No matter the case, the selection of apps is great and most common apps are available on almost all platforms.

The Best Live TV Streaming Services
When it comes to services that help you save money, cable is never on that list.

The best way to maximize your content selection is to buy a set-top box such as a Roku Premiere, Fire TV Stick 4K, or Apple TV 4K
