LED TVs nowadays come in a range of sizes each offering different resolutions.

The viewing distance is determined by how far or close to the TV you sit while watching.

The most important thing is to ensure that your field of vision offers you a great display.

The viewing distance should allow you to see all the details other than the screen pixels.

Today getting the right LED TV screen size for a given viewing distance has been made easier by some industry guidelines.

For example, it is recommended that you convert your viewing distance in inches and divide by three to come up with an appropriate screen size.

The location of the TV in the house

Most households have TVs in the living room and bedroom. It is therefore necessary that you know which room your TV will go into before deciding on the screen size.

Big screen sizes are good for the living room because of the space and viewing distance. Smaller screen inches are recommended for the bedroom.

Other people will also prefer to have a small inch television in the sitting room because they do not want the TV to dominate the room.

The safety of the TV

This has nothing to do with theft, it all settles down back to where you will mount the TV.

It is more like planning beforehand and knowing that you have the right resources to accommodate your television no matter the screen size.

So whether you are using a stand or a wall mount ensure it can hold your TV size and weight.

Just imagine what could happen if your new investment trips and falls. For those with children then wall mounting would be the most viable option.

On the other hand you can invest in a TV safety strap as well.

The screen resolution

Most consumers tend to believe that the higher the screen resolution the better.

However screen resolution is determined by three factors.

These include the footage, television size, and viewing distance. Today, it is very rare to come across a 720p LED TV. Instead the most common resolution is 1080p.



Purchasing a new television set is considered a significant expense by most households.

It is therefore mandatory that you take time to research and avoid making a rushed decision.

When it comes to LED TVs, resolution is the most important factor.

Choose wisely and you will never regret or feel played for years to come.
