It’s always advisable to go for the best TV brands in Kenya when you need a quality TV. Of course, the worst brands would lower prices to woo you but you’ll regret if you don’t choose high quality television.
When buying a TV, these are the factors to consider:
- Quality of the pictures
The picture quality should be high such that when you are watching from a distance of 30 meters, you can clearly see every happening in the TV. Blurred images affect user experience and it’s what high quality TVs try to avoid.
Don’t go for something too cheap or too expensive. You should always remember that cheap is expensive and when the deal is too sweet, think twice. If someone is selling a 32-inch television for Ksh8,000, you should ask yourself several questions before buying the same—you might reach home and find that it’s just an empty box you are carrying to your house.
The fair price for a 32-inch TV is Ksh13,000 to Ksh25,000.
- The size of a television
If you are buying a TV for the family, go for one of 32 inch and above. The bigger the size, the better the experience.
- Where you buy the TV from
There are places known for selling high quality televisions, like supermarkets, online shops like Jumia and at Luthuli Avenue. Before purchasing one, you should ask some of your friends where they bought theirs from. Some shops sell already used televisions which they claim are brand new, when you take them home, they don’t last months before developing issues.
If you decide to buy online, I would comfortably refer you to Jumia where I always buy my TV.To check the list of available TVs,click on this link
- Type of TV
There are three main types of TV, analog, Digital and Smart TV. Analog is the worst television to own in Kenya—don’t buy it.If you are not interested in internet, buy a digital TV but if you would like to stream videos online through a TV,buy a smart TV.Smart televisions are the best because they can be connected with the internet.4K TV are also available in Kenya but they aren’t cheap. You can also buy a curved TV but they aren’t better than smart TV, it’s only that they look classy.
- Sale Warranty
Sale warranty is important too. Before you buy a television from any company, ask them whether they issue a sale warranty. This paper enables you to return the TV to the seller in case you find it faulty.
- Durability of the TV
Each company uses its own materials to manufacture televisions, it’s the type of material used that determine the quality of a TV. In most cases, cheap televisions are manufactured by cheap materials, meaning that they won’t last longsome brands, like Sony, are known for producing high quality TVs.
- Whether it’s a brand new or second hand
If you prefer second hand TV, it means that you compromise on quality. The reason a TV is second hand is because the owner found something faulty in it or he had used it enough times to the point of replacing it.
Having said that, these are the best TV brands to buy in Kenya:
Sony is so far the best TV brand to buy in Kenya. At least half of the middle income households own this brand. One thing you’ll love about Sony is the quality of images displayed on the screen.
