Key Factors to Choosing the Ideal 60-Inch TV Set

A 60-inch TV is a worthy contender whether you are upgrading or getting your first set. The right choice of TV will meet a wide range of needs, from hosting your favourite games to marathon movie nights. There are a variety of makes and models to pick from on eBay.

How is 4K different from HD?

The resolution determines the quality of a television unit. It is the composition of the pixels (horizontal lines and vertical columns) that affects clarity. The greater the pixels, the higher the resolution and consequently, the finer the details. HD and Ultra HD or 4 K are two of the resolution options available when picking a 60-inch TV. Here is how the two vary:

  • HD – Available in two resolutions, 1280x720 and 1920x1080, most LED, LCD, and OLED TVs are equipped with HD capabilities. The advantage of HD is that most of the content available, whether it’s on cable TV or streaming services, is compatible.
  • 4 K – The pixels in ultra HD are four times those in HD with 2,160 horizontal lines. A 4K TV will come with a resolution of 3840x2160. This difference in pixels means sharper and more detailed pictures than what is available on HD.
How do you choose a smart TV?

Smart TVs have inbuilt internet capabilities that allow users to connect to Wi-Fi and access content. The functions offered by a smart 60-inch TV set are some of the determinants to look at when picking a model. How many social media icons does a TV have? Can you stream videos? Which streaming services are available? Check if the number of apps that the TV can run meets your viewing requirements.

What is the right refresh rate?

The refresh rate indicates the number of times that a TV refreshes an image, which influences the way movements are portrayed on the screen. The rate for the majority of TV models is 60 times per second, which is 60 Hz, but a 60-inch TV that is gong to be used to watch rapidly moving objects, such as car races or football games, will require a higher refresh rate. Manufacturers have units with double the base rate, which is 120 Hz or even triple. When a TV is tagged with ‘effective refresh rate,’ the actual refresh rate is half of that, so you should always check the manufacturer site for details.
