If you don’t own one already, you may
be tempted to purchase a widescreen
digital television to enjoy your favourite
movies, shows and sports programs.
However, it can be difficult to select the
right screen size, especially if you’ve
been accustomed to viewing a TV with a
traditional 4:3 screen.
When it comes to size, there are many
factors that come into play, such as screen
resolution and personal preference.
However, the last thing you want is to
purchase an HDTV that is too small for the
room, or so big that it dominates the space.
Here’s a tip:
The rule of thumb is to take the distance
you’ll be sitting from the television and
multiple by five to get the screen size you
need. So if you’ll be sitting eight feet away,
you’ll want to look at HDTVs with screens
that are in the 35-45 inch range.
A good electronics dealer can help you
make the best choice.
