The size of TV that you decide to buy can be a very personal choice, but you may be interested to hear that there are some technical measurements that A/V designers use to help find the best screen size for any given room.


Measure the distance from your normal viewing chair to the TV in inches, then divide by 3 to give you a good starting point for a modern widescreen TV (eg. If you sit 96″ from the TV, you need at least a 32″ screen). For older “square” CRT televisions, the distance would usually be divided by 4 to give the minimum screen size.

There is no reason why you can’t go for a bigger TV than the size given by this formula, but we would not recommend using a smaller TV as this can lead to eye strain and give poor viewing quality.


To get the very best picture quality from HD and 3D sources, we can offer HDMI cables from this website to connect your Blu-ray and satellite tuner to your TV!
