Buying advice 2022: TVs with UHD and smart functions

Bargains are possible with TVs with LC as well as OLED technology, even if you insist on UHD and Smart TV functions.

With a screen diagonal of 43 inches (109 centimeters) and a price from 330 euros, you can now get a UHD television with 3840 x 2160 pixels and LED backlight. Even in this class, the devices can be integrated into the home network via WLAN and equipped with smart TV functions – such as the

Toshiba 43LL3C63DA


50, 55, 65 inches – ideal sizes for the living room

For most living rooms in this country, a UHD television from 50 inches diagonal (127 centimeters) to 65 inches (165 centimeters) is completely sufficient. Here you benefit from a large picture and you don’t see any pixels even if you choose the seat spacing significantly less than with a full HD television. For new TV purchases with LED backlights in the popular 55-inch class (139 centimeters), there are a number of models below or just over 500 euros – such as the

TCL 55C715

. They often come from the previous year, but as in the case of the TCL even offer a Qled panel with quantum dots, as you know it from Samsung. The package includes the HDR standards HLG, HDR10, HDR10 + and even Dolby Vision. In this class, on the other hand, there is often a problem with the processor – picture jerks and sluggish smart TVs are the result.

That improves if you invest around 200 euros more for your UHD TV – for example in the

Sony Bravia KD-55X80J


Samsung GU55AU7179

. However, you cannot avoid compromises here either, because the Sony model only has a 50, not 60 Hertz refresh rate. The aforementioned Samsung TV, on the other hand, has neither Dolby Vision nor a USB recording function.

When it comes to a great black level, there is still no way around a 4K OLED television. LG remains the main supplier of the panels. He also sets the cheapest price points. How to pay for a cutting-edge 55-inch model with 100 Hertz panel and HDMI 2.1 connection like the

LG Oled 55C17LB

reasonably moderate 1200 euros.
