This is update #7 in our weekly series of new features and improvements.
This tool lets you create your custom rating, based on the aspects you care about.
The first step is to select how much light you have in your room, and at which angle your seating positions are located.
This will change the weights of the peak brightness, contrast ratio, local dimming and viewing angle in the formula. You can see all the exact weights generated in the 'Your Custom Rating' section.
The second step is to specify what proportion of your time will be spent watching what kind of content. For example, increasing 'Video Games' will increase the weight of the input lag measurement, among other things.
If you want, you can add any of our measurements in the formula. This can get complex, so we recommend that you stick to the usages only and not the individual tests unless you know what you are doing.
You can completely exclude the results of any TV that doesn't match certain criteria. You can choose from any of our measurements. By default, we automatically exclude all TVs that aren't on the latest test bench.
To generate the recommended TVs, we use the same logic as the "beaten by" feature introduced a few weeks ago. You can understand how it works by looking at the generated chart of the ratings vs prices. The best TVs for the money are the ones that are cheaper and better than the other ones.
Each recommended TV is the best value in its price range. You should buy the one that matches your budget.
If you're logged in, you can save this custom rating to go back to it later. The URL is shareable, so you can send it to a friend to help them find the best TV for their needs based on what you think is best for them.
With this tool, you can find the best TV for your specific needs faster. Let us know if you have any feedback or other ideas for tools to make your research even easier.
