We all want to keep up with the latest technology but, as far as televisions go, that isn’t always easy as we have so many choices available to us. It used to be so simple. Colour over black and white and the bigger the better. But now we have so many options to choose from it can all become a little bewildering. HD, HD Ready, LED, LCD, Plasma, 3D and now 4K and even smart TV's.

So what is the best TV for you and how do you choose between all the different types in this age of new technology? Let's look at the choices you have.

Smart TVs

They are becoming more and more popular and most of us will have heard of them but what are smart TV's?

Basically, a smart TV is any television that has built in internet access. This allows the viewer to access a whole range of online services including browsing the web. But of course online video can also be streamed to the TV as well as social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

smart tvs

How do Smart TVs work?

Of course to bring the online world into your television requires an internet connection. Most smart TV's will have an Ethernet port that you can use to connect your television to your existing router though some will have the hardware you need already built in.

Advantages of a Smart TV

There are many but probably one of the most exciting is that they allow the user to access video on demand services. There are a number of these services available such as Netflix and Lovefilm Instant that allow countless films to be downloaded to your TV.

This of course not only provides a great way of watching any movies that you want to see but can also save you money by not having to subscribe to expensive subscription TV channels.

As well as movies a smart TV will also allow you to watch any of your favourite programmes you may have missed with all the mainstream channels now having catch up services online such as the BBC iPlayer.

It's not just about the television

Which seems a strange thing to say but with a smart TV you are not just restricted to watching television. With the whole world wide net available you can surf along to any website you wish but you can also access the wide range of apps that manufacturers are now producing.

Most of us will be familiar with the apps that we can download to our smartphones but now manufacturers are beginning to release apps especially for smart TV's (if you're unfamiliar with apps they are basically small programmes that can perform different tasks such as playing games or planning a recipe).

Of course we all enjoy socialising and having friends round to watch the big match or a Royal wedding or two but with a smart TV we can also socialise virtually using Facebook (other social networks are available!). So, with a smart TV, you can chat away whilst still watching your favourite programmes. You can have a real time chat with a friend about Coronation Street whilst you’re both watching the episode in your own homes.

Freeview Ready TVs

Some TV's come with the added bonus of already having Freeview installed. This means that the TV can access all the 50+ Freeview digital TV channels and over 20 radio stations without you having to pay a subscription and without having to install a Freeview set top box.

3D TVs

It wasn't so long ago that 3D TV's were considered to be at the cutting edge of technology and were going to be something that every one of us would aspire to owning. And, although 3D probably hasn't been as successful as many would hope, there is no doubt that as the technology improves and more content becomes available more of us will be thinking of buying a 3D TV.

3d tvs

Why buy a 3D TV?

The simple reason is that watching sporting events and movies in 3D can be a spectacular experience. Watching the ball hit the back of the net or Bruce Willis running from yet another explosion makes for terrific viewing and, of course, the kids will be amazed at seeing their favourite characters come to life in 3D.

But the drawback with most 3D TV's is that you will need to wear special glasses to see the full screen effects which can be a little wearisome. However, some manufacturers already produce 3D TV's that can be viewed without glasses and, whilst they are prohibitively expensive at the moment, they will certainly become more affordable as the manufacturing process is refined and improved.

By the way, something that we are often asked, is can normal 2D channels be viewed on a 3D TV? The answer is yes. All 3D TV's can be switched between 3D and 2D quite easily.

Choosing a 3D TV

There are a couple of things to think about. Firstly the size of the screen. With 3D you will want the biggest screen you can to enjoy the full effects of the movie or event you are watching so look for around 40” plus. You also need to decide the type of 3D TV, either active or passive, that will suit you.

What is the difference between Active and Passive 3D TVs?

When choosing your 3D TV you may notice it being described as either active or passive. But what does this mean?

Active 3D gives a higher resolution image for better effects but the slight downside is that the glasses that come with the TV can sometimes feel a little bulky. Conversely the glasses that come with Passive 3D TV's are lighter but the image resolution is lower.

It may be six of one and half a dozen of the other but generally most will prefer the better picture quality that active 3D TV’s provide.

Plasma, LED or LCD?

TV's on a computer screen all look more or less the same but each will belong to one of three different types depending on how they are backlit; either plasma, LED or LCD.

LCD TV's have sold the most in the past though LED TV's are becoming more popular now. Plasma TV's though are declining in popularity and are less numerous than the other two types though they are best suited to very large screen sizes. But what are the differences between the three?

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

One thing that you should consider about an LCD TV is that they are much bulkier than either LCD or Plasma TV's. This is because they need a light source at the rear of the set that shines through liquid crystals to create a picture on the screen.

LED (Light Emitting Diode)

These TV's build on the LCD technology but instead of liquid cells use thousands of tiny LED's to form the picture that is displayed on the TV screen. These diodes produce a much brighter picture than can be achieved by an LCD TV. LED TV's are also very thin and can be easily mounted on a wall. They also use significantly less energy than the other two types of TV.

LED TVs

But, just to complicate things, there are different types of LED televisions; ELED and DLED.

ELED TVs

Edge lit Light Emitting Diode televisions are, as the name suggests, lit from the edge. This results in a much slimmer TV. If you are into design and want a wall mounted TV that more-or-less sits on the wall then this type of television will undoubtedly appeal to you.

DLED

By contrast Direct lit Light Emitting Diode TV’s have the LED’s in a cluster behind the screen. This means the TV won’t be as slim as an ELED model but the picture is just as stunning.

SNB

You may notice in some televisions descriptions the acronym SNB. This stands for Super Narrow Bezel. Televisions with this feature will have an incredibly slim profile and are ideal for mounting on a wall and deliver exceptional wide-angle viewing.

Plasma

These televisions build a picture from gas cells between two panes of glass and come into their own when they are large screen and mounted on a wall. These TV's don't perform well when exposed to light so a brightly lit living room isn't the best place for a Plasma TV.

4K TVs

The newest technology around 4k, or Ultra High Definition (UHD) as it is also known, promises to bring a whole new dimension to our home viewing. Whilst it only seems like yesterday that we were being wowed with the virtues of HD televisions 4K raises the bar once more.

4K tvs

Developed as a digital technology for showing high definition movies in cinemas manufacturers are now looking to adapt 4K TV's for the home. Whilst their availability at the moment is limited, indeed there is little infrastructure currently around to support the platform (no 4K TV channels for example), 4K TV's are bound to become more mainstream as the manufacturers ramp up their production efforts.

Which size TV should I buy?

The days of squinting at a small black & white TV in the corner of the living room are well and truly gone and now we can choose models from 22” right up to 60” or even 80” screen size.

Of course it is tempting to simply buy the biggest TV we can afford but, depending on the space you have available, it may be wise to think that sometimes ‘less is more’ especially in smaller rooms.

which size tv should i buy

However, if in doubt, the general rule of thumb to follow is that the further away the seating area is from the TV the bigger the screen size you will need.

Having said that of course the great thing about modern TV’s is that the picture quality is so good that we can be very close to the screen without the picture becoming pixelated. So, if you want the biggest TV that you can squeeze into the room – then why not? But, if you want more help with choosing the right size of television, read this article.

Picture quality

One thing that manufacturers are always looking to improve is the picture quality that their televisions produce. And, as you would expect, this is constantly evolving.

We used to have just 'standard definition' but now we have HD 'higher definition' televisions and now, as we have seen, even ultra-high definition 4K TV's.

HD is vastly superior to standard definition and now of course there are many HD TV channels and all new DVD's are released in HD. But, where things do become slightly confusing, is that there are HD and HD ready TV's available. But what is the difference?

The difference between HD and HD Ready TVs

A HD ready TV has a screen resolution of 720p which means it is twice as good as a normal standard definition set. However a full HD TV has a much higher resolution of 1080p which is obviously far superior to the old standard definition sets and twice as good as HD ready televisions. A full HD TV is superb for larger screens and the pictures are much more vibrant than even a HD ready TV can produce.

Motion rates

Something else to consider is the motion rate of the TV. This is measured in Hertz (HZ) and describes how fast the TV processes its images. Basically the higher the motion rate the quicker the image refreshes and the smoother the picture will be. So, for example, a TV that has a motion rate of 600 HZ will be absolutely ideal for watching high speed sports such as motor racing as the image will quickly refresh and not become blurred.

Home entertainment centre

Your television can now easily become a terrific home entertainment centre. With the addition of DVD and Blu-Ray players and a surround sound speaker system your TV will become an entertainment hub for all the family to enjoy. Extend it still further with a media player for access to thousands of movies and TV programmes and a games console.

Doing the business

99% of us have a television in our living rooms but It’s not just in the home that TV’s are considered essential. Businesses are using large screen TV’s to engage customers, increase sales and boost productivity.

Of course many of us will be familiar with watching England’s latest World Cup debacle on a big screen TV in the local but it’s not just pubs that use TV’s for their business. From the doctors waiting room to the office to the gym many companies now consider televisions to be an integral part of their business.

Using TV for business

A TV is one of the cheapest and most effective marketing tools any business can use. It used to be sufficient to scatter a few old magazines around but if you have a waiting area or reception room where clients congregate a TV displaying appropriate marketing messages will not only help to reinforce your brand but can also generate new business.

tvs for business

But TV’s are also useful when they are kept away from the gaze of customers. In the office they are great tools for helping present information for training, displaying the latest sales figures and a 1001 other things when staff need a visual stimulus.

Who uses a TV for business?

  • Bars, restaurants and cafes have traditionally made good use of TV’s knowing the value of keeping customers engaged and that big events will draw in extra customers and generate revenue
  • Doctors and dentists use TV’s in their waiting rooms to help customers relax before appointments
  • Marketing & PR companies will use TV’s to present their work with a big screen the perfect medium to display a portfolio
  • Gyms typically have TV’s above their exercise equipment to relax and motivate their members
  • In the office TV’s can be used to display essential internal information, serve as a training aid and are ideal for presentations

    The best TVs for business

It depends very much on location but the majority of time a large screen TV, at least 42”, will be the ideal solution for most business environments. For smaller waiting rooms a 32” inch model would be ideal but whatever the size mounting the TV securely to the wall will help save space.

Not sure about all the acronyms you see in a televisions product listing? Don’t know your HD from your HDMI? Not too worry. We’ll answer the main questions we see here:

What is screen definition?

The screen definition is how the quality of picture is measured and is defined as the number of horizontal lines. For example, standard definition TV’s produce 576 lines of information. Basically the more lines the better the picture.

What is HD?

HD stands for High Definition. HD resolution is 1080 and offers a much sharper image and better audio than standard definition.

What is HD Ready?

HD ready is sort of a halfway house between standard definition and full HD producing 720 lines of information compared to the 1080 of HD.

What is a 4K TV?

4K is also known as Ultra HD. It is a measure of picture quality that is approximately 4 times better than normal HD.

What is Ultra HD?

Another name for 4K.

Do I need 3D glasses to watch 3D TV?

do i need 3d glasses to watch 3d tv

Yes, although technology is being developed to enable 3D content to be viewed without glasses.

Can I watch normal TV on a 3D TV?

Yes. All 3D TVs can be used to watch normal 2D programming.

What is a smart TV?

A smart TV can access the internet and display online content including movies, games and catch up TV.

What is the difference between Plasma, LCD and LED TVs?

The three TV types are very different:

  • LCD or Liquid Crystal Display sets generate a picture from coloured crystal cells
  • Plasma TVs build pictures from gas cells behind the screen
  • LED or Light Emitting Diodes TVs use the same technology as LCD sets but they use many more and much smaller LEDs. LED TVs are now the biggest seller and most manufacturers now concentrate on producing LED televisions.

What is a ELED TV?

These televisions have the LEDs positioned around the edge. This results in a slimmer profile.

What is a DLED TV?

In these Direct Lit televisions the LEDs are positioned across the panel behind the screen.

What is response time?

This is the time it takes a pixel on the screen to change from black to white. The faster the response time the sharper the picture. For example a slow response time will result in blurred images when watching motor racing or other fast action programming. Look for response times below 10ms.

What does brightness mean on a TV?

The brightness projected by a TV is major factor in the quality of the picture it produces. Measured by candela per square metre which is written as cd/m2 the higher the number the brighter the image. Look for 100 cd/m2 or more.

What is contrast ratio?

Contrast ratio measures the differential between a black pixel and a white one. Along with brightness this is an important factor in determining the quality of the picture. As an example contrast ratio is written as 5000:1 and the higher the number the better. Look for 4000:1 or better.

What is aspect ratio on a TV?

The aspect ratio on a televisions spec refers to the proportion between the width and height of the TV’s picture. The aspect ratio on a HD or HD Ready set will be 16:9 whilst on a standard set it will be 4:3. Wide screen TVs will have different aspect ratios of up to 21:9 which is referred to as CinemaWide.

What does viewing angle mean?

Viewing angle is displayed as degrees, eg, 178°, though the quality of the picture is reduced if viewed from a wide angle. Don’t worry about viewing angle unless you have multiple sofas and chairs and a large family to accommodate around the TV.

What are the connections on a TV?

Reading a television’s product description will reveal several different connectors or ports (also referred to as interfaces). Let’s look at the most common ones:

  • RF – for antenna or cable connectors.
  • A/V inputs – for connecting older devices.
  • S Video / composite video – can be used for attaching camcorders or cameras but often not found on modern TVs as the only provide low res images.
  • HDMI – The more of these ports a TV has the better. HDMI carries both audio and HD video. Connect your set top box, laptop and other devices through this port to view the content on your TV.
  • VGA – can be used to connect your laptop to the Tv to display the picture from the computer. However a separate audio cable will need to be used if you require sound as well.
  • USB – can be used for connecting all your portable devices including flash drives
  • SCART – used for connecting AV devices such as DVD players.
