    Multiple Types of TVs to Choose From


    OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TVs offer a completely different technology than LED. Millions of independently controlled pixels that emit their own light provide higher contrast, perfect black, improved viewing angles, and greater color accuracy. OLED TVs are thinner and use less power than traditional backlit LED TVs. OLED TVs are perfect in darker rooms while watching fast moving action movies and sports. OLED technology is also great for gaming capable of 4K 120hz.


    Mini-Led is an evolution of LCD TV technology by using smaller (1/40th the size) LED's to illuminate the screen that provide finer control that improves aspects such as contrast (difference between dark and bright parts of an image), black levels and blooming. Mini-LED TVs can reach a higher peak brightness than an OLED TV.

    Quantum Dot/QLED TVs

    The Quantum Dot LED technology uses phosphorescent crystals for better backlighting conditions on LCD TVs. QLED displays offer rich colors in an affordable range. Higher range QLEDs are unaffected by burn-in and afterglows. QLED TV’s add a layer of red and green nanocrystals and generates a backlight that is brighter.

    TV LED

    Light Emitting Diode TVs offer outstanding picture quality and work well in virtually any lighting condition, even in very bright rooms. With extremely thin profiles, LED TVs can fit into almost any space without taking over your room's décor. If you are planning to host outside, an LED television may be the way to go for outdoor activities.

    TV LCD

    Liquid Crystal Display TVs are excellent for most viewing needs, especially in brighter rooms. LCD TVs are known for their vivid colors and superior HD performance. Tienen un perfil delgado y son, por lo general, muy accesibles.

    What is the Best TV Screen Size

    Cuando se trata de elegir el tamaño de la pantalla, no hay ninguna regla exacta. Todo depende del tamaño de la habitación, la distancia desde la que se mirará, el presupuesto y los hábitos de mirar televisión. Y con todas las diferentes tecnologías de TV disponibles, la resolución puede variar enormemente. Por lo que, sentarse a una distancia de cinco pies puede estar bien con un determinado TV, pero puede ser demasiado cerca para otro TV.

    Estas pautas generales, combinadas con tus preferencias personales, el tamaño de la habitación y la calidad del TV, pueden ayudar a delimitar tus opciones.

    Tamaño de pantalla Minimum Viewing
    Distance (feet)
    Maximum Viewing
    Distance (feet)
    43" 3.5' 5'
    50" 4' 6.5'
    55" 4.5' 7'
    65" 5.5' 8'
    70" 6' 9'
    75" 6.5' 9.5'
    85" 7' 10.5'

    Una de las cosas más importantes que debes hacer antes de salir a comprar un TV es medir el ancho y la altura del espacio donde colocarás el televisor. Puede parecer obvio, ¡pero te sorprendería saber cuánto gente omite este paso!

    When you're staring at that giant wall of TVs in the store, it can be tough to tell what size you need. Ten en cuenta que, en el caso de los TV, mientras más grande sea, por lo general resulta mejor. ¡Prácticamente nadie desea haberse comprado un TV más pequeño!

    TV Types Based on Screen Sizes

    Small TVs | 55” and smaller

    Small to mid-sized models are great for the bedroom, smaller living rooms, or anywhere you don't want the TV to overpower the room. Samsung's 43" UHD 4K Smart TV or 50" 4K UHD TV are great contenders in this category. From 32" to 55" Conn's offers a solution at affordable price points up to premium technology to maximize the use of a smaller living space.

    Large TVs | 65” – 75”

    We want to get lost in the picture when we go to the movies. Los TV grandes pueden crear esa experiencia de cine en casa y sumergirte en la acción. Choose between Samsung's 55" 4K UHD TV and LG's 55" OLED C1 Series 4K HDR TV for a better bargain.

    Ultra Large TVs | 85” and larger

    When you want to get completely immersed in a movie or the game, these are the TVs for you. Si tienes el espacio, un TV de pantalla grande te brinda una experiencia de visualización insuperable. Top-line TV manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Sony, and others have dominated the market with flagships in the 65", 75", and 85" screen sizes. Conn's has an extensive assortment of ultra large TV's to suit everyone's needs .

    Deciding on Your TV Resolution

    Screen resolution is a measure of the number of pixels on the screen. From 720p to 8K these numbers denote the number of horizontal lines of pixels the TV features. More pixels in a display equals more details, which equates to a better picture quality.

    TV Resolutions:

    • 8K - 7680 x 4320
    • 4K - 3840 x 2160
    • 1080p - 1920 x 1080
    • 720p - 1280 x 720

    The first number in a resolution refers to the number pixels horizontally, while the second number refers yo the number of pixels vertically.

    TV 8K

    Though the technology is still evolving, 8K TVs currently boast the best picture resolution on any TV display, at 7,680 X 4,320 pixels. Four times the resolution of 4K TVs, these TVs use the best image processors, highest HDR standards, and more. Try out Samsung’s promising Neo QLED model in 8K resolution.

    TV 4K

    Delivering up to four times the resolution of 1080p TVs,  4K TVs provide truly breathtaking picture quality. Also known as Ultra High Definition or Ultra HD TVs, these state-of-the-art TVs offer a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. Si te preocupa no tener demasiado contenido en ultra HD para mirar en tu TV 4K, ten en cuenta que cada vez se crea más y más contenido en 4K. Additionally, these TVs are programmed to recognize the format of your watching (live TV, streaming content, or a DVD or Blu-ray) and upscale the signal to fit the available pixels properly.

    HDR TV

    HDR es la sigla en inglés de "alto rango dinámico" y te brinda justamente imágenes más "dinámicas". HDR TVs display a broader and richer range of colors, much brighter whites and deeper, darker blacks. The extensive coverage allows for more natural, true-to-life colors closer to how we see them in real life.

    Full HD TV

    Full HD TVs are the standard for most TVs manufactured today. Un TV Full HD te brinda una resolución nítida y colores brillantes, lo cual te permite mirar casi todo tipo de contenido (películas, programas de TV, eventos deportivos, etc.) en su nivel de detalles tal como se previó.

    HD TV (720p)

    La resolución 720p, que suele encontrarse por lo general en televisores más pequeños, se traduce en 1280 píxeles de ancho por 720 píxeles de alto. Obtienes una imagen de calidad a un precio accesible.

    Everything You Need to Know about Refresh Rates

    ¿Qué es, entonces, la frecuencia de actualización? Es la frecuencia con la que una imagen se restaura a sí misma, o se "actualiza". The more often it's refreshed, the smoother and less blurry the image will be. Refresh rates are measured in hertz (Hz). So if a TV offers a 240Hz refresh rate, it will rebuild the picture 240 times per second. ¡Eso es una imagen muy nítida!

    • Un TV de 60Hz restaura la imagen 60 veces por segundo y brinda una buena nitidez en la mayor parte de la programación.
    • Un TV de 120Hz restaura la imagen 120 veces por segundo, por lo que la resolución es bastante nítida.
    • A 240Hz TV rebuilds the picture 240 times per second, providing the smoothest picture.

    The higher the refresh rate, the better the TV is for watching sports and action movies and playing games.

    Smart TV

    Un Smart TV es una mezcla de televisor y computadora que te brinda lo mejor en experiencia de visualización interactiva. With int  smart TVs can connect directly to your home network, allowing you to stream movies, shows, videos, and music. Many of these TVs also let you surf the web right from your TV, and you can share content with your tablet or smartphone to watch whenever and wherever you want. Some televisions even give you recommendations for movies and TV shows. You can choose between Samsung’s smaller 43” 4K UHD Smart TV and the larger 65” 4K UHD Smart TV.

    TV curvos

    ¿Quieres estar completamente sumergido en un programa? Then you want a TV that wraps the show around you! Curved TVs are just what they sound like: the screens are curved to provide the most immersive home viewing experience possible from multiple angles. La acción se desarrolla frente a ti y en tu visión periférica, de modo que obtienes un campo de visión más amplio, tu sentido de profundidad se agudiza y todo se siente más dimensional.

    Don't Forget the TV Accessories

    Cine en casa

    En esencia, si tienes un TV, tienes un cine en casa. But your TV is just the starting point of a theater experience.  Home theaters usually require a few add-ons to be genuinely “cinematic.” You’ll want an excellent audio receiver and a sound bar or speakers for incredible sound. You may even wanta Blu-ray or DVD player. The right cables are going to be vital to hooking it all together. Por último, querrás colocar todo en un centro de entretenimiento digno de tu obra maestra de cine en casa.

    Barras de sonido

    Once you’ve invested in a high-definition TV with all the bells and whistles, why settle for so-so sound coming from the built-in speakers? A sound bar delivers high-quality, stereo sound from one thin, sleek bar that can be mounted or placed under your TV.

    Reproductores de Blu-ray

    Blu-ray discs might look like DVDs, but they're pretty different. Blu-ray technology was designed for high-definition TVs and delivered five times the information carried by DVDs, along with a superior picture and sound quality. You'll need an HD TV with a Blu-ray player, ideally with at least 1080p resolution.

    Reproductores multimedia

    Nunca ha sido más fácil obtener entretenimiento a pedido. Dedicated streaming media players connect directly to your HD TV and provide access to thousands of TV episodes, movies, and more, allowing you to connect to a world of entertainment through apps like Amazon Video, Netflix, and Hulu.

    Soportes de pared para TV

    Of course, you can place your TV on a cabinet or TV stand. But with today’s slim profile TVs,  TV wall mounts are often a safer, sleeker, and more space-efficient solution. Wall mounts vary from fixed to flexible, so you can tilt them up or down and swivel them around.

    Cables HDMI

    Cables carry the audio and video information to your TV, so investing in quality cables is a good idea.  HDMI cables carry both picture and sound and are the best connection for HDMI-ready TVs, Blu-ray players, A/V receivers, gaming consoles, and more. Asegúrate de elegir un cable de alta velocidad para obtener una mejor calidad.

    Accessory Kits

    Maximize the performance and protect your TV purchase with an accessory kit from Conn's. All in one box we offer an HDMI cable , surge protection and clean and protect solution. Surge protectors provide advanced protection from frequent performance-degrading micro-spikes & catestrophic surges.

    TV Buying Guide FAQs

    Our TV buying guide also lists prominent questions by potential buyers globally.

    What qualities to look for when buying a TV?

    The seven most prominent features you should look for in a TV are:

    1. Connection ports: Your TV should have HDMI and other ports compatible with your existing devices.
    2. Screen Size: Choose 65” or larger screen sizes for better picture quality.
    3. Screen Resolution: Do not go lower than 4K resolution.
    4. HDR Compatibility: Your OLED, QLED, or LED TV should be HDR compatible for those high-resolution Netflix shows or gaming experiences.
    5. Refresh Rate: For a better cinematic experience, go for a 120 or 240 Hz refresh rate.
    6. Hybrid TV: Check whether your TV can switch between “Smart” and “Manual” modes.
    7. Wi-Fi Compatible: Your TV should be Wi-Fi enabled and streaming functions in-built. 

    Which is better – 4K, QLED, or OLED?

    OLED TVs tend to be better in picture quality and eye comfort than LED-backlit QLED screens or LCD screens. LCD and QLED screens produce blue light. 4K screen resolution can be an added advantage for both types of screens.

    Is QLED or OLED better for bright rooms?

    QLED TVs work best in bright rooms or outdoors as they generate the highest peak of brightness up to 2,000 nits. OLED screens can't create more than 500-600 nits. OLED TVs are best for low lighting conditions.

    What is the advantage of QLED over LED TV?

    Due to the added layer of particles in front of the LED panel, the QLED display emits more light. This ability allows it to create richer colors, greater depth, dynamic contrast ratio, and peak brightness. QLED TVs even work better in outdoor conditions.

    Which is better – Smart TV or Digital TV?

    Digital TVs leverage a regular TV's features to operate "smart" functions. On the other hand, a Smart TV is much more than an accumulation of apps. Better video processing capacity, more HDMI ports, better picture quality, and many other features make it a better option for TV buyers.
