From a screen size of 43 inches onwards, all Metz TVs have 4K display resolution. 4K resolution refers to the number of pixels displayed on screen. 4K is the current latest technology and should be the gold standard for the next 3-5 years atleast. Also, apart from the 24 inch model, all the other Metz TVs also come with HDR support. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and makes the picture on your screen brighter and also provides more contrast.
Another thing to love about Metz TVs is that all TVs comes with a brand warranty of 2 years where your TV is protected against all kinds of manufacturing defects. This should provide significant peace of mind for users worried about a relatively unknown brand.
Let’s take a look at a summary table of the specifications for all Metz TVs available today. We have also included columns for the number of HDMI and USB ports available. You will notice that for the 43 inch and above models, 3 HDMI ports are available. This is great and makes life very convenient if you want to use a Set Top Box and a streaming device like a Chromecase or Fire Stick.[table “10” not found /]
Metz OLED TV
Metz is one of the few manufacturers in India who are offering an OLED TV. The OLED TV model is M55S9A. This is a 55 inch TV and will cost you just over 1.1 Lakhs on Amazon today. So what is special about OLED Televisions? OLED TV is the latest and greatest display technology available today. LED TVs work by having LEDs on the side or on the back of a plasma screen. The light from these LEDs is then passed through multiple screens before you as the viewer can see it. The thing about LED TVs is that individual LEDs cannot be turned off. Hence portions of the screen which need to displayed as Black cannot be shown as completely black. Hence LED TVs are known as a transmissive display technology. OLED displays on the other hand are a category that is known as emissive display. Emissive displays like OLED can be turned on and off selectively. This is possible due to the thinness of the OLED panel. Due to this, parts of the OLED panel can be turned completely off. This leads to amazing contrast ratios and you will experience never before seen clarity on-screen.
As with all new technologies though, there are still some things that need to be ironed out. OLED TVs are known to have shorter lifespans than LED TVs. This however is changing rapidly and newer OLED TVs are almost on par with LED TVs when it comes to quality and lifespan. Another drawback is that OLED TVs can get really expensive, especially when the screen size is larger. You would have noticed that the price of the Metz M559A is about twice as much as comparable LED TVs. This might not change rapidly, however do expect costs to come down in the future.
The Metz M55S9A comes with 4K display technology. It has HDR support and is a Smart TV with Android certification. Another specialty of Metz TVs is that the speaker comes with a linen cloth screen. The cloth screen provides more natural sound with better consistency, especially at lower frequencies. While the hardware on this OLED TV is fantastic, the software is still catching up. You might want to consider purchasing a streaming device to go along with this TV as well.
