There are plenty of choices now for TVs that it is extremely hard to keep up with. There are the standard HD, enhanced HD, OLED, and 4K models, all which is enough to confuse you. But there has to be a way to walk through the minefield, especially when you are looking to spend some serious money.
Instead of giving you the fast facts about each of the different types of flat screen TVs, here are some general guidelines that will help you through the minefield to make sure you get the TV that is best for you.
For starters, you can be really stunned at the new 4K huge flatscreen displays shown at Best Buy and other stores. Yes, they are impressive. However , if you are buying them to watch free movies on, there are not a lot of choices, if any, to make because the video media has not yet been optimized to take advantage of all that technical magnificence. So hold on to your money until you are sure there is enough stuff out there to use with your $6K TV.
Next are all the advanced versions of HD flat screens, and yes, some of them are very good. So other than price, you need to first figure out where in your home or apartment you are going to put the thing. The bigger the TV, the bigger the room you will need to get the best effect and viewing angle. Being able to count the pixels is too close.
Another thing are the number of features. Generally, connecting a large flat panel to a home entertainment system is the best way to go because devices such as built in DVD players tend to cause more problem than solutions. For example, if the DVD player breaks down you cannot simply put in a new one. So keep the components separate from one another and save yourself some money in the long run.
Just remember to balance what you want and what you need. If you’re able to afford the wants without sinking into unmanageable debt, then go for it. If not, choose a flat screen you can build on later without spending an arm and a leg. You should shop around online to get user reviews, especially those that are done by users that have a confirmed purchase. Think it through, then live with your decision.
