To Frank Lautoir, Editor-in-Chief of the audio / video site, “The bigger the better!” “Thanks to hyper-defined LCD or OLED screens, this is the end of the story of the required distance between the viewer and the TV.” This is also the opportunity for the wall to shift.

100 Hz, otherwise nothing

If one has a game on the screen and a round ball (but also in video games), nothing beats a TV set with a 100 Hz panel. “This is an essential criterion,” said Gilles Gerrin, a journalist with the monthly magazine Laser years. Explanations: “This figure refers to the team’s ability to display 100 images per second. Since the viewed source is at 50 Hz, the 100 Hz TV set will double the refresh rate of the images. Warning: This is only valid for LCD TVs, as OLEDs permanently fix all issues with the updated panel. And Contradiction:

OLED, correct, yes but …

As we have seen, televisions You are No problem updating their panel or viewing the angle. On the other hand, their panel often has the effect of a mirror: you can see yourself inside! “Large OLED screen, dazzling. You need to find the best location where you can face the window, ”explains Frank Ladoir of In addition, these TVs are constantly plagued by minor branding issues, such as the ghost trail of the channel logo being watched for a long time and never fading.

“This phenomenon is constantly evolving,” notes the author of, “but we do not over-recommend OLED TVs Gamers : Video games are on the HDR, and they create very intense light points, which are complex ”.

Dolby Vision and Company?

Compatible TVs H.D.R. Dolby Vision is believed to provide increased image quality. But according to Frank Lodeauer, “it should be remembered that a television is more efficient than image processing, while HDR and Dolby Vision functions are less important”. Effect: If you buy a premium TV, its video processing will be very basic and you do not need to have these standards. According to the author of, “Dolby Vision is the most attractive of the HDR entry level and intermediate products. On premium TVs, this is much lower.
