If your television is already at least five years old, you may want to invest in a new TV. But, because of the rapidly changing technology, many versions of televisions have been developed and introduced into the market. This makes picking the right TV overwhelming, especially in terms of deciding the TV size. Before you go into the specs of your desired TV such as the kind of TV to buy, picture quality, audio capability/AV inputs and outputs, smart features, and more, make sure you consider the tips below when buying a new one:
Consider why you are Buying a New TV
Are you looking to have the TV placed in your kitchen so you can watch your favorite show while cooking? If so, you will want to invest in a portable TV. But, if you are a sports fanatic and you want a huge TV to host parties at home, you will want a bigger version. Knowing exactly the purpose of your new TV will help you determine the best size. Once you know the size, you will also be able to pick one of the most suitable TV wall mounts.
Determine where the TV will Go
After knowing the purpose of the new TV will serve, you must consider which room you want to place it in. Thus, if you are getting a 60” screen set, you want to make sure you have the space to accommodate it. Also, the TV needs to be in a room that does not look awkward.
To have the best TV for the room, consider the rest of the decor of that room. If you want a big TV inside the living room instead of a huge set that sits on the floor, buy a 40” or a 46” LED TV that can hang on the wall. This TV usually complements the look of the room.
Decide How to Transport the TV
Are you planning to purchase the TV yourself and take it home with you? If so, ensure your vehicle is big enough to transport it. Smaller cars may not be able to fit any television bigger than 32”. Although a number of 40-inch sets can fit on the back set of most compact cars, be careful when loading it and ensure it does not bounce around and make possible safety hazards. If you are concerned about the ability of your vehicle to accommodate the TV, ask the store if they provide free delivery on bigger screen televisions.
