Many people will fall into a misunderstanding when they buy TV sets: the price is cheap, the size is large, the quality of TV sets is good, and the cost performance is high. As a result, they can only sigh “cheap is not good” after they buy them home.
The TV sets on the market have many brands, complex parameters and different prices. The cheap ones are several hundred yuan, while the expensive ones are tens of thousands. Therefore, many people in the purchase of TV will have such a question: what is the difference between different price TV? Is it money for money? How to choose the TV set? Today, let’s talk about these problems.
Brands often reflect the performance of TV sets. Big brands of TV sets are relatively mature and excellent in manufacturing technology, quality control, technology, after-sales service and so on. Because of this, different brands of TV sets may have the possibility of brand premium. On the whole, the price, quality and technology of joint venture (import) brands are higher than those of domestic brands.
The major TV brands on the market are Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic, Toshiba and Philips. Domestic brands mainly include Hisense, TCL, glory, Skyworth, Xiaomi, sharp and Konka.
However, although the brand reflects the performance of TV sets, it does not determine the quality of TV sets. After all, different brands of TV sets can be divided into low-end, middle end and high-end products with different parameters and prices. So in the final analysis, the brand is only the basis of choosing TV sets, but also depends on other parameters.
TV sets of different prices also have certain differences on the screen,
There are three aspects: screen size, screen resolution and panel display technology.
Screen size mainly affects our viewing experience. Under the same parameters, the larger the size of the TV, the higher the price. After all, more materials are needed. About the choice of screen size, there is no technical content, mainly to see the actual situation at home and personal viewing habits, the farther the viewing distance (large living room area), choose the large size, the closer the viewing distance (small living room area), choose the small size.
Screen resolution mainly affects the definition of the picture, and ultimately affects our viewing experience. The higher the definition, the higher the price. For example, the previous 2K resolution, the popular 4K resolution and the emerging 8K resolution.
Panel display technology, which is one of the core technologies of TV, often determines the quality of the picture, and ultimately affects our viewing experience. There are led, qled, OLED, uled and other TVs on the market, but in essence, there are only two factions: LCD TV (including LED, qled, qd-lcd, uled) and OLED TV.
We don’t need to know much about the specific imaging principle of different display technologies. Different display technologies have different characteristics, which are mainly reflected in five aspects: gamut (color richness), brightness, contrast, response time and visual angle.
At present, OLED TV has the best picture quality experience, but the price is also the highest. If you want to pursue the ultimate picture quality experience, it is recommended to give priority to OLED TV. If the budget is average and you have a certain pursuit of picture quality experience, OLED or qled is also a good choice.
Image quality processing technology
In addition to the screen display technology, there is another parameter that determines the image quality of the TV, that is the image quality processing technology used in the TV. If the screen resolution is the watershed between the low-end computer and the middle end computer, then the display technology and image quality processing technology are the key parameters to distinguish the middle end computer and the high-end computer.
At present, the most widely used image quality processing technologies of TV include motion compensation technology, light control technology, wide color gamut technology, screen peak brightness, screen refresh rate and image quality processing chip.
The more picture quality processing technologies used in TV sets, the higher the grade and the higher the price. The low-end computer does not have image quality processing technology; There are only one or two image quality processing technologies in the middle end; At least 1-4 image quality processing technologies shall be adopted for medium and high-end computers; High end computer, all the image quality processing technology is indispensable.
Motion compensation: the most basic image quality processing technology, TV has this technology, can reduce the picture of the card Dun feeling, improve the picture fluency.
Light control partition: it is mainly to improve the contrast of TV picture. It is divided into side entry strip light control partition and straight down chessboard light control partition. As consumers, we don’t need to know more about HDR.
Wide gamut Technology: that is, whether the TV can display rich colors. The TV with wide gamut technology will have a higher picture color richness.
Screen refresh rate: refers to the screen refresh rate of TV. The higher the refresh rate, the higher the picture fluency of TV. The screen refresh rate of high-end TV can reach 120Hz.
Peak screen brightness: what is the maximum brightness of the TV? The higher the brightness, the higher the price of the TV. The peak screen brightness of high-end TV can reach more than 1000 nits.
Image quality processing chip: the above image quality processing technology is aimed at the TV image quality, and the image quality processing technology is aimed at the optimization of the video picture, such as increasing the details of dark and bright parts, smoothing the gradient, reducing noise, increasing clarity, accurately restoring color, etc. all these are the credit of the image quality processing chip. Generally speaking, only high-end computers and big brands will use this technology. For example, the high-end computers of Sony, Samsung and LG are also very expensive.
The hardware configuration of the TV, such as processor, running memory, storage space, audio, Bluetooth interface and so on, mainly affects the running fluency of the TV and our use experience. In terms of TV hardware and performance configuration, the bigger the better. Of course, the higher the parameters are, the more expensive the TV is.
The additional functions of the TV, such as intelligent control, entertainment mode, game mode and KTV mode, affect our use experience. The more additional functions, the higher the price of the TV. In terms of additional functions, the TV on the market can meet our daily needs, so we should consider it in combination with personal living habits and budget.
In addition, there are also some aspects to consider in the purchase of TV sets, such as boot advertising, film source richness, ease of use of the operating system, etc. these aspects still affect our use experience, but they are not particularly important.
Generally speaking, the above aspects jointly determine the quality of TV sets, and thus determine the price of TV sets. Conversely, these aspects ultimately affect our viewing experience. Now, do you know what’s the difference between different price TV sets? Do you know how to buy TV?
