    What is the best screen size?

    When shopping for televisions, there are several factors to consider when deciding on what size will suit you. The most important factor that determines the screen size is the size of the room the television will be placed. A bigger room will need a bigger television. A small room with a bigger television screen size will be uncomfortable when watching. The recommended size is determined by dividing the viewing distance (in inches) by 3. With a viewing distance of 150 inches, the recommended screen size is a 50-inch television.

    Does the view angle matter?

    View angle refers to the off-angle axis when one moves away from the 0-degree axis perpendicular to the TV’s front flat panel. The larger the view angle, the better. This is an important factor to put into consideration before buying a television. If you will be watching the television from various positions in your room or you want your friends who visit and are sitting off the side of the screen to have a clear view, then you should get one with a larger view angle. Otherwise, you will experience blurred views on tight angles.

    4K Television or HD?

    Televisions with higher resolution are expensive. A higher resolution will deliver good picture quality, but this depends on the quality of the video. A low-quality picture will not look good on a high-resolution television. Therefore, before buying a TV, ensure that the video quality matches the resolution. There is no need to buy a 4K television if you do not have content for it because you are paying for something that you will not be using. You should probably go for an HD television rather than 4K because there isn’t lots of 4K content currently available unless you are buying for the future.

    What is the best display refresh rate?

    Refresh rates determine how fast images are redrawn on the screen. A 60 Hz refresh rate will work for most content. But the higher the refresh rate, the better the picture display. Images that move faster, such as football and Formula One racing, will look better on a TV with higher refresh rate. The refresh rates are available in multiple of 60 Hz. The higher the refresh rate, the more expensive the television.

    What features should I look out for?

    With technology and everything becoming smaller in size, the number of features that can be incorporated in a television are many. If you are a photo enthusiast, then look for a TV with photo viewing capability and should have enough memory or slot for a memory card. Other features that you should check include the type of video formats that it supports, the number of HDMI ports, whether it has a way for it to be hung on the wall, the new mirror cast functionality, connectivity with home theatres, and if it is possible connect older analogue kits. Focus on features you will actually use, and don’t be swayed by fancy features you know you don’t need.
