Tips For taking Care of Your TV
What size of television to buy
Do you always watch TV from the other side of the room? It’s time to upgrade.

Not so fast! You need to read these tips first…
1) Measure your viewing distance from the screen in feet, not inches or meters.
Take a tape measure and find the length of your TV from one end to the other.
Be sure to measure the distance from the center of your screen, not from where you’re standing. Remember that TVs have different sizes in different countries: 60″, 65″ or 70″ HDTVs sit on a larger screen and can be viewed more closely than one that’s 40″, 50″ or 60″. So take your actual viewing distance into account when you’re making your purchasing decision.
2) Determine how many people will be watching together.
More people watching at the same time means more cabling and more of a hassle. If you have a single TV, no problem. But multiple TVs require special solutions. Putting up multiple sets requires extra cabling and DVR-ready boxes, which can be expensive. Even worse: multiple TVs can cause image and sound quality problems due to signal interference (check out our guides on how to setup cable TV or cable/satellite DVRs for more information). So if you’re planning to watch TV with your whole family, start with one set!
3) White is always better than black.
If you’re going to spend money on a television, it’s worth spending that money on a quality set. And if you’re planning on using it for a living, like in an office or school, you’ll want to invest in some high-quality equipment.
When we test televisions, we always place them on a white background. This makes it easy to see if there is any color distortion (which can be very bad), as well as to look for pixelation during playback of HD content. The downside is that TV manufacturers use glossy coatings on their sets, and glossy TVs often show reflections that are distracting when viewed from certain angles. While this is not always the case, we typically prefer to go with a flat screen TV over a TV with glossiness—especially for daytime viewing.
4) We prefer LED TVs for night time use.
Most LCD and plasma TVs provide great picture quality during the day. That’s typically because of the backlights used in those TVs, which create the images you see on your screen by bouncing light from behind the screen to produce an image on a liquid crystal display. These LEDs are not only more energy efficient but also can be dimmed according to your needs, which is especially useful if you’re watching TV in a business with some lights on.
But when it comes to getting a good night’s rest, we prefer to recommend LED sets—especially if you plan to watch TV in a bedroom or office. Their flat screen technology means less glare and reflections, and they are easier on our eyes during those dark times.
5) Be sure to get a model with an HDMI or MHL port.
If you’ve got a smartphone, tablet or other Internet-enabled gadget, you probably already have a high-definition device that connects to your TV via HDMI or a MHL port (an alternate version of the same technology). These connections allow you to stream video and audio from your mobile device to your TV. If you want to use this with multiple devices simultaneously, such as your smartphone and your tablet at the same time, make sure that your television has these features.
