Buying a television can be a tall task these days. There are so many different brands, styles, and features to consider when buying. It's not always easy to figure out which televisions have the latest offerings for the best price either. Before you go out and find the latest head to head review and decide you absolutely must buy the best television out there, it's a good idea to settle a few issues first.
What Size Television Is Best For Your Room?
It's tempting to run out and pick the biggest television you can afford. However, that isn't always the most logical thing you can do. In fact, depending on the size of the room you're buying the television for, you could be making a mistake that will subtract enjoyment from your television viewing experience.
Measure the distance from television to seating in order to determine the optimal screen size for your room. The general rule of thumb is that seating should be no farther away from the television than twice the viewing size.
At the same time, if you're sitting fairly close to the television, a larger television could prove uncomfortable to watch – if you want to take in the entire television. Measure the distance before you begin to make your plans so you'll know which sizes to consider when buying your television.
What Kind of Television Are You Most Interested In?
There are all kinds of fancy televisions on the market at the moment. They come in 3D, LCD, LED and plasma models just to name a few. These are all a matter of preference and purpose. Plasma televisions have been known to provide excellent pictures in the past. In many ways they were crisper and clearer than the average LCD television display.
The problem complaint for these however was from video gamers who noticed ghosting in some games where residual images overrode what was on the game during fast-paced games. This means that those who spend a lot of time playing video game almost universally prefer LCD and/or LED televisions.
LED Televisions are relatively new but are becoming widely appreciated for the bright picture clarity. Some believe that the LED televisions available compete with the plasma televisions, which seem to be disappearing in recent upgrades and updates, for a stunning viewing experience of light, brightness, and colour.
3D televisions are all the rage these days but they are not all created equal. Some of them are infinitely better than others. Here are a few things you might want to work out in your mind before you rush out and buy the best priced 3D television you happen upon.
• 3D programming is still limited
• Some 3D televisions require glasses while others do not
• is it really worth the price difference to you?
3D televisions are still the new kids on the block. This means they carry the shiny new toy price tag too. For many people the added expense isn't worth the costs involved in ownership just yet. It's better to buy a less expensive model of television and wait for better programming options before investing in a 3D television – at least for the moment.
Figuring Out the Best Pixel Pictures
For the most part, 1080p is going to provide the superior picture quality. If you're just looking for an inexpensive television for your family room and not overly concerned with a cinematic home viewing experience, then 720p will work for most home televisions. The resolution is good enough and the price is much more wallet friendly.
If, on the other hand, you're a true movie buff, and nothing but the best will do, you'll never be satisfied with anything less than a true 1080p picture performance. Then it is worth the additional investment as it will serve to enhance the overall experience and your enjoyment of your new purchase. Anything less for you will feel like you're missing out on something and be a purchase you're ultimately unsatisfied with.
When you take the time to do things right, your television purchase is one that should last for quite a while. Consider it an investment and don't pick the cheapest thing you find. Instead, consider the time you'll spend watching it and the number of years you plan to have it. Then see how much it's really worth to you.
