If you are selecting a new LG television, you’ll have plenty of sizes to choose from. LG TV sizes range from 32-inch class and smaller to 85-inch class and larger. When it comes to TVs, bigger is usually better. If you’re getting a television for your bedroom, you probably don’t want to go smaller than 40 inches, and you’ll want an LG 55-inch TV or an LG 65-inch TV for a living room or main TV-viewing room, so everyone can see it. If you’re picking an LG television for your entertainment center, measure the space carefully and make sure you have at least an inch on the sides and on top for ventilation.
You’ll also want to decide between an LED LG TV and an OLED LG TV. What’s the difference? LED televisions use LCD display technology with an LED backlight that delivers impressive clarity and color detail, along with exceptional contrast. OLED TVs, on the other hand, don’t require a backlight because every pixel is self-illuminating. OLED screens provide superior color reproduction and detail, and effectively offer an infinite contrast ratio. The deep blacks you see on an OLED TV provide you with true-to-life realism and depth.
Your next decision will likely involve resolution. Full HD TVs offer high-definition resolution, specified as 1920 x 1080 pixels. 4K TVs offer four times the resolution of Full HD, and 8K TVs deliver four times the resolution of 4K. Choosing 8K might seem like a no-brainer, but there is another thing to consider. When the initial 8K TVs hit the market, there was very little 8K content available to take full advantage of this technology, but every day more 8K content becomes available.
Getting the most out of your new LG TV.
The type of content you watch is another consideration in selecting the best LG television for you. Will you be getting cable? Will you use an antenna? Both? Do you want to stream the latest movies and shows from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney+ and the rest? For streaming, you can use a streaming device connected to your TV, or you can pick a smart LG television which offers internet connectivity. Smart TVs open up a whole gamut of entertainment options including streaming video, games, social media and more. With a streaming device, you’ll need an input. You’ll also need an input for your LG Blu-ray or DVD player if you’re planning on watching Blu-ray movies. If you’re a gamer, you’ll want an input for a game console, and if you work from home, you might want to connect your laptop, too. Be sure to choose an LG TV with enough HDMI ports to accommodate your needs.
