3 Ways to Save Money on Your 4K TV

Posted: April 28, 2017 in Buyer's Guide

The hottest television craze today is the high-tech Ultra-HD or Ultra-High Definition TV aptly named 4K TV. It has an ability to display four times more vivid images (8 million pixels) than its standard HD TV forerunner at 3840 x 2160 screen resolution. This is not just an ordinary feat because most TV sets today still has the mainstream 1920 x 1080 pixel screen resolutions. True-blooded HD TV users really know how clear that difference is.

Now, the real challenge for 4K TV fanatics out there is how to get their money’s worth out of it. You can easily be left wading in the ocean of 4K TV products in the market right now, let alone decide what to buy amidst a sea of promises their manufacturers have to say about them. When you plan to buy the most reasonable TV set for yourself, you have to consider many things first hand.

We all know that when a new technology invades the market, it carries with it a sky-high price tag. But it does not mean that you cannot get what you really want anymore just because of the figures attached to them.

Before hitting the “Add to Cart” button from your favorite online retailer store or before plucking out one of your many plastics in your wallet, do your assignment first. I bet you also don’t want to regret what you get at the end of the day, aren’t you?

So, here are the three most important things you should consider to save the most greens from buying a 4K TV as possible.

First, you have to understand that 4K TVs are designed to have a crisper or more vivid display than its older standard HD TV cousins. Don’t settle for a 4K TV without a HDR stamped to it. HDR or High-Dynamic Range ensures you that your new TV set really has the capacity to display the resolution of a 4K TV. Be warned that many TVs labeled as 4K TV don’t really meet the minimum requirements set by the association formed by TV manufacturers. Falling into this sweet sugar-coated marketing trick will leave you paying more than what you are really getting.

Second, after getting a little techie with it, don’t jump for it right away. The best time to buy your dream 4K TV is during special occasions, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas season, and summer holidays. Almost all major electronic retail stores offer big, big discounts during these times. Wait for these kinds of opportunities to arrive. This is to avoid blaming yourself for buying the same 4K TV set 25% higher because you bought it a day before the intended mark down period.

Lastly, there are big TV manufacturers out there that don’t give a crap about what is inside their 4K TV sets. You can find one feature on this brand not present on the other. Yet the latter is pricier than the former just because it has a famous brand attached to it. Don’t get yourself stuck on the ever-escalating brand war. It won’t hurt you if you settle for a lesser-known brand with a lower price tag but has all the minimum requirements of a 4K TV for optimum performance than paying for a set that only sells its brand name actually.

With your little buying assignment done, you can now put your mind at ease. Just wait for the right moment to arrive.
