There’s nothing more annoying than sitting down on Sunday afternoon to watch a football game and realizing that all you can see is the glare from the sun coming through your windows. You could purchase shades or blinds, but who really wants to sit in the dark anyway?
Before you purchase a new TV, make sure you take the environment into consideration. Some TVs are much better than others for bright environments, like the Samsung Q80 series, which comes in sizes from 55” to 82”. The Samsung Q80, Q90, and Q900 series TVs have a special triple-layer screen technology that significantly cuts down on reflections and glare. As an added benefit, that same glare-reducing screen also greatly enhances black levels and off-angle viewing.
A large screen TV is an investment and the last thing you want to do is spend all that money and then not be happy with your purchase. If possible, you should find a local retailer that has the TVs setup side-by-side for easy comparison. If the TVs are setup in a dark area, ask the sales associate to turn the lights on. If they can’t or won’t, go to another store to shop. Next, ask the sales associate to turn the TVs off, as it is easiest to see how a screen reflects when there isn’t an image on it. Now you should be able to have a good idea of how the screens handle reflections.
Reflections and glare aren’t the only consideration. Image brightness is also important. LED TVs in general are pretty bright, but nothing beats a Samsung QLED TV for producing the brightest image that can power through even the brightest room environments.
