September 24, 2013

in 30 to 39 LED TV sets

The Samsung UN29F4000 29-Inch LED HDTV a great LED HDTV for anyone looking for a smaller TV for a small space e.g. bed room, kitchen etc.. It’s great on energy consumption (estimated yearly energy costs are only $6/year) and light weight at just over 10 pounds. However, there are 2 concerns.

  1. It’s HD, but it’s only 720p and not 1080p – is that a problem? As we always say, generally, for smaller TVs 720p works fine. If it was a 55″ TV, we wouldn’t recommend 720p. Then again, it all depends on the viewing distance.
  2. Its refresh rate is only 60 Hz when the modern TVs have 120 Hz or even 240 Hz refresh rates. Again, the same concept applies. 60Hz is fine for smaller TVs (<32″). But if it was a 47″ TV, we would encourage you to go for at least 120 Hz.

If 720p and 60Hz bug you, we highly recommend the this Samsung 1080p 120 Hz LED TV, but it’s obviously more expensive than the Samsung UN29F4000 720p 60 Hz LED TV
