There are so many TVs out there, you cannot even choose one. And with Black Friday coming up, it’s even harder. Many people rely on supermarket TVs, but are they worth it? You will find in supermarkets only specific types of TV brands. And when coming to the supermarket, people already have a price in their heads, and they know how much they’re going to spend in there. The TVs, be them LCD, QLED, or OLED, will be available via specialist retailers who know what they’re selling. So here we are, raising the question again: are they worth it?
So what kind of supermarket TVs are available?
Many budget TV makers have these retailers in mind – Target or Walmart or Tesco. The TV brands are Onn, Spectre, Logik, Blaupunkt, Polaroid, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You will also see names like Panasonic or Samsung, but they will cost more.
The TVs you will find in a supermarket are cheap, small, and you need to compromise.
They are cheap because they need to fit with the people that are coming to do shopping at the stores.
They are small because it’s easier to stock them into supermarkets, and they are also easier to fit in people’s cars.
You need to compromise because, in this case, you cannot have the best of both worlds. You either get a bottom-dollar tv with the essential HD resolution and limited smart TV interfaces, a TV that comes with premium factors at a lower price, such as HDR support and 4K resolution.
There are also exceptions: there can be larger sets available at a higher price, and that comes with fantastic performance.
So are these TVs worth it?
If you’re on a budget, you cannot afford the big things, so you can get a supermarket TV that doesn’t suck, and that also takes care of your money. But you need to keep in mind that you get what you paid for.
