Is bigger always better? In the case of televisions, there are enormous benefits in a larger screen. If you have the space, paying a bit more for those extra inches is worth it – super-sized TVs offer higher resolutions, a cinematic atmosphere, clearer details and a richer viewing experience. But what sets one TV apart from the next? We asked experts to help you pick the best 75-inch screen.
With these inches, you could shell out over Dh10,000 for a high-performing model, but second-tier brands offer great deals, too. According to Avais Aslam, owner of Abu Dhabi-based Avais Electronics, with 16 years of TV servicing experience, a large screen investment is worth it when the family is made up of sports and gaming enthusiasts who prefer an all-immersive view. "Especially with sports games, like the FIFA World Cup, people look for huge displays to catch the live matches on," said Aslam.
Which 75-inch TV is the best for me?
The casual TV consumer will come across terminologies like OLED and QLED displays in their search. Essentially, an OLED panel (organic light-emitting diode) has pixels that emit light on their own, without the help of a backlight. As a result, you're getting deeper blacks and excellent contrast when gaming.
Conversely, the QLED (quantum dot light emitting diode) panel uses a filter made of tiny dots against a backlight to produce accurate colours, no matter the brightness level. Both technologies deliver stunning picture quality, so there's little to no difference to the typical viewer, says Aslam. "OLED and QLED TVs can be expensive; a decent alternative that's far more accessible is a UHD (ultra-high definition) LED TV," he added.
It'd also be worthwhile to bring home an Android smart television. TVs with Android software function a lot like our Android smartphones, complete with Google Play Store for unrestricted downloads. For a family that has varying tastes, a television with a colourful library of apps would be far more fitting. Even if you end up opting for a different operating software, you could connect an Android TV box to expand your options.
Based on repair frequencies, display technology and operating software, we curated a list of the best 75-inch TVs you can buy in 2023. Just to give you a preview, Aslam says you should be primarily looking into Samsung, LG and Sony, followed by Hisense or TCL. Browse the pros and cons below, peppered with more expert comments.
