Television remains the main provider of information and entertainment for the vast majority of our compatriots. Moreover, even with the most negative attitude towards television as a phenomenon, it would be strange to make any claims to the television as a device. He's just not guilty of anything, and if you want to watch a movie on a more or less large screen with good resolution, it is difficult to find a worthy alternative to modern TV.

There are so many TV models themselves from various manufacturers on the market that it is almost impossible to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each. Price remains a good guideline for the 'average' user. Today's editorial rating review is devoted to the most massive price category of modern TVs – up to 30,000 rubles. Finding decent and multifunctional models that fit into this amount is more than realistic, and often it will be very decent TVs.

The best TVs with FullHD resolution up to 30,000 rubles

The main selection criterion when evaluating models, our experts in the framework of this review, determined the resolution of the TV matrix. And as the most basic parameter, it was decided to take the FullHD 1080p resolution (1920×1080 pixels). We did not consider 720p options due to the obviously serious lag in the quality of the 'picture' from FullHD. Here we remember that the TV does not have to be used to receive TV programs, but is often used as a home theater, and in this case, a resolution below FullHD is no longer quoted.
