A guide to buying widescreen televisions

Televisions come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They also come in a range of prices. The high number of televisions that are available can make choosing one very difficult. This article aims to give you a guide when it comes to buying widescreen televisions.

The size

Television screens range from five inches in length right up to one hundred inches in length. The most common size that people go for ranges from between 32 inches and 40 inches, but the size really depends on what you are planning to use the television for. It is said that if you are facing the dilemma of having a bigger or smaller television, you should go for the bigger size as most people claim that after buying a television that they wish, they had gone for a bigger size. Moreover, the further up the scale of size that you go for, the better value for money you get and so it is better to go for the bigger sized televisions.

Match the screen to the room

It is very important to match the size of your television to the size of your room in order to get the most satisfaction out of it. You do not want your TV to dominate the room that it is in too much, otherwise aesthetically, it will look out of place. Seating Seating is another important factor as if your television is too big in relation to the distance your television is from the seating, the picture quality will be greatly reduced and it can also cause damage to your eyes. In a perfect world, you want to sit no closer than 1.5 times the screen's diagonal measurement and no farther than twice that measurement to the TV. For example, for a 50-inch TV, you'd sit between 75 and 100 inches (6.25 and 8.3 feet) from the screen.

Price

The most important thing to a lot of people when it comes to buying widescreen televisions is the price of the television as they want to make sure that they get the very best electrical deals. Nowadays, you can pick up very cheap TVs that range between 32 inches and
40 inches for very good prices as they tend to be the cheapest TVs. Televisions that go further up the scale do get a lot more expensive - the biggest screens that come with HD or even 3D now, can cost over £1000. Therefore, price wise, we once again recommend that you go for a television that ranges between 32 inches and 40 inches in size.
