With the rise of smart TVs, the diagonal of the screens has grown exponentially year after year. Today, the standard in size is well above the 42 inches that five years ago were established in the market. It is a fact, most brands have models of 50 and even 65 inches. The good news is that the price of the latter has been reduced to more affordable values. Proof of this is this compilation of 65-inch televisions that we have made with models below 700 euros.
We explain what each technology of the teles means: OLED, Quantum Dots, NanoCell, HDR10 +

TCL bets on a model with similar characteristics to that of Samsung, with a 65-inch panel with LED technology, 4K resolution and HDR support. Beyond the technical differences between models, which are certainly few, the TCL model is characterized by having Android TV, something that is becoming less frequent due to the integration of proprietary systems.

We can also opt for store collection if we prefer to save costs and we have a store near our home.

Panasonic’s commitment comes with features, on paper, quite similar to other models: 4K, HDR10 and a 20W sound system. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this model is the presence of Adaptive Backlight Dimming technology, a technology that, according to its own brand, will provide us with images of high sharpness, clarity and richness of nuances.
What this technology does is combine different images with different contrasts to improve the brightness of dark areas and thus provide a more extensive dynamic range and a result that tries to imitate displays with OLED technology.

One of the cheapest options that we can find on the market today. Its price is 499 euros in PC components, with associated shipping costs of 13.50 euros, according to the company’s website.
Despite its low price, the truth is that the Hisense television has nothing to envy the rest of the alternatives. In fact, the TV has a 4K resolution LED panel and HDR support. As if this were not enough, it is Compatible with Dolby Digital Plus certification and even has three HDMI ports. Of course, the built-in sound system has a maximum power of 10 W, half that of other televisions. To this we must add that it does not have a Bluetooth connection, so we will not be able to connect wireless audio devices. In this aspect, we will have to opt for cable sound systems, since the television has an optical output.
It should be noted that the television has the energy certification A, instead of the A + certification of the other proposals. In practice, energy consumption is somewhat higher.

As if this were not enough, the maximum brightness offered by the panel is no less than 350 nits, a figure quite far from the 280 nits that we can find in the rest of televisions. To this we must add the presence of four HDMI 2.0 ports. Yes, you read it right. Four ports.
