TV Buying Guide 2019

TVs have come a long way in the last decade. Now, more than ever, you can get high quality for low prices. But there’s one catch: you have to decide which one to get! As far as first world problems go, struggling to choose a TV is up there. But it’s a problem nonetheless; there are just so many options that the decision can feel impossible. Luckily, we’ve put together a bit of a buying guide for your TV selection in 2019. With these tips, you can narrow down your options and, hopefully, come away with the TV that’s perfect for you.

Smart TVs: the latest and greatest in home entertainment

When it comes to the latest in technology, we like to think we’re hard to impress. But we had no hesitation in being blown away by the quality of the latest smart TVs. As each model is released, more and more potential is unlocked. But, better still, smart TVs are more interconnected than ever before. They can talk to any number of connected devices in your home, to create a viewing experience like no other. With a 2019 smart TV, you have access to the wide world of the web, as well as all the classic TV applications. Then there’s accessibility around the house; smart TVs are well within the internet of things, meaning they actively integrate into your home’s technosphere. The purpose: to create the ultimate experience for you.

Choosing a TV for your home theatre room

Now that we’ve got our own excitement out of the way, it’s time to get into the nitty-gritty of TV selection. That means going room by room, to work out which TV is the best for you. And what better place to start that journey than the home theatre. Home theatres are specialist rooms. They are there for one purpose, and that purpose is viewing. So choosing the right TV is paramount. But, the right TV isn’t necessarily a TV in the traditional sense. In our experience, the best choice for a home theatre room is a projector. Projectors offer larger, but more space efficient viewing. At the end of the day, you can get far larger images, without sacrificing quality, with projectors as opposed to screens. The cost is usually lower as well, so it’s hard to go past.

Choosing a TV for your living room

If projectors offer such a good cost/size ratio, why not have one in every room? Well, there are a few impediments. Most notably, projectors require darkness. Ambient light is the bane of all projectors, and ambient light is usually prevalent in living rooms. As a result, your choice of living room TV ought to be a food old fashioned screen. Of course, we don’t mean old fashioned in a literal sense… TV screens are better than ever, and you can get ones with quality that will blow you away. Matched with a good sound system, you can get almost as immersive a viewing experience in your living room as you can in your home theatre. Our personal favourites are the panoramic models. They offer exceptional size and an almost imperceptible curve that provides the perfect viewing angle, from any angle!

Choosing a TV for the bedroom

Let’s take things down a size again, and look at bedroom TVs. Bedroom TVs normally get a fair bit of use, which means you want good quality out of them. But space is also likely to be at a premium, which means you can’t go for a huge screen. Cost is also a consideration; once you’ve fitted out the rest of your home with AV gadgets, you mightn’t have too much left in the budget. That’s why we would recommend one of the more affordable and smaller screens on offer. These still provide great viewing quality; most money is saved on size. With the money you save getting a slightly smaller screen, you can get professional wall mounting services. That will ensure the best in viewing angles, and neck comfort.
