How to choose the best TV for under $500?

When looking for the best TV for under 500 dollars, there are several factors you need to take into consideration.

The first thing you need to decide is whether you want a flat panel television or a traditional tube-based display. Flat panels are usually lighter and thinner but they lack the rich details offered by tubes. However, flat panels are easier to maintain and operate. If you plan on using your television mainly for viewing videos, a flat panel is a way to go.

You also need to think about the size of the screen because this will determine the kind of content you can view comfortably. You may require an extra-large screen if you like to stream lots of video at once. A smaller screen could work fine if you mostly use it for browsing the web and watching short clips.

Another important factor to consider is the resolution. Most of today’s new TVs have a resolution higher than 1080p. So you shouldn’t worry too much about getting a lower resolution setting.

Finally, you need to check out the features included in the TV. Some of these include HDMI ports, USB ports, Wi-Fi, etc. Look for a feature set that meets your needs. For example, if you want to connect your smartphone to the TV, look for a model that has an app store.

In conclusion, when choosing a TV for a price range under 500 dollars, be sure to pay attention to the above-mentioned factors. Once you know what you want, you can narrow down your search until you find the right model.
