Nobody wants to drop top dollar on a new TV only to find their favorite shows look and sound better on another model – like the one your neighbor just bought. There are more options than ever before, but picking the right options for your family can be overwhelming! Check out our comparisons of a few top Smart TVs to help in your decision making process.
The Samsung 75″ MU9000 4K UHD TV
Do you dread watching darkly-lit scenes that make it hard to tell what’s going on? Perhaps this Samsung will save you the stress. The MU9000’s Triple Black Extreme feature brings out fine details in dark rooms and night scenes so you can see what you’ve been missing.
If you love fast moving sports and high action blockbusters, Samsung’s Motion Rate 240 keeps rapid motion believable as it accelerates across the screen. This TV also comes with access to the apps and popular streaming content channels you’ve come to expect.
Samsung brags a 4K Color Drive Extreme feature with “a billion more shades than standard 4K.” Unfortunately, those shades live in a slighter range of colors than you will find on other TVs. Image integrity diminishes at different viewing angles.
The LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV – 75″ Class
The LG automatically and dynamically enhances video content from one scene to the next using Active HDR with Dolby Vision to achieve the most genuine images, frame to frame. This smart TV fills 8 million pixels with 4K resolution and supports high quality viewing from different angles. The Ultra Luminance feature provides adjustments in brightness as your TV program progresses.
The 4K Upscaler feature brings standard content close to 4K in quality and presentation. Using WebOS 3.5 technology, the SUPER UHD brings you streaming sound and movies and internet games with smooth and coherent precision. Share content from your smart devices to the TV screen using Screen Share technology. Some consumer feedback mentions that color depth is lacking on this LG model.
The Sony A1E OLED 4K Ultra HD High Dynamic Range (HDR) Smart TV (Android TV)
This 77” Smart TV offers 8 million pixels and an OLED screen (the state-of-the-art in screen technology) for a responsive picture. The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme chip increases real-time image processing by 40 percent over the previous 4K Processor X1 chip; the new technology renders each frame with lifelike accuracy.
The Triluminous display uses a broader color map to ensure the most natural color representation. 4K X-Reality Pro picture processing analyzes aspects of each scene, matching them with images in a database to deliver the right texture and contrast to each pixel. The Acoustic Surface sound technology delivers sound from the TV screen by vibrating it from behind.
Disappointingly, the A1E lacks the brightness of other TVs in its class and is prone to intermittent audio contortions. The hefty price tag magnifies these concerns.
Seeing is relieving! Watch the shelves full of display model TVs running at electronics stores in your area, then order your favorite TV with peace of mind.
