What is the best TV in Australia? There are countless ways to determine this and even more criteria you could consider. The options are enormous. So too are today’s TVs, topping out at a massive 98” Samsung QLED screen. So, let’s get to it.
Best picture quality TVs in 2021
LG has a range of OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) TVs which produce vibrant colours and great picture quality with High Dynamic Range. Because the pixels only light up when required, the colours jump from a black background for sharper contrasts, crisper whites and darker blacks.
The Bravia range features a Pixel Control Booster for sharper image definition and a subwoofer for richer, cinematic sound quality. The Bravia TVs are smart as well, with Google Assistance or Alexa voice-command and a microphone status light on the TV remote.
Samsung delivers an outstanding QLED (Quantum Light-Emitting Diode) range of TVs, creating vibrant colours through effervescent nano-particles known as quantum dots. While the remote control unit may seem minimalist, it’s user-friendly and fits easily in your hand.
The Panasonic OLED range offers brilliant picture clarity thanks to its 4K HDR technology. 4K means lots more pixels—four times as many as older HDTVs. These TVs have ultra-sophisticated Dolby Atmos sound technology built-in, so you won’t need a soundbar.
Best lower-cost HDTVs
Hisense HDTVs deliver great bang for the buck with impressive 4K picture quality and great sound delivery. Hisense Ultra Light-Emitting Diode (ULED) technology projects rich colours and sharp definition and these TVs easily link to apps and other viewing platforms.
TCL is not a well-known brand in Australia. Then again, packed with 4K HDR picture quality, TCL is hard to overlook. One great feature is TCL’s Go Live which streams all your favourite free-to-air TV channels through your wi-fi.
Not to be confused with Sony, Soniq TVs offer features ranging from UHD screen resolution to Android TV and Google Assistance. Soniq also offers Ultra HD with 4K vision enhanced by High Dynamic Range technology that generates superb contrasts and rich colours.
The Hitachi range includes Android TV connectivity and HDR10, the industry standard for High Dynamic Rage streaming, plus QLED screen resolution. These TVs make surfing the web easier as well, so you can keep up to date on your social media between your favourite TV shows.
It’s hard to believe that a 23-inch black and white television set in 1960 cost $6,000 in today’s dollars—nowadays you can treat yourself to an 86-inch smart TV for around half that price. With the arrival of 8K technology, we are being amazed yet again by the advances we’re seeing in home entertainment technology.
That’s why you should take all the time you need to fully consider what you’re looking for in a TV. Smart technology, cinematic enchantment, games compatibility…the best TV is the one that’s best for you. You can find it here on Gumtree Australia.
