What to look for when choosing a Samsung TV with a 32-inch screen
The parameters of the TVs are actually not so many. And almost everyone is in sight. That is, in principle, you can determine whether the TV is suitable for specific tasks quickly enough. Let’s see what to pay attention to when choosing.
Screen resolution and refresh rate
The screen resolution is usually indicated by two numbers that indicate the number of pixels horizontally and vertically. For 32-inch TVs, HD-1280×720 and FullHD-1920×1080 are relevant. Of course, the second option will give a clearer picture if there is relevant content.
As for the refresh rate, everything is a bit confusing. Manufacturers can specify such fantastic numbers as this parameter: 200, 600, 1200 Hz. But it is nothing more than a marketing move. In fact, the maximum number of frames of any content for today is 60 frames per second. On average, 50 is used is the television standard. Manufacturers really had to increase the frequency, but at most twice. This is done so that on large diagonals the change of frames was not noticeable, when The Matrix did not have time to switch from color to black and, on the contrary, there was a flicker. To do this, an additional frame is often used, which makes dynamic scenes smoother and hides the transition between the two main frames.
Color gamut and sound quality
Color reproduction as such is usually not specified in the specifications of televisions. But it can be defined by the type of array used. Now you can find three types on the market: most often it is IPS, a little less − TN and, in general, rare − *VA. The first has excellent viewing angles and color reproduction, but it is more expensive and has an excellent response time. TN is inexpensive and fast, but the corners leave much to be desired, as well as the quality of black and the color gamut in general. * VA is the midpoint between TN and IPS, but it is used very rarely on home TVs. The optimal solution for the House will still be IPS.
As for the sound quality, here everything is very relative. Connoisseurs of quality sound in any case will use external equipment such as a home theater or simply a set of speakers. Those for whom the sound is far from being in the first place, it is enough what broadcasts television by regular means.
You should pay attention to the interfaces if you plan to use the TV, as well as watch TV programs. For example, connection to the PC, network and other things. For PC, HDMI works perfectly, as it can also transmit sound.
For wired connection to the network, you need an RJ-45 connector, and for wireless connection — Wi-Fi. If you need to connect the old types of equipment, you need to pay attention to the presence of component or composite connectors and SCART.
Other features include various services. For example, the number of USB connectors, and the presence of a built-in hard disk, support for the standard of signal processing, the number of supported video formats, picture-in-picture and other pleasant things that do not affect the overall quality of the tv, but it makes the use more convenient and pleasant.
The Smart TV function occurs on a 32-inch Samsung TV
Such models exist. Although there are not many of them. On TVs Samsung Smart TV is usually represented by the Tizen platform. It is an open operating system in the Linux kernel, developed by Samsung and Intel. By the way, Tizen works not only with smart TVs, but also with smartphones, smart watches, cameras and tablets. The latest current version of Tizen is 4.0.
