Pixel Me This

A lot of pixels means a high resolution. The resolution, more than the size of the screen, is the main reason when determining the quality of the picture. Although vertical refresh rate, type of backlighting and screen size does play a part in picture quality, as well.

Only the Smart
A Smart TV will always have some type of software in order to provide users access to apps and settings. This TV runs webOS 3.5 as the main interactive software.
