28 Inch LED TV
LED TV is the most commonly used display as of right now because of its lower power consumption and viewing advantages.
Back in 2013 LCD used to be the king of display technology, well in a sense it still is because LED is just an upgrade and not a brand new product.
LED TV is just an LCD (liquid crystal display panel) with an LED (light-emitting diodes) backlight instead of a cathode backlight which is used in an LCD TV.
One of the drawbacks of LCD is that it can never produce true blacks as the screen should be completely opaque or solid in order to get a true rich deep black.
LED gives you a couple of advantages over LCD’s, it has the thinner form factor, lower power consumption and with high end LED arrays.
Full Array LED supports micro dimming feature where the LED arrays are divided in zones which helps in dimming the illumination of the specific zone to make the blacks much truer and much richer.
As there are different types of 28 inch LED TV offered at various prices and features we will provide you with the information necessary, in order to make your buying experience completely hassle-free.

Types of LED TV’s based on Resolution
The resolution of a digital television is the number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It can be described as width by height with units being measured in pixels.
For example, 1920×1080 would mean a width of 1920 pixels and a height of 1080 pixels.
Resolution in very simple terms means how finely an image can be resolved.
Below are the most commonly used display resolution’s. There are lower resolutions but you wont find any TV’s with resolution lower than 720p and even if you do it’s not worth buying as it doesn’t give you good picture quality.
1280x720p and 1920x1080p (Full HD) TV’s
These are the most commonly used and the most basic resolution for an LED TV as of right now. If you are on a budget these are the ones to look into as they are pretty good. Also, most of the content right now is still 1080p so it make sense to buy it.
720p and 1080p are pretty close in terms of picture quality.
In India, we don’t have all sources that are 720p or 1080p still most of the television channels are transmitted at 480p which is a lower resolution (standard television).
4K UHD TV’s
4k is four times the resolution of 1080p.
However, today we don’t have a lot of native 4k content so what the TV will do is scale the 1080p content by 4 times to fill in the picture and be visible on a 4k television.
Of course, this will look pretty good but anything lower than 720p will look soft and terrible.
These are pretty expensive but brings a big change in the picture quality such that it’s almost breathtaking.
HDR (high dynamic range) this technique attempts to make the image on your TV look truer to life.
It reveals more details in the shadowy areas of an image and in blown-out bright areas by exposing the image multiples times to compensate for the limited dynamic range.
These are the best type of TV that you can get in terms of picture quality but the content is very limited and you need a Blu-ray player along with the display in order to play HDR content.
LED TV Buyers Guide
In this guide, we are going to give you all the tools you need to consider while buying a 28 inches LED TV.
HD TV or 1080p Full HD TV used to be the king of the hill when it came to screen resolution but that’s no longer the case.
4K UHD which is four times the resolution of 1080p is now the new standard internationally and 1080p is on the way out. 4k delivers a much sharper image than HD at larger screen sizes and it lets you see all the tiny details in a picture where everything looks crisper.
HDR can make a huge difference in picture quality but it’s only available in newer 4k TV’s.
The combination of 4k and HDR delivers an amazing lifelike picture. With HDR you get much better contrast and even finer color shades.
The refresh rate is the No of times per second (measured in hertz) that your display will update with new information.
The benefits are really simple for choosing a high refresh rate TV. A 60-hertz refresh rate display will provide you more information per second than that of a 30-hertz TV resulting in a smoother moving image.
Input and output ports
TV’s have lots of input and output ports. HDMI is the standard way of connecting a source to a TV.
If you are going to use a soundbar or an AV receiver with your TV make sure it supports HDMI ARC. HDMI ARC is a simple way to pass audio back and forth between your TV and your speaker system.
There are three main differences when you use a curved TV instead of a normal flat TV: Immersion, distortion, and glare.
Distortion and glare are naturally what people are concerned about when you curve a giant TV display, the bottom line is that glare isn’t more of a problem than it is on a normal flat TV but distortion can get a little bit weird if you are looking at the TV from a weird angle.
If you want more immersive experience watching your favorite shows you should get a curved TV.

There are barely 10 good products which you can buy online and all of them are on the list so you can choose from. I would personally recommend the Sony Bravia KLV because it is much balanced in terms of price and features with great built quality and stunning looks.
Samsung 28J is also a great choice if you want more picture quality. It has the best screen technology among others.
The LG 28LH is best suited for bass lovers but be warned the service record for LG is very poor so please make sure you purchase the product from a great reputed dealer.
