Quick Buying Guide for Smart LED TV under 30000
Choose the Right Panel – There are only two types of panels, that is VA panel and IPS panel. Both are better in a particular scenario. The IPS panel provides better viewing angles, meaning the picture does not degrade or inverts much when viewed from an angle. While the VA panel has a higher contrast ratio giving better picture quality. A VA panel is better for watching movies in a dark room while an IPS panel is overall better.
Resolution – Higher the Resolution, better the picture detailing. Under the 30k price range, you will find full HD and Ultra HD resolution TVs. At this price having a TV with below full HD resolution would be a wastage of money. You will find UHD resolution in almost every Chinese TV available at this price range while you will rarely find reputable brands like Samsung, LG, Sony providing UHD TVs at this price
Choose the Screen Size – In this price range, you will find TVs from 40 to 55 inches in screen size. The bigger the TV size the better will be the experience. However, do note that you have to sit at least at a certain distance from your TV based on the size. You cannot place a very big 60 inch TV in a tiny room. Buy according to your room size.
Check the connectivity options – Every Smart TV will have Wi-Fi in it. But the number of ports, availability of Bluetooth may vary. Some TV may have fewer ports or may not have Bluetooth in it. So check this properly before making a decision
Check supported Apps – All major Smart TVs support netflix and amazon prime. Some may not support them. Double-check this on a TV. While in the case of android TV you can rest assured as all android TV support major popular apps. However, brands like Samsung and LG do not make android TVs.
Research After Sales – Don’t fall in the trap of low pricing. Many Chinese or India TV companies may offer various specs at a very low price. A TV may not always stand on the promise of quality the company makes. If the display or other thing fails on your TV. Then customer service can alone be of any help for you. Buy a TV of a reputable brand. Don’t buy from some random Chinese company whose name no one has heard before.
Refresh Rate – Refresh rate is the number of times the screen is changed per second to show a video. It is an important factor in playing games. TVs are not meant for playing games, they are designed to just watch tv shows or movies. It’s the least important factor while choosing a TV
