Size really does matter with Plasma TVs

In this age of the slim-line, digital televisions many consumers forget one important factor until it is too late. That is the size of the room that this superb new innovation is going to sit in.

It is too easy, when confronted by an array of sets, to go for the biggest and best but caution is needed here. Don’t forget that most screens are displayed in huge, high ceilinged stores where they actually look smaller than they actually are.

You are more likely to be standing back from the screen without checking your normal viewing distance which will add to the desire to get the biggest one!

Before going to the store to buy a High-Definition TV, check out the room this new purchase is going to live in. Do you want it to be wall or ceiling mounted or will you use the free-standing equipment that is normally supplied with each set?

Then measure the viewing distance from your favorite chair/s. Also measure wall space and suitability (if you have hollow walls this may cause a problem).

Finally, choose the best you can afford. Although these screens are coming down in price it will be some time before they reach the levels that we are used to with ‘normal’ TVs.

There is no point in trying to get the best bargain by buying some unknown brand only to find that the problems start almost immediately. There are many cheaper imports out there which do not have the technology or quality to withstand normal use.
