Well, if the special man in your life is big fan of TV, and what guy isn’t, then one thing that will really blow his socks off is a big screen Smart TV. On top of crystal clear picture that will make sporting events look amazing, Smart TV also comes with a wide variety of features that he might seriously enjoy, but doesn’t yet know exist! And of course, what guy doesn’t love to share a few brews with his best buddies and watch the game in his souped out mancave. Keep on reading to learn how to find him the perfect new TV.
Most tech product sales pages flood the reader with endless technical jargon, sadly with the intent of confusing the customer into up selling him or herself to a hot new metric or feature which might not be worth the money at all. Firstly, check out this article describing what smart TV is to get a basic idea of what to look for. Next, here are the specs which actually matter:
- Vertical Resolution
- Refresh Rate
- Picture Quality
You want to get the biggest TV possible that makes sense for the layout of his man cave. If his couch is 9 feet away from the screen, than 60 inches or larger is ideal. Vertical resolution means the number of pixels the Smart TV can process. The higher, the more detailed the picture is overall. Look for a smart TV with at least a 1080 vertical resolution. Refresh rate means how many new “screens” the TV can produce per second. The higher it is, the smoother the TV will look. Try to find a model with at least a 120HZ refresh rate. Picture quality is very important but also very hard to determine. There are a lot of factors which determine how good the TV will look – and it’s not obvious which is best based on numbers alone. Definitely check out an authoritative source for TV testing, and of course a source like smarttvreviews4u.net that gives objective reviews and comparisons between products.
With tools like those you should be able to narrow down the choices to a handful of great products. After that, you’ll want to check out some of the cool features that popular smart TV vendors like Vizio and Panasonic offer. Think about the cool bells and whistle features the guy will really love, and get him the best gift he’s ever gotten today!
