7 Factors to Consider When Looking for a Good TV

Now that we are stuck at home, we have to get the best of our home entertainment.

The first step to finding a good TV Is to look at all the other people have to say on what is on the market.

Reading people’s reviews and opinions will give you an idea of where to start your search online and what to avoid the process.

Britainreviews.co.uk has all the information on customer complaints and feedback you need on all online electronic components stores in the UK.

By the end of this article, you will be in a good position to choose the best TV that suits you.  let’s have a look at these factors.

1.  Price

All of these factors we shall looking at comes down to the price. You need to have a price range so you can know what features you need to rule out.

If there is no limit to how much you are willing to spend then you can get the best of every other aspect listed down below.

The market is all sorts of TV’s ranging from less than £100 to well over £50,000. You can even get customized TVs, of course, also at a “customized” price.

The average price of a good TV ranges from anything between £300 to £2000 pounds. Of course, you can get something cheaper but there’ll be a lot of things you have to sacrifice.

2.  Refresh Rate

The refresh rate is a representation of how many images can be displayed in a second by the TV. It is measured in hertz.

The refresh rates range between 60Hz to 240Hz.

When looking at the refresh rate it is recommended that you go with at least 120Hz  which is the standard for most flat-screen TVs.

You can always go higher for better TVs. 


These are the type of TV monitors.

 LCD TVs are often the cheapest and they represent all the technology and do not use light-emitting diodes.

LED technology is more recent compared to LCD. It lasts longer than LCD and is more pricy.

OLED On the other hand uses the same technology as LED but is more advanced. They definitely do cost higher than both LCD and LED.

If you’re looking to stay on the cheaper side of saying LCD is your option if you want an average standard-looking monitor and it is the option.

If you want to spend more, you can choose to get high-end LED TVs instead of OLED.

4.  TV resolutions

The TV’s resolution is another feature to be on the lookout for when buying a new TV.

The resolution essentially determines the picture quality. The higher the resolution the more it’s going to cost you.

TV Resolutions are categorized into 3; standard definition (SD), high definition (HD), and Ultra-high-definition (UHD)

Currently, the highest monitor resolution is 8k. Of course, this is very costly and we have to come back to what we can afford.

1080p (High Definition) TVs have decent images and cost and they don’t cost a lot of money.  However, I would advise you to spend a little more and get the 4K resolution because they are generally better and will last longer.

5.  Size

The size of a TV is a personal preference.

Larger size television is often pricier than smaller sizes of the same model but not in every case.

I say so because in some cases, a TV might be 50 inches and cost less than £300 while another model will be 32 inches and cost over £400.

The room size should also be a determining factor when looking at the size of a TV.

6.  High Dynamic Range (HDR)

HDR will essentially help improve your TV’s image quality. Having a TV with HDR is definitely a huge Plus.

HDR-compatible TVs are often very expensive especially with high-end brands but you can find the same feature in lesser-known brands.

7.  Speakes and sound

The TV speakers and sound and minor considerations but you can always go with better sound quality. 

Even with lower sound quality with your TV, you can always choose to add external speakers or soundbars.


The main factors that determine how good your TV is the resolution the monitors the refresh rate, HDR compatibility, and of course the price.

Other things to also consider are remote controls and warranty.
