Frequently Asked Questions About The Best TV
When it comes to choosing the best TV for you, there are a number of questions worth considering before purchasing.
Should I buy a 4K or 8K TV?
Whether you should buy a 4K or 8K TV largely depends on what you want to use it for.
If you're wanting to play games on your PS5 or Series X at 120fps, even with the most premium 8K TV you'll be capped at a 4K resolution as 8K does not yet support 120Hz.
One of the main appeals to buying an 8K TV now is as an investment to future proof your setup and allow you to readily view 8K content when it becomes more mainstream.
Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X have the potential to run games at 8K and so it could be a worthy investment.
With that in mind, if you don't want to stretch to the price of an 8K TV, 4K is still a solid choice and should still be the best mainstream option for a few years to come.
What is the best screen size for a TV?
These days, TV sizes tend to range from around 32-inches to upwards of 85, the ideal size for you depends on the amount of space you have available and your viewing distance.
For most people, wanting a larger TV for your living room is preferable and so we'd say 55-65 inches is a solid choice for the majority.
Your viewing distance is recommended to be 1.5 times the size of the TV, for example, if you have a 50-inch screen, it is recommended that you sit roughly 75-inches away from it to get the best experience.
Do I need a high refresh rate TV?
Much like deciding on whether you go for a 4K or 8K panel. opting for a high refresh rate TV depends on the use case.
If you're wanting a properly fluid gaming experience on a next-gen console, then going for a TV that supports 120Hz is a practical must.
However, if you're spending your time watching movies, then opting for something a little more well-rounded with home cinema features such as Filmmaker Mode may suit better.
