How to Choose a TV During Black Friday
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: The most important piece of advice we’d give to someone looking for a new television is to know your limit — in terms of both budget and screen size. After all, the absolute last thing you want to do is part with north of $2500 for a QLED or OLED 4K TV, only to find it won’t fit through the door, let alone on the wall, when it arrives (and has pushed you over your credit limit in the process). Decided on these before you start browsing the catalogs to avoid the unnecessary stress of having to organize a return and refund.
Next, start considering the various features that could be of use. There’s a lot to choose from, so take some time researching the differences between each manufacturer’s smart software. For example, TCL licenses Roku OS, which is the undisputed king of streaming, but it’s no match for Android TV, which comes bundled on Sony’s 4K TVs, in the hands-free and smart-connected department — or even LG’s WebOS, for that matter. Other notable features worth looking at are voice control and refresh rate — the higher, the better for fast-paced viewing.
By now, you should have tunneled in on a manufacturer. The next step is to start looking at the various models they have to offer. Decide how important screen quality is. If you’re a convenience viewer looking for a television to watch the latest must-see Netflix Original after work and the occasional movie on a weekend, a regular LED TV like the TCL 6 Series will do the trick. After something a bit more immersive? Consider a (Samsung) QLED or an (LG or Sony) OLED like the LG CX Series OLED 4K TV or the Samsung Q800T OLED 8K TV.
