The Lingo to Know for Picking a New Samsung Smart TV With a 65-Inch Screen

When youre looking for crisp clarity and vibrant colors on a screen you can see from the kitchen, an affordable 65-inch Samsung provides the wide-angle viewing experience you desire. You can almost smell the realistic ocean as you immerse yourself in your favorite nature documentary on one of these big screens. However, you should know some important lingo before selecting an affordable Samsung Smart TV from eBay.

How is QLED technology different from LED?

QLED or Quantum dot LED TVs emit more brightness than standard LED screens by using quantum dots to refine light and add color volume. In terms of real-life performance, this causes colors to be brighter and more intense while enhancing contrast by creating a darker black. The extra brightness also makes the 65-inch Samsung Smart TVs that use this technology ideal for rooms with a lot of ambient light that make viewing dimmer screens difficult.

What is the difference between 1080p and 4K?

The terminology used to describe the resolution of Samsung smart TVs that are 65 inches can be a bit confusing. Here are the definitions for these common terms:

  • 1080p: Also known as "HD, Full HD, FHD, and High Definition," 1080p refers to a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This has considerably fewer pixels than 4k, although you will still find this resolution on some Samsung 65-inch LED smart TV models.
  • 4K: This, in a technical sense, refers to a horizontal resolution of 4,096 pixels. Excluding DCI 4K used for projectors at 4096 x 2160 pixels, this term usually equates to a standard screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels on Samsung 65 inch TVs with 4k, which is also the resolution described as "4K UHD."
What does UHD and HDR mean?

When searching for new or pre-owned Samsung 65-inch TVs on eBay, here are two more words you are likely to see:

  • UHD: Also referenced as "Ultra HD and Ultra-High Definition," UHD refers to a maximum screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. 4K UHD denotes the standard screen resolution for televisions, such as the Samsung 65 inch TV MU8000 model. The DCI 4K term references the resolution used in projectors.
  • HDR: High Dynamic Range provides enhanced contrast between the darkest black and brightest white pixels. This allows for a wider range of color shades to be displayed and causes images on the screen to appear more defined and closer to real-world color. This technology is available on traditional flat and curved screens, including Samsung 65-inch TVs with curved screens.
