Updating your TV’s image 50 times per second, a 50Hz refresh rate offers you clear motion display, whether you’re watching TV or movies.

How big is the room where your TV will go? You’ll want to choose a screen that’s large enough to provide a great picture, without overwhelming your room.
The ideal TV viewing distance is approximately 2.5 x the TV’s screen size. So for a 50” TV screen, you’ll want to sit about 125” from the TV (a bit over 10 feet, or around 3 metres).
Offering a picture resolution of up to 720p, HD TVs provide enough detail to enjoy digital TV channels, DVDs and old VHS tapes, though Blu-rays won’t appear in their highest possible quality.
Full HD TV
With a picture resolution of up to 1080p, you can watch digital broadcast channels and Blu-rays in their full level of detail on a Full HD TV. This is the resolution you’ll need to enjoy all the benefits of a Blu-ray player.
4K Ultra HD TV
While Ultra HD TVs provide four times the detail of a Full HD image, it can be hard to find 4K-quality entertainment available. Until more Ultra HD media becomes available, you can still use the 4K upscaling feature found in many Ultra HD TVs to enhance standard and high definition images up to near-4K quality.
Guide to key TV features
Curved screens give your living room a striking appearance, and they can help give your entertainment a more immersive feel (though not everyone agrees on this point).
Flat screens are what we’re all used to using these days. If bigger is better for your home, then Flat is the way to go. You can usually buy a bigger and smarter Flat screen TV for much cheaper than a Curved TV.
Smart TVs have come a long way in recent years, and are designed to make it easier to enjoy a wider variety of entertainment. Pretty much all Smart TVs come with built-in Wi-Fi (no more dongles!), allowing you to easily connect the TV to your home’s internet to access apps, games, video on demand and catch up TV services with just a few clicks of your remote.
If you don’t mind wearing a pair of 3D glasses (which can be a bit awkward), you can experience cinematic 3D entertainment in your very own home. Most 3D movies are found on 3D Blu-ray discs (make sure your Blu-ray player is 3D compatible), though some 3D TVs and Blu-ray players include a 3D conversion feature, which artificially upscales your 2D favourites into passable 3D. Also, don’t forget that all 3D TVs can also be used for regular 2D viewing as well.
There are two types of 3D TV:
Lightweight and streamlined Passive 3D glasses don’t require any batteries or power supply to provide a 3D experience. Passive 3D glasses are quite affordable and offer a decent 3D picture, though its level of detail is not as high as that of Active 3D .
Active 3D glasses offer 3D viewing in Full HD quality. However, they do require batteries or a power supply, and they’re usually more expensive than Passive 3D glasses.
When buying a TV, think about what other devices you plan to use alongside it, such as Blu-ray players, PVRs or game consoles. Make sure your new TV has all the right connections available for these accessories.
These days HDMI is the standard connection for most consumer electronics, as it carries High-Definition media without loss of quality. So if you have 3 HD devices at home, such as a PlayStation, Xbox and Pay TV service, then you will want to buy a TV with at least 3 HDMI inputs.
If you want to connect older VHS or DVD players, you will need a TV that includes a composite input.
If you want to use a Sound Bar or Home Theatre system, you will want to connect these via HDMI ARC or Digital Optical Audio Connection. Most TVs these days have a Digital Optical Audio Connection, but only the mid to high-end TVs have the HDMI CEC connection.
USB playback is available on many new TVs, though it’s worth double-checking that the files you want to play are compatible with the TV you’re purchasing.
Efficiency (power consumption)
The majority of new TVs use energy-efficient LED technology, which uses much less power than the older plasmas. The newer OLED TVs use even less energy, though they tend to have higher initial purchase prices at present (though this may change over time).
Appliances Online offers 2 types of TV installation:
