Features to consider when looking for a Black Friday 85 inch TV deal

There are a few things to look at when deciding on an 85 inch TV. Their importance is paramount, especially with the usual price tags. They are: resolutionrefresh rate, and panel type.

Resolution: If you’re going to be watching something that spans 85″, you’ll definitely see a marked difference when choosing 4K and above. Not only this, but for 85 inch TVs, this is the standard for gaming and video now. You will be met with a beautiful screen quality and a huge range of colours.

Refresh rate: If you’re looking for a gaming TV, say for your PS5 or Xbox Series X/S, you’ll want a TV that can operate at at least 120Hz. This is essential for Next Generation Gaming, however a TV at 60Hz will work perfectly if you only plan for home cinema use.

Panel type: There are a few standard panel types – LCD, LED. OLED, or QLED. It is recommended that you look for a TV with an OLED or QLED panel, as these offer the best color vibrancy and gamut, pixel density, and deepest blacks. Not only this, but looking at such a wide screen will certainly be an intense experience on the eyes, so going for an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) screen will certainly be better for your eyes.
