# How to determine what size TV you should buy

It's easy to say that larger televisions are better, but the truth is that choosing the best TV for you brings many considerations beyond the sheer size of your new set. What is the ideal viewing distance? What about picture quality versus TV size? And where can you even find the dimensions of a television? You can not have the money for a super-expensive home theater, but that does not mean that you can not have the perfect TV for your home. Here are a few tips for choosing which size TV to buy in every situation.

### Will it fit in my TV room?

This is the first question you should ask yourself before buying a TV. Before you start shopping, decide where you want your TV. After selecting the location, measure the height, width, and depth of this spot. There may be limitations because of the size of an entertainment center or wall space. Later, when you buy a TV, you can compare it to the dimensions of the TV rather than the screen size to make sure the TV fits. Some 55-inch televisions have physical enclosures that are physically larger than others, so always look at the overall dimensions of the TV to get a specific answer as to whether it fits.

### How wide is the stand?

The second size related consideration is the connected state of the TV. If you do not want to place your TV against a wall, you'll need to use the TV's stand, and many of today's televisions have feet on the very edges. You need to make sure that wherever you plan, the TV is wide enough to hold the stand.

### How far away is the screen?

Next, think about where people will see the TV in the room. There are viewing calculators (here is another calculator) that can recommend a screen size based on where you sit. If you do not want to be involved with an online calculator, just think about this simplified calculation that you can do yourself: Measure the distance from your seat to the TV in inches and multiply by .84. That should give you the ideal screen size. (Just use the calculator on your smartphone.)

However, this method is not perfect. For example, if you were sitting 8 feet away from the TV, you would want to have an 80-inch screen, which is simply not realistic for most of us. For this reason, we recommend that most living rooms with a screen size of at least 50 inches work best. You can get as tall as you want, provided you're not sitting four meters from your TV.

### Size and Image Quality

There is a reason not only to shoot for the biggest TV you can get, and that has to do with image quality. If you're trying to maximize screen size based on budget, you'll probably find yourself getting a television the size of your budget, but you'll have to sacrifice some of the image quality. We think it's best to balance the size with the quality of the picture so you can enjoy it for a long time.

Finding the best new TV for you should not be a difficult process. With these tips, you will not have a problem finding a TV that fits your home and gives you the best quality. Remember to find the TV measurements, calculate the ideal viewing distance, and balance the image quality with the size.
