Online televisions prices can range from as cheap as KSH 5,000 to as expensive as KSH 200,000. The most expensive TVs in the market today are OLEDs which can be quite expensive. They are pricier than most because you have to pay for the highest-picture quality in the market. The other type of Televisions are usually LED products that are able to mimic OLED quality televisions at half the price. The QLEDs and SUHD Tvs both deliver good quality colors almost as good as the OLED counterparts but cost much less than similarly shaped OLEDS in the high thousands. The QLEDS are usually the best sets especially on online television sets that offer discounts like Black Friday sales.

One of The most important thing to do is checking out a products review. When checking for reviews, be cautious, you have to make sure you are reading about the right model. If you want to buy, say a Samsung 55” class MU7500 curved 4K UHD TV, you wouldn’t want to unintentionally read a review for the 55” Class MU6500 curved 4K UHD TV. To minimize the risk, at least copy paste the full name of a product on your browser search engine.
You should also make it a habit to read customer reviews from all the major retailers online. There may be quite a lot but make a point of reading the most recent reviews rather than the “best” or top rated ones. This will ensure that you as a customer get a more representative sample of customers and that you are getting a good perspective on the most current TV softwares in the market today. These reviews can also help you understand what distinguishes the technology on your Television from other products and whether they are worth their features.
