Tips for Buying a New TV

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 170

TV's can be a little intimidating. Especially when you take into account that most store salesmen make a commission, which can make it feel you you're a piece of meat sometimes. When it comes to buying a TV, it's always best to do a little research before you go online or enter a store to buy. Some of the key things you'll want to inform yourself on are the different types of TV technology, resolution, planned use, mounting options, and brand popularity.

There are three main types of flat screen TV technology these days. They are LCD, LED, Plasma, or a combination of a couple of those. What must be understood is that if you you're into super fast action movies and/or fast paced video games, you'll want a plasma TV. They are currently built with the highest refresh rate of any TV out there. LED TV's are getting close, but they aren't quite there yet. With that said, you may want a 75inch TV. In that case you may want to scratch the plasma because it will be very heavy. As you can see in some instances you may have to sacrifice a little bit of quality for size or price.

When it comes to resolution, just make sure you snag a 1080p resolution TV. Specially if your into gaming or Blu-ray. Now if you're buying a TV for your kid or something small for the kitchen, resolution isn't as important.

How you plan on using the TV is probably the most important component of buying a TV. You may be planning on hosting a lot of quests in your theater room. In that case you'll probably want a very large LED or LED back-lit LCD. You may want it for your gaming room, so something like a 42inch plasma would be the best fit to support faster response times. In the case of needing a smaller TV for the kitchen, any of the three types might work.

Mounting options are something to think about long before you buy a TV. If you're planning on mounting the flat screen in your house, it's best to browse for TV wall mount reviews and familiarize yourself with all the options out there. The reason a wall mount is so important is because you can almost always find one to fit your needs. However that doesn't mean your TV can support the bracket layout of a given mount.

Brand popularity is just as important as anything else here. Go with the solid companies you know will produce and have a history of good support, couples with a solid warranty.

Searching for a TV can be a daunting task. The reasons in this article show that it doesn't have to be with a little preliminary research.
