Isn’t it about time that you treated yourself to a fancy new smart TV? There are a few things to consider when it comes to buying a new TV, but the screen size and picture quality are the most important points to keep in mind. Luckily for you, eBay Australia is having a sale on its huge Samsung QLED smart TVs for up to 30% off.
Samsung is renowned for being one of the world’s top TV brands and for introducing its QLED range, which stands for “Quantum Light-Emitting Diode”. While it’s very similar to an OLED, a QLED is just an LED LCD TV that’s added quantum dots to its formula to create a more vivid display. Unlike OLED (which emits its own light), QLED is transmissive, so it relies on an LED backlight contained in the film to produce a better and brighter colour.
If a bright and colourful display is your preference when binging your favourite shows, then a QLED TV is your best bet. In exchange, you may sacrifice contrast — but that might not be so bad if you live in a home that’s filled with lots of natural light, since you won’t suffer from as much glare.
We’ve rounded up the best deals on eBay Australia right now, so you can hook up your living room with a new Samsung TV.READ MOREThe Best TVs at CES 2022

Take your viewing experience to the next level with Samsung’s 8K Ultra-HD smart TV. If you want a humongous gaming TV for your console, you won’t be disappointed.
In our review, we found that the graphics and colour popped on its big screen. Since it’s well-known that most QLED TVs don’t handle contrast well, we were pleased to discover that the dark reproduction was solid when playing games like Cyberpunk 2077 or Destiny 2.
As for streaming quality, the colours popped out of the screen without seeming oversaturated. We couldn’t find much to fault it for, although it’s RRP isn’t the most affordable. That’s why we were sold when we discovered that eBay had this Samsung TV on sale for a generous $1,364 off.
