The Best 32 Inch LED TV 1080p

Before jumping onto the best 32 inch LED TV, I would like to share some important points that you should take care of while buying a new 32 inch TV.

Screen Resolution:

Since it is a 32 inch TV, you are not going to get 4K resolution therefore. So, don’t expect that unless until you are looking for expensive models but nevertheless, 32 inch LEDs still offer HD resolution.

Refresh Rate:

Refresh rate is measured in hertz and it is actually the screen refresh frequency. The faster refresh rate is better than a slower refresh rate.

For example, if you are watching a soccer match, the faster refresh rate would produce better performance for fast moving objects.

Smart TV:

The advantage of buying a small TV such as 32 inch is that it comes with all Smart TV features including Wi-Fi and other functions that any other larger screens possess.

Contrast Levels: 

For 32 inch LED TVs, you should not be sitting closer to the screen than normal or else you are going to notice problems. The difference between whites and blacks should be as clear as possible.

Contrast is measured in a ratio and a measurement of 3000:1 or higher is a good performance level.

1080p HD: 

Because of smaller screen size of 32 inch LED TV, you might not observe any noticeable difference between 720p and 1080p HD resolution.

For the same reason, 720p HD 32 inch TVs are also equally attractive when compared with 1080p HD screens. Some 720p HD TVs are also able to upscale to simulate 1080p among which TCL models are quite popular.

  1. Great review!!

    Me and my wife are currently looking for a mid size tv for the bedroom, this may be exactly what we are looking for!!

    The specs are actually still pretty impressive, even for a smaller screen size. I am going to send this to her and cross my fingers, thank you!!

  2. I have somethings to add to your reviews

    2017 UHD /4K is a minimum requirement. HD TVs will be outdated in near future so not an option
    I own a 7th series UHD Samsung Curved smart TV but it falls short for the Apps availability
    Also the RAM and storage of smart TVs mostly do not suffice and you have to rely on the use of external TV streaming devices.Of all the options which I have read about Nvidia Shield is best (expensive though but throws in games)
    Some smart TVs like TCL are coming into the market with built in Roku so you have to take in to consideration the live streaming factor
    Smart TVs with improvement in screen and the slimmer they get have gotten poor as for as the sound is concerned.
    So another factor on quantifying TV selection should be sound quality.

  3. Hi, I’m searching for a 32” or similar size screen, rechargable battery driven, with wifi connectivity and Bluetooth. Mainly to watch sports events. Right now I’m using my ipad, what is small in size. As I hardly watch usual TV, apart for news and I’m tired of cables all over the place. Is something like this available?
    Kind regards
    Kersten
