These days, Smart TVs are just so much more than a way to watch our favorite shows and stay connected with the news. We use them for music, social media, virtual visits with friends and family, as a way to browse the internet, shop, listen to audible books, etc…
Understanding screen size and knowing the approximate distance from your seat to the wall are key considerations when researching your purchase. TV size is measured diagonally from corner to corner. You also want to consider the resolution of the screen. It’s a really simple concept- the higher the resolution, the closer you can sit to the screen before seeing pixilation in the image. If you will be using your media center, a fancy name for your new fancy tv, in a smaller space- consider upgrading the resolution on your set.
Speaking of Size
Wall mounting your new television can add a foot or more of viewing space. This is especially important for people who like large sets.
Do Your Research
Arm yourself with the dimensions of your new space and consider how you’ll arrange your furniture. We found a helpful blog that gives more information on TV size, resolution and offers some great reviews.
