Variety if great for the market, but in the world of TVs, a non-technical person could easily get lost. There are so many technologies and technical terms that it’s difficult to know which one you want. This is why the regular user is looking for more obvious features like price, diagonal length, and clarity of image (resolution in pixels). Still, do you really need that Ultra-HD behemoth with 3D features or would you be happier with a regular Television screen that supports HD resolution?

Type of Television & Requirements

Before finding out the type of TV you want to buy, you must identify your viewing needs. These vary according to the space you have available, the type of entertainment you’re watching, and the type of activities you want to perform with your TV.

The diagonal length and overall size

Given the fact that now we have 4K TVs the first impulse is the bigger, the better. Still, the size of your TV must be chosen in complete accordance with the room and space around. First of all, if you are limited by a cabinet or an entertainment center, you must make sure the TV you want will fit in. For this, you need to know how to measure the TV correctly.

What type of Television is Best?

If you are not limited by things around the TV, you are limited by space in the room. For example, if you can put a distance of 9 feet between the couch and the TV, then that 55-inch wide screen TV is not too big.

The type of content you want to enjoy

These days, getting your television programs directly from an antenna is extremely old fashion. With the rise of satellite TV and online streaming services, most users depend on additional hardware that connects to their TV. For example, you could be using either a TV Box (Apple TV, Android Box, or others) or one of the DIRECTV hardware equipment supplied by

This means that the TV must be equipped with the necessary ports in order to establish the connection to your service. This is why, before purchasing the TV, you must know the type of TV tech you will want to connect to it. Anyways, modern devices will always be equipped with at least one HDMI port and USB ports that allow the user to connect a large variety of external devices.

The panel type

Even though the acronyms LED or OLED don’t mean anything to you, they are important when it comes to your experience. First, you should know that most TVs in our living rooms are LCD with LED backlight. This type of panel is the most affordable right now and can be implemented on super-thin models.

Other panel types are LED, plasma, and OLED but these are rarely seen inside homes. For example, LED panels are only used for huge TV screens we see on stadiums or at concerts. Meanwhile, plasma panels are a bit outdated and bulky, but they manage to offer better image quality and are easier on the eyes.

OLED screens, on the other hand, offer the best possible quality of image, but they are extremely expensive right now. So, if you want super high-quality and the budget is not an issue, the OLED panel is the best for you.

So, yes, there are a few technical things you must learn before purchasing the best TV for your needs. But in the end, you will buy a modern device that will create the perfect entertainment experience for both you and the family.
