Many people enjoy watching the game at home. For the best experience you want to have a great television. Here are some things to think about when picking out your sports viewing television.
Size does matter.
There are a couple of things that need to be thought about regarding size. First of all think about what room your television is going to be in. You want to have enough space between you and the television so you are not right on top of it. Next, where is the television going to go? Do you plan on mounting it or is it going to be on a stand? Lastly, after everything is figured out decide how big you would like it to be. Televisions are measured diagonally by the size of the screen. I think that if this is going to be the main television that will be showcasing big events, like the Superbowl, you want at least a 46 inch TV. 50 and above is what I tend to see in most homes.
When you are shopping around for TVs you will see that some TVs might be “720p” or “1080p”. These are referring to the graphics display resolution. 1080p right now is the going to be your best choice. It’s going to be clearer than 720p. 720p is still HD but 1080p is better.
LCD, LED, Plasma?!
There are many different kinds of televisions on the market right now. Commonly you’ll see that the displays are either LCD, LED, or Plasma. It can be quite confusing. Basically these are different type of light displays. I personally like the LED because I think it gives the best picture quality. I don’t like the Plasma because Plasma televisions have a glass screen which means they are easier to break. In order to truly see the difference between these displays it’s best to go directly to a store that sells televisions to compare them. Ask the employees about the advantages and disadvantages of each display.
Figure out how you much you want to spend. Some factors that can determine the price are the size, the picture quality, the display, and the various inputs and outputs the television may have. Price shop as well. Look at different stores and see which one has the best price and warranty options. I suggest getting a warranty on your new television as it is a big purchase and you want to be covered in case something happens.
Connections are key.
In order to have the best picture you are going to need the proper connections. HDMI, which stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface, is the best cable available on the market right now. Make sure your television has HDMI imports. Most televisions on the market have more than one HDMI input. I suggest getting a television that has at least 3 HDMI inputs so you can hook up your cable or satellite, a Blu-ray/dvd player, and at least one gaming system.
