Updated: The 2013 TVs will arrive in April and May and retailers are starting to clear out inventories of 2012 TVs. This means that you can save big money on the 2012 models – if you are quick. FlatpanelsHD has found some of the biggest savings on popular TVs.
The TV industry is already pushing for Ultra HD / 4K, which is the next step after Full HD. But what does it actually mean for our TVs, media boxes, movies & games? We explain why Ultra HD is important and why there is much more to it than just higher resolution.
Samsung will release new LED and plasma TVs, as well as its first Ultra HD TVs. Samsung’s OLED-TV could be released in 2013. 2013 is all about Smart TV and new smarter features but Samsung also promises improvements to picture quality.
LG has a massive line-up of TVs in 2013. The Smart TV features will be expanded to even more TVs and LG will release its first OLED and Ultra HD TVs, along with new LED and plasma TVs. Some of the new Smart TV features include Miracast and NFC.
Im currently looking at two LED TVs. The first model is the Sony 40EX720 and the second model is the Samsung 406530. Mostly TV will be used to watch Bluray movies and play games on Xbox 360. I need of your exper device. Which is beter and which suggest?
The two TVs are not that different and based on the same LCD panel technology. The Smart TV features are bad in both. Samsung's 3D implementation is slightly better and picture characteristics are not that different. I think it largely comes down to what compromises you can live with.
Are you 100 % set on one of these two TVs? Have you considered Panasonic GT30 or G30 for example?
I also looked at the G30. It is better than samsung and sony in picture quality (3D, HD)? In the other direction I looked the GT30 but in Europe it costs about 1200â‚¬, Samsung and Sony 700â‚¬. Which suggest?
The G30 does not support 3D but in my opinion it is better in terms of picture quality, yes. But you obviously need to consider that the plasma technology has some other pros and cons that the LCD technology.
If you are not planning on using 3D, I would recommend G30. I'm not sure if Panasonic has a G50 lined up for 2012 but we will know more after February 21 when Panasonic announced their European line-up.
