When choosing a television, you should first consider whether you want a model with or without smart features. You should also consider the size, resolution, optimal viewing distance, refresh rate, type of tuner (terrestrial, cable or satellite broadcasting), and other practical functions.

Classic or Smart – what is best?

Smart TV 

In addition to standard television broadcasts, smart TVs allow you to watch Youtube videos, view pictures and videos from your mobile phone or tablet, and much more (functions vary from model to model). To use all these functions you must be connected to the Internet. Compared to traditional TVs with similar image quality, Smart TVs are slightly more expensive.

Classic TV

Compared with smart TVs with similar picture quality, classic TVs are cheaper but don't have the range of functions that smart TVs offer. Instead they are only suitable for watching TV and playing movies from a computer or DVD / Blu-ray player.

What else should I consider when buying a TV?

The optimum viewing distance, size and resolution

When choosing the size and resolution of a television, you should consider how far you will sit from the TV.

Screen Size (1"= 2.54 cm) / What you will watch SD programs, movies on DVD* HD programs, movies on Blu-ray*
Up to 32" (approx. 81 cm) 1.5 to 2.4 m 0.9 to 1.3 m
39-50" (approx. 99-127 cm) 2.9 to 3.7 m 1.5 to 2 m
55-65" (approx. 140-165 cm) 4 to 4.8 m 2.2 to 2.6 m
75-100" (approx. 191-254 cm) 5.6 to 7.5 m 3 to 4 m

*A large proportion of television programs are now broadcast in SD resolution (576p), whereas some programs broadcast in HD (720p or 1080i).

  • To watch SD programs or movies on DVD, a model with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels will suffice.
  • To watch HD programs or movies on Blu-ray, we recommend a model with Full HD resolution (1920 × 1080 pixels) or higher.
  • If you plan to watch movies in high 4K resolution (3840 × 2160 pixels), choose from our range of 4K TVs.

Panel refresh rate

  • 50Hz panel - found on cheaper TVs. Compared with 100Hz panels, images are less smooth and sharp during fast-moving scenes.
  • 100Hz panel - provides sharp and smooth images during fast-moving scenes. You will really notice the difference in quality when watching sports or action movies.

Type type

  • DVB-S / S2 - for receiving satellite television broadcasts.
  • DVB-C - for receiving cable television.
  • DVB-T - for digital terrestrial (aerial) broadcasting. 
  • DVB-T2 + HEVC - for digital terrestrial (aerial) TV broadcasting in the new standard. 

It is important to make sure that the place where the TV will be used has access to the same type of broadcast that the TV itself supports. Don't forget to buy a cable to connect the TV to a satellite, antenna, or a cable TV socket.

Backlight (only LED LCD TV)

  • Direct TV with LED - compared with Edge LED, these models offer evenly backlit displays and truer black colour, providing better contrast. The disadvantage is the higher price and usually larger dimensions (depth).
  • Television with Edge LED - compared with similarly sized TVs with Direct LED, these models are often less expensive and have a smaller dimensions (depth). However, they usually provides less contrast and lower illumination. The difference is especially apparent towards the sides of the TV screen, which may be somewhat lighter.

Useful features and functions

  • WiFi - wirelessly connect a TV to a home network and the Internet.
  • Bluetooth - wirelessly connect a TV soundbar, speakers, headphones, keyboard or mouse.
  • USB connector - play movies from an external storage device; connect a keyboard or mouse.
  • Miracast feature - wirelessly display photos or play videos from your phone and tablet on your TV.
  • Widi function - wirelessly view pictures, play videos, or display your desktop notebook TV.
  • PIP / PBP / POP - watch two television stations at once.
  • CI slot - insert the card and connect directly to a TV with a satellite or cable television outlet. So you don't need to purchase a set-top box.
  • PVR (Personal View Recorder) - record a film, serial or program on a USB disk or flash drive. On a TV with a dual tuner you can simultaneously record one TV station while watching another.

Televisions

The most important parameter when buying a television is its size, with one simple rule – the bigger, the better. 3D televisions, with the help of special glasses, are able to deliver space perception to the viewer. Depending on the technology used, there are LED TVs, LCD TVs and plasma TVs. The individual specs can vary to a high degree, but the presence of a DVB-T digital tuner to receive terrestrial broadcasts is a must in every model. Some televisions boast DVB-C or DVB-S tuners to receive digital transmission over cable or satellite respectively.

Manufacturers have perfected the two technologies currently used, and although the principles of signal processing and display technologies are different, both guarantee an immersive experience. In addition to regular-sized models, LCD and LED TVs also come in small sizes (portable TVs), while plasma TVs usually feature larger diagonals.

LCD TV
LCD TV screens are thin and flat. They use liquid-crystal technology to display the picture. The image is made up of a large number of points, or pixels. Each pixel is composed of three sub-pixels (a red, a green and a blue one according to the RGB colour model). Utilising modern technologies, it is possible to control the luminance of each pixel individually, thus achieving millions of colour combinations. Unlike potentially eye-damaging CRT TVs, LCD technology is kinder to the eye and more energy efficient. Some of the most important parameters when selecting an LCD TV are the diagonal size, resolution, response time, contrast ratio, brightness and viewing angles.

LED TV
LED TVs use the same technology as LCD TVs, but they use bright LEDs for their backlight, ensuring better contrast and lower power consumption.

Plasma Television
Plasma televisions utilise ionized noble gases, neon and xenon. These gases are housed in small cells between two glass plates and when electrical energy is applied, the cell lights up. Three such cells (red, green and blue) form a single pixel. Combining various luminance intensities of the individual cells, the pixel gets its final colour, and all together they form the whole picture. Some important parameters to look for when selecting a plasma television are the diagonal size, resolution, contrast ratio, brightness and viewing angles.

3D TV
Three-dimensional TVs use two different technologies - active and passive. Active 3D technology requires a set of powered glasses, which dim the lenses in a regular rhythm, meaning your eye sees only the image intended for it. Passive 3D technology, on the other hand, uses polarised lenses, blocking half the lines and delivering only 1920 × 540 pixels. The advantage of the latter is a simpler design, which is reflected in a more affordable price, but the maximum resolution is lower than with active 3D technology.
