Your Guide To Buying a 50 Inch Tv

By Ben Reed

    50 inch televisions hit a sweet spot in the TV market between size, quality, and price. Whether you want one for your home den, your bedroom, or you basement entertainment center, there’s a 50” TV with the features and specifications you’re looking for. But with so many models and brands on the market, it can be difficult narrowing down your options. To help guide you through the choices, we’ve put together this simple shopping guide that’ll get you watching in no time.

    Since you already know the size of the TV you want, the type of 50” television you get should be based on your viewing and mounting preferences. Here are today’s top options, and some information about each:

    LED LCD TVs: LED LCD TVs, most commonly called just LED TVs, are a great option for bright or well-lit rooms as their matte-finish screens reduce glare to improve viewing. And their high-power, low-energy LEDs bulbs help reduce electricity consumption, which means savings over the life of your new television.

    Smart TVs: Smart TVs are becoming increasingly common, and a majority of new 50” TVs are classified as such. These TVs integrate an internet connection and installed applications - similar to those on your tablet or smartphone - as something of a combination TV and computer. Some are WiFi enabled, while others use ethernet cables, but all allow you to access internet content through the installed programs.

    3D TVs: 3D TVs use advanced technology to display media in 3D - while of course letting you watch 2D programs just as you would on a normal television. They let you watch 3D content with special, included glasses that match the TV Passive 3D glasses are battery-free and lightweight with low image distortion. Active glasses provide excellent visuals because they can accurately display full 1080p video.

    4k TVs: These are the newest and hottest TVs on the market. The change from standard TVs to high-definition TVs is similar to the change from high-definition TVs to 4K TVs. They are amazingly clear and bring even the smallest details to life, and are a perfect addition to a top-of-the-line entertainment system.

    Flat Screen TVs: Flat screen TVs are the standard today. Significantly lighter and thinner than earlier model televisions, the majority are LED LCD technology and high-definition. They’re great for watching with a lot of people as they have excellent viewing angles so you’ll never miss any of the action.

    Curved TVs: Curved TVs are a newer technology with amazing potential. These high-end television sets use curved screen to envelope you in the viewing experience to really make you feel like you are are part of the movie. Images have more depth and feel more lifelike when seen on a curved TV.

    Plasma TVs: Plasma TVs are excellent for basements and other low-light viewing situations. They produce amazingly accurate colors, are loved for their deep blacks, and provide a wide viewing area so lots of friends and family can gather to watch the big game or videos of your recent family trip. Because LED LCD has become the de-facto HD TV technology, plasma TVs still on the market can be found at great deals.

    1. Picture Quality: Picture quality is by far the most important determining factor in good TV reviews. 50” televisions that produce deep blacks, accurate colors, and have great viewing angles are beloved by owners, so make sure your set is known for its image quality.
    2. Ease of use: In today’s multi-device age, having a TV with intuitive menus and simple controls is key. Whether you’re changing channels, changing inputs, or adjusting the color, you’ll want a televisions that makes it simple and easy to do. TVs that have great menus and adjustability get great reviews from consumers.
    3. Connections: Between video games, laptops, DVD players, sound bars, and a whole host of other gadgets commonly plugged into televisions, it’s important that you have an appropriate number and types of ports in your television. Reviewers that checked this first are happy that they did.
    4. Lightweight: Whether you’re mounting it on the way or simply carrying it down the stairs to your basement room, having a lightweight TV will make setting up easier. In addition to initial setup, consumers love light TVs because it makes things easier on the chance that you move or need to rearrange your room
    • If you’re considering an LED LCD TV, pay attention to the Herz (Hz) of your potential set. Herz measures how many times per second the picture is refreshed, and the faster the speed, the less distortion you’ll experience. 120 Hz is standard, but if you are getting a 3D television you should opt for something even faster.
    • Sports enthusiast? If you'll be watching a lot of sports, plasma TVs, which smoothly display fast action, are a great choice. Be sure to buy from a top brand to ensure access to replacement parts in the future if needed.
    • If you’re a video gamer, consider a plasma TV to get the most out of your graphics. If you’re getting an LED TV but still want to game with the best of them, be sure to look for a set with a 120 Hz or higher refresh rate.
    • Picture quality is improved with higher contrast and deeper blacks. Be sure to check reviews for the black output of your television before buying to make sure you’re getting the most immersive and lifelike images you can.
    • Models vary in connection options, so be sure the 50” TV you get has enough connections for all your peripherals, such as blu-ray players, laptops, or gaming consoles. HDMI is the new standard, and at least 3 HDMI ports is recommended, but be sure you check your other peripherals and determine which connections they use so you can make sure your new TV will support them.
    • Your 50” TVs visuals are important, but so is the sound it produces. To ensure you’re watching movies and TV shows the way the makers intended, look for models with good sound quality. Or consider investing in a good sound bar to really enhance what you watch
    • Finally, how you’ll integrate your TV into your existing space is key. Style is important, but so are mounting options. Do you have an entertainment unit to load it into, or will you mount your TV on the wall as the centerpiece of your room? Maybe it will be on a TV stand? However you’ll display (or hide) your 50” TV, make sure it’ll look good in the space you’ll be using it.
